The Steinbeck Overalls

Steinbeck Overalls APC

“Overalls are back this season.” (I’m just quoting net-a-porter, personally I hate them except on toddlers.)

The Steinbeck overalls in chambray, by A.P.C., are ‘a breathable cotton and linen blend.’  $365

I know this is exactly what Steinbeck had in mind when he wrote The Grapes of Wrath

    Why why why??? Toddlers, yes. Grown men who are really farmers, ok. Men who wear them shirtless or with tank tops, hell no. $365 would have kept the poor Joad (?) family going for two years!

    I personally love overalls. Not the Steinbecks but vintage ones. I have been wearing them since I was a teenager in the 60s. Easy to throw on over a tank & you’re done. & really comfy if you’re at the end of pregnancy when nothing fits. The APC ones are a joke, however. I don’t think the working man’s clothing was meant to cost almost $400. I guess those are meant to be worn when drinking artisanal wine. : )

    I’m seeing them everywhere, and as a cow . . . they scare me. I think they’re coming to take away my calf and milk me with those metal milk suckers.

    I used to have a pair of overalls very similar, except mine were denim (about the only denim I ever owned) and very tight and very sexy. In fact, I had a bit of trouble sitting down and also keeping the boobs in their defined area.
    Ah, them were the days!
