Your Quality is Fading
I've bought these shorts for years and never had a complaint. But since you've discontinued the 8" shorts and lightened the material (They now feel thin as a handkerchief.) I must start looking elsewhere for work shorts. I did buy a couple of pair before I knew this however, and spent 25.00 on alterations. Not a bargain at that price.

Good for a year or so
Bought these and the Rigby so I'd have something to wear doing yard work and wouldn't mind getting them dirty. They both lasted about a year before the fabric started getting real thin, splitting and tearing. On both of them. Couple photos attached. One showing a split between two patches my wife thought would extend their life. Good for casual wear. I wouldn't wear these as work shorts.

I wasn’t looking for capris
I don’t understand why Carhartt discontinued the 8” short. These have been my go to work wear for several years, but now the 10” is all that’s available. Add another 12 bucks to the price to have them hemmed and they’re not such a good value. Why doesn’t someone make a simple, 8” short without all the pockets and hammer loops? Really disappointing, I went to Amazon and bought all the 8” I could find.

Is Carhartt disconuing the #B147?
These are great shorts, in all ways. So I hope not. I like all cotton.
