Exactly what a great quality pair of jeans should be. Only reason I didn't give it 5* is the rise is too high for me. Other than that they're perfect.

I’m NOT into relaxed fit, so a tighter fit is a little better for me.

5 Stars for all of the above, Except!
The main reason I sent them back was the waist ran way small! Having several pair of jeans of different brands with 34 & 35 inch waist sizes that fit great, this waist seemed more like a 32. In addition from the knee down the tapered fit was as expected, but the thighs were baggy. Something my wife refers to as Mom Jeans . Sorry, I really like everything about your stuff and service.

For ladies too!
I am a woman who owns a farm and who loves these jeans for myself. I am 5 foot 8 and 125 pounds. They fit perfectly in a size 30/34. They are rugged yet flattering and comfortable. I get tired of women's jeans wearing out so soon, so I have switched to Carhartt.

How much difference in the rise between the B18 and original B480, size 34?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The B18 have a tapered leg and the B480's have a straight leg.
Is the B18 DST being discontinued? I have been searching the internet for these in a size 48x32 for a couple of months now and I cannot find them anywhere
A shopper on Jun 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the color you are interested in, Darkstone, 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.
I have a pair of traditional fit jeans that say inside RN#14806 4800 or next to the size it says 101496 420. How do I know if these are the B480 or B18 or is there a different model?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You will have style 101496 our Elton Jean. It will be the same fit as the B18 and B480.
I have a 34 waist. What is the difference in leg opening between the B-18 and the B-480 ?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The leg opening in the B18 for a 34 waist will be 18 3/4", for the B480 will be 17 1/2".
The description says "Straight traditional fit tapered leg"??? Which is it? Straight, Traditional, or tapered? also where will the waist band sit?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Straight / Traditional refers to the fit in the seat and thigh. This jean has a tapered leg. The waist band sits above the natural waist.
will these fit over a slip on boot?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the calf size of the boot. I have had good luck using laced boots. Pull on boots like cowboy boots just depend on calf size but overall work really well. Generally speaking they work very well for slipping over boots!
Are these jeans breathable and good for the summer?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Seems breathable to me, not lightest weight but due to thickness of denim that’s expected
are the jeans pockets large enough to fully accommodate (nothing showing) a large Iphone?
nat l on Feb 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Back pocket no. Front pocket yes.
Has anyone experienced wear marks below the knees on B18s. I have 12 pairs with the same marks. I don't work on my knees at all. Two or three washings and wear marks appear. about 4 in. below the knees ??
BOB on Feb 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My husband has not experienced wear marks around the knee area, but where the back pocket is tacked/stitched in the top corner every pair of his jeans in the last 2-3 years has gotten holes after just a few wearings. He also has worn these jeans exclusively for over 15 years, and this is a recent development. He is about to switch brands after being a loyal customer for years because who can walk around with their underwear showing through holes! They are DEFINITELY starting to have quality issues.
does anyone know why all my b18s show wear marks 4 or 5 inches below the knees? I don't work on my knees. I probably have 10-15 pairs showing these marks.
A shopper on Jan 30, 2020
is this a zipper fly?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes.
Do they make traditional fit tapered leg Jean in black or gray ?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This style will not come in black or gray. We do have style 102821 that will come in Shadow and be a tapered leg.
Why no 38 inseam?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer a 38 inch inseam at this time. We have forwarded this as a suggestion to our Product Design Team.
what is the difference between b18 STW and B18 Dst? The DST don't fit me as comfortably as the STW.
Jim M on May 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: STW and DST are just the color codes. STW is Stonewash and DST is Darkstone.
what is the rise on the 35x30 size?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Front Rise for 35x30 is 12 3⁄16 inches and the Back Rise is 16 1⁄16 inches.
Why don't you offer a 38 or 40 inch inseam?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We do offer a 38 inseam in style # B17 (which is relaxed fit).
Do you make a B18 in a 12 oz denim ?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Our B18 will be a 15oz denim. We will have style 102807 that will be a 12oz fabric.
Looking for jeans that can fit over cowboy boots?
A shopper on Jan 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These have a tapered leg, which means the leg opening is a bit narrower. The leg opening in a size 36 waist in this style is about 16 1/8" around.
Do they fit at the waist?
A shopper on Jan 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These jeans are designed to sit above the waist.
Where does the taper on the legs begin?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The tapering begins above the ankle and once you've placed your shoes on it flairs narrow at the bottom (hence the name instead of wide) so a person would actually shroud the bottom portion of the jeans around one's shoes and if your wearing nice shoes or boots in my opinion they actually accent their look....I should also state they fit my build (more slender) well I'm approximately 6" 175 Lbs. and these pants are not as loose fitting in the thighs or calve area as other jeans might be so therefore I don't get that loose baggy look one might see in many jeans today although there still not to tight or uncomfortable on my lower body....Also the waistline fits true to form as any jeans you might purchase....I hope this helps....M.H.
I like the B17 (or B18) style jeans but can’t find the 36” leg when selecting the 35” waist. Do they not come in that length for the 35” waist or are they sold out? Either color is fine
Michael L on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style is not made in a 35x36.
Can you please make more high waisted jeans b 18 IS BEST JEANS EVER THANK YOU MY PC SGT. ?
A shopper on Nov 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We'll be glad to share your input with our Product Design department.
What is the leg opening for 30 x 30 and 30 x 32 size?
Andrew S on Sep 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The leg opening is based on the waist size. It would be about 15" around with a 30" waist.
I’m looking for B18STW with tan pockets??
A shopper on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The pocket color was a rolling change. All pockets will be in white.
Whats the ankle on the
traditional the same as relaxed ?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style has a tapered leg meaning it will get narrow at the ankle.
Have you fixed the quality issue of the premature failure of fabric/construction of the B18 jeans? aka holes by rear pockets,crotch rips, etc? The only jeans I bought till a half dozen pairs failed in 2 months or less.
Tom B on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please contact us at 1 800 833 3118 if you are having concerns with your Carhartt jeans.
Boy sizes?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer this style in children's sizes.
What is the leg opening size on the B18 for a waist size of 36 or 38?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 36 is 16 1/8 inches and 38 is 16.5 inches.
Is the only difference between the B18 and the B480 leg opening? Do they fit the same everywhere else?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2017
