Reviewer: Dack, Location: San Jose, CA, Occupation: tradesman Why would anyone buy Carhardts??? Because they're Carhardts and nothing lasts longer or holds up to more abuse. If you're a pro these are what you want to wear.
Reviewer: 0nemoremike, Location: California, Occupation: Carpenter BRING BACK CARHARTT BROWN B25! The B25 is probably the best, longest last shorts ever made.
So much so, that in Carhartt Brown they are as iconic as the iPod with white ear buds.
I wear only 2 colors of work pants/shorts Blue and Brown, just not "metro" enough for green or grey.
The stonewashed/weathered jobbies don't fit the same and wear/age funny.
Alas, one's only option now is to buy brown pants and cut them down.
