    Why don’t you ever make a slim fitting seat and thinh in a shorter inseam length ? Believe it or not…there are men out here who are slim and short who need jeans that fit !! I am disappointed I could not find any on your site, that will fit my guy. He needs a slim fitting seat and thing, with a straight leg, a waist at normal or slightly lower height. And it has to be in a size 32 waist, with a 28 inseam. You got any of these somewhere ???

      Unfortunately, Carhartt has discontinued a lot of their smaller sizes and they no longer make any traditional fit jeans in a size 32Wx28L. The closest thing we have to what you are looking for is the B17. This is the slimmest fitted jean available in that size.

    A few years ago I wrote to you complaining about your fitting guide and jean description and you still have not fixed it. Some of the jeans state below the waist or slightly below the waste and the fitting guide contradicts that. For example, your #B18 is a traditional fit and the description says it fits “at the waist” but your fitting guide says a traditional fit sits “slightly below the waist”. Rather than ordering from you and having to return them (like last time), I’m going to another source. Get it right Carhartt!!!!!!!!

      We’re sorry for the misunderstanding with our fit guide. While most of the traditional fit jeans do so sit slightly below the waist, we do also state that a classic rise is available in select styles, such as the B18’s. Please be sure to read the product details for each item as the rise will be stated there as well.
