I have been wearing the B73 double front logger dungeree for 15 years for work and away from work. I work for the union and have asked others about their satisfaction and they have noticed also that quality is going down hill. I am 6'11" and a large stature man and I have ordered the same size pants for a long time. Recently I have noticed that the pants have started to rip easily along the leg seam and in the crotch. Now when I go to order these pants they are no longer in stock? I have grown very dissatisfied with the quality and craftmenship. Wheres the loyalty to long standing customers?
I have been a long time Carhartt wearer. I am hard on my clothes and this used to be the only brand to stand up to the abuse. In the past two years, 8 of the 10 pairs of the double knee dungarees have ripped. These are 6 to 8 inch rips in the butt or front of the pant; not at a seam, or pocket or stitching. Rips are right in the middle of the fabric. Three of the rips occurred after only 2 months of wear. I am highly disappointed and will no longer be purchasing from Carhartt. A co-worker has had the same issue with his past 3 pair of Carhartt.
It's not like me to write a review, especially a negative one, but in this case.... These have been the only jeans I have ever worn for work and a lot casually as well. The last few pairs I have had are not as durable as they used to be, they have torn out in the crotch area( and not on the seems) and the sizing is kinda all over the place. I don't know if they changed the quality of denim they use or what, but I have been very disappointed in the quality lately.
ive been in the electrical trade for 13 years. from near the start i wore the carhartt logger pants exclusively. about 4 years ago i noticed a change in the pants. you could feel it when you picked them up. ever since then this product has been pure garbage. i have ripped a pair of pants the very first time i wore them on 2 occassions. im lucky if i get 3 uses out of them before they rip somewhere. lately they rip at the seam where they sew the front to the rear portion. the pocket corners give out due to the low quality of the material. i cant even explain how horrible these jeans are. the fit great, look great and are totally useful to what i use them for. unfortunately the durablity is terrible at best. these used to be priced well and for the durability of the product it was an excellent purchase. ive since started buying the competitors product. for the money carhartt is asking these would be about the last pants i would purchase. i would not recommend them to anyone and until carhartt gets back to quality materials that made these pants the best in the market for years i will not buy another pair.
My husband has worn these jeans for the past 13 years, but we have noticed the last 6 pair bought in the last 2 1/2 years have had issues with the belt loops ripping. Other than that we are very satisfied with the overall wear of the jeans.
My husband works hard in the trades and goes through clothes like they're paper towels. We came across Carhartt's double-front logger dungaree jeans (Style #B07) with suspender buttons and they were AMAZING!! They held up for 3 solid years before ANY signs of wear began to appear. It was in their fourth year that they began to tear. We were so happy with the quality of these jeans! HOWEVER, we ordered these particular jeans (Style # B73) without suspender buttons because the website was out of the previous style in my husband's size. We put our own suspender buttons on the 3 pair of jeans we ordered. NOW, 6-8 months after ordering these jeans (Style #B73), ALL 3 PAIR OF THESE JEANS ARE TEARING AT THE POCKETS!!! We are very disappointed with the quality of these jeans, especially when compared to the quality of our previous purchases with Carhartt. We have always highly recommended Carhartt to all our friends, especially those who work hard like my husband because their clothes endure and still look good. We are very disappointed that these jeans (Style #B73) did not stand the test and I hope Carhartt can earn our trust again. Thank you!
I am a Carhartt believer, most of what I wear is Carhartt except for underwear and socks. I have worn these B-73 jeans for years. I am on my 6-7 pair currently. My early pairs were durable and the quality was next to none. I am tough on clothes and I finally found a pair of jeans that could keep up with what I put them through. Until my last two pairs that I have gotten in the last 4 months one of which was the beginning of December 2015. These two pairs are already starting to fall apart. Ripping at the rivets and the pockets. It seems like the material is weaker and is not holding up like the pairs I have had for years that are still doing fine. What changed? For years I have recommended Carhartt products but I feel that I must cross these jeans off the recommended list and find something different.
I have been a Carhartt customer since the 90's. I've owned and wore out countless coveralls, coats, sweatshirts, and jeans. Lately, it seems, the jeans do not last at all. My style of choice, the B73 DST logger style jeans, simply do not hold up like they used to. Never mind the inconsistency in the product i.e. disproportional legs and leg openings. I would feel free to show your once great company how many Carhartt products I have purchased to emphasize my until now devotion to your company. As of now I would like some answers to why after over 30 pairs of jeans, I cant get them to last anymore. Forget the fact that no two pairs are the same.
