Clothing mainly pants
« on: December 16, 2007, 09:03:26 PM »
Wife is complaining that I keep busting out the crotch in my jeans, despite repeated attempts to sew it closed. One of her friends was over and made a comment about my flannel underwear and that was like the last straw for her. Now my work jeans have disappeared and can't be found, she threw them all away  >:(

Been looking at Bailey's Duck work pants and Wild Ass doubles - what do you guys wear and do you get any mileage out of them?

I liked my old jeans they were down right comfortable, but I guess free styling isn't much in fashion.

The majority of my work clothes come from Sam's wholesale club.   I've not had any problems other than some of the pants having a short rise. I will be changing because the T-shirts are now a thinner material.

before I started with the sawmill, all of my work clothes were Dickies.  I always felt top notch.

I've had great luck with Bailey's "Wild Ass" pants.  Only complaint is the label on the back, which will, no doubt, get comments.  I cut them off.  Pants themselves wear well, and I've never had a seam split apart.  As far as I'm concerned, they're well worth the money, if you happen to be a size that they carry.  Of course, your underwear will still show through if you forget to zip up the fly :D!

I wear Rustler jeans I think they are made by Wrangler. They hold up well for me. They are heavier material than some jeans. Cost around $10-$12 at Wal-Mart or K-Mart.

I've worn Carhartts, Arborwear, Baileys wildass doubles and all the other brand jeans.  Baileys are by far the best work jeans I've worn.  They wear like iron, they are reasonably priced and they have the rivets for suspenders if you're so inclined.

I wear the "wild ass" doubles. Well worth the money :), but doubles can get real hot in the summer heat with chaps over the top. I wear Ben Davis under my chaps quite a bit, I think they are more comfortable than the doubles, but the last pair of Ben's I got said they were made in Dominican Republic. I also noticed the tag on the back does not say "Made in the USA" anymore it just says "Built Tough" I noticed the difference, cause that last pair are the only ones that blew out in the crotch. The other 7 pair I have are still doing fine after several years. If they are not continuing to be made in San Francisco than I will quit buying Ben Davis. :-\ The "Wild Ass" hickory shirts are nice too, like the pants, well worth the money. :)

I've been wearing Dickies for years.Like them better than jeans to move around in.I just bought 2 new pairs.I see they are made in Mexico now.Mine wear out above the knees.I have never had a blow out with them.But I do buy them a little big.I don't like to be restricted when I bend over.Same way with my tee shirts.

Thanks guys theirs nothing like experience to steer you in the right direction - I'm going to order a few pairs of the wild ass doubles maybe like a size bigger than my jeans and a pair of suspenders see how they do.

Tom where do you get your red shirts?  ;D

Thanks

I have some extremely expensive work trousers.  They cost 5 years and seven months of working in a medium security facility with chronically mentally ill felons...NC DOC provided them for me and they allowed me to keep them after I retired.. The price was too high.
Actually I started out sawing in bib overalls.  They were fine especially since I did not need suspenders.  Now I wear extra wide red suspenders.  I carry lots of stuff in my pockets and still have a small behind........More information than you needed........

Dad2nine, they have come form Walmart or Sam's over the years.  Sam's quit selling Red here and the wife bought the thin ones at Walmart.  We'll be looking elsewhere I suspect.

fat 0ld elfe, I suffer from a like malady.  The difference, probably, is that my midriff is has gotten larger than my lower extremities.  I can't get my belt tight enough to hang on and there is no ledge to keep them from slipping down.  I'd like to think that my derriere is small, but I'm afraid that might be true only in comparison. :-[

I have the same disease as you fellow, all gut and no butt. I don't often work in jeans. Not enough pockets, too restricting, and I can't keep them from slipping down. If I put my belt tight enough to hold them, I can't breath. I wear mostly Walls coveralls because for many years I got a free pair every three months from work, but alas all good things come to an end. Before the freebes i used to wear bibs and when the last of my coveralls wear out I will go back to them.

I have been buying the rustler  geans because they are cheap and I can rip cheap one as well as expensive ones .  I also like to get the streach fabric because it does not restrict movement when bending .

Carhartt bibs make up most of my wardrobe.  I have problems getting the button fly like I like and sometimes make a mistake and get the zipper fly.
