@2many2no@DVDBZN That is all my husband wore for his last about 18 yrs or so. He was like a boy emptying his pockets at night. I was always waiting for the frog to come out. He had more in those pockets than I had in my purse and I carry a big purse!
@tightwad Really? I don’t have any problem finding them. Heck, my local Wal-Mart has them in five different colors from three different brands. Of course, I live in farm country - that might make a difference.
@dannybeans Carpenters are normally all i buy, even in the summers i get carpenter shorts.
my problem is finding them a) big enough, and 2) in the right colors/fabrics.
stupid retail dress code, no Denim, must be Black or Khaki, no Cargo Pants.
dickies has a design I dearly love, but I really need to be able to try them on. (and no one around here carries them in large[ie:short and fat] enough sizes)
the last 2 times I’ve ordered them from Dickies, even though I get 2 pairs the “same size”, one fits great, the other is tighter and smaller in every dimension. even the phone pocket on the leg is smaller. bare phone won’t even fit into it, the other larger pair, phone in it’s case fits with room to spare.
yet both pants are the same size…
and i’m not going to walmart, they are our competition.
and at least around here, even they don’t have’em fat enough…
Uniform khakis mostly. I gave up trying to find long enough pants in my waist size. Uniform supply houses have to cover pretty much all sizes. And uniform pants tend to be cut so you can move in them, fit over boots, etc.
Blackhawk used to make some called TNT (Tactical non tactical); stealthy cargo features but they looked like business casual slacks. I bought extras when they were discontinued.
