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.
