This Is Where Overalls Come From

Universal Overall Company

It’s not all bars and lofts in the West Loop.  There are still some factories amid the converted warehouses.  One of them is Universal Overall Company (1060 West Van Buren Street).  Overalls have to come from somewhere, and this is it. I don’t know why I find this picture funny.  Maybe I just like the sound of the word overalls.  Overalls.
