Disappointing
I ordered 2 pair, one pair fit fine the other pair was too small. i ordered size 38 and the pair that I couldn't button looked like size 36. I ended up giving them away. In the past I have worn B25 the new number is B147 these feel much thinner, I much prefer the heavier weight material. Very disappointing I will not be ordering any more of this item. All the other Carhartt items I have vests and jackets I love.

Shorts didn’t fit.
Too little in waist, too big everywhere else. Didn’t realize they were loose fit. I have other CARHARTT shorts in regular fit that are good.

These are great shorts, in all ways. So I hope not. I like all cotton.
