• To tell the rise I recommend looking at Carhartt's size chart as it explains what style is which cut:|http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SizeChartView?catalogId=10101&storeId=10051&langId=-1&chartImage=Mens_Pants.jpg|The work pants have the word work in the description and the regular jeans are just normal. Carhartt in general is tougher. Generally work pants are made of a tougher cotton rather than just 100% cotton. I hope this helps.
