+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..
