Southern Staple: Carhartt Bib Overalls

Made from durable 100% cotton duck, Carhartt's Bib Overalls are the perfect choice if you're going to be out in a field. Whether you're actually doing work, shooting dove, or just standing around a fire drinking beer and bourbon, it's hard to think of a better alternative. While the workwear thing may be popular with hipsters right now, hard-working people have been wearing these for decades and fortunately, they will most likely never be sold in a boutique store in New York City. Find them at your local hardware store, or other place where manly things are sold. If you're south of the Mason-Dixon line, you'll want to get the unlined version, but I don't have to tell you that.

Oh, and while you're at it, pick up a pair for your girlfriend; you won't be sorry.

OK a couple of things.
1 - Forgot how much I love that commercial.
2 - I can vouch that so far the hipsters & the hipster shops in NYC (surprisingly) have not jumped on Carhartt. Though, it's probably because the pants are cut too generously for them. You can still get Carhartt in NYC at places like Dave's on Sixth Avenue.
3. I was just thinking about the Carhartt union suit, for whatever reason this morning. Weird.
