I tried on these pants in size 40x30 and they were too tight. My normal size in all my other Carhartt pants (i have about 6 old pairs of all different styles) is 38x30. The pants did not fit. I went up a size to 42x30 and they fit great, very comfortable and look awesome. These were in Hickory color, so i thought i would get a pair in Gravel as well. I grabbed the exact same size and they were far too big, far is an understatement. so in case it was a one off pair, i tried on two other pairs in gravel and all were enormous! I went down a size and they were too tight. Why are the sizes so different in the different colors??? Because of this i don't feel i can buy a pair of carhartt pants online now, because you really have no idea what size would fit and what would not. you cannot base the size on another pair of pants that you own, not even the same pants in a different color! Carhartt, i have a ton of your stuff and i love your stuff, i really do, but issues like this are crazy! i wish you could do better because i really want to wear your clothes!!!
I love how well these pants flex with my movements. I am a furniture maker and often find myself crouching around projects and these pants move without restrictions, and they are quite comfortable as well.
I got these for work because of the flex, I like the ability to move freely these pants provide. I don't feel like the fit is good, one size is just too big for me, the other too small. Other than that, the pants seem durable and of good quality. I prefer the cryders but these are a good pant too.
I find thsee Carhartt work jeans very comfortable I bought 3 pair and I do plan on buying more in the future once these I got wear out if they ever do because I find Carhartt clothing so durable and relaxing that if I would say that Carhartt done the job Right they have Pride in their work.
Have been a long time wearer of another style Carhartt pant that has been discontinued. Thought I'd give these Rigby 5 Pocket pants a try. I ordered two pair; Hickory and Gravel in 33" x 34". I received both pair and tried on the Hickory first. Good initial fit. The Gravel pair were way to tight in the waist to the point I could barely button them. I washed the Hickory pair and they still fit very well. Not very satisfied that the same pants in different colors fit so differently. Not likely to order from Carhartt directly again.
Love these pants, went to order more in tan and in true Carhart fashion they are being discontinued in this color. I have the Rigby Flex Pants in model number 102291 and they don't fit the same as these. I have muscular legs and a smaller waist so finding pants that fit is really difficult and these were great.
I had ordered these for my boyfriend a while ago when he was on the hunt for the perfect work pants. He loved them so much that we had to order more. We actually ended up at our local store to get a couple of pairs so he didn't have to wait for them to ship :) They are perfect for construction - paired with the Carhartt Baseforce Xtreme Lightweight boxer briefs!!
I've had pants from all major manufacturers of rugged work pants, and these surpass them all. I have three pairs of these and just ordered two more. They stay true to size, don't lose their shape in the wash and can be worn in the field or in a boardroom with no extra work. I've worn them with an oxford and sweater to work and a flannel or hoodie on the weekends. I'd highly recommend.
Since my work wardrobe is almost exclusively Carhartt, I found that these are a great compliment for more casual wear. I wouldn't expect these to hold up like the heavier duck material, but I purchased these for comfort with Carhartt quality, which is exactly what I got.
I bought 3 pairs and 2 of them had threads coming off the inner calf seam. They do run long, about an inch, compared to every other brand I wear. Otherwise, I really like these pants. Many pants either fit really tight or really loose on my slim build. These found the perfedct middle ground, as well as offering a slight stretch. I also like the 5th pocket because I carry a multitool and a flashlight at work. It also fits my cell phone so I don't have to fish it out of a front pocket when sitting down.
If they fix the thread issue, and maybe got the length in line with every other major brand, they would be the best pants I've owned.
