Default Carharts

Are Carharts too hot for the summer months? I was thinking about picking up a few pairs for this summer what does everyone else wear? In the past I have used like dickie or levi or something like that.

Sorta.....

The typical brown heavy pants you automatically think of when someone says "Carhartts" are to hot. But they sell other pants that stand up to abuse and are not to hot. The hot/ heavy pants are canvas.

I buy the "twill" single front pants for summer and the double front for winter.

I don't spend my time sitting on a ZTR. I am HARD on my clothing and these pants hold up well.

I like these as well.

I just buy a bunch of cheap heavy jeans from kmart, costco, walmart etc etc.
I use them on the job and in the shop. Plus i have an awkward size so i buy them when i can.

They are cheap and i can beat the heck out of them..

Same here.
I picked up several pair of St John's Bay cargos on clearance at JCPenny a few years ago at the end of season. Aside from the color fading from excessive washing, they have held up much better than I had anticipated.



I just picked up another pair the other day for $30. I didn't think I'd even be able to find them again because that's the way it always works - find something comfortable and the next season, they've replaced them with something different.
I was pleased to see that they still carry them and the only difference is color and they replaced the snaps on the pockets with velcro. They carry Dockers brand in a similar style (and they have the elastic tab waist), but they didn't fit me as comfortably. They were a lighter weight material too.



I can only wear long pants for so long... when the temps get too high, I have to switch to shorts. I like the lightweight, "hiking-style" shorts.



The drawback to shorts is getting poison ivy on my legs from using the trimmer and getting debris thrown onto my legs. Usually though, by the time it's "shorts season", the lawns are pretty well under control and there isn't a lot of messy trimming to do. If I know I'm heading to do a job with a lot of trimming, I wear pants.

As for Carhart... I have no idea - I've always assumed they were too heavy for my likes. If they have a "summer" line of clothes, maybe that's something to look into.

I am still using the ones I got at weed man (they gave us all kinds)
and then I going to Mark's Work Warehouse they have them for around $25-$29
I also keep a look out at value village for some. I have picked up about 6 shirts there for $4.99 each and they still have the $25.99 price tag on them.
I will take them to get embroidered once I got some cash coming in.
