This little vintage Sanforized blue overall is from my private archive. It’s a boys overall from Sanforized made in the 1940’s. These kind of overalls were worn by farmers in the U.S. This overall is a small one, waist size 20. Typical about these 1940’s workwear is the orange thread. It has only one fly button, donut button, and one top button with the brand name Sanforized on it. The pockets are fastened with flat rivets. Like the most overalls you could wear this with suspenders. The suspenders on this overall is fastened by hand and is an original Sanforized one but without the original buttons. The backpockets are simple, plain, without any arcuates. The overall is made of right hand non-selvage fabric. The overall is a true American workwear style.
