Their definition of loose fit must have changed over the past couple years. I haven't bought new Carhartt jeans for a couple years, but my old jeans are starting to wear out. So I ordered a couple new pairs of loose fit jeans last week and they don't fit anything like my old pairs. Suppose to be loose in the seat and thighs but boy these new jeans are snug! I double checked the tags and stickers to make sure they sent the right ones, and no I haven't gained any weight as my old jeans still fit fine. Anyone else noticed this?

Carhart's quality control on "standard size" is terrible. I'll never buy a pair without trying them on. They vary quite a bit in both waist and length. Considering what they ask for them....They come from a variety of foreign factories.

I very rarely buy any clothing without trying it on first, I've noticed most manufacturers vary on their sizes. Same size shirt could be a medium, large or XL depending on who made it. Never noticed it with Carhartt jeans until now.

Maybe your old jeans stretched over the years.

Sometimes as we get older we may not gain weight it just moves.

Company I get my t-shirts from (4XT) moved production from Pakistan to China. The shirts shrank and got way thinner at the same time. Think they charge any less than before? I've got 2-yr-old shirts from them that are thicker than the new ones.

I find that where something is made determines how it fits. South Africa, Dominican Republic, Pakistan, they fit well. Most places in southeast Asia, forget it, they are too small.

Notice how lousy clothing is getting overall? I can't find a decent pair of socks in McCook. They are about half as thick as they were six months ago. Don't get me started on underwear, either.

I have only had one pair of Carhartt jeans, got them a couple of years ago for cutting wood in the winter. Made in Mexico, I'm not impressed, they seem to be wearing out quite fast.

Nothing is the same anymore. I agree on socks, just not the same. Wear them a few times and they are full of holes, same brand as before. Several years ago I bought a different brand of Tall T-shirts. Wore them and washed them, and they did not shrink much and were still long enough to tuck in good. Went back and got some more. Completely different, made for the younger generation, they left my belly showing. I realize we are in a throw-away generation, but would like to at least get my money's worth before I toss it.

I have been buying their coveralls for a few years. Each time they have a different fit.Wear out quicker than they should.

We switched to Dickies brand at work, relaxed fit, they still fit like hiphuggers.
The best jeans I have found for fit and wear are Wrangler "Rugged Wear" Just be ready to pay dearly for them but I get 4/5 years out of a pair.

What Rich Iowa said.

Im a computer geek, work in an office, business casual.
Tape measure says Im 34 x 31 (try finding a 31 long off the rack).
Pants I buy can be 30 x 32 on up to 36 x 32, depending on the mfg.

You're better off buying the $10.00 "Blue Mtn." jeans at TSC. Made in the same places as Carhart, Lee, Wranglers and they fit baggy.

I'm with Bret on this
after trying different brands of jeans for the shop and them not
even making it to the first washing, I just buy $10 ones now.
a size too big and wear them right over some sweatpants
or something for warmth and cushioning.
