My husband has worn these jeans for a couple years and really liked them. Recently he had two pairs tear at the right rear pocket, such as others have commented. Would be interested in seeing the results from your quality control dept.
I am a commercial electrician and bought two pairs of these jeans. One pair ripped on my back right pocket after wearing them twice and the other ripped at the same spot after wearing them three times. I also purchased some carhartt khaki work pants and while they have lasted longer they are beginning to rip in a couple of different spots. I will never buy carhartt work pants or jeans again
I have been buying these Carhartts for quite awhile, and have from the beginning been quite happy with them. That slowly started to change a year or so ago, when the newer jeans I bought started developing holes in them. At the corners on the top of my rear pockets, in the front inseam area, etc. Random places that there should not be holes. It has gotten to the point that some of my most recent pairs, about three months old, already have holes in them where some of the jeans I bought two or three years ago are still fine. Very disappointed, and I'm done buying these.
Husband has wore these jeans for many years and they have always been great! In the last year they aren't holding up at all. We have had two pair split out on the back at the pockets and last week we had a pair that has only been wore twice loose the button because the material gave out.
These have always been great jeans. What happened?
I just received two new pair of B17 DST jeans. I have been wearing this model for over a decade now. I had not purchased any for a couple of years and was wondering if they had changed. I am very happy to report they have not changed and are as they always have been comfortable, the same material, construction and quality I have always expected from Carhartt .
Easily some of the most comfortable jeans I've owned in a very long time. I've only had them for a year but as of yet there is no real wear and tear. It's unfortunate they don't come in any other colours (black maybe?) because I would certainly by a second or third pair.
5 stars all across. Bought these at the same time I purchased a couple pairs of Levi's. The Levi's are now shorts and Carhartts are still going strong. I work in a lumber and building materials department at a big box store and these jeans have stood up to some serious punishment. Handle hazardous wastes at my other job and again, they hold up to whatever punishment I dish out. Another plus is that I can get them with a 28 inch inseam.
Jeans are perfect, fit great I can only give them a five star rating across the board. I bought two similar pairs two years ago and they are still holding up like the day i bought them I feel these are going to be just the same or even better.
I purchased a pair of B17 Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans at a yard sale a while back and was so pleased with the comfort and fit that I recently purchased 2 pair of 35/32 B17 Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans and now am doubly happy with the Quality of the fit and comfort. Will look into the Carhartt work shirts for everyday wear. Thanks Carhartt for holding up the Quality.
I have been buying Carhartt B17 relaxed fit jeans for two to three years, and really like the fit. They wear like iron compared to other name brand jeans I have purchased in the past. When the knees start to wear out, I use iron on jean patches on the inside before holes develop, and continue to keep wearing them.
I switched from the competitors jeans to Carhartt Jeans about 4 years ago. My jeans used to last 6 to 8 months max. before needing new ones. Now I wear Carhartts B17DST. They are comfortable and last me 1.5 to 2 years at a time. I currently have 3pr for work and 3pr for every day wear. I am also trying out the B13's currently. Ya get what you pay for and then some when you buy Carhartt. Sincerely Shrek Now they just need to get on the band wagon and make underwear.

After 10 years of buying these jeans, I have yet to find anything to complain about. They are extremely durable and comfortable. They are also the only jean I can find that has the 15 1/2" leg opening that I prefer.
great product .. just be careful when ordering siz
I love the fit, feel, and look. my favorite jeans. just be careful when ordering .. I am so used to seeing jean size as "waist x inseam" that I clicked on the wrong sizes when ordering ... the web site should not show inseam first and then waist second - it is confusing ... then I had to go through the "returns' hassle
I have worked in the construction field for 40 years and have worn Carhartt almost exclusively for that time. These jeans stand up to the demanding work environments they are subjected to and wear extermely well. The comfort level is superb and the longevity of the garment is excellent. I have been a Carhartt customer long before they became a fashion statement and will continue to be in my retirement which has commenced. I rate these jeans as outstanding and would recommend them without any hesitancy whether they be used for work or play
I purchased these jeans for my husband as a Christmas gift and he absolutely loves them! The fit is great, the quality is great and you can't beat the price for such a well-made pair of jeans. After I received my husband's jeans, I ordered another pair for my father and he is also very pleased. We will definitely be ordering more.
