Hey guys,

did you wear your overalls at school? And if so, did you wear them openely or hidden?

Well, I used to wear overalls quite often at school. Sometimes more often, sometimes less. I started our wearing them covered by my jacket or sweater. I was always very anxious about it, but after I had to show them publicly while undressing before PE, I wore them openly after that. Not only that I went to school without anything to hide it, I began to wear them more often.

But I got also bullied a lot fot it. Well, I got bullied in general, but with overalls it kinda made it worse. Other boys made fun of me and actually pulled me by the straps to ridcule me. I like getting pulled by the straps in private, but this public humilation was really embarassing and uncomfortable. I guess it's quite a difference, if someone who likes you doesit for fun or if someone just wants to be mean.

One day it kinda escalated and I got pulled and carried by my overalls from one of the stronger kids over the hald schoolyard. It was a really painful and embarassing situation - I still hate this guy for doing this to me today!

But even though I got more carefull after this, I actualyl did not stop wearing overalls. It took me some time again to get my courage back, but I wore them openly again.

I guess you just have to carry on and be strong to wear what you like. But I wonder, if there are others here who happened to have such a hard time at school (or other places) for wearing overalls?

Talking about it sure helps!

Well, seems I went to school a few years too late.

As a child born June 1989 I was also too young to enjoy wearing bib overalls as teenager when they were very popular. The "golden era" of bibs fell into my kindergarten epoch. Unfortunately I don't have much memory from this time anymore. :(
I also was bullied at school during puberty, but not because i've been wearing bibs (I had none in this time).

Nowadays in society anything moderately out there is considered "too different" to accept.

It all depends on your mind set and whether you care enough of what people think of your clothes to judge you.

I tried it only once, in kindergarden class of 1990 (b1984). One full day of "look a boy in GIRLS pants" - mostly from the girls actually - was enough to not attempt that ever again. By that time overalls had already (at least in northern Europe) been labeled a distinctly girl thing to wear - and it is still perceived as such to this day.

I wore overalls like crazy out of school however. Lightwashed denim were my favorites, and I got a new pair whenever they were available and I could persuade my parents to buy them. I would run straight to my room when coming home from school and change into overalls. I rarely spend time with my classmates out of school so this was easy, and if there were any chance I would run into other kids, I would wear something over them.

I outgrew my final pair in the 1997 or 1998. By that time it was seriously hard to get overalls in sizes of a fast growing teenage boy in this part of the world, and I didn't get to wear overalls again for a very long time. I never really stopped hoping I would pick it up again some day, and finally a couple of years ago, I seized the opportunity. Now I own 8-10 different pairs (thanks asos!) and wear them proudly in public!

I never wore bib overalls back in the 1990's when I was in school. I didn't know which stores carried bibs at the time.

Several guys and girls in my classes wore overalls the proper way, with both straps on their shoulders and fastened to the bib. I couldn't help feeling slightly excited and aroused at the sight of another classmate in overalls. However, I felt too embarrassed to compliment them on their fashion, or ask where they had bought their overalls from.

A few students wore their overalls with one strap unfastened and hanging down their back -- or with the bib down. I despised that style and thought it look rather dorky and stupid. It's like buying an umbrella when you live in a climate where it never rains. The reason people buy overalls is because they like the bib against their chest and the straps that hold it up.

People wear overalls for different reasons (and to each his own!). Personally, I do it, not because I particularly like the feel, but because I like the look of the extra denim and how that particular look makes me stand out a bit. To that end, I definitely think the one-strap look has merit if it makes sense for the particular outfit (eg. if you have some print in your tee that you would like to be visible, in addition to the bib), and I do it myself on occasion.

I fully agree with you about the bib down look though, that is just pointless and super impractical, in addition to looking stupid. Despite it being a distinctly 90s thing, there are still pontiffs in the fashion blogoshpere that want to give the impression that this is now the only way bibs should be worn as a fashion statement. Rather sad relly...
