If there’s one clothing item that is comfortable as well as fun to wear, it would be dungarees. People bored of styling their outfits with jeans and pants are recommended to try dungarees and set a new trend.
This apparel was first introduced as a work dress for mechanics, architectural labourers, technicians, plumbers, etc. When its interesting design grabbed the attention of male celebrities, rock stars and fashionistas, it turned out as a highly followed fashion trend.
Men’s Dungarees: Everything you should know about
If this is your first time buying men’s dungarees, here are some things you should know about.
Are men’s dungarees overalls?
The term ‘overall’ is interchangeably used for dungarees because there is no such difference between the two outfits. Like dungarees, overalls are also characterized by bottoms joined seamlessly with upper-body wear and supported by adjustable straps. A shirt is worn under both menswear.
Are men’s dungarees in fashion?
Popular since they were introduced, men’s dungarees have become a must-have now. Plus, given how they make the wearer look, they are only expected to rise in popularity. Besides denim, corduroy dungarees are also trending among young boys with a style of leaving one of the two straps unbuttoned. In addition, dungaree shorts seem to stay voguish throughout summer.
What should I wear under men’s dungarees?
Men’s dungarees are simple and easy to style. T-shirts, mostly half-sleeved, create the best combination with dungarees. Since dungarees usually come in dark colours, people prefer to wear white tees for a subtle summer vibe. However, you can also pair some bright-coloured t-shirts to complete a casual getup. If it’s winter, a roll-neck shirt will look awesome.
For footwear, you can go with any pair of sneakers or trainers as you like. Boots can also be worn under full-length dungarees, but not with short ones. Avoid wearing slippers and sandals, though.
Should a men’s dungaree be loose or fit?
Men’s dungarees offer various fittings, including loose, baggy, fit, and skin-fit. The loose and baggy fit makes the wearer look super funky and casual. For a sober look, you can go for a regular fit as it looks decent. Moreover, those who have a robust build should also pick fit dungarees. In regular fitting, you can hang one strap and button up the other for a more stylish look.
Is there a difference between jeans and men’s dungarees?
Except for fabric, there is nothing common between jeans and dungarees. Jeans start from the waist and end around the ankles. However, dungarees involve sleeveless upper wear and pants stitched together as a one-piece garment. The shirt is to be tucked in the bottoms. In the case of jeans, the wearer decides whether he wants to tuck in the shirt or not.
Men’s dungarees have become a fashion staple today. The thick fabric provides sufficient insulation during frosty weather. And in summers, you can don an attractive look by wearing dungarees along with a round-neck, half-sleeve, plain t-shirt. So, it would not be an overstatement if we call dungarees all-season menswear.
