Has Quality Declined?

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Keith from Berlin from Massachusetts on Tuesday, December 29, 2015
I have been ordering the same Carhartt overalls (seconds) for a few years, now, and I have always been happy with the quality of the Carhartt product. This time out, however, the fabric seemed a little thinner, less robust. The chest pockets (plural) were missing a seam between them and had become chest pocket (singular). Not a big deal, except that I keep smaller tools in those pockets, and the tools kept dropping to the bottom of the larger space (I eventually sewed a seam between them, replacing the missing one).

I *will* order these again, and I *would* recommend them to fellow tradesmen, but if the quality slips any more, i will switch to another brand. This may sound crotchety and old-fashioned, but Carhartt made better-quality clothes before the trendy hipsters discovered them. I'd hate to think I was starting to pay for the [...] label.
