These are Perfect.
First: I have been wearing this style of shorts for 10 years and have owned around 20 pairs. They are easily the most perfect work shorts for me. The right-side lower pocket perfectly holds my phone; the wide belt loops support a gun belt & holster. They are very rugged and stand up to daily hard wear.

For the price, you get what you pay for. If I get 5 pair, that's around $200USD. If I get 4 - 6 years of wear per pair, that's an investment of around $35USD a year total for work shorts. I cycle through the new ones which I wear at home and as they get more worn they go into the "work only" pile.

Shorts vary in fabric weight.
Purchased 4 pair of B147 shorts. Three were packaged differently and were of lighter weight material and the cell phone pocket was higher on the leg and a shorter pocket. The odd package was a heavier fabric and the cell phone pocket like my other B147s. Not pleased with the lighter weight.

needs better dyes, maybe some form of color stay technology.
awesome fit an finish, just not sure about the dyes they use. i dont have tinted windows in my car, so right now in AZ were getting 108 to 114, no biggie. But when i leave work in the afternoons the sun shines right down on my left leg. I noticed a little fading after a few days of wear thinking it was work related, nope it just kept fading so bad that on leg is now a tan color and the rest of the shorts are navy. Only took a week and half for the sun the bleach these shorts.

34 fits like a 32
Fits too tight for a 34 on the waist. Length is perfect. It makes me think it’s a skinny fit as opposed to how most carhartt products run a little big.

A shopper on Jul 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We did change all patches to the white cloth patch to keep consistency within the brand.
