Remember when pants and leggings were not the same? About 15 years ago when every pair of women's pants on earth was styled to look as much like a pair of tights as possible, I stopped buying. I want pants comfortable in the hips, no gaping in the waist, lots of room to move if I need to bend/crawl/climb, cut like a pair of pants (not a pair of tights), and ABLE TO FIT OVER MY BOOTS. These are not quite the perfect design of women's Carhartt 20 years ago, but they're close. No, they will not glue themselves to your thighs. If you will be sad that onlookers can't discern the exact contours of your calf muscles, these are not for you. But if you like your pants to not be leggings, you may like these. I'm curvy enough that wearing men's pants is impossible -- yet these match my hip/waist ratio just right. In regards to the reviews complaining about so much width below the knee -- the ankle is the same width as the knee. In the early 2000s that was considered a "medium" width. These don't even qualify as what used to be called "boot cut" (and still is, in men's pants, since men are apparently the only ones who wear boots). Unfeminine? No. A bit retro compared to current styles? Yes. Also, they fit a little small. I bought a "relaxed fit" size 12 and this "original fit" size 14 on the same day, so some detail on the sizing chart would help. Carhartt, please more original fit!!!

The material and quality of the jeans are comfortable. The bad thing about these jeans is the fit. I’m a size 2 in skinny and curvy jeans from American Eagle. For Carhartt jeans I’m a size 8! Every time I order jeans I need to have them fixed in length and fit. Can Carhartt start implementing the jean supplier that is similar in size to know which size will fit best?
