Our founder, Hamilton Carhartt, spoke to railroad workers on the job as he developed Carhartt’s very first products. 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."

Great value!
I purchased a pair of these shorts for my dad for work, and they’re exactly what he needed! The right length/color, they have a loop on one side and a phone pocket. They seem to fit well and are comfortable too.

Great shorts
This is the shorts version of the B11 Dungaree including all the pockets. Well made, strong and useful. Bit too long for me but after adjustment perfect.

Work shorts
This is my 3rd pair. First ones were great, second pair started to tear around the waste after 5 months of normal wear and then completely fell apart shortly thereafter. I just purchased my 3rd pair. So far so good. Otherwise, good durable pair of shorts.

Teacher wardrobe
My school has issues with HVAC. The folks who supervise the Maintenance Dept are overpaid clowns. During hot spells my go-to wardrobe includes these shorts with a polo shirt and hiking boots. I teach high school and while I used to wear khakis, a button down shirt, and a tie, my duck shorts don't get torn and stained.

Please bring back the Carhartt brown!!!!?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We'll be glad to pass your feedback along to Product Design.
Why oh why did you discontinue these shorts in Carhartt brown? They are the only shorts my husband wears from spring through fall. (Carhartt brown pants in the winter.) PLEASE bring this color back.
Carole R on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We apologize that the color 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. We are happy to share your suggestion with our Product Design team.
Why do you not have more colors?
Jeff W on Jun 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Color options are looked at on a season-by-season, item-by-item basis by our Product Development department. We cannot advise specifically why certain choices are made, but we are very glad to pass customer feedback along.
Do you make 100140 shorts?
A shopper on May 16, 2018

Bring back black and gray. I buy exclusively Carhartt. My wife thinks that I'm crazy. I own at least 70 or more Carhartt items. I gained weight and need to buy more, I'm a plumber, dark colors hide better?
A shopper on May 10, 2018

What does the term DUCK refer to when describing work short #B25?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Duck is our classic, 12 ounce ring-spun cotton fabric. It is known for being tough and durable. The B25 is actually a washed duck, so we have taken additional steps to break the product in a bit for you beforehand. It will feel a little softer than the original firm duck, but be just as rugged.
Are these shorts gusseted?
Derek C on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not.
When will you be bringing back the black B25's? We NEED them!!
A shopper on Aug 15, 2016
