The carpenter pants have different types of pockets and also have loops to hold
items such as a hammer.
As you have probably guessed from
the name, this
type of pant
is often worn by carpenters and construction workers. This type of pant
provides a method to carry their tools so that their hands can be kept free to
work on various tasks. They can walk around with their hands free and at
the same time the tools are still easily accessible.
Carpenter pants are usually made of blue denim or canvas
material. The key is to use a fabric that is very durable. The color
of these pants may vary but white, beige and blue are popular colors.
An easy way to identify carpenter pants is by the “hammer
loop". This type of loop is generally not on other types of pants. A
'hammer loop' is usually located on the left leg; although this was originally
designed to be useful, most carpenters do not use the loop, because the hammer
often falls out or bangs around the leg (you would have to ask a carpenter of
you don’t believe me). Other features include extra pockets, sometimes located
on the outer thighs, and extra rivets for durability.
Another feature that is often used on carpenter jeans is
wider than typical belt loops, to accommodate a wider & thicker belt. Using a
big belt is wise because of the extra weight of the tools being carried in the
pockets and loops. Having a tightly cinched & wide belt helps support the
weight of the tools being carried in or on the pants.
Most carpenter jeans are made for function.
Although they have been worn as fashion at times, the primary purpose is for
work. Therefore, they are generally manufactured to be comfortable yet
sturdy as possible.
Not all clothing retailers carry this type of jean.
