Vetter Old School leather bibs size 36 Men's - uncut legs, so they are about 38" or so long. I am kidding myself if I think I can wear these any more (for many, many years now). No tears, zippers all work as new, no excuses whatsoever.

These were fairly expensive in the old days, but that doesn't mean squat now....Someone want these for $50 and pay postage, shoot me a PM - thanks, Matt

Ya learn something new every day. I worked for Vetter back in the 80s, and I don't recall those. At. All.

Lew,
I was wondering if you knew about their leather line....I've had those for years - were some of the best leathers I ever owned.

Craig's brother, Bruce, used to make all of our 'soft goods'; Hippo Hands, side pocket tonneau covers, but I don't think he ever delved into 'clothing'. When Craig sold the company in '81 the new owner started working with Bell Helmets, they may have manufactured for Vetter (guessing).

If you g**gle "vetter leathers" a lot pops up.

Lew, the relationship with Bell is how I was introduced to Vetter originally in 1989 - worked with them on their helmet projects for a while attempting to assist in formulating urethane paint strippers that wouldn't soften the helmet shells (for factory paint blems/seconds) so they could re-work them in house and market them.
