or also known as overalls.
everyone had a pair. it had to be about 1990, 91. i was in 7th grade and i remember wearing mine out. i wore them just about every friday to the y (ymca) for teen night. swore i was cool. i had a dark denim pair and i used to always wear this blue and black stripe turtle neck underneath. we wore them with the straps up, one strap down, or both straps down.
sgb has a modern day version of skinny jean overalls - i posted them about a month or so ago.