My husband loves the fit of these jeans,. He started wearing the single front style until they started ripping out. He switched to the double front style B73 . The double front stands up to hard work. But, the crotch rips out along the seams within several months of purchase. Not sure why they can't reinforce the crotch or make it thicker. Wish the crotch would last longer.
I have been buying Carhartt for Forty-four years. Been in the Construction Field that long. have been in lots of towns and countrys and have been able to buy these pants every time. Have had to thank the lord and carhartt for the tough front panel of the pants for enduring the wear and tear that they have had to hold -up too. The extra pockets in the pants and shrits have been a life saver. The fact that you do not have to worry about the pants tearing out is Fantastic .
When I bought these jeans almost a year and a half ago, I was shocked by how well they fit in areas where most jeans just don't make the cut. I've been very impressed with carhartt in the past, so I felt comfortable paying the price for them. They're heavy jeans, so they keep me warm on cold days when I'm out skidding logs or driving wagons with draft horses. However, I have to complain about the ability of these jeans to last. After about 7-8 months, the denim started to tear just above the "chaps" from my keys rubbing against that area and regular wear. That's my only complaint, and I still recommend that anyone who does tough work outdoors get at least one pair, as they've lasted much longer than other jeans under the same conditions.
I bought my first 3 pair of b73's in 2014 and was quite happy with them . Then I was at work and put my left hand in my left pocket for something and the corner of the pocket ripped away from the pants. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed. I thought maybe it was just a bad pair of pants and blew it off. Then I bought another 3 pair in 2015 and just a couple of months of having them the same thing happened to them. I thought ok this isn't normal, just a little stress on the pocket makes it tear... umm.. I like the pants and the fact that they are made in the USA but I am thinking now about shopping for another brand. it seems to be a very weak point right where the rivot on the pocket and the pants meet. Just my opinion... Also I own the bibs and jackets which are great...
I bought two pairs of these a few years ago and had common problems that people in the trades have material wearing through at the top of the back pockets no biggie eventually they were thrashed by my own stupidity but I recently bought more in june of this year well I was working 10 hour days keeping 2 pairs of slip joint pliers aka channel locks in left leg pocket and 9 in linemen in my right leg pocket. Fast forward 3.5 months to October and being at work one day my tools litteraly slipped through the pocket I looked in the pocket to see whats going on and sure enough I wore holes in these two pockets where the tools rest, on top of that I chewed up the rt front pocket rim from my tape measure being hooked there. The first question that ran though my mind having these problems is why aren't these pockets and for that matter the rims of the pockets reinforced to hold up. Do they not expect people in the trades to use these pockets, its not like we wear them as a fashion statement we wear them for function and easy access to tools.
I have bought my boyfriend 2 pairs of B73 (D8T 36X32) Original Dungaree Fit in the last 2 months. Each one split after the second wear, and I took one pair back and exchanged it for the second pair. That pair also ripped out down the front of the thigh (doing landscaping). The last pair we bought was 6 years ago, and needed to replace that pair. I used to think these jeans were of high quality for the price I paid, and was a great brand for outside work wear. The jeans are now made in Mexico. The last pair we bought 6 years ago was made in the USA. Is this the reason for poor quality now? I'm disappointed how the quality has gone down hill. I used to sew professionally for a living, and where these are ripping is down the double seam, and in the middle of the thigh. The way the material is made seems to not be as durable as they once were.
Was ready to by my next set of 5 B73 to replace my old ones that 4 in the past 2 weeks all split in the crotch. But after reading the reviews everyone is complain of the same problem, crotch blow out. Been buying car Harry for 15 years and never an issue until this last set. Not worth the money anymore.
My son only wants these jeans for work and normally last at least a year but I recently ordered him 3 pairs and two of the 3 have ripped on inside of leg near crotch. Huge tears in fabric that are unable to be repaired. The rest of Jean looks like brand new. Very disappointed.
I have two pair of the B73's that tore at the rivets and pockets in a short period of time. Seems like the base denim is of lighter grade than that of the double front panels and pockets causing failure in the areas mentioned.
