If you have children then you know all about Hole in the Knee Syndrome! You go out and you buy them a pair of jeans, they wear two days (if you are lucky) and then there are the holes that always seem to somehow end up in the knees. I am not really sure why it is but the holes always start in the knees. I cannot tell you how many pair of jeans a month we go through. No matter how much I scream and yell (I sound so much like my mother) the holes happen and I end up buying more jeans.
Carhartt, America’s premium workwear brand, has jeans that are designed for the play ground as well. I bet you didn’t know that! We buy Carhartt a lot for hubby because he works in construction and Carharrt clothing holds up to everything he has to do. I buy him new clothing for work maybe once a year and it is usually because he has gone up or down a size not because the clothing has torn. I love Carhartt as a brand so I was super thrilled when they asked to send me a pair of jeans for the kids to try out.
The Boys Washed Denim Dungaree Pants are great! I have not heard jeans called Dungarees in a long time, it is what my aunt always called them. The first thing I noticed is that like all Carhartt clothing these are built to last. They are strong and durable which means they pass the first test. Next was the sizing, I got a 6 but was a bit worried they would be too small. They were actually a little too big but have they button adjustment that many kids pants have nowadays which means I could get a custom fit. They are a bit long but that is what happens when you are short. Once we put on shoes they were fine.
They look really great on and since yesterday was ice and sleet they got put to the ultimate test. All the slipping and sliding around outside and then of course all of the crawling around on the floor inside the house. Any other jeans would have bitten the dust by now. There is not a single hole, I mean not even a hint of a hole in the knees of these pants. THANK GOD!! Carhartt makes many other boys clothing items but they also have great girls jeans and clothing as well.
