+1 for the carhart carpenter pants.  i just lost my last pair when 
the ER nurses cut them off me a few weeks ago.  I was stupid: fell 12 
feet and broke my pelvis is a few places.  I bought a few pairs on 
sale from don't remember where but they are a buy once cry once kind 
of price.  but i'll be buying them again.

They lasted 2-3 years for me - garage stuff, welding, digging 
trenches, logging, construction, etc...  - not all day every day use, 
say, maybe 25-30 hours per week - but they hold up really well.  I 
cut the bottom hem off since I use them in the woods and they don't 
fall apart like other jeans do.  And I have the same problem with the 
crotch wearing out on jeans, but these don't have that problem..
