I am disappointed that Carhartt no longer makes the heavy gauge fabric painters style shorts.The shorts I have purchased are a very thin fabric that my tools I keep in the pockets will rip through in a few weeks. The cell phone pocket took the place of my box cutter and pencils I keep on that side pocket that fit nicely.I have been wear these shorts for the past 15 years. I soon noticed one less belt hoop in the back and the fabric became less stiff.The shorts have now become paper thin. They will not last in my line of work.Please consider bringing those old shorts back! Thank you. Rob

Good quality
These shorts are stylish and well made but I think they run a little tight.. I have many pairs of shorts that are a 38 waist and all of them fit comfortably but these are a bit tight. I would also like more color options.

I have vert narrow legs requiring a leg width of maximum 10 inches {measured when the short is flat on a table}. I in Toronto I happened to stumble upon a pair [my first of Carhartt] as I've described in my previous sentence], but can't find them. Marks here in Calgary are of absolutely no use. Their staff almost aggressive answering question. And debating with me they can't assist even though your Canadian H.O told me otherwise. Pretty poor eh !!! Can you anyway supply ??
Mike C on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This style will have a leg opening of 24 1/4 to 29 1/2 inches depending on the waist size. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-833-3118, Monday-Friday 8am-9pm EST, for assistance with placing an order.
I need 7 inseam do you have that ?
A shopper on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, 8" is the shortest inseam we offer in men's shorts.
Great shorts have wore them for 4 or 5 years now but not sure why leg opening has to be so wide. Ever plan of a more strait fit style leg?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We'll be glad to share your feedback with Product Design.
Are these shorts pre shrunk?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this item is prewashed. However, this will not prevent the possible shrinkage of 2-4% over the lifetime of the garment.
I have the earlier version of these in size 29. Do they not come in sizes smaller than 30 anywhere? These are the best shorts I've ever had. They last forever, and the fit so well, but 30s will fall off. Any chance they'll come out in smaller sizes soon? I need a few new pairs.
Will L on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, this style is not offered in sizes smaller than 30. We are happy to forward your suggestion with our Product Design Team. You may like our Style B25 that is offered in size 29. The link for this item is below.

Why did you discontinue navy? If not navy please consider a shade of blue.
