High quality jeans

Verified Buyer Reviewed by -DrEAM from Los Angeles area on Saturday, March 5, 2016
This is a high quality pair of jeans -- soft enough to be comfortable when wearing and tough enough for working outdoors. Here are a few mostly positive impressions:
--The bit of stretch is great throughout and keeps the material from binding.
--The stretch is not visible so the jeans so not look different than all denim jeans.
--Carhartt promotes these as sitting at the waist, but they sit below the waist like most other jeans. They have a short to moderate rise which doesn't allow a roomy fit in the crotch area. Ideally, this model of jeans would allow a bit more movement room in that area and have a longer rise to allow the jeans to actually sit at the waist and not cramp and pinch the gear.
--The color is a somewhat darker/dirty blue which I did not think that I would like. However, I am liking it more with use.
--There is a handy cell pocket on the right leg. My iPhone plus sticks out of the top about 1.5 inches. This is a great convenience and works quite well.
--There is a long and slender pocket along the left leg, too. It is approx one inch wide and I can't figure out what it might be intended to hold. Anyway, it doesn't detract from the look and maybe I will carry a pen there when working outside.
--Front slash pockets are rather narrow at the top, but otherwise about the same as other jeans. No innovation here.
--Rear pockets as expected.
--Some doubling of material at the rear of the bottom hems. Adds to rugged looks and may help with wear.
--Advertised as relaxed fit and they are without looking sloppy. Roomy in leg, thigh, and seat. A big miss (two actually) was not adding a longer rise and not relaxing the crotch. It would be great if these jeans could fit more like a favorite pair of chinos.
All told, high quality and very close to being a favorite.
