Best Work Pants

Hey guys
what kind of pants do you use?
i just bought a new pair of b11 carhartts and after 1 day there is a hole in the leg. i had heard the quality went down now that theyre made overseas, but i wanted to try for myself, and it seems true.
any reccomendations?
thanks

Try duluthtrading.com... I have a few pair and they have been great, very durable and come in different colors. They also are made for people who work, little features like the crotch gusset do make a difference...Only thing is if you dont like your pants to "fit" if you like a little room buy a size bigger

I have had 0 problems with all of my lightweight Carhart stuff. Maybe you got a bad batch?
