On The Street……..Couple Of One-Piece Dressers, New York

I love when style travels in pairs.
I have always thought about wearing a jumpsuit like this guy but I have never been in s situation that I thought to myself “If only I had worn my jumpsuit”. If it was light weight enough maybe as a swim cover-up on a cool California evening while having one of the cookouts on the beach – unfortunately we don’t have many of those in Manhattan

    I thought the jump suit when out when Pete Townshend grew up. Just showing my age I suppose.

    the jump suit is not out; it is very much in. not, however, when it is tailored like that, rolled up, and paired with what appear to be birkenstocks.

    That woker-chic-look is so hot!

    I have two jumpsuit stories. Be forwarned, this post is long … but as you will see, I have great nostalgia for the jumpsuit … and I’m not even that old … yet!

    First: My great-uncle, who has lived in Berkeley since way before the Summer of Love, literally lives in jumpsuits. Other than the black open-collar suit he wore to my grandmother’s funeral, I have only seen him in one of what I believe are just two classic jumpsuits (with the metal buckle in the front) that he has owned for years. Let me reiterate. My uncle’s daily choice of clothing is, yes, the jumpsuit! I am dying to tell you his profession, but I do not want to disclose to much information … Needless to say, I think I have a book …

    My other jumpsuit story is from a generation closer to my own. The setting is “Wild Wonderful West Virginia”. After coming off the river, an old boyfriend, who was a kayaker/barristo, would lounge on the front porch, usually with a beer in hand, in a jumpsuit, of course … much more comfy than a wetsuit, afterall.

    Not too long a go, I kissed a visiting sculptor from Japan who melted my heart while he was wearing — a grey jumpsuit and clear plastic goggles! So, that’s a third story.

    It takes a special kind of guy to pull off the jumpsuit.

    I didn’t mean to write so much, but, Sarto, thanks for the photo!

    Somehow he does carry this off. (Perhaps it’s Stella McCartney?!) But I doubt many guys could get away with it. It’s like walking a tightrope – one false move or a flash high wind and you’re gone.

    Just thought I’d pick a nit. The fellow in your photo is wearing coveralls, not a jumpsuit. Coveralls are, as the name implies, garments designed to cover and protect everything worn, or not worn, underneath. When I had a real job, truck driving as opposed to lawyering, I always carried a set of coveralls to don over my uniform if I had to work on the truck. A jumpsuit, strictly speaking, is designed for flying, and potentially jumping out of, airplanes. The designs of the two garments differ based upon their differing functions.

    Now I recognize that, when transported from the world of the utilitarian to the world of fashion, the one piece outer garment has been called a jumpsuit, whatever its design origin. But, as best I can tell from the picture, your subject is wearing a real set of coveralls, not a fashion item, and he should be given proper credit for doing so.

    Yours truly,

    Dickie Carhartt

    I once wore a Chevron mechanic’s coverall for Halloween, complete with my own windshild wiper fluid and a greasy rag hanging out of my pocket. I looked better than him.

    She’s cute, though.

    The cute shaggy hair, glasses and self-deprecating look help him to get away with it. Oh well. I guess it’s hot in New York…time to bring out the boiler suits. (Boom tish.)

    Dickie Carhartt, your comments were very enlightening. i love how we can have such serious conversations about fashion and clothing on this website. sart has really created such a great online space. sart, you rock!

    his coveralls remind me of pajama onesies… he’s cute, and i can imagine getting him in bed and ripping the whole thing off of him in one fell swoop…

    Dickie Carhartt- now THAT is a sense of humor, well played sir! I got a great laugh out of that one!

    Both of them have their own style but they’re definitely together. I cannot imagine they left the house planning to be one-piecers but there they were. They look like they would be a lot of fun to hang out with.

    she’s beyond adorable with her large glasses, handmade jumper and cobbled shoes—she makes him look good. he’s lucky to be standing next to her.

    There is a thin line between a baggy jumpsuit and sweats pants. The Birkenstocks change the rebelliousness of the jumpsuit all together. Untied boots would have given him more of an edge.
