Herringbone Twill (HBT) Fatigue Coverall


The WAAC/WAC herringbone twill coverall was one of the first work attires, which was used by the female workforce of the US Army during WW2. Originally designed for drivers and mechanics it quickly was adopted for all duties of service. Early examples of the WAAC/WAC coveralls were made of light shade herringbone twill but later in the war coveralls also were produced from dark shade HBT material. The WAAC/WAC coveralls featured significant differences to the men`s version and these were mainly the lack of tool pockets on the hip as well as the additional bottom flap. This flap, also known as the “service flap” enabled the wearer to relief oneself without removing the whole coverall and therefore making field live easier. However, since the coverall was considered as ill fitting a two-piece HBT ensemble was also introduced in the mid-war period, which replaced the coveralls.
