Look like a pro, impress your friends
Aside from the fact that it made my husband look like Bob the Builder, these overalls functioned perfectly! He wore them to paint our two-story living room so that he'd have plenty of pockets to carry tools and such (and thus keep his trips up and down a 20' ladder to a minimum). They fit as expected, never bunched or became uncomfortable, and allowed him to move and contort as needed. Plus, they made him look like he knew what he was doing, which he did, because he's amazing.
Added bonus - overalls prevent plumbers crack.

100% Cotton Goodness
Durable construction and feel. But a word to the wise: order one size larger than your usual size because if you get these anywhere near warm water and a low-heat drying cycle when washing them, they *will shrink*...a LOT. It's almost freakish. Since they're 100% cotton, the label states to wash in cold water but I'm a stickler for cleanliness and hot water is better at loosening any dirt in my experience. I ordered one size up, so when I got them I threw them in the wash with hot water, then a normal heat in the dryer. They fit just fine now.

Dyed beautifully and evenly
Following the guidelines of the reviews, purchased overalls that were shorter than would normally be ordered. With that they fit perfectly. Had we ordered normal sizing it would have been too large. Overalls are 100% cotton, they will shrink in the wash if you use hot/warm water.
Used these overalls for a Halloween costume and dyed them red (used Rit Dye Scarlet Red). Dyed beautifully and evenly, the straps which are not made of cotton did have discoloration and came out pink. Dyed the overalls again and although slightly lighter straps again, they were a little redder.

The fanciest of overalls.
I love these things, nothing looks sexier than a farmer in white overalls.
If you don't wear a shirt underneath the clamps can catch you right on the nipples, so be aware of that.
Otherwise they are great. Wife loves it when i wear them out to fancy places.

I would guess they would be fine for the job intended but I do feel like ...
They do fit a little small (I should've returned them but was in the middle of a move) - after washing & drying I would imagine they'd even get tight (tried them on, put them back in their packaging). Dickies does make decent stuff. I would guess they would be fine for the job intended but I do feel like a total dork in them (this is probably my issue, not Dickies).

Love these but.....
My husband loves these. The only problem we have is there was a loop put on the right back pocket to the left & it makes my husband look like he has a tail. Also a little uncomfortable to sit on. We will probably cut it off if possible. That loop could be in a better place. Otherwise love them!!

These run large and the in-seam is longer than indicated
Feel strong and durable but the in seams are too long. I have to either have them taken in or put pins in the leg to safely use. It would be ideal to take them out of the package and get to work painting, but because they are long, they are sitting in my closet. Now my other clothes are getting pain on them:(. So not completely happy about the inaccurate inseam measurement.

Good fit for wheelchair user!
I dyed the legs, bottom to top of the pockets, black to grey, since I sit in a wheelchair and sometimes get out on the ground, Keeps my pants from falling off and I don't have to wear a shirt in the summer! Also great for crawling up and riding the 4 wheeler. I do like the adjustable straps quality! I know I look like a crazy crippled hick but the bibs fit good and work for me! (the dye job is for keeping the dirt off the front thigh area as well, from dirty hands)

for men only - not suitable for women
I know these are men's bibs, but finding women's painters bibs is a challenge, so I thought I'd give these a shot anyway. They fit about as I'd expected, size-wise, but the fly made a very unattractive pooch. For guys, maybe this isn't an issue, but for me, it didn't work.

Don't forget that these shrink!
I intentionally ordered the largest size available because I needed oversized overalls for a costume. When I originally received them, they were massive. I was basically swimming in them. By the time I was finished dyeing them purple and washing them a few times, they had shrunk so much that you would think I'd only ordered four sizes up rather than ten. If you don't want that much shrinkage, avoid washing them in hot water.
They're super solid though, and I love them. Thanks a bunch!
