    My wife is an intelligent woman with a PhD and an independent mind who commands my respect in many ways, so why, oh why does she have to p*ss herself laughing every ( yes every) time she sees me in my bib shorts?
    Grow up woman for God's sake:angry::biggrin:

    I don't laugh every time she gets her cellulite out:ohmy::ohmy:

    Bib-shorts are the sexiest article of clothing ever invented - according to a err, recent poll. (ahem)

    I get entirely the opposite reaction from my Mrs when I put on the bibs - she starts purring:biggrin:
     
  4. They pay to see male strippers like the Chippendales strutting around in them and then taking them off...so why do they find us so hysterically funny in them ?

    My wife finds leg warmers hilarious, especially if I put these on before bib shorts.

    Decent pair of wranglers, nice light stretchy material, bicycle clip or tuck into your socks. Won't get arrested if you take a wrong turn into a school playground either

    I'm not sure Chris Barrie did Bib shorts any favours when he appeared in a Red Dwarf episode wearing them.

    Generally unless you're built like an italian greyhound you're going to, well, look a bit of a d!ck in them...



    ...but they are comfy...

    My wife likes my knee-length bib shorts. You've got to have a waist though or they look terrible.

    Not a flattering sight to use suspenders to hold up your pants. Particularly with shorts, I mean would anyone wear suspenders to hold up their underwear?

    The easiest way to take them off is to take your shorts off first but there's not really a way to do that without looking ridiculous.

    Because even the most desirable of men looks like a reject from a Mr. Muscle advert when wearing b*bs... They are not the most attractive of attire.

  15. lol, I look great in my bib shorts. Only this morning I looked in the mirror, and along with my nike sleevless base layer, I had to congratulate myself on how athletic I looked, could have been up for a 100 metre sprint. Sounds like there's a few salad dodgers on here!!
