When Carhartt was founded in 1889, Hamilton Carhartt spoke about the role of a responsible business, doing "the just and honest thing, gainful if possible". These core principles have underpinned Carhartt's approach to workwear from the very beginning and continues today.
This is a pair of mens vintage Carhartt cotton canvas work shorts with heavy duty triple stitching to the main seams.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear throughout. Freshly laundered and ready for their new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
SIZE: The size label states 34 and these measure true to size which should make them a good fit if you typically take shorts in a 32in waist (UK Sizing), which allows room for a comfortable fit as shorts are now typically worn lower on the waist - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

- Carhartt branded button waist

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
