Most Boots take 1 to 2 weeks unless it is a handmade boot
such as our Lucchese or Resistol Ranch lines these boots are made with
meticulous care and could take a bit longer to receive after ordering. (Your
feet will thank you for the wait.) Our Jeans take roughly 2 to 4 weeks. ALL of
this depends on the availability at the manufacturer level. They tend to keep a
large selection and range of sizes but they too sometimes run low due to
conditions beyond their control.
Now if your item ordered is in stock. Your order should fill
and ship within a week. We do have backup staff in case someone is out sick or
has an emergency but it may take an extra day or too outside of that week if
someone was to experience a sickness or an emergency and have to be out of
work. Since the backup people do not perform these duties on a regular basis it
may take them a little more time to complete the tasks of pulling and shipping
the orders. So please bear with us.

customers and strive to provide the best customer service possible. We all
order online too and understand that anticipation of receiving that one thing
you have been looking for all over at the best price possible and then you have
to wait for it to ship. This is why we try to keep as much as possible in stock
so it can ship out as quickly as humanly possible.
Please keep in mind that this is only a suggestion in
determining your bib overall size. Everybody is different and likes the fit of
bib overalls in many different ways. We cannot guarantee that the size you
choose will be the size you need. When I
fit Overalls on anyone a good rule of thumb I use for a good fit is once you
have the overalls on and buttoned take your pointer and middle finger together
and if you can slide them between you and the side of the overall where the
buttons are you got a good fit.
In determining how to get your size of bib overall, the
first thing to remember is that you DO NOT get your pant size. Your pant size
is determined by your waist size and bib overalls are determined by your
stomach size. Since everybody's stomach size is different, the best way to get
your correct size is get a measuring tape and measure the fullest part of your
stomach. Once you get your size of your stomach, then go with that size or one
size up, depending on how tight or loose you want your overalls to fit.
To determine the length of the overall, usually you get the
same size as your pant length.

varies person to person and the comfort of the child. The same rule of thumb
with the two fingers between the child and the overall at the buttons can apply
here. Also any time I fit a child remember how they will be in the garment I
always have them sit Indian style on the
floor. If they are comfortable then it is a good fit. We cannot guarantee the
size you choose will be the size you

a buckle needs to be stronger than the pure metal, so they start
with a stronger core base then have layers of silver added to it.
you polish buckles? Usually, no. Most buckles
at The Barn are lacquered so you do not polish them. If you did
you would be taking the lacquer off which means you are taking
the protection off the buckle.

If a customer is buying Wrangler jeans and
they say they want them to "stack", what do they mean? The jean
is purchased longer than normal so when you are sitting on a horse
your jean is still covering your boot. When it is long like this

the bottom over the boot.

Carhartt FR clothing is specially designed for electricians
and workers in the utility, oil, gas and petrochemical fields

flames and help char the fabric. FR fabrics are not flame proof;
however, they are specially treated to be flame-resistant.
