Not Your Fathers Carhartt

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anonymous from Missouri on Friday, December 25, 2015
For some reason I was expecting a more traditional jean. I think "1889 Series" planted the notion in my head and it stuck. These are the most nontraditional Carhartts I've ever owned. These are Carhartt's stab at a FASHION JEAN.
I like the cut except the rise. They fit my butt and thighs better than almost any other jean I've ever worn. The rise is just too low for my body type. The waist band hits above the hip but well below the waist. If I was 20 years younger and or 20 pounds lighter I'd think 'perfect', but with my body type all I manage to think is, "am I showing butt crack?"
The 'dark stain' wash, the triple stitched inseam and the rear pockets are all 'just a toe in the water' half hearted attempts to make a fashion jean, as far as I can tell. Which surprises me. Usually when Carhartt does something they do it full tilt, take no prisoners. These seem tentative, like a frightened rabbit, the old "Lets run this up the flag pole and see who salutes".
All that being said, my wife tells me that these look better on me than any other jeans I own. Go figure!
