Bib overalls are perfect for a great many situations, but they do have a couple of draw backs. The thicker material tends to be warm in the summer and for some jobs a bit of coverage on the arms is useful.
That’s were a coverall comes into play. Some people call them overalls ... some people call them boiler suits. Just don’t call them a onesie. Traditionally they are made from a lighter material than a bib overall and are designed to be worn over other workwear.
We’ve worked with Boyds Printworks to produce our own branded overalls. We’ve kept to the traditional Navy blue and added an embroidered patch Tinker and Fix logo.
The overalls are made from a heavy weight cotton with a button up front and two side pockets. As the name implies they are designed to be worn over the top of other workwear, hence they have a loose, relaxed shape and fit.

For me they come up close to my normal T-shirt size. In the photo's I'm wearing an XL and thats my "normal" size in most things. (sleeve length looks a little short in the photo, but they are a standard length ... its just that I have long ape like arms and have this issue with most jackets etc)
These aren't a gendered fit and Louise can get away with wearing a XS. She's a UK 10 and 5'7". She wouldn't be able to wear heavy winter thermals under them, and the Smalls are a little too big for her.
