Carhartt recently sent over a pair of boy’s washed denim dungaree pants for Mr. 5 to put to the test — they’re bringing their knowledge of rugged workwear over to clothes that kids can play hard in. Well, he’s just the kid to test that out, trust me! We’re all too familiar with the hole-in-the-knee raggedy hems scenario here, because Mr. 5 never, and I mean never, stops moving.
He even tested them out upside-down for us…
And the upside-down halfway splits are a particular favorite… (excuse the cluttered background — boy also is not keen on putting toys away )
These are a nice, rugged pair of jeans. I’ve been buying boys jeans for a while, although Mr. 10 was never quite as hard on his! — and you get to the point where you can tell if they’re going to last. I am pretty sure Mr. 5 will outgrow this pair before wearing them out.
(And no, he doesn’t even sit still to play video games — he was all over this chair in every position possible!)
These Carhartt boy’s jeans are also adjustable-waist, which is a huge plus. I had to cinch these in quite a bit, because when you move that much, you also stay pretty skinny!
The other thing I liked was the lack of difficult buttons or snaps — these are easy for little fingers to latch.
The fine print
I received a pair of jeans from Carhartt for purposes of this review. All opinions in this post, however, are my own.
