Reviews for Dickies Men's Relaxed Fit Straight-Leg Duck Carpenter Jean
People say Dickies is really similar to Carhartt.
Comfortable, durable and dependable
Better than I expected in every way. Well made and perfect fit and very comfortable. I will be buying these now. I am a carhartt fan but my carhartts have been lacking in quality control lately. I want consistency and durability. I’m an in shape guy and my carhartts always split at the crotch before the jeans wear out. My Dickies have outlasted carhartts time and time again
Built tough and terrific value
I love these jeans! This is my third pair and still own the previous two pair. The duck cotton wears much better than most of the designer jeans out there that are pre-stressed or even standard cotton jeans. I've worn these on a construction sight daily and the only sign of fatigue is where I had my cell phone constantly in my pocket. The price is awesome and I find them to be a better value than Carhartts. The material is very stiff and they have a long break-in period. I think the leg is a bit too straight but they are very comfortable and fit well over boots.
These pants are great. Bought them for my husband for Christmas, he loves them. He’s usually a Carhartt guy but these dickies were 1/3 the price with the same heavy duty canvas material. He’s worn them a few times now and loves them. Will check back in at a later date to let everyone know how they’re fairing his abuse.
Good to go
Purchased for my husband for work. He likes them just as much as his carhartt pants, for half the cost.
Bought these to replace Carhartts that no longer fit. Such a good price I can't help but buy more, certainly not as tough as my Carhartts, but much better in the heat. The 36 is a little bigger than expected but still a great pant for 22$ . The duck is thicker than the Carhartt canvas carpenter pants and a good in-between that material and the heavy duck
and the black Dickies' dye seems to hold up much better than their tan version
I'm a carpenter and I trash clothes. I've tried a few different kinds of work pants, and these are the best- compared to Carhartts and the tan Dickies (the fabrics seem to be a little different), these have held up. I've also used them in daily sun while working in the desert outdoors, and the black Dickies' dye seems to hold up much better than their tan version. For the money, you can't touch the quality of these. The only drawback is not being able to get them in odd waist sizes.
Great value, great fit
These fit a lot better and a lot more closely to true than any Carhartts I’ve ever purchased. These are just as sturdy and comfortable. Also a much better value for the money.
Great work pants, even better price
These are a $40 work pant at $20. The price can't be beat. The quality of construction is great. These are a medium/heavy weight pant and hold up well to abuse. I wear a 33" waste in Levis and the 34" Dickies fit well. I got the 34" length and they seem to be slightly longer than other brands of the same size. My next pair will be a 32" length. These are definitely my new work pant. Goodbye to Carhartt and Riggs.
I'm going to be buying another pair.
Excellent product. I bought these as work pants, and they are perfect. 'Relaxed' is indeed the appropriate word for the fit, as they fit well but do not restrict movement. The weave is rugged. sets me in mind of those heavy duty Carhartt overalls. I have a lot of confidence in the overall quality of these pants and would heartily recommend them to anyone interested.
Love the color. Wish they had carpenter pockets on each side loke my carhartts.
... 2 tops for me with work getting tears and bad glue stains
Most jeans only last a month or 2 tops for me with work getting tears and bad glue stains. I've bought several pairs of these jeans and these are by far better than most comparable carhartt jeans I've owned that were more expensive. I've had pairs of these last close to a year which is a long time for pants to last in my line of work.
First time I've ordered Dickies I like them! But dang I've been buying 34-30s for along time and way to big I mean way to big like 6inch to big I'm 5'6. My carhartts are perfect fit. Still great product for the price just work pants.
Great work pants
These pants fit great and are like a slightly lighter version of these Carhartt work pants I used to have. I don't buy that brand any longer however. Triple stitching and nice pockets. Check your sizes and order to fit.
Great sturdy pants
These are great but you need to order one size up from normal. For some reason all these type of canvas products (Carhartt are same) run very small. One size up seems to work fine. I've got 2 pair of these and buy more every time they go on sale. I bought a 36 but normally wear a 34 in jeans.
Paints run small order a larger size
Love these pants as good as Carhartt but at a fraction of the price. Just remember there sizes run small so order a couple sizes larger.
They aren’t consistent
I ordered the same pair same size twice one fit a size to small the other a size too large but other than that they are great pants for the price and hold up a lot better than the carhartt and Schmidt brand ones
Excellent performance. Almost perfect.
Perfect for my purposes, with one or two complaints. The material is excellent, on par with Carhartt. I own a pair of Carhartt double knee work pants for more rugged jobs in colder weather, but I find myself reaching for them less often since purchasing these dickies. These pants are my daily driver for rough carpentry work. They’re durable and fit perfectly for maneuvering in tight spaces. You can be quite rough with these pants and they’ll hold up just fine. My only complaints would be about the pockets and the crotch area. Dickies, would it kill ya to give a guy some breathing room for the boys downstairs? If you have to go from standing to driving a truck around, these things’ll will constrain the jewels a bit. Heads up! Also, the pockets are real tight. They are durable enough to handle heavy 35’ tape measures and such, but if you have big hands like I do, they’re gonna be a bit of a pain to get your hands in and out of. All in all, I can deal with a little discomfort in exchange for performance, so I still give these pants four stars for function and durability.
It’s okay but…
Not as thick as carhartt though
Lighter jean for summer.
I like these jeans they are the lightest weight denim pair I have found so far. The only complaint I have the pockets are not deep enough, my Carhartt's have great pockets, but can't find them in lightweight anymore. Why can't jean makers understand with the hot weather now days lightweight denim is better in summer and medium weight in the winter.
The Dickies Duck Carpenter pant has some advantages and disadvantages compared to Carhartt
I have several pairs of both the Carhartt B11 carpenter pant and these Dickies. Some but not all of the Carhartts are US made which is a significant advantage to me. The Dickies are cut tighter and you probably want to buy one size up from the Carhartts. I use the right side tool pocket for my cell phone and both pants accommodate my 5.2" Moto G5 plus just fine, but you probably won't be able fit anything larger in either pant. An advantage for the Dickies are that the fabric separator in the right side tool pocket extends to the bottom of the pocket, so if you put other things in the outside pocket it won't scratch your cell phone in the inside pocket. The Carthartt pocket separator only extends about half the depth of the pocket. Both brands are nice and durable and stand up to wear well, I would often wear out the pockets in my Levis, but not in Carhartts or Dickies. The opening of the front pockets of the in Dickies is smaller so if you keep keys, a wallet and a pocket knife in the same pocket (like I do) the Carhartt's front pocket is better. The Dickies are cheaper, sometimes half the price of the Carhartts, so both options are worth considering.
Don't think these will take the abuse like Carhartt.
Long enough, little loose upper thigh and butt. Hope the waistband doesn't shrink because the next size would be way too loose.
