Jeff, I"m a big Carhart fan, and I've found their products to be extremely durable.  I used to buy them from their "seconds" store in Kentucky - it was only last year that I discarded a jacket and pair of insulated overalls that I bought there about 15 years ago.

Based on the feedback on this string, I might have to try some of the Bailey's wild ass doubles though.

Wild Ass pants???? Hmmmmm Mebey they should call them "Ferral Donkey" pants to avoid any confusion. :D :D

 Seriously, in the summer, I like jeans but was blowing out  crotches before the things even started to fade. At Costco's I found regular lookin jeans that they call "Stretch Denim". They arnt tight or anything like that but when you jump up on a log/mill/loader/whatever, no  more "decrotchulation" of the jeans. They stretch like spandex and are comfy. In the winter, not so good.  ;D

This thread is great!  lol


I have worn double front Carhartts For about 15 years now.  The only thing I find wearing out is the top of the back pockets.  The rivets holding on the upper part of the back pocket tends to be a weak point.  Since there is only one layer on the bum it rips then shows right through.  I have never had a problem with the crotch ripping out.  They might get worn early from all the scratching that gets done around that area!  They still haven't failed though.  I still own and wear all of my Carhartts I just have had to throw the occasional ass patch in for the pocket rip thing.  However the single layer Carhartts suck as regular pants and work pants in my opinion.  I have had the single layer pants blow out in no time.  I wish they made a double front overall/bib but I haven't seen them yet.  The only good ones I have seen have a zipper all the way down the side and most of them only have the double front on the knees.  Or they are lined.  Good for the cold but when it gets hot...it gets hot!

I have no idea how you guys get pants to last that long. Not that mine don't last that long but Patty is constantly shrinking them in the washer. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :D

Get mine at Tractor Supply (franchised farm store) I was blowing out the crotches in my old ones as well. Until you find the right "fit" for you even the recommended ones here may not work for you, so many variations and sizes, you really need to keep trying until you find one that fits. Mine are Schmit (sic) and are 16-19 dollars a pair. Old girl friend's father used to say if Tractor Supply didn't carry it, he didn't need it, I am coming close to the same quote. Ahhhh middle age.

I don't know what brand my work pants are. All I see is Made in Canada on the tag inside. They are about $29 I think and cotton, not denim. I can't wear jeans, too hot and they stick to ya in the heat. How do you guys wear them in the heat down south? I'd be worn out fighting my pants.  ;D

I did buy a couple pair of Kodiak pants this summer at Wal-Mart. They were alright after I washed them once. But One of the snap fastened flew apart after about 5 seconds of wear and I took and sewed a big button on in it's place. I like buttons the best. That's one beef I have with the Canadian pants, they converted from a button to a sliding metal clasp. I hate those things. Whose brain wave was that?  >:(

Oh I went and looked, they are Kodiak Pathfinder and Dickies but they look the same. I think the Kodiak are $2 cheaper than Dickies. Made in Canada though. But judging by the label on the Wal-mart Kodiak Pathfinder, maybe they got sent offshore now.  ::)

I been buying the Sam's club brand...  They are $14 or thereabouts.
The fabric is a little thinner than the Levi's I used to get but I usually get
battery acid on em before they rip so it doesn't matter much.

I like kakies or work pants, but i grew a gut and pushed my pants below my gut and that pushed the pant crotch away from my crotch and they started blowing out. I started getting the lee dungrarees in carpenter pants at pennys you can get them with a shorter crotch and zipper. The pant crotch came back up were its suppose to be and no more blowouts. I would like to find some short crotch work pants, maybe i should lose the gut.

I wear jeans almost all the time, even back when I was teaching

I buy walmart wranglers I think they are $16.88, I use them for regular everyday wear till i forget that I am not working and get them extra dirty( all the time) then they turn into work pants.  Most of them hold up well, but a few years back, had a batch that the waist button faild......Wallmart made good on those, and will get crotch blowouts, but not at the seam, more like in the material itslf.   I can't complain at these prices, but wonder how the washer puts up with all the sawdust that I forget to clean from the pockets.

By tthe way I also bought one of those woven web type belts so I can cinch it up tight when needed to keep from looking like a boy from the hood ;D

OK  :D(he's cute)  

So much about the type of pants you wear, now what about that oil stain that shows up on the front of your pants just above the knees  >:(  

You Wood-Mizer guys and gals know what I am talking about,  that oil stain caused from the track oil while reaching from the operators side of the mill.

I used to stick with Carhartt pants or overalls exclusively, but when I started paying attention to those labels inside where it says "Made In ________", I had to give them up. I do have some of the Wild Ass Doubles from Bailey's, and they fit good, wear well, etc. and are a product of Canada. I have no quarrel with the Canuck neighbors. But recently I found Diamond Gusset jeans, made right here in Tennessee! Other than being home-grown, they have designed their pants so the seams don't all run to one junction that happens to be in the crotch.  Looks like they should help quite a lot with that ripping problem.  And easy to order, send them your measurements, whatever they are, and they'll sew you a pair of pants.  Pretty easy, huh? They do have a website, which I won't post, but it's pretty easy to figure out....

I buy EMT pants, currently from Sportsman Guide (all out at Christmas). Cargo pocket each side, which I need and like, made from 65/35 cotton/poly and wears well.

In the Duluth catalog there's a "fire-hose canvas" that wears well and breaths OK too.   8) 8)

But what I liked  the most and have been using successfully for a few years are the Sidewinder Suspenders....that  only have 2 clips that attach on the sides ,  the natural place we grab to "hitch up".   Saved me some splits and they do sort of feel like you're wearing a shoulder holster....perfect for the "suck in your gut and tuck in your butt"  crowd.

I wear genuinte military issue BDU pants.  Specifically I wear the desert camo.  They are made of rip stop fabric which is very durable and if you manage to get a rip, it does not want to continue like jeans and other pants.  You can wear out the crotch over time from thighs rubbing together, but they are more durable than jeans I feel.  They are available in winter and summer versions, though I think you can use either year round.  I use the winter.  I've noticed that two different types of ripstop are available - a nylon type that has a checkered pattern in the fabric, and a cotton twill style.  I like the softer cotton twill type. 
   Last winter I found a guy who had bought used ones form returning soldiers on one particular base.  I bought them for $5 a pair.  That was the cheapest I'd ever found and I think you'd be hard pressed to find that price today, but they can be had at low cost.  I found the guy on ebay originally. 
   They are also very loose and comfortable with plenty of pocket space.  They come in x-small, small, medium, large, x-large and I'm not sure but I think xx-large is also made.  They also come as short, regular length, or long.  I bought large regular and large long and hemmed the long ones.  They also have straps on the sides for incremental adjustment of the waist.  You should wear a belt with them.  I use military style web belts that I purchased at gander mountain and another store I forgot which.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!
