HOW TO MEASURE OVERALLS

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR HELP@ TOLL FREE 866-218-0179 PRESS 2 FOR THE ORDER DESK.

Overalls are measured differently by different manufacturers.  This is important to understand so you know what size to order for you in order to get the best fit.  

       

Key and Berne overalls waist size are measured from side to side at the point of the top button on the sides of the overalls extending beyond the button to the outer edges.

                                                                                     

Big Smith and Liberty waist measurement is at just below the top button along the double stitch line just below the top botton where the bib is sewn onto the pants portion of the overalls and measured from one side of the garment to the other. 

Overalls are made to be comfortable and let your body have room to move around without binding.  Depending on your activity and personal preferences the quidelines below will assist you in deciding what size to wear.  If you need any further assistance or have any questions or would like to talk about sizing preferences or challenges in measuring please call our toll free number of 1-866-218-0179 press 2 for the order desk and we will be glad to assist you.

MENS: To measure overalls for Men: the critical measurement is at the waist line and this is measured in this manner.  To make sure you order the correct size to fit you should measure around the widest part of your tummy area and then add a couple of inches to make sure you have enought room to move around comfortably.  With this measurement we can order you the size that fits your needs.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Shrinkage is often less than 3 percent, but sometimes greater in the original denim or firm hand denim overalls and TOLERANCES ARE ALLOWABLES SO THAT THE GARMENT IF NOT MADE EXACTLY PERFECT WILL STILL BE OK.  THIS CAN  BETWEEN 1 INCH SMALL AND AND ONE INCH BIGGER. For clarification, please call our order desk if you need mor information for specific measuring or fit. 

Sometimes it is easier to measure a pair of pants or overall that you know fits you well.  IF you need assistance, please contact us at the order desk and we will help you. 

KEY AND BERNE NORMALLY MEASURE ABOUT 2-3 INCHES OVER THE WAIST SIZE OF THE OVERALL.  SO A 40 WAIST OVERALL WILL MEASURE ABOUT 42 INCHES AT THE WAIST MEASUREMENT GIVE OR TAKE AN INCH (LITERALLYT).

ACCORDING TO DICKIES-WALLS--BIG SMITH AND LIBERTY ARE SUPPOSE TO MEASURE 5 INCHES  OVER THE WAIST SIZE OF THE OVERALL GIVE OR TAKE AN INCH (LITERALLY) SO A 40 WAIST OVERALL WITH DICKIES-WALLS SHOULD MEASURE 44-46 INCHES.  

If you are exceptionally physically fit, you might want to order a size that gives you less than 2 inches for movement.  Commonly 2 inches for physically fit people is sufficient. Keeping this info in mind, if you need any assistance, we are available to help, just give us a call at  866-218-0179 press 2 for the order desk.

Measure your inseam.  Normally it is easier to measure a pair of pants that fits and you feel good in and are the length you like to wear than it is to measure the inside of your leg.   Measure the inseam length from where all of the seams meet in the crotch area of your pants.  You can order  this length or subtract 1 or 2 inches because overalls do not fit as snug as a pair of pants would.  They do have a degree of looseness that offers comfort in between the legs so the customer can often use a shorter length of overall than the pants they normally wear.  Some overalls over time may experience a small degree of shrinkage due to individual methods of washing and drying.

    WOMENS: To measure overalls for women:

    • Measure your natural waist or the widest part of your belly.
    • Measure your inseam.  Normally it is easier to measure a pair of pants that fits and you feel good in and subtract 1 or two inches because overalls do not fit as snug as a pair of pants would in the crotch area.
    • Measure your seat which is 3 to 4 inches from the middle of your crotch seam up and then all the way around your bottom.  This should be the widest part of your hips and bottom.
