What Do You Call These Things?

Earlier today, we were talking about these badboys. We always wore them in school, to divide our gym classes into teams. In my school, we called them (and this sounds a bit gay) ‘pinnies.’ Julie’s school (and this sounds way gayer) called them ‘dickies’. What do you call them?

    I think my school called them pinnies. Oh wait… we went to the same school.

    D’oh!!!

    Definitely pinnies! Ooooh, Imo I think you’re right, how the heck did you know that?

    In the UK, we tend to call them bibs. Not quite so gay, just infantile.

    In Ireland they’re ‘bibs’ or ‘skins’. Skins came from when we didn’t have bibs and one team would play without tops on.

    Jerseys, despite possible confusion between actual jerseys and these crude imitations.

    We also called them bibs … forgot until David & John mentioned it. Bad gym class memories … must’ve blocked ’em out …

    They’re called bibs, here in New Zealand. Must be our British heritage :-)

    Is it Barefoot as Surname or because this generation got no sole?

    Zing. That’s pretty good, actually. Of all the barefoot jokes I’ve heard in my life, that’s one of the better ones. DB.

    Yeah, we called them pinnies. Julie is confused, though. Dickies are kind of like fake turtleneck sweaters that you wear under a jacket. It just makes you look like you have on a real turtleneck, only there is just a little square of fabric front and back underneath your jacket.
