Many people mistakenly view the “bib” on a pair of Key Imperial Bib Overalls as simply a way to protect the shirt from dirt and wear & tear. Although the bib does provide this protection, it offers the wearer much more!
If one takes a good look at the bib itself, you will see a variety of features that add great utility to the garment and are appreciated by the wearer:
The “Watch” Fob
If you carry a pocket watch and have a safety strap or chain attached to the watch — this is where you would attach the chain to the bib. Other items with a strap, chain or secure clip may be attached here.
Just below the snap on one of the bib pockets is a vertical opening into a pocket. This is the pocket where you would store your watch or other item.

- Simply hook the Wire Loop onto the Button on the bib top as you do when you wear your Key bib Overalls. This does keep the Wire Loops in place, but does not protect them from striking the metal portions of the washer or dryer. If the hardware comes apart in the washer, re-secure before placing in the dryer. Continue reading
