I have a friend willing to bring back some US made bibs for me. Which brands are US made, other than
Roundhouse, Pointer and Big Smith. I have some Mexican made Dickies. Carrhart are listed as imported. What others are there?

Have KEY, that I like, Don't know where they're made though.

Thanks Bob, the websites too suggest a size bigger. My Dickies are 40" waist, 30" inleg. I am a 38", trying to get down to 36 after Christmas.

Mike, I would like to buy American if I can. Not much point in wearing imitations. I had a real problem buying an American made leather belt when visiting the stockyards complex in Fort Worth. Thousands of nice belts, a couple of hundred US made. That was in 2010. It will no doubt be harder now. Again, not much value in buying a foreign made souvenir of a wonderful trip to the USA.

Steve Jelf will be chiming in here shortly I'm sure. He gets his from down in Okie country and USA made. Hopefully he'll share a link.

Thanks, Steve. I think I'm gonna try those. I have a really old pair of Liberty, that MAY have been made in the US, but they are getting in bad shape and they also have seemed to shrink a lot in the last few years. My other pair is KEY. I like they way they are made and how they fit, but while I haven't looked, I seriously doubt they are made in the US. The prices on the web site you posted are certainly reasonable and I like to buy American when I can.

Rural King has the best price, $19 from IL. Do not know where they are actually made.

Steve, I found the Roundhouse website, went through the motions of ordering some on line, only to find they will not ship to Australia. {like some forum classified vendors} Go figure! They do sell into Europe though, and I can get them from there, at greatly increased cost.

Perhaps they will ship to my friend's motel in Ca. I am waiting for a response from the motel before I place an order.

You may be interested in shipping costs, from $19.50 to $53, depending on the shipper. Hence the attempt to have them brought home in my mate's luggage.

If you carry a watch the Round House have a side pocket in the bib so your chain is not piled up on your watch! Bud.

I suspect they would ship to a motel. If not, perhaps there is a forum member living close to the motel? If so, a back up plan might be to have them shipped to the member, and the member get them to your friend? Let the forum know where the motel is located, if you wish to pursue further.

Hal,

Liberty are nice, and I can remark especially nice for a guy with a pot belly bigger than his butt...they hold up well, haven't shrunk, tougher than nails, slow to fade to the stone-wash look...however...the tag on the last batch I bought does say 'Fabrique en Vietnam" and for that reason alone I moved my buying over to Roundhouse a year or so ago.

For me, the Roundhouse are a little snug in the waist, (not meant for fat guys??) even moving up a size on my normal pant size, but not snug enough for me to go up an extra extra size.

I wear bibs every day, don't even own a pair of pants. I wear Liberty because of the bib design. There is a button snap pocket I put my wallet in. Behind that a zipper pouch perfect for a phone so you don't lose it or get it banged up. Also anything you don't want to lose you can zip up in there. Last ones I bought were made in Vietnam. I try to get them on eBay, wait and watch and good deals come up. About 6 or 7 years ago I bought 5 pair for $100 with free shipping. Those 5 were made in Russia. I've never bought anything I can remember with a made in Russia tag. I've had Round House, Carharrt, Key, Big Smith etc. but if you bend over stuff can fall out. Only way my stuff spills is if I forget to zip the pouch. Side pockets are deep so if you lay down to get under a car all the stuff doesn't fall out. Don't get the stone washed, they are half worn out when you buy them.

Do they come with a tape measure ?

Thank you Steve, for sharing the http://www.round-house.com/collections/round-house-made-in-usa-bib-overalls web site. I just ordered a pair of Round House Vintage Made in USA Hickory Stripe Bib Overalls are the stylish uptown overall made famous by the American railroad engineer. Form meets function with this eye-catching pattern and its durable Round House American Made construction.

Happy motoring,

Warren

I wear Big Smith and like them a lot. I tried some Round House and Carhartts in the same size but had to return them, too small. The Round House needed to be a size bigger, and the Carhartts at least two sizes. The Big Smith in a size 48 fit my fat belly just fine, and I refuse to go to a 50. :-)

Warren, what house is that? It looks similar to the Mark Twain house in Hartford, CT.

I checked Steve's posted Roundhouse link, and checked on their overall size chart. Dickies, Carhartt, Berne, Big Smith, Key and Liberty are all listed as imports. Looks like it's Round house or Pointer for US made.

What really gets on my goat is the imports are not appreciably cheaper than the locally made product. If that's the case, why go off-shore? Unless there is a gouging profit being made! The local RM Williams brand of outback clothing has gone the same way, to China and Fiji. About the only thing they still make is their excellent boots, but since the company has been purchased by one of the Louis Viton international fashion brand the prices have gone skywards.

Wayne, using the Roundhouse on-line order form I could get through the hoops to have the purchase made. I am waiting to hear from the motel whether they will hold/accept the package for their guest. I am not expecting it to be a problem.

Yoder's in Indiana says that most of their apparel is made in the US.
Here is their web site on bib overalls

Allan, I get my overalls at a Wal-Mart store. Check the Wal-Mart website and see if they sell Roundhouse online, and whether thy will ship down under.

Allan You may want to check with Steve about acquiring a tape measure. A tape measure is required if you wear "BIB'S!

These are not bibs but this is one of the most successful companies in Montana in recent years. They make clothing for working women. EVERY pair is made in the tiny town of White Sulphur Springs, Montana USA. They will ship world wide. Might want to get your sweetie a pair that fits and looks good. I have never heard one complaint about the product, the company or the service.

This is even further off topic but a gorgeous friend of mine - just turned 25 - who sells jewelry during the day, plays country music in a bar band on the weekends and spends nights and weekends welding in her dad's shop on anything you need fixed swears by Red Ants Pants. Boy Howdy, does she look good in them. I won't post a picture but she is 25, 5' 4 and beautiful. At one time they had a picture of her on the Red Ants site, I think.

Note: They also make beautiful old fashioned aprons. Valentines is coming -- as is Mother's Day.
