    jumpsuit |ˈjəm(p)ˌso͞ot|
    noun
    a garment incorporating trousers and a sleeved top in one piece, worn as a fashion item, protective garment, or uniform. ORIGIN 1940s (originally US): so named because it was first used to denote a parachutist's garment.

    here's where we laugh at, I mean, talk about how cool jumpsuits are.

    Anyway, I briefly tried this last winter but couldn't find the right body/leg length combination.

    I think the only tolerable option is something similar to that Harnden model aka old workwear 1:1 copy : cotton twill, buttons front, wide legs.

    A cheap and readily available milsurp option that fits those criteria is the old US army type 1 coveralls in od green sateen cotton from up until the 1970s or so (I think), there's a later version that's still 100% cotton but with velcro closure, which sucks.
    You may need to size up.

    ^ that looks really cool to me :blush: love the pockets.

    utilitarian fabric and design seems to jive better with this than the desginery luxe versions.

    What I actually look like if I wear a jumpsuit:


    But this has not stopped me from wanting to get a jumpsuit.

    Well you've convinced to give the US army type 1 a try: I mean, for $30 on ebay, there's nothing to lose

    I have a few sets of coveralls that were Marine Corps issued that I use when I'm working on Jeep or helping my father-in-law on his old Model As and Model Ts but, no matter how cool some of the photos I see of folks wearing them in other settings look, I just cannot bring myself to wear them outside of the garage.

    ^ yeah, it's a very deliberate choice to wear them as fashion, outside of the utilitarian purpose.

    a few more random photos:

    Nah, that’s a jumpsuit and looks dope as hell. Think I’ve seen fotos of both him and Paul wearing them... Captain Sensible too, perhaps?
