    i wouldnt mind trying the blaklader overalls. currently i only have carhartt duck and denim ones. one of two local blaklader dealers have the overalls but in limited selection of sizes. i might get the helly hanson chelsea overalls . their only $5 more than the pants which are pretty much the same as the x1600’s

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    @bethepro any chance that we will see other gear from Blaklader on the list?

    I will be speaking with them about expanding the list a bit when I see their CEO in Vegas. Another reason for you all to hop on board the WOC train.

    That would be great, but unfortunately my wife would veto a trip to Vegas! Don’t even have to ask to know the answer to that question!

    Well then don’t invite her.

    I wore my new pants all day yesterday while cleaning up outside.
    Initially they were quite stiff but as the day went on, they started to break in.
    At the end of the day, I threw them in the wash and was surprised that they were not to be put in the dryer. Had to pull out the wire sweater rack to lay them out on.

    Very pleased with them so far.

    I’d really like a pair of them as well but I would want to try them on for fit first. Those chest pockets and slots really appeal to ke and having them held up with the straps are a good thing too.

    Went to Atlas tools today and saw the display of Blaklader pants, I gotta say the 1600’s look sweet in real life!

    Couldn’t get them exchanged??

    I love my Blakladers. I do find they fit me for size like any other pant/jean though.

    Mine are now a part of my regular rotation. Not totally in love with them, but depending on my tasks for the day, I wear them. The knee pads are the clincher for me.

    @r-ice
    ,
    bring them with you as Blacklader will be at WOC.
    I have been wearing mine while working in the garage lately and really like them. Lots of room to move around in and the knee pads are a great bonus.

    I just got a new button put on a pair of 1900’s that have been collecting dust. it will be nice to get a third pair back into the rotation.

    Hey @kswiss,
    Did you have Blacklader fix them for you or did you take them to a alteration shop?

    Just took them to a local shop. I don’t know why I waited so long it only cost me $3 to get a new button put on. Blaklader did send me a brand new pair though and I got to keep the broken pair.

    Now that is great customer service, a spare pair for free.. $3 can’t be beat, will the repair take a beating?

    Well I guess only time will tell. If the button breaks again I’ll figure out a better solution. I’ll get some pics of the repair in a bit here.

    I would uave thought it would have cost more.

    Bsically, you paid $3 for a new pair in a sense. Sweet deal and ultimately good CS from Blaklader despite the initial response from them taking a while IIRC.

    Here are some pics, you can see where they put the new button on. Also included a comparison pic of the two same pairs.

    Hmmm. They probably should have also done something to fill in or keep the old buton tear hole from itself migrating in size by solidifying that area. The material pull over time with the other one so close is apt to loosen the fabric weave over time. Doesn’t that make sense?

    It does make sense I haven’t worn the new pair yet, I’ll probably get the other part reinforced this weekend. The guy who fixed it said that he is not used to working with such heavy material.
