Where did the myth or reality of hickory striped hats and striped overalls start for train engineers?
Every photo I have seen from regular, working railroaders, whether in action or posed for portraits, are in suits or "working man's" clothes. Some are in overalls, but none of those clothes are striped. I know about the polka dotted hats from Kromer, and I see those as more authentic than the striped variety because I have seen many pictures of them in use by railroaders.
Often bowlers, fedoras, and flatcaps are used, with some cadet-style hats as well. I find it weird for such an association of clothing with a profession where I cannot find images of that in use during any time of the steam era. Edited 1 time s.

The second pic shows the conductor wearing solid blue bibs and a Fedora. I rode this engine during lunch almost everyday. It was retired in and replaced by a, FM trainmaster.
No I didn't take any pics of the stupid diesel. Edited 2 time s. They wore these and always look like businessmen as they were clean and Mom always starched Dad's Train Hat. He was a engineer for SP and started back in the 40's. One other piece of material he used on all the steam was black and had openings at both ends. He wore these on his arms and I remember Mom washing them and they always had some kind of grime and dirt on them.
If you look closely at a fireman or engineer they always had their arms hanging out the windows especially on SP up the valley or Mojave Desert. Key Brand overalls, also. When I first visited Chicago and rode the "L" trains in , I noticed than many of the motormen wore hickory stripe bib overalls, long after they ceased to be common on main line railroad crewmen.
I never saw my dad in his work attire wearing anything other than his blue bibs and his grey fedora. I wish I knew how he dressed in the '30s when he went to work. And I have no idea how my grandfather dressed when he went to work either. I just wish LEE still made the striped engineer caps. I don't think they make any railroad clothing or caps any more. JDE Edited 1 time s. On the Southern Pacific, I believe that dark blue indigo vs. Veteran Coast Division engineer Neil Vodden kept the tradition alive by always wearing hickory-stripe overalls when running S.
The late Errol Ohman who started as a boilermaker's helper at West Oakland roundhouse, and rose to top senority engineer on the Western Division roster told me that traditionally passenger enginemen asked for double starch in their shirts so they would stay nicely pressed all week. Errols's uncle was a Western Division passenger fireman in the s, so his knowledge went way back into the steam era.
White shirts were not at all uncommon for top-line engineers in the s. Roundhouse workers always wore dark blue overalls.
When I hired out on the Milwaukee at Alberton in there were a number of engineers and some conductors who wore stripped bibs.
