    Who makes the best messenger pants?

    I've heard that these actually exist. Any brands that are preferred?

    +1 on dickies plus scissors

    because cut-offs are going to be in next summer

    edit: if you're going to make shants out of dickies, make sure you have a third party tell you what looks good. I cut them way too low before and they look dumb, but worked great. Above-knee is cool though, as far as cut off shorts.

    i got two pairs of casual cycling pants for good deals. portland cyclewear's pant, and swrve cotton dynamic knickers.

    portland cyclewear is light, stretchy material, with a built-in light padded liner. think an odd cross between a bathing suit, and cycling underwear. not bad, but too bunchy. i cut out the padded liner and didn't look back. love the material - super comfortable in the warm weather. only problem is that i tore a hole in 'em on my tt cable guide. so off came the cable guide, and the pants have been waiting to be stitched together.

    since then i've been wearing the swrve ones. really snug fitting. they're cotton, so they're definitely more casual and less cycling than the stretchy portland cyclewear ones. but i like the cut a lot and find them to be really comfortable on me. the arse zippers are a bit too big and they're just too snug for the rear pockets to be super useful, but that's just cause i've got a delightful arse. what can i say.

    i like both of these pants a lot, but wouldn't have paid retail. i don't make a habit of paying that much for pants. or any clothing, really. but if that's what you're in to, then go ahead, and knock yourself out.
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    I got set up for a blind date once. Was showed some very flattering pictures of the girl... I go to pick her up..

    She is wearing Jncos.

    She was 25.

    Needless to say her personality was just as bad as her choice in pants.

    They serve as pants, and your bag all you need are some safety pins.
