What kind of work do you guys do?I never have enough pockets, and the pants I am using wear out in the knees and the pockets. Is there something you have found that works?
These are what I used to wear, when I was doing new commercial construction. I could carry everything I needed in the pockets, and I used strap on kneepads for working on rough surfaces, or dirt.I'd say these are the best all around I have found, Round House bib overalls:
Round House Made in USA Bib Overalls. American Made for 112 Years.
If you like to stuff your pockets, the most important thing is not more pockets to hold more stuff, but straps to hold them up.
I have never worked at one job where shorts were allowed. Not one.I love bib overalls for any real work (not service work), nothing is more comfortable.
But as soon as the weather is willing I switch to carpenter shorts with the side pockets.
My woman says there is something about me in bibs that's sexy, so there's always that...j/s
Even in the heat of south Fl direct sun, I was never allowed to wear shorts. No shorts were ever allowed in any plant I worked in. But in many cases I was glad I had on long pants. Greasy bruised up legs would have been worse on top of worse. After all it was production equipment.I worked in plants that allowed them, but in maintenance I just could not bring myself to wear them.
