How do you wash the stiff jeans to soften them up?
First do not put more than three pair in the machine at a time.
This allows more movement of the jeans through the washing.
Turn the jeans inside out.
This allows the color to wash back into the jean.
Add a cup to a cup of white distilled vinegar with your regular detergent (liquid is better to use)
The vinegar helps take out the starch they used to make them stiff.

How Orders are Processed and How long it will take to receive your order.

Most all of our products are stocked in house. However, we to, like many others sell out sometimes before the fill in order arrives. Due to this orders could take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to fill depending on the item ordered. We also have some items that we do not keep in house and have to order. Any of those that take more than 4 weeks are marked in the Detailed Description of the item.

When your order is ready you will be notified in one of the following ways:

Pick Up From a Store Orders - An associate at the Store you are picking up from will phone you to let you know your order is ready at your convenience to pick up. If we cannot reach you via the phone an email will be sent.

Orders to be Shipped - A tracking number email will be sent with information to track your package.

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.

We appreciate our 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.

General Guide to Overall Fitting.

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.

A kids sizing chart for Liberty Overalls. The Lakin & McKey are a little wider in the waist. The Liberty are a little longer in length. This is again 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 need.

Are buckles sterling silver?  No.  Usually 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. 

Do 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.

Explain the difference between Junior, Misses, and Plus jeans.

Junior jeans are numbered with odd numbers 0, 1, 3, etc. They have a shorter strad and are cut more straight in the hips.
Misses jeans are numbered with even numbers 2, 4, 6, etc. They have a little longer strad and are usually cut more fuller in the hips.
Plus jeans are numbered with even numbers usually starting with 14W and have a W at the end of the number. They are cut full throughout for the fuller figure.

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 material "stacks" at the bottom over the boot.
