I have worn these jeans for years and and always loved the way they fit and how comfortable they were. The last two pair I bought though are way tighter in the seat than any of my previous pairs. The pant leg openings are also a little smaller. Previous pairs were made in Mexico, these in Nicaragua, Carhart says no design change, but they sure fit different than previous pairs.
Several months ago Carhart began selling thier jeans sized to sit slightly below the waist. Before they had always sat at the natural waist. Now these jeans feeel like they are always falling down and I spend all day trying to tug them back up.So now I am walking around in totally worn out jeans because I absolutely detest the new styling.
When I was looking for a pair of Carharrt pants, my local store just got this model in. I picked up a pair, and I think these pants are a great deal. DVB is a color for the pants, and they are really comfortable. My only problem is it took a day or two of wearing them to get them to fully fit. These pants are tight in the crotch region, but after a few days, they were fine.
These feel paper thin. No way in the world are these 15oz. denim. Maybe they need to make them 20oz. so they feel like 15oz. It could be that some are made in different Countries and the material is not as thick in different places. I don't know but I hate thin feeling denim clothes. Levis are so inconsistent that there not an option. Give me a good heavy denim jean and I will be happy.
I had the opportunity to purchase four pairs of pants through my work I had ordered these B460 along with 100066 pants from Carhartt . Within one year of wearing my two pairs of B460 they have ripped in the crotch making them useless to war and my two pairs of 100066 pants are still going strong but unfortunately Carhartt is discontinuing the 100066.
I tried on a pair of these in 30x30 and they were comfortable and fit well. I grabbed a second pair off the shelf and bought both. When I got home I pulled the tags off to wash them and noticed the second pair had one leg 2 inches longer than the other. This is unacceptable so I took them back to the store and they exchanged them for another pair in 30x30. I held them up and the legs were the same length.
I washed both, wore the first pair yesterday, and have on the second pair today. Now I notice that the right leg on these is sewn in a way that the leg is twisted and the outside seam ends up centered over my shin and boot. Again, unacceptable, but I've already washed them so I'm stuck with them.
I would attach a photo if I could. I am very displeased with the recent Poor Quality Control at Carhartt. I have older jackets and overalls that are perfectly sewn and seem to be much better quality.
Carhartt has lost me as a customer, and I will make sure to spread the word about their shoddy workmanship.
Excellent fit and quality jeans. Took a few days to break in after several cold washing/drying/ air dry and ironing felt great and did not shrink. They are true fit- to size. Would choose over Levi's, Lee's and Wranglers. These jeans feel 2-3x thicker than the above mentioned jeans, much more durable.
I purchased these jeans for my husband who would only wear Levi's. We thought he could give these a try and he says they are the most comfortable jeans he has ever had, they look good, they washed nice and I approve! Now we need to buy additional ones!
The reason Carhartt workwear has always been my choice is the fit. The jeans were advertized as 'Work Fit" and had a larger inseam. It`s nice to see some new styles, but everything I`ve tried from jackets, shirts, and jeans have run small. Hope Carhartt considers making the "new" styles with the "old" fit. These are not for big guys.
I really do love these jeans. I just bought these and a pair of cargo pants. Both are labeled relaxed-fit. I used to use Levi's because they offered some really baggy pants that actually gave me room to move. Their quality has plummeted and prices have soared. And, I finally found a local place to try the Carhartt pants on for size. The Carhartts are well built and seem to be of high quality; time will tell. But, here's the problem: they barely fit my legs! The waist and bottom area fit well (34). But the thigh area is a wee tight and when I walk fast, I find the legs bind. When I climb stairs, ladders, rocks, scaffolding, they bind. The pics on the web-site show a worker on an oil rig with a great deal of motion going on--is this a model or actual worker with worker muscles? Hey, I'm 64 years old and a shadow of what I used to be and I was hoping for a larger fit in a real worker jean or pant. I have had over the years to buy pants a size or two large and just cinch up my belt. A poor solution. There must be real workers that don't have boy bodies out there!
The B234 where my favorite jeans for years. When I would find them in my size I would always purchase all the store had. Just wanted to say after researching and finding out they were discontinued that I'm very disappointed to know that find these anymore.
I am stocky, 5' 10" and 230 lbs.These jeans are Great fitting and very comfortable.I wear western boots almost all the time and the pant legs easily fit over my boots. I live in snow country and the weight of these jeans is Very nice for our cool weather. I spend a lot of time outside and I love the carhartt line of clothes and coats for their comfort,durability and warmth. I expect my clothes to be as tough as the tools that I use, Carhartt is the best line of clothes on the market
i have written a few reviews on carhartt pants and there is one thing that i always have an issue with, the inseam, its to long, I chose this pair of jeans to write a review about because they thankfully have the 28" inseam which im very greatful for, ive had inseams of these jeans that are 30" and they rip every time, im seeing though that you are starting to phase out the 28" inseam, if you do ill be greatly dissapointed and you will most likely loose me as a frequent customer, Not everyone in this world is some tall dude, we need jeans that can fit everyone not just a few, im also writing this review because i still really really want the traditional straight versions of these jeans in 28" inseam, thats the major reason im writing this. i love your products you just need to think about the shorter males of the world, after all the shorter you are the longer life you have, and the more we have to buy your products so please do me this one request and make more 28" inseams. especially for 33 x 28, thanks also one last thing, please make the material a tad bit stronger like you did on the flame resistant. thanks
