Well, the bib people have spoken, and even though it's in the 90's here in Annapolis, I think I'll stick with them and accept that not every pair of pants needs to barely fit over the shaft of my engineer boots  :D

@henry_david a member of the Brotherhood does not concern him or herself with appearances and just enjoys being swaddled in supple 21oz IH denim 😆

Amateur hour on my end, shoulda remembered these wise words from @henry_david

I'm at a crossroads, gentlemen.  Am I too short/small to rock these things?  I guess the leg opening is crazier than I typically where (they are bibs, I get that) but I'm also getting some gaping at the bib in front that leads me to believe I'm not broad shouldered enough.  Should I stop being a coward, throw these things in a super hot soak, and rock it?  I'm sure I could fiddle with the straps a tick more.  I don't think there's any issue with the waist, it's comfortable and spacious (ended up going with a 34 (actual 39.5), my size in XHS also being 34).  There are still 32's available, which would mean getting to lose about .5" through nearly every dimension.  I think breaking in a pair of 777's recently has warped my processing haha.

@LewisStonehouse I'm pretty pumped, will give me something ridiculous to alternate with my XHSib.

Lookin' great @emceeQ, digging the cuffs, I'm getting pumped to get mine!  All these photos of rad Bibs were giving me FOMO

Uncomfortable is better at first than my fades shifted later on down the line.
This is what I was afraid of, that and I wanted to know right off the bat how my jeans would feel at their most shrunk

I hot soaked my XHSib 777 before I wore them the first time (tried them on, new they would stretch to be comfortable, straight into a tub of the hottest water my sad apartment can muster).  The first day was uncomfortable, but I'd say end of day one I wasn't noticing it as much.  I'm a designer in a woodshop and find myself up and down at my desk and the stairs to the shop alot during the day, moving around for sure helped

@LewisStonehouse @Filthy @sabergirl I appreciate all the input, now I've just gotta commit!  It was just my birthday on the 3rd, who's to say I shouldn't belatedly treat myself ?? I expect I'd get no judgement here 🤣

Looks great, I love the sashiko-style mending.  I'm glad I have the hem cutoffs from my xhs so I can use that for mending down the road

 Ha, by no means a muscly athletic type, but for sure on the shorter side.  5'6" if it matters

36? That would be a 41 waist in these, are.they intended to fit that relaxed?  I understand the sizing doesn't take into account the thickness of the fabric, so the 39 waist of the 34 on paper already seems pretty large.
