My husband likes these because of the shorter inseam. He said you would never know they are irregulars, they fit just like the full-price "firsts" he has.

  • “What kind of zipper does it have? Any inside pocket(s) near the waist? Do any of the side/back pockets close with snap,button, or hook/loop fastener? How much do the shorts weigh? Any shrinkage after several washings? Is there a hammer loop? Do they wrinkle after washing and drying needing to be ironed?”

    • 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. The shorts weigh 7.5 oz. They may shrink slightly on high heat. They are cotton so they may have some wrinkles, but not enough in my opinion to need ironing.

    • Hello NN: I just got a pair of these. They are in the laundry pile now for their first washing, so I can't tell you anything about their behavior after several washings. The pockets are ample but none has any kind of closing device (i.e. buttons, snaps, velcro). (There are no inside pockets but two exterior back pockets.) There are two front, slash pockets, and a watch pocket on the right front, at the waist, above the slash pocket There is a hammer loop on left leg. There is also a folding ruler pocket on each leg, that works for a cell phone as well. The weight is medium. They are comfortable in the heat. Fabric is durable for some rough outside work. Zipper is heavy duty brass, although it seems a little short. I am happy with these shorts. I hope this helps.

    • YKK brass zipper. By inside pocket, do you mean hidden? No hidden pockets. The two rear and left lower are "patch" pockets. They are externally sewn on. The two front pockets, coin pocket, and right lower pocket are pockets like you'd find on any 'ol pair of jeans. That is, there is a white cotton pocket inside the material. None of the pockets have a security closure device. I've washed them once and no shrinkage so far. One hammer loop on the left leg. ...I don't buy things that require ironing. ...I may wear things a little wrinkled, but not overly so.

    • YKK Zipper, Small side pockets for a knife or rule, No fasteners/snaps for pockets. Medium weight great for summer. Washed 5 or 6 times with no shrinkage. There is a hammer loop ,but it was on the left hand side. They do not wrinkle that bad, I wear them for handyman work so I do not need them to have a pressed look.

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.
