I have always bought cargo type shorts to work in and they dont last that long doing this type of work, but I was in Bass pro shops and bought some carhartt B25 work shorts, they are made of the same 12oz. duck that they make the bibs from, they are very tough and will last for a long time, and only $30. I am looking to see if they make a T-shirt out of the 12oz. duck, Does anyone know if they do? That shirt would be great! Anyone looking for a good pair of work shorts that hold up well, go for the carhartts!
