Default Work Jeans/Pants

I have been having a hell of a time with my work jeans lasting any length of time. It seams () that they wear out really quick on me by the back pockets where the rivets are and in the crotch area. I have tried everything from Levis to Old navy and lately I have been getting Urban Pipeline from Kohls because they were cheap and I didn't mind abusing them.

I don't really do much "work" in them as I am a conductor/swithcman for the RR. I saw a commercial last night that made me look into getting these.

http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/m...ose/92204.aspx

Anyone have any experience with these pants or the company itself? I don't mind spending the money on them if they actually last me a while. I have tried on some Carharrt jeans/pants in the past but they looked like Mom jeans and were really an awkward fit on me.

I have thought about buying some buckle jeans just for the simple fact that they are all guaranteed/warrantied for the life of the jean.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

No idea. I just get wal-mart jeans and use them for a few months. When I work outside they'll inevitably get torn up from barbed wire/thorns so I just go cheap.

I had luck with Carhart when I worked construction in college but, like you said, they fit my skinny ass like shit. I didn't care though, they were indestructible and I wasn't exactly looking to spit game covered in drywall dust and sweat.

Tractor supply had a sale last year and I bought 10 pairs of jeans for $10ea. They were cheap and have been lasting for quite awhile.

While on the subject. Anyone got a source for some good, heavy weight, boot cut jeans? Not the fatty mc fatterson relaxed fit or hipster nuthugger, just your regular boot cut jean. I rock boots on the bike and cant do baggy.

I used to rock the Levi 527 but over time the fit got more skinny jean and the fabric got thinner.

Work makes me wear dickies in khaki color. Doesn't make sense in a dirty environment, but whatever. When I run out of those, I have carhartt carpenter jeans.

Duluth are good to go. they replaced two pairs no questions. I have the loggers the only issue I had was how heavy they are wish I could wear them year around but they are to hot so they only come out in the winter months.

Dickies. I don't know about their pants, but I have a couple pairs of their shorts that I absolutely ABUSE. I have used them as swim trunks for entire seasons, worked on cars, worked outside, and just general wear and tear. one of the pairs is now about 6 years old, and everything has held up 100%. They look new.

i wear american eagle jeans to work everyday. they aren't the cheapest option out there, but i really like them. they used to rip a lot at the seam a few years ago, but the last few pairs i bought have held up well. i only buy jeans once a year.

during winter, I wear carhart overalls, actually put some tears in them this year cutting firewood...
I have had a pair of their jeans before, and had good results with them. I usually wear lee jeans, or the walmart "faded glory" as I know they don't last long, but are pretty cheap...

I have several items from duluth and they've been outstanding and shown about 0 signs of wear despite what I do while wearing their products.

I have been on the fence about DTC too. They have some decent stuff and if it lasts, it would be worth it. My only issue is that I like to try stuff on before I order as a lot of brands fit very different.

How do duluths fit? I hate the idea of buying pants over the internet since I have a hard enough time doing it in person... I can try on ten pairs of pants to find one that fits decent, and the difference in sizes across brands is staggering. I can barely button a 40 in dickies but a 36 in levis would snap up just as easy if my legs would fit. Not to mention I usually have to go up 2-4 inches extra in the waste to fit my thighs in and cinch the waist up unless I go with baggy fit jeans which look like they belong on a high schooler.

I have 3 pair of the Duluth Trading Co. Firehouse Pants. Freaking love them. I wear them a lot during the winter. Cutting firewood, working on my car, hunting, camping, etc. I've really put them through some rough use, and they have held up amazingly well. Fit is different than say, jeans. They're a bit looser fitting in the leg, and the sizes are just a tad off. I typically wear a 30x30 in jeans/slacks/etc. I wear a 32x32 in these. I would HIGHLY recommend these to anyone needing hard use clothing.

They look like a thicker material than most pants. Would wearing these in the summer months be out of the question? Not that I'm getting much breathe-ability out of jeans, but would hate it to be worse.

Thinking of going with the Firehose pants and then getting a fleece/flannel lined pair for winter as I HATE wearing my bibs.

Might try some Round House jeans or bibs. They are American made and hold up really well. I have a couple pairs of bibs and besides being stained, are in still like new condition, very heavy material. I am a pipefitter so they definitely aren't babied. E. Edwards carries them.

They're much thicker than normal pants. Deer hunting this year I wore polypropylene long johns, fleece pants, and the DTC pants all season, down to around 0 degrees. I've worn them in the summer and they're way too hot if you're doing any sort of activity or if it's above 70-75.

dickies for the summer, lately I have been wearing a set of buckle jeans at work, so far holding up better then the target jeans and shit, and they are comfortable, and they actually fit me.

Ordered 2 pair of these in brown and used a 15% off coupon that I found online plus free shipping for $101.

http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/m...ose/86125.aspx

I was going to get the work pants with the pockets on the side, but I really wouldn't use the pockets so I decided on the "jeans". I will use these until it gets hot out and then I'm going to buy a couple pair of the Dry On The Fly pants. And for winter I will purchase 1 or 2 of the fleece/flannel fire hose pants. With that many pants in rotation, they should last me a LONG time. Now all I hope is that they fit right in the first shot so I don't have to play the exchange game.
