CON: 1. Normally, a pant mfr will size the pants to fit the hips if they are intended to be worn below the waist, hence a low rise jean would be labeled 32" Waist but actually measure 34" since a man with a 32" waist would have slightly larger hips. But not these jeans: order your hip measurement, not your waist size.
2. Front pockets are very shallow: will not fit a large smart-phone, for example.
3. Thin denim might develop holes at stress points.
MY FAVORITE JEAN. THIS JEAN IS GREAT FOR EVERYDAY WEAR. THE MATERIAL IS BREATHABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, AND STRONGER THAN MOST JEANS THAT ARE THIS STYLISH. I WEAR THESE OUT, DOING YARD WORK, AND WORKING ON THE TRUCK. NOT MY FIRST CHOICE ON THE JOBSITE, BUT A GREAT EVERYDAY JEAN WITH THE QUALITY YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM CARHARTT.
I always purchased the relaxed fit with 141/2 inch leg openings and sits at natural waist. I now must find a new brand of jeans to purchase. By lowering the waist on these jeans, it pushed me out of being a LOYAL customer. I've always purchased a minimum of six pairs every August for the new school year.
The rise on these jeans is way too low, it makes them very uncomfortable. I love the jean color and material, it is very rugged and looks great. If these jeans had a higher rise they would absolutely be my favorite pair of jeans of all I own. Everything else about the fit is perfect, not too baggy or too tight, but I don't wear them often because the low rise is so uncomfortable.
They have a rugged, masculine feel and an under-stated very cool style and since they are not too faded or too dark, not too loose or too tight I feel great wearing them no matter where I am or what I'm doing.
They do ride slightly lower than others, more towards the hips than the waist but I like that because somehow it makes you feel sexy wearing them.
deffinatly not with your money, looks good but not at all durable, basicly new still and both knees have tears in them, would not buy these again. i am terribly dissipointed the the material used for these jeans bought them because carhartt has a reputation of being quality cant say that i am at all satisfied with my purchace, spend your money on another brand of jean.
I am extremely satisfied with the relaxed fit straight leg jeans i have purchased. They are stylish enough that i would feel comfortable wearing them out for a night with friends and yet durable enough that i could wear them on a construction site. The quality of the jeans are top notch, and they are are the most comfortable jeans i have owned. I hope this style is available for a long time. The only negative thing I have to say is that I wish there were more colors to choose from. I now own four pairs of these jeans. Good Job!
I Went with the B18 Traditional fit. The relaxed fit tends to ride low on the hips leaving for a tight fit in the crotch, and pockets too small to fit anything that an adult male regularly carries from day to day.
I have bought B320's in the past that are as pictured with the small Carhartt patch in the upper corner of the right hand pocket. For some reason I can't find this style now. Have you changed them? All I can find are the jeans with the large emblem in the center of the rear pocket.

BEST ANSWER:We apologize our patch has been updated and this style is no longer made with the patch in the upper corner of the pocket. The Carhartt patch is in the center of the rear pocket.
