The French farmer will rarely be seen without his ‘bleu de travail’ workwear. It’s for sale in all the agricultural shops in country areas. I’ve seen second hand sets in the local second hand shop ‘Emmaus’ (a national brand of second hand shops like the ‘Trocs’).  I love them and am going to get myself a set – although I doubt I’ll look as dapper as these two! Here’s an interesting blogsite about historical french workwear dating from the 1920s http://lebazardespoilus.tumblr.com
