In my estimation, these Button-Up Overalls from Kapital (available in navy and khaki green) are the dopest overalls on the market and I know the overalls market quite well. That's not a joke. A few things about these overalls: the straps appear to be detachable braces, meaning you could potentially swap in your own pair, if you happen to be the kind of person who owns braces. They feature a back cinch, which is an old school detail that will delight your denimhead friends and absolutely no one else. They also cost 465 USD, a hefty price tag for a garment traditionally associated with farmers, railroad workers, and Bubba Sparxxx, but that's how fashion works. Take a staple of the everyman, add a few bells and whistles to make it Lux As Fuck™, and sell it back to that very same everyman for ten times the price of the garment that inspired it. Think about it: nowadays, you could easily spend over a rack on a well-made trench coat, when, back in the day, you could get one for free just for fighting in World War I. What's a lungful of extremely deadly phosgene gas when you're wearing a cool coat? It's important to have priorities in life -RB
