Now, they are my Dirt Pants. Small holes worn on the inside of the thighs make them impossible to be anything else but pants to wear in the garden and get dirty in. Kneeling, sitting in the dirt-- soil stains don't matter any more because they are in the last season of their life. I like to think that when I'm in my last years, I'm going to live well and play hard, so why not give these pants one last, glorious hurrah of wear? A little stained and dirty? Don't care. Worn and showing it? Hey, they earned those creases and fading. These Dirt Pants are awesome. They stay on, don't gap in the back or push too hard on my belly when I bend over to work-- but they are not going to last much longer, I'm sure. When the holes rip enough to make weeding a spectacle, I'm going to have to give them up. . That will be a sad day, for sure.
|Day Construct Pants|
These pants come with 10 pockets, sleeves for kneepads, double front thigh panels, tool loops and basically all that you need whether you are gardening, working in a wood or machine shop, welding, or really anything which might require a stronger pair of pants. More flattering on the female figure than Carhartts, (and I used to steal Joe's Carhartt shorts all the time) and made with durable stretch fabrics, Dovetail Workwear pants are on my wish list. Especially the Day Construct pants, with a more relaxed fit, gusseted crotch, and lower rise front-- what's not to love? You can check out Dovetail Workwear online or at select local retailers. (note: whether or not you're in Portland, there's a store locator on their website)
