Loose Fit Pants
« on: January 09, 2020, 10:26:05 PM »
My go to loose fit pants are double knee Dickies or Ben Davis pants if I'm feeling spendy, what about you guys?

I've been eying a pair of Carhartt B159s and was wondering if the fit was comparable

I've been feeling loose fit pants lately too. Only got Volcom Modown jeans and Volcom VSM Gritter chinos. Both I really like. Volcom pants always fit me good and have good stretch. Even with the looser fit I feel like stretch is essential. I'm open for suggestions though as I look like a total Volcom gimp cuz I have so much Volcom gear.  :-X

Possibilities are everywhere, search and enjoy.

someone in here suggested polar surf pants as breezy for summer and now I love em. I think I got a size down from what Iíd usually get?

Artform Cargos. I love them and I buy XL. The pants are made by roth co and other brands use these pants too. No Comply skate shop has these pants also but they price them at $56 and artform prices them at $44
I bought a pair from No comply because they had a color artform doesnít sell.
They still have a 30% off sale going on right now too.

If you have a Nordstrom Rack near you, check it out. They usually have Volcom chinos in stock. They're loose, but not baggy. And they're like $25. Ended up nabbing 5 pairs one day because they've become my daily pants.

I don't consider WIP nice, just sort of expensive. I typically keep a rotation so after I wear something for a while and it fades or gets stains or whatever I'll shift it over to the skate pile and buy a replacement.

I'm intrigued by WIP but I live in a small city so I never get to see the stuff in person. I do love regular old carhartt clothing though. Is the sizing the same? I wear an XL in other brand t shirts but somehow the Carhartt M 100% cotton pocket t shirt is perfect on me.

Do they taper at all or are they a straight leg loose fit?

I run Carhartt pants every day at work so here's a short review of the two types of loose ones in my rotation.

http://www.carhartt.com/products/carhartt-pants/Washed-Twill-Dungaree---Relaxed-Fit-B324



The B324 is a nice mix between relaxed and loose fit and is the most durable pant I have ever owned.  The photo on the Carhartt website is not accurate to actual fit so I embedded the second image that is closer to reality.  These are kind of the perfect medium fit that can look good with cup or vulc soled shoes and whatever top you want to do.  The olive is my favorite color followed by the khaki.  The black fades quite a bit.  Even working construction these will last me 3-4 years a pair.

http://www.carhartt.com/products/carhartt-pants/Carhartt-Force-Tappen-Cargo-Pant-101148

The Force Cargo is a great hot weather pant and something that looks different from everyone else's BDU ripoffs.  The seams are kind of busy but not as pronounced as in the picture.  If you skate in the summer they are the coolest and quickest drying pants I have ever found.  They are lifesavers when working on roofs or concrete pads in hot weather.  The fit is pretty baggy but not ridiculous and the pockets and tabs stay intact instead of flopping out after three washes.

A couple of fit tips if you're ordering instead of buying in person.  I always add +1 inch to waist size on Carhartt compared to any other pant and since they need to fit over my boots I add +2 inches to inseam.  They will high water on you over time if you do not.  Cricketclub is right about their shirt sizing being all over the place.  I usually order a size down from normal and it's still a little big.  In person buying is best and Boot Barn, Sportsmans Warehouse, Bass Pro, etc. will almost always have them in stock and sometimes run really good sales. 

Carhartt does cost more than some other brands but in my experience they last much longer and when I move it from the "work" to "skate" stack they still look good.

Levi's 550. Relaxed and tapered. In your regular size they're still pretty baggy, but I went a size up to the 34x29 and they're real nice and loose.

Not as durable as dickies/carhartts probably but really durable for how soft and lightweight they are. Had a pair for over 2 years, only one tiny rip on the side. Granted I don't send it and eat shit on rough asphalt but still

i literally just got them this week but they feel a bit more sturdier than they look, not overly thick like dickies/carhartt but thicker than sweatpants and more dense. soft and comfy

I've never tried the b159's but have loved several pairs of b151's (I think the main difference is material and utility pockets?). Mine fit loose all over and are super tough.

Has anyone tried the Ben Davis Gorilla Cut?

550s are great. I've been looking for the perfect pair of jeans for years after getting sick of wearing dickies for so long. Went out on a whim and bought some 550s on ebay just last week. They fit me perfectly.

550 Levis got the feeling back for me to. I was getting 559 which are a bit baggier fit but they are no longer available in Canada so 550 will have to do. The difference is a bit heavier / tougher denim and a tad less baggy.