My boyfriend is 6' 5" and is a big guy. Carhartt Jeans are the best jeans for him. He is also a heavy equipment operator and farmer so he is very hard on clothes. Carhartt is tough enough for any job. Thanks for making a great product.
These jeans are made with work in mind. They are made with a more durable material than other name brands. The pockets are good sized and also made with a heavy material, back pockets are lined to be tougher. The belt loops are big enough for work belts and spaced right to keep them in place. The zipper is heavy with a decent sized tab. I like the fit for good freedom of movement while working. By the way, they look as good as any other. I wear the new ones when I go out. I have found that I like one size larger waist in these than in some other name brands.
Just received these a week ago. I think these are one of the best pair of jeans I have ever bought. I can't comment on long term durability but the look, fit and wearability has been great. I have already washed and worn them three times this past week.
I am 6 foot 9 inches, 56 years old. I have been buying Levis my whole life but they are getting very hard to find in a 36x38 size. Plus Levis quality has been steadily going down hill. I decided to give Carhartt a try as my tall neighbor has a pair and loves them. Overall the jeans are very nice and seem much better constructed and better material than Levis. They also seem to run true to size. My issue is that they have a very high rise, meaning that they ride at least one or two inches higher on my waist. My college daughter said they look like old man pants and they are not comfortable riding that high.
As a tall person, I struggle to find jeans with a 38" inseam. Wow was I thrilled when I found out that Carhartt had one style available. I immediately ordered two pairs. That was about two years ago. Since then, EVERY time I have checked back in, they have been out of stock in my size. I cannot give them 5 stars unless they are available. If you are the lucky one that is buying them all up, then surely you are posting positive reviews. Also, I really wish they would consider adding a couple more styles with a 38 inch inseam. I would be buying those as well!
I really like(d) these jeans - I've owned several pair but the last two new pair that I had ripped near the zipper after about 45 days of ownership - I wear my jeans about every other week - so this means that in 4 uses the fabric failed- I wear my jeans about a size too big so they are loose fitting - in both cased the fabric ripped about 3 inches up and down about 1/2" from right side of the zipper - the fabric just came apart along the 'weave' line of the cloth. I'm sending this back to Carhartt to see what they say - it's funny that it's the same style both times and my other jeans have never had a failure - other than back pocket rips - that's cuz my butts too big when I stoop down and the fabric pulls on the stitching of the pocket - after about 4 years!
I have 2 pair of B17 jeans that i LOVE!! They are absolutely my favorite jeans because they fit perfectly and look as good as anything does on me these days. Unfortunately the pair of same size B17 jeans that i just bought online don't fit at all because the rise from crotch to waist is 2" smaller than my old jeans. They fit more like low cut hip huggers than the very comfortable Carhartt jeans i'm used to wearing.
I'm waiting to hear from Carhartt if this is an anomaly or the new normal. Just be aware if you're expecting the same comfortable fit from a new pair of B17's as your old ones.
I've had two pair for about two months now and both pair are tearing on the inside corners of the back pockets and on the lower part of the fly. The rest of the jeans look great and are still in good shape and aren't worn. This shouldn't be happening.
I ordered these jeans based on the description and sample photo. They are nothing like the photo. They're huge and fit like clown pants. If the legs were any bigger, I could fit both my legs in one. The jeans seem well made, but I won't find out how well made because I can't wear them. I'm very disappointed.
These jeans fit true to size and are very comfortable. I do appreciate the weight of the denim, however, this does the pants no good as all three of my pairs have developed holes and tears at the top corners of the back pockets. The rest of the jeans have worn well (ie. no holes in the knees). This leads me to believe there is a design flaw in them. I would not recommend these jeans because of this issue.
I agree with all the recent reviews, the jeans are tearing after only a few weeks. I hope Carhartt will address these issues., the jeans are comfortable but I will not continue to buy them for just a few weeks of wear.
