Old stand by,
This review is from: Carhartt Men's Washed Duck Work Dungaree Utility Pant (Apparel)
I've been buying these pants for 20 years and I wear them almost every day. They last a long time and are the best to work in. However, I have two problems with them: They are now no longer made in the USA but instead in Central America sweatshops. AND secondly, despite the previous statement they continue to go up in price. In fact they are about 30% more than a year ago when all production seems to have moved. I will say the pants otherwise seem the same, but it's a bit much that Carhartt advertisements all feature "the American working man" but then make their products in Honduras and Mexico.

are you able to find this style and material pants made domestically? I bought a pair of these and like them but if there is a good American made version I would prefer it

I know it's a late comment, but Carhartt still makes a handful of items domestically. You can Google "Carhartt made in USA" and get the link to their webpage of US-made items.

Racist? Really? Made in America= American made products= American Jobs... Nothing racist about that.
Sweatshops aren't a good thing, you get that, right? SMH

These pants are great, they work in any business or social setting. I bought it together with this Leather Business Card Holder that matches really well. Together it looks very professional!
