lots of them fit as well , few hold up as long

truth though, their quality has gone down in the last 10-15 years
Most notably the zippers
20 years ago I never had a zipper fail
.
I've worn the exact same style Carhart jacket for 30 years .
The last two I've worn out both had zipper fails ...and are clearly not as heavy or heavy duty as 20 years ago

Well Larr....you ARE getting up in years ....and an older prostate gets more use ....thus the zipper wear would go up expeditiously as well......

Wrong! Duluth Trading Company has the toughest clothes. Ask me how I know. Their fire-hose pants hold up way better than the thin carhartt. My firehose pants have lasted me 7 years! I have never been able to get that out of any pants. I did have a Carhartt jacket that I liked. I was working on my excavator and spilled diesel all over myself. That damn jacked smelled like diesel for over a year.

I sometimes wear carhartt Jean's. Lately I've been getting "prison blues" which are sold locally and made by inmates in Oregon state penitentiaries. They are cheaper than carhartts and last longer. They are very heavy, but it's cold here in the pnw. Plus I like the idea of prisoners contributing work to society. Not to derail the thread.

They might fit me :)

Lost 10 lbs so far. I fell off the wagon yesterday and stopped in the Chico Wendy's for a baconator. I was still 700 calories under my allotment for the day.

A baconator is just shy of a 1000 calories on its own...exactly how many calories are alloted


edit: nm I was looking at the double

40/32 for the last 20 years or so

they get snug in winter when it's Little Debbies slathered with Jif and donut snacks in the evening
not as tight in summer when it's ice cream and frozen Kool Pops

"relaxed" fit gets me thru the winter ....:lol:
