Tough Jeans
These are very good jeans. They are very durable. They have stood up to years of wearing and washing. I like the look. They are a little heavy to wear all year. I would definitely recommend them though.

Yeah, Relaxed fit
Exactly the fit and comfort I’ve come to expect from Carhartt products. In fact, they came a little long in leg length from average - which I prefer & like. “Relaxed fit” is comfortable in the seat and legs with a nice taper to the ankle area. Runs true to size in the waist. I’ll get more!

I am studying up on the #B-17 Relaxed Fit jeans in size 32"W X 28"I and have two pair in my cart, considering more, but after reading a large portion of your 'most recent' reviews (with pictures) I see that there looks to be an issue or defect with the back pockets creating holes on the top corners of them! I don't want to submit my purchase order until this problem is resolved! Can you please tell me what you have found out and if you have resolved this issue yet?

Do they shrink when washed? I have noticed some jeans shrink in the waist when washed so they are too tight and then stretch once worn a few hours.
A shopper on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Jeans shrink when dried in a dryer. Generally, shrinkage is around 2 - 3 % after initial drying. After initial drying, washing will cause them to "stretch" a bit, while drying will cause them to "draw-up" a bit.

Denim is composed of cotton (clothes that are close to, or at 100% cotton). Cotton clothing shrinks when heat is applied to it (very short answer) in the initial drying process. Afterwards, the denim is more-or-less set in the size it's going to be.

The material does "stretch" during wear; cotton does have some "give". The natural properties of cotton. A couple of factors are how much you move around and humidity. When being dried in a heated dryer, the water evaporates from the material and the jeans returns to its "size".

Do you make the b17 in straight leg? Or have you ever. My husband wants the same b17s he has but he doesn’t want tapered legs. RN# 1406
