    What’s every one wearing to work these days? Jeans, shorts, cargo pants/shorts, khaki’s ect?

    Lately all i wear are jeans. even in the dead of summer I’m building homes, decks ect in jeans and a t-shirt. I dont know why i dont wear “work shorts” maybe i dont think its professional but i cant see why its not. Maybe this summer i will wear some shorts to keep a little cooler.

    What is everyone around here wearing?

    A decent number of us around here have gotten either blaklader pants or shorts and have all been pretty pleased with them I believe – though sizing may be a little bit tricky in some ways…

    I’ve seen that brand prior to being on here and have been interested in then. I’ll read those reviews and maybe order a pair!

    For the most part shorts in the summer. I like ether cargo or carpenter style. That way I can keep my phone in a side pocket.

    in the summer i go with shorts all the way.. jeans are just too warm, once you start sweating its becomes harder to move in them

    typically i buy levi’s cargo shorts, but since last year ive been wearing the blakladder shorts

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I think this is the year for shorts. I’ve seen some good options on this forum.

    I always wear shorts in the summer. Once it hits 60 degrees and stays there the pants get put away and the shorts come out. Does anybody wear the Blaklader work kilt? I know a couple framers who love those things.

    I wear shorts year-round. Out here in the desert it’s rare to see me in long pants.

    I’m going to try a pair of their shorts with my points at some point. I see no reason to wear a skirt. I mean kilt

    Must be nice. I’ve been more bundled up this year then in many many years. I’ve also done more decks this winter then last summer. Figure that one out lol

    Shorts for sure…same as Pat — warm here year round. I hate sweating in pants and it is uncomfortable working in them.

    Carpenters shorts for sure once the weather is decent. As long is they are clean and not full of holes, I think shorts are acceptable to wear in warmer weather and do not look tacky.

    Pants everyday, no matter the weather. I think boots and shorts look weird, or better yet fear it will look weird on me.

    Shorts year round no matter what. I hate pants. Dickies is all I am ever seen in, work or play.

    Yes I do, but I hate hate hate the heat. Why I am here? I ask myself that everyday. We were jipped out of winter this year. I think the all you guys back east took it! LOL

    So we got zero snow IIRC. I don’t think we even got under 30° this year.
