  • carhartt jeans

    The quality of the jeans has gone to ****. I bought 4 pairs 4 months ago. And their all ripped up with holes in the crotch area and the stitching coming apart. What's a good other brand to buy . Im a field welder so in in all types of positions and like the b01 style carhartt was putting out. For the cost im expecting better quality

    I just go to walmart and get wrangler jeans for under 10 bucks a pair. they last for about 7 months then I go get a few more.sometimes they will last a year depending on what jobs I do..i can't see paying 30 40 bucks for something that's gonna get burned up anyways. got a good deal on my shirts too this guy went out of busness and had something like 1000+ shirts stacked in his house. I got them for 20 bucks a peice cash. the tag says Cajun on them they are hard green and the thickest shirts I ever wore.

          I am a professional welder myself (shipbuilding...meaning contorted welding 99% of the time) and I just get Walmart ****ies brand. I can go to the company store and buy Carhartt but why? The only thing that makes them flame retardant is starch and you can do that yourself. The reverse of that too of course, is the more you wash them without starch, the less flame retardant the Carhartt gets so it is a moot point. I can buy a pair at Walmart for $23.93, or 3 pairs to one pair of Carhartts.

          Do Carhartts really last three times as long? That is really the question.

              I like Arbor wear. They make quality appears at a price I can afford and last way longer than my old carharts .

                I'd hope the $300 jeans include a left handed stranger from one of those hot female models. about 14 aggressive tugs would do just fine.

                        +1. Wranglers from WM or on sale at KMart are the best in my book.

                          Just regular machinist style 100% COTTON denim with top pencil pocket..

                          wally world has a pretty good selection...

                          http://www.walmart.com/search/?query=denim%20apron

                          HF has decent quality ones cheap

                          http://www.harborfreight.com/denim-apron-32306.html

                          I treat them with Borax for flame retard.. because I wear them while I TIG

                          "For a make-it yourself fire retardant mixture, mix 7 oz. Borax, 3 oz. boric acid, and 2 qts. warm water. Stir to dissolve completely. Either dip the fabric in the mixture or spray on to thoroughly saturate the material until it drips. This product will wash right out without damage to the fabrics so if you have to use a bedsheet for stage curtains, it won't damage them for at home use. "

                          Remember: no Synthetics...or poly blends.. they can melt to your skin and flame.. lots of DIY retardant recipes online

                            from what I looked up on boric acid its poisonous and can be absorbed into the skin. .so if you put this mixture on your cloths and it dries your probably not at risk but if you sweat or the clothes become wet then the boric acid will get onto and into the skin.

                              BTW... you might note that I treat my aprons...and NOT my jeans or underwear...
                              Common sense should rule.....Just don't eat it...

                              Boric acid can be used as an antiseptic for minor burns or cuts and is sometimes used in dressings or salves. Boric acid is applied in a very dilute solution as an eye wash. Dilute boric acid can be used as a vaginal douche to treat bacterial vaginosis due to excessive alkalinity,[21] as well as candidiasis due to non-albicans candida.[22] As an antibacterial compound, boric acid can also be used as an acne treatment. It is also used as prevention of athlete's foot, by inserting powder in the socks or stockings, and in alcohol solution can be used to treat some kinds of otitis externa (ear infection) in both humans and animals. The preservative in urine sample bottles in the UK is boric acid.

                              Boric acid solutions used as an eye wash or on abraded skin are known to be toxic, particularly to infants, especially after repeated use; this is because of its slow elimination rate.[23]
