Until now. I've been losing weight very slowly and very steadily over the last couple of years, with the result that I can at last get into these comfortably.
Personally, I think they look kind of nifty.
And even more cool is that when I looked at them up close, I discovered that they're not a pure black, like my black Carhartt's. It turns out that these are actually a pair of Hickory-striped overalls, that the fine folks at Dickies dyed into blackness. You can see the stripes up close, which is really cool:
And I dig the black Dickies brand tag, which is red on every other pair of Dickies that I own (save two, on which the tag is white). These are seriously cool.
