I always wear the pants, and cuffs down over boots. We have brooms to dust off the sawdust and washing machines up here to wash sweaty pants. Not many shortcuts. :D
Move'n on.

@Tom King 
thanks for the link. I hadn't had time to try to make something so I just ordered a pair of those.  I'll let everyone know how they worked out after I get them.  They look like they are just spandex tube.  I don't have any spandex or I could sew them.  On the other hand you need to stretch the spandex as you sew a zig zag stitch, and I can't do that very well.  So better to buy and try.

In the past I believe that @Peter Drouin posted using cut off socks to prevent sawdust intrusion.

I have an older version by OR.  I walk with my feet passing close by each other, and even when hiking with hiking boots, I throw stuff in my own shoes.  Mine have a hook in the front that grabs shoe laces.  I couldn't tell by the picture if this model does, but I would guess that they do.  They're not waterproof, but made to breathe, and a lot tougher material than Spandex, but you don't know they're there soon after starting to wear them.  They work like they should.

My solution to summer work pants is to head to the local goodwill store and I buy 4 or 5 pairs of light khaki pants that I used to wear to work.  Usually only pay $2-3/pair for them.  Not as hot as blue jeans but still gives me leg coverage.  They get stained/used quickly but last all summer for almost no cost.

use your socks you that you are already wearing, as long as they are still elastic.

Only my wool type socks are stretchy enough to pull them over the boot, and saw dust sticks to them like velcro!  So I can't do that.  My white gym socks aren't stretchy enough.

@Southside  then at the end of a day of cutting, you could pull a rope and a bunch of water could fall on your head and cool you off.   :D  I think this should be the toast at this years pig roast. "here's to wood chips in your boots!!!  8)  sorry I forgot the lol or smile emogi on the last post.  lol

Yeah, and if it keeps heading in the same direction, the groin injury thread would be an improvement too. ;D ;D :D
