    So with my job as a network engineer i have a unique need for khaki carpenter pants. I could probably get a pass on the dress code but i do enjoy looking good when dealing with management and just being around the office. I carry two phones and a flashlight at all times. I also have keys and my personal effects etc. This load makes my regular khakis uncomfortable so if i can find some khaki carpenter pants and get the flashlight into a side pocket that will help. I prefer lite color (most clothiers call them stone) but i am also open to regular khaki color. So does anyone know of a company that makes khaki carpenter pants?

    I have six pair of Wrangler denim carpenters and I think they make them in Khaki.

    Fellow network engineer here. I do enjoy that we get to stretch the dress code a little bit. Would not be the best idea crawling around under desks and in dirty server rooms with dress pants on.

    All you slack wearers :tongueout:

    I got grunts to do most of the dirty work but I do have to crawl around in the server farm for the more advanced stuff that I dont trust to grunts! :supergrin: Nothing a little washin by the fiance wont fix though! :whistling:

    Anyway, thanks for the info guys! I like the riggs and wranglers but it doesnt look like the wranglers are available in carpenter from the site or store and I cant find the riggs stuff either. I think im going with the duluths! They got the extra ball room and LAWD knows I needs that! :rofl:

    +1 on Duluth trading. Pay once, cry once. Sturdy as heck, almost as sturdy as Filson but at half the price.

    i keep seeing the term "carpenter" pants/shorts and yet in all my years working around carpenters i've never met a single one that would wear the things. every carpenter i've ever met has an actual tool belt for when they need to carry tools.

    I think the term "carpenter pant's" means the trouser will have a hammer loop made of denim and a pocket for a wooden rule...
    Back in the day, on a union job, a carpenter had to wear striped carpenter overalls..No "scab belts" allowed...:faint:

    I would go with 5.11. They are comfortable, durable and have a crazy amount of uses without having the BDU look.

    5.11 TacLitePro pants. Ridiculously comfortable. Get in Khaki or coyote brown color.

    Menard's carries Riggs if you have one.
