The overshirt has a complicated and intriguing history. The latest carnation is an amalgam of three or four casual garments, ranging from military undershirts to civilian work jackets.
Traditionally, three-pocket overshirts with revere collars and boxy cuts have their origins in early 20th century European workwear. Labourers, craftspeople and artists initially wore the overshirt to cover up their suits and ties in an era before uniforms. The breast pocket was a convenient addition to stash tools adding further practical features for the wearer.
Chunky four-pocket overshirts with bellows pockets on the chest have a more utilitarian look, and their origins lie in the shirts worn by British soldiers at the turn of the 20th century. Troops deployed to Europe would be issued shirts with practical chest or hip pockets in cotton twill or flannel, which became a defining garment in their uniform.
