I have worn the Carhartt Detroit work jacket for many years. They be tough stuff. I gave the Carhartt twill jeans a try because the poly/cotton mix is a better choice than cotton if you work outdoors in wet conditions. I like the twill jeans enough to give this twill version of the Detroit jacket a go. The only serious drawback is the pocket design isn't the best choice for excluding water. Nonetheless, I'm expecting this jacket to be as great as the Twill pants. Unfortunately, the "seconds" jacket I was sent has a twist in the sleeve caused by mis-sewing the sleeve and I am currently waiting for STP to replace the jacket .... ahem! One thing to watch out for is Carhartt or STP is hawking a "washed twill" version of jeans that isn't the poly/cotton mix, so don't get horn-swaggled by those like I did. They are just cotton.
