Welcome to The Overall Company, a place where we celebrate Southern culture at its roots: family, food, and music. These are things we have come to celebrate in our community, a community so rich in history that we as citizens couldn’t stand the thought of losing it! The Overall Company, in its beginnings, started right here in Opelika in the mid-1800s during the manufacturing boom. They manufactured Eagle Brand Overalls up until the Civil War when they began production on the uniforms for the Southern military. Repurposing the name is our way of bringing a little bit of our history back to our future, showcasing just how much we Southern folk love a good story about our roots.
