Work pants - canvas or twill?

    Hey everyone, particularly with being an owner, I would really like to ditch my jeans and start wearing something a bit more professional. I have some khaki work pants picked out. One pair is canvas and the other is twill. The canvas seems like it would be sturdier, but the twill would look more professional - a business casual kind of feel. Does anyone have a suggestion either way?

    Uniform service at work, or heavy jeans. Casual dress cloths for other occasions.

    The waist are adjustable to cover a 2"<> range in sizes (Large 36-38") and obviously tall's are for normal people........

    You can also get them 100% rip stop cotton which is nice in the summer but I don't think you can get them in anything other than camo patterns.

    I get them off Amazon and there's a couple local stores that carry them

    The crew likes these,the leather holds up well! Gives our company a little extra panache!

    While you're at it, check if they come as manpris, I know another member who would love a pair or 3 to go with his sandals.

    What do your crews wear for uniforms?

    I have cargo pants for my crews, in olive drab or pine or something along those colors.

    When it gets cold, I switch to some Duluth Fire Hose. Have never had to wear long undies with those on.

    I am NOT a business casual kind of guy. I have ties for church, but don't own a suit. Dressing up for me is a "good" pair of jeans and a button down shirt. lol

    Canvas or ripstop for me.

    Interesting, wrong colors for me.

    I will be checking into these, however. I think they're cheaper than what I've been getting and my crews hate the button fly on the current ones. I do too.

    Jeans and a Safety green t-shirt, I wouldn't mind getting them into something different either.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you're a female Griz, I would think any movement in the bush (wilderness) would be a happy time. I mean, look at this lady. She'd have no problem finding Fluffy attractive...
