For the past many years I have been loyal to buying relaxed-fit jeans made by a large, well-known maker of rugged workwear. I purchased a couple pair of these jeans because of the great experience I had with Schaefer-Ranchwear's 1810 Ranch Trousers and I am not one bit disappointed. These 1850 Classic Dungarees have the same relaxed fit like the work-wear brand but with a slightly raised rear waistline. Because of that, I feel these jeans are much more comfortable to wear especially while sitting.
The relaxed fit of these 1850's is much like that of the 1810's. An overlay of the two are seemingly identical. These relaxed fit jeans are probably not be the best choice of jeans for activewear but more for when the work day is over. The color is the lighter blue shown versus what the Cowboy is wearing but the fit he shows seems to reflect the product accurately.
The quality of these jeans is higher than those available from the well-known workwear brand plus I find the detailing better thought out. I love these jeans and would highly recommend them to anyone enjoying a relaxed fit. For me, these fantastic USA made jeans from Schaefer-Ranchwear will replace those imported jeans from now on and are a great value. (Posted on 2/13/13)
Just got a pair and they fit great. Relaxed enough to get your foot in the stirrup of a big horse and be comfortable moving around in the saddle or doing chores. Like an old hotel - lots of ballroom. (Posted on 10/17/12)
I say "Dungarees" because that's what we called them when I was a kid. I've worn Levis "Original" (505 and 550) jeans since junior high along with Lee and Wrangler (who knows before that). I'm 53 years old now and can honestly say that the Schaefer 1850s are by far the best pair of jeans/dungarees I've ever owned. I bought three pairs in order to get the 15% off discount and I'm so glad I did. These are great dungarees....., they're really roomy but not in a baggy sloppy kind of way. I've hiked with my 1850s as well as worn them out and about and have no complaints at all. I have to be honest, I was first attracted to Schaefer because their products are not only made in USA but all the raw materials are made here as well. The price is very reasonable when you consider the quality of the product... I need to say "quality" a couple more times.... "quality, quality". Thanks Schaefer... for a Great Dungarees.

I have one pair of these. They are built to last for sure. They are definitely RELAXED compared to other brands. I also bought the 1800's that fit me a little better as they too are relaxed enough for me. They are very well built and very roomy. (Posted on 10/24/11)
