Since 1844 LAFONT has been an integral part of French workwear, providing clothing for métiers as varied as carpentery, stonemasonry and car mechanics.  The brand specializes in the provision of safe and durable, yet comfortable and stylish workwear, to companies and craftsmen across a wide range of industries.

Dedicated quality control teams carry out numerous controls at every key stage of the manufacturing process, from the design stage (pattern making) to tailoring of the finished product.

Lafont retains the undisputed paternity of the authentic working blue.

Hijacked early on by aristocrats who wore LAFONT’s overalls while pruning their rosebushes, or hip New York freaks from the 70s, or Sophie Marceau in "La Boum", or Coluche onstage, Lafont is the happy owner of timeless cuts patterns. "

Worship side


It’s easy to picture the skillful mechanic in his spotless white coveralls, working under an Aston Martin at an auto race track or, why not the handsome pilot inspecting the propellers on his plane…

The mechanic’s coveralls have been diverted by women since the 70’s and had their glory days at the start of the 80’s. Since, they have been reinterpreted countless times by the greatest fashion houses. However, despite a few detours, we will always stay loyal to the original model, the authentic coveralls of Lafont.

Sure, the coveralls “cover all” but may be worn with their sleeves and legs slightly rolled up, to reveal fine wrists with large bracelets and tanned ankles. 

The zip holding the piece together allows you to adjust your cleavage to your taste and mood. Wear a simple tank top underneath and zip down as low as you like, or nothing at all and unveil as much as you dare.

Contrary to popular belief, anyone can wear coveralls! It’s just a matter of selecting the style that best enhances your body shape. If you are slim, choose a large model or go up a size and play with the volumes in a boyish style, so charming on a petite silhouette. If you are curvy, a more fitted style with a large belt will emphasize your feminine outlines. The tough, no stretch cotton fabric will soften with use and washes without ever compromising its solid quality.

The mechanic’s coveralls are not just a fashion essential; they are the archetype of sexy. It’s a strong statement piece that offers a complete look on its own, put it on and off you go! Let the accessories do the rest; big bracelets, heels, high heels, even higher heels and a belt (but not necessarily).

For men, perhaps a tribute to “Clockwork Orange” or simply because of the perfect cut.
