An original set of overalls in unworn, new old stock condition which were made by 'Bolenium' in the 1950s.
This style of overalls was very popular in the UK throughout the 1940s and 1950s. They are made from a khaki coloured cotton drill and feature pleated patch pockets to the breast, a separate waist belt, a patch pocket to the seat and a spanner pocket to the side of the right leg. The front fastens with 'Bolenium' branded metal buttons which are removable for washing purposes and the fly fastens with two piece metal buttons as are often found on late 1930s to early 1940s British military work clothing.
Inside the overalls is the classic Bolenium label which bears the maker's name in yellow set on a blue field. The words 'Super Overalls' are also present as is the size of 36.
The overalls are designed to fit a 36" chest and when laid flat they measure -
Chest - 19"
Inside arm - 20 1/2"
Outside arm - 25"
Shoulders - 16 1/2"
Inside leg - 30 1/2"
Cuff - 10"
The overalls are in excellent, unworn condition. They show no signs of previous wear or washing and are still a nice, deep khaki colour. Overall they display extremely well and are very wearable but please take time to study the pictures.
A very nice pair of original mid-Century overalls in excellent condition!
