Go ahead and order one pair of the next bigger size if you are worried about the fit. They do fit a tiny bit more snug after washing them a few times.
But try only one out before you stock up, because you are going to have these around for a while (IE: they don't wear out very fast), so they may as well fit comfortably.
Also, years ago, I had previously purchased identical heavy duty work dungarees at Blains Farm and Fleet in Wisconsin which were branded under the name Lakin and McKey Trading Company (Manufactured by Key Industries) and those had outlasted some Carhart heavy canvas work pants that I also had been using at the same time.
Sadly, Blains doesn't carry them any more. But happily, I found these on Amazon.
These new Key Apparel dungarees are the same style, construction (triple stitched seams and rivets, and the double layered knees) and material as those that I had been wearing for years. I compared them with one of my old pair, side by side, and they are identical, right down to the weave of the canvas fabric. Except for the brand name tags, that is.
In Carhart's defense, their pants only had the standard single layer of fabric on the knees. They were still some fine work pants that lasted a good while, but the double layer of canvas covering the knees on the Key dungarees makes a huge difference.
The only constructive criticism that I can offer about these is that I wish the doubled layer of duck canvas that covers the knees would also extend another 4 or 5 inches up the front of the leg. The place where I finally do wear these out is about 2 inches above the spot where the double layer stops.
Of course, that is the "weak link in the chain" scenario where if you find the weak link and make it stronger then the chain will fail at the next weakest link.
They do have some nice features including a flat loop on the right hip for clipping on a tape measure. There is also the ubiquitous hammer loop on the left leg.
And the double pliers pocket on the right leg is big enough to fit my iPhone 5 which also has a somewhat bulky rubber padded case.
These are some terribly tough and long wearing work pants for the price. They cost me about $20.00 less than the Carharts and have lasted twice as long.
Well, to be honest, that isn't entirely accurate, because I haven't worn all of them out yet. The Keys, that is, not the Carharts.
