2) freaky awesome banana overalls. Made by clyde (the guy on the right) who strategically placed one banana .... for the ladies.

3) with my science fair thing

The important part is: some shallow twits think that wearing overalls to a nice restaurant is inappropriate. And that just makes feeds my humor needs.

Overalls are the best.

So just a simple question. What brand? I've been looking for longer lasting cloths and I can get a couple years out of a pair of Carhart's but I was curious if you know of someone making even more durable cloths?

When I was in school in the late seventies, overalls were popular for a short time. I never had any, probably because I had already endured bell bottom jeans and polyester which my mom picked off the dollar rack, years after those items went out of style. By the time overalls came along I was very wary of extreme departures from the norm. Imagine a kid wearing plastic "David Bowie" jeans when everyone else is in faded denim. Add to that an embarrasing religious affiliation and parents who fight at every public event. I couldn't afford the social risk.

Within a short time they were only worn by the girls and that was that.

They do look comfortable.

We believe in jungle chic here... in other words, you know those clothes donated to Salvation Army, etc.? What isn't sold is sent here in huge bundles and sold by the pound. You can get pants for a couple of dollars in the "American Clothes" stores. At first, I thought that meant American styles... nope, castoffs mainly, but good deals for sure.

What is hilarious is that the t-shirts usually have some saying, often very rude. But since people don't speak English, they don't know. But imagine being a North American and having the owner of a hardware story greet you wearing a t-shirt that says "Ask someone who gives a damn"

So is a recurring banana theme throughout your life a worrisome thing? A bizarre synchronicity?

And all this time I thought that in polite company we were supposed to pretend like we didn't know about he banana.

Key brand. With button fly.

two pairs will last me about two or three years.

I bought two more pairs a month ago and was told that these are the last that will be made.

I found 2 of those Mac overalls at a yard sale for $3 each. My brother's Christmas present.

Edison said that luck comes dressed in overalls and is disguised as work.

They still have a FEW left...

The factory used to be just down the road from me... Now it is just a faded sign on a decrepit building.

I'd recommend Fire Hose coveralls from Duluth Trading.
These will outlast Carharts, but are not button fly.
For their Fire Hose work pants, they advertise "If you ever bust them, tear them or rip them, return them to us and we will replace them."
They also have a fleece lined version, but they are not on the site right now (probably sold out with the Christmas rush).

I have dealt with them several times, and never been disappointed.

On any order over $50, there is free shipping with promo code T13PK11 (Valid until 2/1/14)
