I have worn carharrt jeans for close to 10 years. The B180 and B280 were both very well made, durable, and good fitting for work. I have always been impressed with carharrt products and rely on them greatly for outside work.
The B480 is a disappointment, its low rise is not conducive to work, and it seams like they ride up the backside.
The quality of the denim seams to be poor compared to the prior designs, like they are trying to produce a more "trendy" jean.
I don't purchase carharrt to be trendy, I purchase their products because of high quality and design.
I'm greatly disappointed that carharrt discontinued the b180 and b 280. I hope they can bring them back.
I hope the b480 isn't a sign of what they will produce in the future.
I have purchased the B480's for years and they always sit at my waist. The information here still says the sit at the waist. I ordered 3 pairs from an online vendor and the tag on the jeans now says they sit slightly below the waist, which they do. I have given the 3 pair away because I don't like the way they now fit. I will need to find another brand that fits at the waist.
I have been searching to replace the jeans that I have worn for 50 years. The usual jean is fit for big butt guys. This product is very well made. The fit is perfect and the material is superior. Quality is beyond reproach. I will buy more soon.
everything about this jean is great the 15 ounce material is exactly whats needed more in the manufacturing of a good pair of jeans if not more durable, but there are some things id reccomend, 1. is to make a bootcut version of the 15 ounce
I bought three pairs of these jeans on a freinds recommendation the first pair fit good then on the second day I put another pair on an while at work the back end by the pocket ripped all the way down , in all my years of buying levi s I have never had that happen , maybe its a fluke I dont know , took them back an bought Levi s!
the 5 letter jeans and try these. Heavier fabric resists snagging, is durable, good looking, and longer lasting. They fit perfectly as stated, just below the waist, has a durable zipper, rivets, and nice stitching. The variety in sizes allows a custom fit, and they retain their color well. What's not to like(?), I haven't found it yet.
I have worn these jeans for years and I could always count on them being the same. But the last pair were two inches shorter in the stride and shrunk 2 inches in length when washed. That has never happened before. Some executive decided they would make more money with a lower quality material and by cutting out inches in the stride. After 15 years with Carhartt I am switching to Wranglers.

Classic denim stretches
As a 55 year old, reasonably athletic190lbs, I wear a 34-35 waist line for office/dress pants. With these jeans, however, wanting a form-fitting but not tight fit, I need to drop down to 32 waist. It's a little tight going on at first and after every wash, but very quickly stretches to perfect feel for me. I tried a 33 to see the difference and it very quickly felt slightly baggy. So downsize your waist line on these, unless you like a looser feel.
i love carhartt for its durable strong jean material but there are only 2 issues with it, one is that it doesnt come in dark bluestone, and more then that it doesnt have a 29-28 inseam, im a shorter guy 5'5-5'6 and i like therelaxed version that has that, but the 28 inseam in slightly skinnier jeans"aka traditional style" would really make me happier. I love everything about these jeans except for the length, the durability is awesome the 7 thick belt loops are great, and the tripple stitching is beyond the calling but the inseam is the only issue. also i LOVE that its not below the waist line. some people in life are hard workers not gangsters lol, but yea the length is an issue for me.
I have been wearing Carhartt B180DST Jeans for a very long time and can't seem to find anymore. If this jean has been discontinued I will have to find another brand to buy. Very disappointed with Carhartt.
Yes, the legs are wide enough both for work boots and cowboy boots. No problem. Also, you can get the hem altered to 8" across for the "stacked" look (taper the inside seam up to the knee), which will keep the legs from reaching the ground no matter how long they are.
