    DIY Commuting "Shants" knickers

    I am thinking of these for DIY commuting "shants" / knickers.

    Red Kap Shop Pant for $29.65:

    Red Kap Shop Pant PT2A

    vs. $135 for a pair of Chrome Shins: Chrome SHINS-Knickers that aren't just for the couriers. - Pinkbike

    I am thinking of hemming them at the bottom of the reinforced knee panel. I am planning to order them small because of the 'Invisible stretch waistband expands up to 3 additional inches."

    Garment Details:

    Fabric: 8 oz. Canvas
    Blend: 54% Polyester / 42% Cotton / 4% Spandex
    Finish: Soil release and color retention
    Fit: Relaxed modern fit that combines the durability of a work pant with the comfort of a jean
    Waistband: Concealed, no-scratch button closure at waistband
    Pocket: Two jean-style front pockets, two oversized hip pockets, no scratch cargo pocket on left leg and unique double-pocket design on right leg
    Features: Comfort stretch elastic, Wider and longer belt loops, Full inseam gusset for added mobility, Double-needle stitching, Reinforced front pocket bags to help prevent wear and tear, Fit over boots, Invisible stretch waistband expands up to 3 additional inches.

    FYI - I normally wear a 36" waist, and that is what I ordered. I was temped to size down to a 34" because of the elastic waistband. I will report back once I test them out.

    I'm intrigued. Do post an update with pics after you've modified them and (most importantly) ridden in them.
