carhart work shorts bk
live in Tx so shorts vital. Bought Carhart as have a shorter inseam option so hammer loop hits leg higher than other work shorts. have a lot of Carhart gear so shorts were an easy choice. Carhart direct was cheaper than retail

What is relaxed at Carhartt?
These denim shorts are more heavy duty than I need. I’m going to return them because, the size relaxed 36 fit like a 34. Relaxed 36 with competitor brand fit like a 38. By the way Carhartt will accept returns, not exchanges for a larger size, and my local store is closed.

Will the pocket hold a iPhone 7 Plus?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Depends on which pocket your referring, though. If you’re talking about the utility pockets, the larger one holds an iPhone 7, but just barely. If you’re talking about the 2 front pockets, yes, they will hold a 7 Plus. They hold my iPhone X.

I bought these in 31 waist and they fall off me without a belt. I bought the 31 waist canvas shorts that fit perfectly. Now I'm not sure what to buy. Anyone else see a difference in sizing between the canvas and denim?
