Hi Kurt, I think you will find that it is a variation of a well known American underwear called 'combinations' or 'union suit'. A quick google search shows several modern variations including a short leg, sleeveless version very similar to the one Jackie wore in Rumble in the Bronx by Calvin Klein.
