Carhartt bibs are the industry leader and many manufacturers have tried to match or beat their quality.

Bib overalls design dates back to the 19th century and the basic design has remained unchanged. At one point they were called “slops” and were worn by only the very poor. The fit was very loose and sloppy as to fit a variety of sizes of  people.  Nowadays the fit is custom. In two inch increments you can choose your pair, the color and wash of the fabric has options also, and finally you have a variety of choices for lined bibs as well… For something to have such a history ..it must be worth trying.
