Student Overalls

You might be wondering “What on earth are these students wearing?” when you attend a Finnish student event.

Student overalls (sometimes called student boilersuits) are an essential part of Finnish student culture. Students sew badges that they get from events on the overalls. Some badges can also be bought. The color of the overall displays what the student is studying.

The overalls are ordered in the beginning of studies for those you want them.
