So great, my husband swiped the first pair that I ordered!
on February 6, 2013
These are GREAT, I mean really GREAT overalls! I mistakenly ordered a too-large set to start with- I took the advice of (apparently male) other reviewers, and ordered larger than my waist and inseam measurements. They didn't fit. I swam about in them for a minute or two, but was immediately impressed with the quality of the fabric, stitching, and overall (pardon the pun) design. I'm usually a 32-34/34 in jeans, but in these, a 36/34 was waaaay too large. On a whim, my husband asked to try them on, and they were long, even on him- and he's 6'1 / 210 lbs.- but he immediately fell in love with them. (And they actually look pretty hot on him- can't say that about most overalls on most men.) This was actually fortunate, as it gave me a better idea of what size to order for myself (and saved me from the Valentine's Day conundrum, LOL!) So now I have my own pair as well, and I gotta say, they're just wonderful- the color is darker than pictured, but I like that. The details are nicely done, the pockets are a delight (and I keep finding MORE of 'em all the time), they're well-put-together, comfortable, and well....they're just GREAT. The legs are a little long, but I don't care- better too long than too short. I wound up getting a pair in 34/32, and that's working out nicely for me- room enough to layer shirts if needs be, but definitely cute with a smaller, non-bulky top.
A special note to other female buyers: the other terrific thing about these is that the bib is wide enough to accomodate a woman's chest, without that weird, uh, centering/not centering thing that happens with overalls that AREN'T wide enough up top- no "peek-a-boob" effect, which is my major gripe with the makers of many "ladies'" overalls. (I mean, why on earth would you skimp on the bib fabric, for a clientele with breasts? I mean, REALLY?!) And if your fella has the classic suit-wearing physique, broad-shouldered and narrow-hipped, he will look GREAT in a set of these, no joke! (Got a "Jethro" fantasy, ala Beverly Hillbillies? I didn't, either. Until I got my husband a pair of these. *Giggle*)
These are comfortable, well-made, high-quality overalls, and the price is right- much nicer than other brands that I could mention, and have wasted money on in the past. If you're going to drop some cash for a good pair of overalls, these would be your best bet. You will not be disappointed!
