My first wish for buying these overalls was comfort. I am 5'6" and 140 pounds, a very average size, but I have a LOT of trouble finding pants. These overalls fulfill my every wish for bending, stretching, and crouching in comfort and it is a great relief to have no waistband pinching me or slipping down. I got the Medium short, which is a good size for me even though I'm average height. I got the black, though, and they are not a standard denim fabric. The black fabric attracts lint like a magnet, and I am covered in lint fibers and pet hair almost as soon as I put them on. That does not happen with standard denim. I am looking forward to getting a blue pair when my size is in stock, because the comfort is wonderful.
