    I always think of these:

    From Sears 1902.

    I remember real old-timers talking about them. And the drop back flap ones.

    Used to be cold and rugged out there, we're basically spoiled now.

    Oh, I guess I should have done that the first time instead of laughing and choking on my dinner. OK Alpo, I apologize. At least I have one Allie on here. :D

    Alpo, :bow:

    I have a brown union suit that I used to wear when I went hunting. I don't think I could get my big butt in it now!! I have often wondered exactly why it's called a union suit.

    Ask and ye shall receive an answer. Might even be the right one. :D

    According to Wiki - The first union suit was patented in 1868 as "emancipation union under flannel".

    So I guess it's a "union suit" because the guy that invented it called it that.

    Nope, that's a real tie. And if you look real close, the knot is incorrect. I haven't tied it right for years. I guess I get the last laugh. :D
