I have an older pair of Carhartt loose-fit jeans. Those were not quite as nice as the heavyweight Silvertab jeans I used to buy, but they were A LOT cheaper, more durible and almost as comfortable. If it weren't for poorly designed shoes tearing them up, I could probably wear them every day for another 4 years. Overall, a really great deal on great jeans.
I thought I was ordering pretty much the same thing, but with these, they took 5 inches off of the size (circumference) of each thigh. These jeans also have a notably longer inseam than 30" I ordered, but that is at least fixable. If Carhartt hopes to be aimed at hard working physical laborers, then these definitely aren't loose cut. These especially aren't the loose that I've come to expect from Carhartt. Had they been properly labeled as relaxed fit, I would have known to stay away. Now I need to find another jeans company.
Outside of removing 5 inches off the , the quality looks to be fairly good, with some impressive stitching, but sizes jumping around so much is a definite mark of non-quality.
I have been wearing Carhartt jeans for years. Specifically the B167 style loose fit. When they discontinued I was forced to go with the 100066 style which is still a loose fit but does not fit or wear like the B167. Very disappointed they discontinued the B167.
First pair of Carhartt jeans. Opted for 'loose fit'. Much better quality and workmanship compared to other major brands. From the triple stitching on the inside seem, to the extra heavy zipper, to the weight of the material, the difference in quality and workmanship is very noticeable. I would change one thing though ... for 'loose fit' jeans, they could stand to have a little more room in the seat.
I prefer loose fit that sit just below waist...like the 1889 jeans that are discontinued...I have been devoted Carhartt purchaser since leaving the Marine Corps in 1990 and entering civilian workforce as Carpenter/Construction worker. I need durable, comfortable product...cost is not an issue if the product is made in the United States and will last through a real workday...
I use to wear the loose-fit style b167 which are no longer made. i had called the 1 800 number on this web page and asked the nice lady if she could recommend a pair of loose fit style that is as close to the style i once wore. She recommended this style and i am very please that i followed her advice. they fit just like my old style did and that is the best feeling in the world. very very happy.
i love these jeans they are a gerat fit, but the inseam really needs to be shorter then 30 because when your short the jeans just rip on the back and its just a waste. also it looks better on short people if they have a shorter cut. thank you
