It took me way to long to buy a pair.

I use to go through 2 pairs of double front carhartts in about 6 months, by the time I hit a year with them they were patched everywhere and I looked homeless.

These pants are worth every penny, and I’m extremely happy that American made still means something! Iv owned a pair of the foundation pants for about 3 months now and they look brand new. I wear these pants everyday, working as a carpenter, running a saw, chopping wood, working on my truck, no matter what I throw at these things they can take it. Normally the section my pants get warn out first is where I hook my knife/tape measure, Iv had zero issues of excessive wear on those spots with these pants.

They are slightly stiff when you first get them but after wearing for around a day and one wash they are perfect.

All that being said buy these pants and support American made!

Trying to find a good fit

Sent Foundation pant back, for a different size. Originally purchased 32W, 30IS regular. Sent back for 34W, 30IS slim fit. Will See?
Gave my son Shop Pant 34W, 30IS the Misses didn’t like how they fit, he’s a little chunkier below the waist.
Utility pants are 34W, 30IS slim fit. I’m keeping them, but haven’t worn yet. I like the Marketing, and the American Made, haven’t given up yet. I’m retired still wearing old worn out work pants, so don’t go 100% by me. Will buy more when I feel I have the right size.
Outstanding Quality, I will say that.

Outstanding Value

First off, I am not in the trades of any kind. You might be asking, "then why did you even buy these pants?" Good question. Simply put, I wanted pants that A. last a long time and B. are made in the USA. There are a plethora of pants that cost more than these and are not even made here (US). I can't imagine they are better made. I now have four pair of these trousers. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a heavy-duty pant for a more than fair price. Keep up the great offerings, 1620!


Foundation pants are the go to pants all day everyday

Go to pants

Proper go to every day pants. Good for work, out and about and not a bad price at all. Sure they don’t have all the pockets of the work pants but they’re great.
