Not only have we been making clothes for the worker for over a century, we’ve been talking to our consumers for over a century. In order to make sure our products will continue to serve your needs for the next century, we’ve enlisted an army of hardworking men and women to help us develop a better product and experience. We call these folks "Groundbreakers."

Nice pants. I bought another brand for years. They stopped the double knees unless you went to a higher priced nylon knee. Too stiff.

Very cool looking!
They run a little small in the thigh for me but wicked looking pants! I can fit a 34 waist but legs too tight so bought 35 cause 36 was too loose to stay up. When you put stuff in the pockets they get a little tight, especially when seated. Still badass pants and love they way they look and feel.
If you are ordering online, go one size up, otherwise try on different sizes for best fit.

Do items fall out of the front pockets when one would sit down? I tried a pair on at the store, and it seemed like the front pockets are much more shallow than the competitor's, and that there isn't a stitch that would prevent things like keys, chap stick, fingernail clippers, etc from falling out when sitting down.
Keith B on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've never lost anything out of them but I've only ever had keys, maybe some change from time to time. The other issue is getting used to the awkward feel when you just want to slide your hands in your pockets. (The flat for the tape holder more than makes up for it all though, everybody at the job site is COMPLETELY jelly!)

Can I special order 26 x 29?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, but we do not offer custom orders.
Would love these in dark blue for fire/ems day pants. (I have coffee & desert now) I like the side pocket designs for some small gear, particularly that they snap closed and the right pocket patch for knife clip wear. And like the sturdy tough material as opposed to standard BDU stuff. I work a rough mountainous area and can go through pants. Any chance dark blue may be coming ??

Why not make overalls in this same cotton ripstop fabric, with double knees, tool loops, etc.?
WILLIAM L on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We will share your feedback with Product Design.
do you make knee pads for these pants( what is that hole on the bottom of the knee fabric)?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hole at the bottom of the double knee area is called a cleanout bottom. Due to the construction of double knee pants, gravel and debris can sometimes get in there and having the open bottom allows it to come out easily. Some people do choose to put knee pads inside. We do not make them, but you may be able to purchase some on of www.safeworker.com.
when did you stop making above 44 waist?
Brian C on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sizes over 44 waist were discontinued for this style in 2014. We apologize that the size you are interested in has been discontinued. Typically when we discontinue an item, size or color it is due to lack of sales. Although an item may sell well in one region, if it does not do well nationwide we are forced to discontinue that item.

Bob L on Oct 13, 2016
