  • “What kind of zipper does it have? Any inside pocket(s) near the waist? Do any of the back/side pockets close with snap,button, or hook/loop fastener? How heavy are these shorts (weight)? Would they shrink much after several washings? What does the Moss color approximate in real life?. I don't think my computer display renders it accurately. The color differs in each view.”
    Asked by 3mXBbol3 from Unknown on 1/22/2011 12:00:00 AM
    • These have just a regular zipper fly. There are not any pockets near the waist, just regular front hand pockets. There are not any pockets that have any sort of closure. Made of 8.5-ounce, 100% ring-spun cotton canvas, it sits slightly below the natural waist, has multiple tool and utility pockets and a left leg hammer loop. In my opinion Moss looks like a greyish/greenish olive color.

    • Brass zippers, no buttons or Velcro on pockets, and no "inside pockets". These are cotton duck work pants, heavier weight than dress slacks or shorts. Most likely used in the trades, ie carpenters, plumbers and such. These do have a Hammer loop on one leg. Carharts, like cotton jeans can shrink some, depends on your laundry practice. i.e.- if my wife likes them, she will do her best to reduce the size with high heat drying. But I've had little problem if care directions are followed.

    • Normal zipper. No inside pocket. No flaps/closure on back pockets. Has pockets on both side but they are oddly designed. There is a velcro flap pocket on each side. On the outside of the side pocket on one side are slots for like pencils or pens, the other side a diagonal pocket with velcro close. No idea what I will put in that pocket, either outer pocket for that matter. Funky brown - green color. Not much shrinkage.

About Carhartt

If you're looking for durable, comfortable clothing and outerwear, few other brands can compete with Carhartt. Although the venerable Carhartt clothing company has become one of the most respected names in American work wear today, the brand comes from humble roots. Founded in 1889, the family-owned business started out in Detroit, Michigan with just two sewing machines and five employees. During The First World War, the company made uniforms for the US military and also manufactured work clothing for the Navy during WWII. Today, Carhartt clothing is still known for robust fabrics, top-notch construction and a great fit. From rugged Carhartt jackets and coveralls to jeans and shirts, this is one brand you can trust to deliver the real deal -- every time.
