Just checked in to see if there was anything else I needed to know about pants. Seems we're doing skirt testimonials now.

I'd rather wear bants, which are like boot-pants. They only cover your feet and calves. Everything else just kinda hangs there. Lots of airflow. And nobody can give you **** for wearing a skirt.

I bought an exercise mat and cut it up for knee pads for the last 5 pairs of pants. Still have some left.

Do you think that works about as well as the kneepads they sell specifically for that purpose? That would certainly be cheaper than buying 5 pairs.

IDK, I’ve never had the brand specific kneepads.

The exercise mat pads do break down after a while, so I just cut another pair.

I’m toying with the idea of using a 1 inch thick kneeling pad. Inside the knee pockets that is.

Plumber noticed my pants today, and asked about them. The GC thought it was weird asking another man about his pants.

After trying a bunch of different pants. I’ve been buying tactical uniform pants. The Galls G-tac hold up pretty well for the price. They are lite weight and quick drying which is important living in FL. Big roomy cargo pockets with loops inside, knee pad pockets.

Only complaint really is the front pocket I carry my keys in blows out if I don’t stick an iron on patch to reinforce it.
