About Painters Overalls
Henry Fonda as Tom Joad in "Grapes of Wrath" and Charlie Chaplin in "Modern Times," — some of film's most iconic workers and farmers wore painter's overalls. This style has practically been the uniform for hard working people for the better part of a century. Sturdy fabrics like twill, canvas, denim, and corduroy hold up well under hard wear and tear, which is important while doing jobs like painting, digging, hammering, and nailing. The overall pant style protects your skin from paint splatters and dust, keeping you clean while you are hard at work. Traditional painter's overalls are white, as most house paint colors are light and splatters show up less on white fabric, but you can also find lots of blue denim and other dark colors for dirtier jobs. If you are a professional painter, gardener, or construction worker, you can wear overalls as sturdy and durable work wear. However, they also make great attire for doing those DIY projects around the house and garden. Whether you are a professional or just want something to wear while you do your own home maintenance, you can find a large inventory of men's and women's overalls on eBay.
