Carhartt 5-Pocket Traditional Fit Jeans for Men
Not like they used to be
I've been buying these for about 6 yrs. now. The last 4 pair all developed holes on inside top corner of rear pockets. Causing them to rip out prematurely. In my opinion. Shame to trash jeans that don't look worn at all hardly expect for rear pockets ripping out.
For heavyweight jeans I usually get outstanding wear. Maybe I got a bad batch. They had brown pockets. If that makes a difference I doubt it. Will try comfort fit next.

Great jeans, but...
I bought these about a year ago and decided to hold off on writing a review. These, of all other jeans I've tried, have the best fit ever! I like the traditional fit, that slims down the ankle; I don't like it when my jeans drag on the floor and these were perfect (15.75 leg opening). BUT, the fit is different between the Stonewash and Darkstone. Not sure if it was the batch I got, but the Stonewash was relaxed around the thigh and the slims down through the ankle; Darkstone wasn't like that whatsoever. More tighter around the thigh. I'm 5'11", about 66kg, size 31x32. The previous reviewer, who had a problem with the back pockets, I too, have the same problem, but it took almost 5-7 months for it to show some wear. For me, it was between the butt, right beside the stitching of the back pocket. After a year of hard, everyday use, there's also a small hole underneath my crotch area. Make them more durable Carhartt, cause these jeans are the best I've ever worn!

bought 3 pairs on 2 separate occasions in the past year. Fit is good, very comfortable. The problem is that of the 6 that I bought, in the past 2 months, 4 of them have ripped in the same spot, by the back pocket in the upper corner. They then have proceeded to rip out along the pocket all the way up to the waistline. Poorest quality jeans that I have ever had. Have had to throw all 4 pairs away, non-fixable.

Not what I expected
I was hoping for a pair of heavy duty jeans for bad weather outdoor wear. Fit was definitely on the very slim side. I have an athletic build so was surprised that they were this snug. Would try a looser fit in the future. Unfortunately they were no heavier than what I can get at the mall. I returned them, but might try again in the summer when I need warm weather jeans.
