The quality & expected durability of Carhartt goes w/o saying. However, since no one carries 36" inseam, I made the mistake of ordering these w/o trying on. At 6'3", 230 lb, I usually do well with relaxed 38x36, but these fit the waist and thighs very tight. I had to suck in to button w/o a shirt and the binding around the thighs & crotch make it hard to imagine bending and working. They cinch in on the inner thigh just going up steps. This is all said with having relatively lean thighs and comfortably trying on 38" levis and lees earlier today! Will likely be returning as they are just too far from claimed size.
I've had these pants for over a year now and they've shown very minimal wear (which is extremely good for me as my work tends to be hard on clothing - I wear completely through a pair of jeans in just a few months). They are also the most comfortable pair of pants I own, and fit me perfectly after I purchased them without trying them on. I NEVER write reviews, but I came on to buy more of these pants and decided I needed to write a review while I was here. Seriously, best pair of pants I've even owned.
I've owned several pair of these pants and they are my go to pants for work or play. Durability is five star plus. They fit and I don't have a problem with the length shrinking after a few washes. I wish there were more colors to choose from. They are the only pants I buy for work.
I purchased the Carhartt Brown and the Dark Coffee. The Carhartt Brown pants are perfect and love them. However, the Dark Coffee are much stiffer and more tight fitting than the Carhartt Brown. It almost seems as if the Dark Coffee aren't weathered. Overall though, I love the Carhartt Brown pants. Great alternative to the B11and B136 for when you still want to wear your Carhartt pants, but don't want or need the extra pockets and hammer loop. Also great alternative to wearing jeans.
These pants are too tight in the thighs for me. I'm a thin guy so that is pretty unusual for me. The material feels rugged and durable but the fit is uncomfortable. If they loosen the thighs these would be great pants.
