What I want to know is this: Are they vanity sizing now or something? What gives? At first my husband told me I ordered the wrong size, so I made him strip them off and compared the tags on the two pairs of pants (and yes, they are both the same Carhartt double front loggers with bachelor's buttons). It wasn't my mistake. I was hoping we got a fluke, where someone in another country mislabeled this one pair of pants when they were being made, but when we got the next pair in the mail it was the same thing--way too long. Either they ruined a whole batch, or they have changed their sizing. I don't know what to think, and I certainly don't have any idea what size I should try to buy now. If I didn't live in such a remote area I would send the pants back, but I don't have time to wait for new ones to arrive, as my husband has worn out his others. He'll have to whack off his new jeans and use those for work, and wear his old ones that fit for going to town, even if they are showing a bit of wear. Sure do wish we lived in an area with stores...
Obviously these aren't made like they used to be made; nothing is. The main thing is that the hardware is cheaper than it used to be. The rivets and buttons seem cheap. However, the denim itself is heavy and appears to be of good quality, and the stitching work is very clean. The over-all quality is certainly on par with Wrangler (probably better, just by way of being a tougher design), definitely better than Levi's, and BY FAR better than Lees (which are garbage these days).
Be aware that the measured waistband on these pants run WAY over the label size, and the inseams run long too. I normally wear 35/32 or 36/32 in Wranglers and Levi's, and then I hem up to a 31" inseam. I ordered 36/32 Loggers, and they measured out at almost 39 inches in the waist, and nearly 34 inches in the inseam. This is sanforized material, so future shrinkage will be minimal - probably 1/2" at most. Also, realize that these sit higher than most jeans, so they are at a slimmer part of your torso (your actual waistline: belly button level, where properly fitting pants actually SHOULD sit). That eats up a size or two as well compared to other jeans that sit lower, on a wide part of your body.I exchanged for 33/30's, and I expect they will fit perfectly, if the amount of undersizing is consistent across all sizes.
Perhaps they upsize them so much because they are intended to be worn over another pair of pants while using suspenders (like half overalls), but be aware of this if you won't be doing that. I would suggest starting by downsizing 3 inches in the waist and 2 inches in the inseam from your Wrangler/Levi's size. Definitely downsize no less than 2 inches in the waist.
With that knowledge in hand, I highly recommend purchasing these jeans.
PS - I got on to these pants watching "The Essential Craftsman" on Youtube - only pants he wears, and he's a man who knows lots about lots!
Buy one size DOWN (drop 2") in your waist.
Feels like heavy wranglers and the double front layers are great for deflecting small pebbles / road hazards.
EDIT: As you break them in they just get more and MORE comfortable.
