Weellll, I ah, er, have a pair of those. (should I admit that?) Use
'em for work clothes when I have to grovel on the ground under a
vehicle. Most comfortable article of clothes I've ever worn. I
think the deal is, you have to reach a certain age before your "I
don't give a damn what anyone thinks" gene is mature enough to let
you wear 'em in public.
The other pair of work coveralls I have are the bright oranges ones
used at the jail. You ought to see the looks I get when I wear 'em
to the auto parts place and people see the "Bradley County Jail
Inmate" printed on the back :-) I'm 6'7"/330 lbs so I have to take
my clothes wherever I can find 'em to fit. Jailhouse surplus
