The elegant Parisian garbage collectors

The Parisians are well known for their elegance, even the garbage collectors (éboueurs) are elegant, I wonder who designed their green and yellow  uniforms….

When I lived in Paris, I was fascinated by the uniform of the garbage collectors, they wore French blue overalls with a matching jacket, I could not resist I bought one outfit for my husband so he could wear it on his movie set. He was not as enthralled as I was, and I ended up wearing the uniform myself to do some furniture painting…Anyhow, I see that the Parisian garbage collectors are still as elegant as ever, don’t you think so….
