OT: Work pants

So I'm a big fan of Carhartt double knee work pants, but even though they are double knee, I still tend to wear through the knees long before anywhere else. I'm wondering if I could sew on a patch of something right from the get-go that would hold up better in the long run. Maybe Cordura? Can you buy this at a fabric store? In colors to match? My guess is yes...I'm off to google. JP

Way back when, there used to be iron-on knee patches for dungarees (that's what they were called before Sassoon named them Jeans). I don't know if they still sell them, and if they do, if they have them for carhartt.
I'm not awake enough to google it.
