These are the best carpenter jeans available. They are very durable, as I have had a pair for 5 years, and they get better with age. I just bought three more pairs because they are so good. The 14 oz. denim is thick and strong, but the jeans are very comfortable. The way Dickies has styled them, they are loose enough to be comfortable even in warm weather. The side pocket is so big, that it can hold an iPhone 6 plus, and that is the only carpenter pants I found that can do this. Dickies carpenter jeans are the way to go if you have the large smart phones since the phones are too big to put in any jeans front pocket. When I bought a pair 5 years ago, I wasn't even thinking about a pocket for a large smart phone, I just liked the comfort of carpenter jeans, and I was so happily surprised when the iPhone 6 plus fit in the Dickies 14 oz. side pocket as if it was designed for it. Thank you Dickies for making the best carpenter jeans you can buy, and at the best price as well.
