Hello

I've purchased WW2 ATS denim overalls (one piece) - I just want to ask you how to wear them.
With low brown shoes or brown boots?
If with brown boots - with gaiters as well?

Thanks!


Blanka

Dear Blanka,

You wear the ATS Denim Overall without the gaiters, in reference to 'British Women's Uniforms page 48.
I do wear the overall with low brown shoes, but the book doesn't give any information about the matter.

Hi Blanka
The purpose of overalls is that you would wear them over your uniform. So if you wear gaitors you would be wearing them with your uniform but the overalls would cover them up and it would look like your not wearing them. For the same reason they would be worne over BD and so boots rather than shoes.

So generally I would say no to gaitors and shoes, but as with everything if it was warm it, is possible that it was done, if the overall was worn without the uniform underneith. There is also photos of the Queen wearing denims (2 peice) with shoes.
Hope this helps.
Frank
