Seen it advertised and came up on some hunts I did last year when I was looking for pants that looked half decent she didn’t blow out with all the manual labor shit I’m always having to do out here. Settled on some other stuff from the locals sports store that looked okay and was on sale called Kuhl. Stupid name, but been pounding the shot out of it and it’s fairly rugged. Also comfortable so east to sit all day at the computer in then or wearing to go pound fence posts and string up wire. They look pretty low key and fit well, so was a worthwhile purchase that I’d make again. Especially if I can find them on super sale again.

I tried a pair of Duluth "Firehose" bibs, they are stretchy and I have mixed feelings about that, I think it is for fat people but I bought them cause I was getting too fat. I will not buy another pair but am reasonably happy with the socks and underwear I got while at the store. They are always running specials so 25 percent off is easy and they run a replacement type warranty-I know a guy who abuses it and keeps getting new pants. Whatever, I would prefer something that lasts and or is worth repairing.

 

I go pretty deep on workwear but do not have the enthusiasm at the moment to really get into it.

 

Here are some places I shop, patagonia also has a new workwear line with some pants I am trying to talk myself into.

Welp that sucks to hear about Duluth but confirms the other reviews I was reading. @Fist 666

im familiar with Kuhl from climbing. Their pants can withstand rubbing against rock. I’ve never owned any are they very stiff? If you like them another brand you might like is Bulletprufe @misteraven

Does anybody have any recomendations for durable denim? Should hopefully withstand rubbing ladders and concrete for longer than a week before blowing to pieces. 

I've got a pair of levis that are like 4x the weight of the rest of my levis, I don't remember where I got them, but their tag is the same as all my other 505s even though they are clearly different. If anybody knows the difference I would recommend them--I've abused the fuck out of them and I've had them for probably 10 years of casual wear.

I have some Japanese denim like that. First year I wore them I literally would rub off skin off my legs until they bled. Now they just rub off the hair and leave bald spots on my legs.

I can't imagine the flack you would catch on a construction site for wearing patagucci pants. Dude's I work with who have nice haircuts catch enough bullshit from the hillbillies. Go forth and report back once you've talked yourself into them, @morton

Just ordered a pair of the pants and overalls, they are on sale. I will update, speaking of updates, where ya been Fist, I have not checked your profile or anything creepy like that but seems like you have been silent lately.

I purchased a pair of Carhart pants today. Twenty years ago their tags said "Made with pride in the USA by Union Garment Workers" now they are made in China and the tag says "BUILT TO SERVE AND PROTECT HARDWORKING PEOPLE" which I believe translates into "I eat a lot of dicks" but I bought them anyway.

Follow up on the pants, which are the same as posted above by glorydays, the phone pocket is not well engineered and will not stop a phone from falling out the way that the Kuhl pocket does, there is a retarded zippered pocket inside the back right pocket which I would never use and rubs up against your hand if you reach into the back pocket, so it is like a negative two pocket. The pants fit well enough, I like that the double knee goes up high like on logger pants and I like the look and feel overall but all and all I think I am probably done with Carhartt. 

 

I am kind of a lazy ass so they might not want my business anyway.

I've switched pants from Carhartt to Ariat. More comfortable to start and I'm getting more life out of them, too. More street cred with the politically minded white trash 'round these parts, too.
