Once you've wore these bibs, you'll never go back to the conventional jeans/belt set up. "Man they are comfortable", and I wear them (7) days a week with a tie on Sunday morning !!! Must own a piece of the rock at Carhardt by now, started at around age 38-40, best wearing brand on the market !!!

I think I might have worn a bib when I was very young. I know that my grandpa wore one at work. I see two dogs in that picture. What is that thing over the top of the car which looks like a sail?

Here is the picture of me in Bib overalls.

Norm,

I think it is a stake bed truck look at the left side it looks like high side slats. I think the canvas is covering the truck bed.

I can't imagine ever wearing a pair of pants again. Bibs are comfortable and like wearing a tool box. I've got on me at all times a pen, soapstone, small crescent, vice grips, flathead screwdriver, leatherman tool with needle nose pliers etc, lighter, 6 ft tape and sometimes more. I wear Liberty so I zip my phone up in the bib and button my wallet up in the bib. I've watched people get married in them and I've carried caskets out wearing them. I got married in them twice, but I ain't doing that again. Plus you are period correct.

I love bibs too. The ones with zippered pockets are hard to find. Who makes them and where do you find them?

Me in my bibs fixing a broken axle shaft in Gothenberg, Ne. on our Yellow Stone trip. I grew up on a farm and learned to like bibs then. I wear them when ever I work.

Like Bud's, mine are imported from Okieland. I used to buy Oshkosh before they went yuppie and quit making adult sizes. The only time I wear pants is for weddings and funerals.

Most country boys wore them. Boys at Oak Grove, 1921-22 school year.

Nobody said anything about all those hats, I can still hear my Dad saying as I walked out the door"where's your cap". Anyway sounds like great advice from all the guys on the forum that wear them. now that it's getting a little cooler I think it's time I started wearing mine.

Happy motoring,

Warren

The last time I wore bibs at work was back in the early (very early) sixties, when I was running a milk route in Groton, Mass.. I would only needed half of this bib as I had a waist measuring 28".

Happy motoring,

Warren
