Still wishing for the old jeans...
I was searching for a way out of the skinny stretch faded and torn world that women's jeans seems to have become. Back in the '90's, I wore Carhartt exclusively. The Blaine Original is the closest I seem to be able to get to actual heavy weight denim. I've washed them in warm water twice and have achieved the right length but the body of the jeans is still a half size too large. I bought a size 6 short. I tried a 4 short and couldn't close the zipper... surely you guys could make a size in between?It would also be nice to make my own wear marks in the denim... the fades and whiskers are unnecessary. Thanks for the chance to vent a little. ;0)

First the positive: I love the full front pockets, large coin pocket, and full rear patch pockets. Lots of belt loops too. The negative: For some reason Carhart offers jeans in a Short inseam that are not short. Short usually means a 27 or 28 inch inseam. TEven though the chart says they are supposed to be 29 - 30 inches these are more along the lines of 32 inches long. I especially wish Carhart would make a denim jean that is 100% denim. These jeans are thin and stretchy due to the Spandex. They aren't half as warm in cold weather. Time will tell if the thinner denim will hold up to the riggers of hiking, bucking hay, kneeling, etc.

I've looked high and low for a good quality jean that moves with you, can handle the daily wear and tear of an abusive work environment, and lasts longer than a month or two. This is the jean! I have never been more impressed and after trying multiple different brands and types of jeans I was about ready to give up. As a
curvy female jean shopping is the worst, but the waistband doesn't gap and their are extra belt loops to help support the jean if you wear a belt. The only thing is I feel they run small compared to all other jeans I have tried, so if you are a curvy gal maybe consider ordering up a size or two.

Jeans like they used to make them!
Thanks so much, Carhartt, for making not-jegging jeans that look good! Just normal, no nonsense jeans that a girl can squat in without bursting a blood vessel. And! They don't get all saggy and fall down after a few hours.
I did almost return them for a bigger size initially, because the waist was a tiny bit snug, But I wore them around the house for a few hours and now they are perfect.
I can't comment on the durability, but at least they didn't come with holes in them (like most of the other jeans on offer these days).
Please don't stop making these. I think they may be the last non-skinny jeans out there!
