I remember in the late 70's seeing union suits of all colors a store in Delaware, but have not seen anything since, back then it was what some guys wore with there bib overalls including myself.
I agree they are defernt,it is the first time that I have seen
bright green unionsuits.was at a store looking for other stuff and
just happend to see them and seeing that green is my favorite color
I just had to have them so I grabed the only six that they had in
my size.

You know I don't know why but I hate that cream color, when I get new longjohns I always bleach them to turn them white, it takes a lot of washings.

I love bright white lj's more.

I don't believe old_hippie is union-suited at all. I heard a rumour that he is a closet Confederate-suit wearer.

I'm not wear suits but for the past 2 months have been wearing 2 pair of thermals, I wear an older set of rachel knit against my skin and a brand new pair of waffel knit on top.

If your into thicker long johns K mart has some nice ones in the sporting goods dept. the name on the wasit band is INDERA, for 9 bucks each top or bottom they are nice.

They are 50/50 poly cotton so they dry fast, not like the snowdrift brand used to be they were very thick but all cotton that took forever to dry.

I've never really understood why some men wear underwear under their long underwear - I mean it's underwear is shouldn't need anything else

However I've always found Union Suits tend to gape at the front and my dick tends to fall through that gap Underwear under a Union Suit is perfect for keeping all your bits together so now I'm quite happy in my Union Suit and briefs.

(Although it is a bit of a pain trying to go for a shit and having to get your briefs down and manage the flap at the same time )

Wearing a union suit and going to the toilet is a real pain in the ass, I found a suit at Cabelas years ago that has a zip back, the zip is shaped like a half circle and it runs up from the back of one thigh to the other.

It was a great designe but Cabelas stopped selling them, I guess they didn't sell well, If I could buy more like that I would wear suits more often.

I might add the front had a zip also, a 2 way zip, this stopped the gape at the fly, and was easy to open the zip from the bottom to take a leak

I remember having a blue like that at one time.
also why did they quit making unionsuits with the 3 or 4 button
back flap,was better then just the slit.