For some reason my last review was rejected so I am re-posting.
I have worn Carhartt jeans for the last 20+ years and it seems that the quality of the denim has declined significantly lately. I bought 2 pairs of the pre washed double front logger dungaree in November 2015, with in three months (February 2016) both pairs have ripped out in the crotch. The pants otherwise are in near new condition. It is truly upsetting because I usually have no problem spending the extra money on a quality product, but in this case I feel I payed an exuberant amount of money for an inferior product. I do work construction and my pants do receive some use and abuse at times, but if all that I do is kneel on one knee and the crotch rips in the same spot in the same manner I am lead to believe it is a quality issue not a normal ware and tear issue.
My husband has been a Carhartt fan forever. 6 years ago, he started wearing the B73s as his only work pants. They are his favorite. As a contractor, he uses every pocket. They used to be made very well. However, the last 12 we've purchased only make it about a handful of wears before the crotch area rips or the back pocket tears or a hole suddenly appears at the back pockets while the rest of the pants still look new. I wish I knew how to patch jeans (I have to pay to have them fixed)! & more importantly, I wish Carhartt would go back to making quality work pants.
I have worn double-front loggers for years and they are the best all around pants I have ever worn ! I have used them for evrything from Logging to Farming to Mechanicing to Hunting to Construction and Fishing.
These pants have a great look to them and are extremely comfortable and very durable. I buy this pair every chance I get because I am so happy with the quality of them. I work in construction and need something that will last and that is comfortable. This pair has been exactly what I have needed.
Well let me tell you! Their styling is awesome. A lot of the logger-style jeans are bulky looking, and can at times make it like you are wearing two pairs of jeans. Not so here!
These jeans are tough. Whether I am fourwheeling through the back forty, driving cattle, clearing one of the trails on the farm, welding, grinding, carpentry or trying to dig one of the dogs out from the briar patch (again!) these jeans have seen me through it. I also love the fact that unlike most "work" jeans, these stop thistles and thorns dead in their tracks.
All in all, I love the fact that these jeans are extremely functional and darn good lookin' to boot.
These pants are a bit heavy for summer but perfect for winter. You will never wear the knee out of these. They fit well & have deep pockets. The only complaint i have about them is that they always wear holes right around the top of the rear pockets, as do most jeans.
I bought a pair of these this winter and have loved wearing them...very handy pockets and quite sturdy. I have bought hundreds of dollars of Carhartt and have been satisfied, but after about the fourth wash one of the rivets pulled through the denim leg leaving a hole. This is the first issue with a Carhartt rivet on any of my clothes ever. Don't know if that is normal or a defect.
I where these pants everyday while building elevators, they are extremely comfortable and fit very well. They are great for warm and really good in the cold, also my favorite to where for fishing. Great product
i have owned 2 pairs of these pants and they are THE BEST.they have outlasted 4 pairs of levis.and i paid the same amount for the levis.they dont come close.and i love the double knee when welding and when im down in rock changing tires.i would double recommend these for anyone who is looking at them.just ignore the price.
I've switched to wearing Carhartt products about ten years ago now. The pants wear always durable and took all that abuse that came with the work I do and even everyday life. I would gladly recommend these pants to anyone though my only complaint is that recently I've been looking to buy some new pairs and it turns out that the size that I used to buy is no longer available. I'm a big guy and it can be very hard to shop for pants that fit and that are comfortable.
I have found that over the life of the pants they will shrink some but not to the point of being to tight or short. My new pants tend to be slightly baggy and loose when they are new and with in a couple of months they fit just right. Wash temperature I suspect plays a big role in the amount of shrinkage.
im 6'7" 260lbs, a pretty fit person, it's been tough finding pants for work that move with me. I love these pants! I have 12 pair, for work and play. They may tighten up a tiny bit in the crotch coming out of the dryer, but fall right back to perfect fit soon after putting them on. Hope this helps
I am not aware of them being pre-shrunk as everything shrinks a little depending on how the item is washed and dried. I have not had issues with the logger or any other jeans shrinking as long as I follow the manufacturers garment handling instructions.
My husband uses these pants for work and has never had an issue with them shrinking. He says they have never shrank to the point of not wearing them. He loves these and would choose them over many work pants he's had in the past.
