The union suit is a classic garment: simple, basic, comfortable and functional (…you can’t get more functional than a bum-flap.)
For me, this traditional one-piece evokes images of rural, brute, workin’-class men, chewing tobacco, chopping wood, and cussing like nobody’s business.
We looked around for our union suits for months. After numerous failed attempts, we resorted to ordering them online from a company that has been manufacturing union suits since waaay back when union suits were fashionable (I am talking turn of the 20th century here.)
And guess what came in the mail this morning?!?
Dangling crotches aside, I’d say we look pretty sharp.
