I've been wearing B25 shorts (primarily, the unwashed version) for most of the last 20+ years. Some of the pairs I have are not much more than threads on the front these days but they are by far the best shorts I've ever worn. Unfortunately, it seems that they are being phased out in favor of cargo, nylon or prewashed shorts as I haven't been able to find a brown duck pair anywhere in the world in 2015.
The B25 are my go to shorts. Been buying for ten years. Best feature is pockets that hold up to all the stuff I carry on the job. Bring back the color choices and keep em short, anything with more than 8.5 inch inseam is a pair of knickers!
I love the b25 shorts and have worn them for years. I live in shorts easily 11 months of the year. I love the fit and comfort and the durability is phenomenal! I am however very disappointed that when it came time to buy my usual four new pairs in black, brown, desert, and moss that the selection has been significantly reduced. I've spent nearly all my waking life for the past twelve years in these. The black ones are my dress shorts. Bring back the colors! Especially the black!
Please bring back Dark Brown and Black. I'm not sure why these are no longer made, but I bought these a couple years ago for work. I wear them everyday. I recently lost some weight and need new shorts. PLEASE bring back these colors! I guess at least for now I will have to buy Wranglers. Too bad!
I work for a local municipality and I am outside in the dirt all day long! I am very impressed with the durability of these shorts. I beat them up pretty bad and when they come out of the wash they look like new again! I have tried my share of different shorts and dollar for dollar they are by far the best product I have found! I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
I have had these shorts before. I like the hammer loop and the side pockets for other tools.I don't wear any other shorts for work besides Carhartt. I wish they would put a piece of leather on the bottom of the right pocket. I like to hang a tape measure there and over time it wears out.
Great pair of shorts. Quality workmanship and long lasting material. These are the only shorts I will wear for work. Wish they had a few more colors to choose from, but other than that I am completely satisfied.
As a lot of others have said in their reviews, I love these shorts, and was very disappointed to see Black discontinued. I buy 4 pair of these a year, and even though you discontinued me size (35"), I still bought 36". PLEASE CARHARTT, GIVE US BACK BLACK. BLACK SHORTS MATTER!!
We appreciate your feedback. Typically when an item, color or size is discontinued it is due to lack of overall sales. We have sent your suggestions to our Product Design team for future consideration.

Just as advertised
For t long I've looked for tough cotton shorts for outdoor work. I haven't yet worked with them outdoors but expect they will be just what I need.Recommendation is "yes.".
For different opinion check out my online purchase of Berwick Jacket. At 63 yrs old I've always needed medium/average sizes. Carharrt's version was a full size larger for me. After reading several other reviews regarding sizes I will not take a chancee to reorder one size smaller.
