Workaday versions or the mainline version? Absolutely love my Navy ripstop fatigues from this season

Workday fatigues are best described as having a "full" fit through the leg. Which essentially means from your butt down it doesn't taper. The mainline fatigue pants have a more modern straight fit.
You can view the fit of mainline fatigues here:
compared to Workday here:
I have personally bought two pairs of EG Workaday fatigues and I have had both pairs tapered. I have a small frame and they were simply too baggy for me. I had one pair tapered in to a slim straight fit, and the other in to a modern straight fit.
I think there is a noticeable difference - measured here for M (Which fits a TTS 34 - From TBB and my own experience).
- Mainline SS14: Slimmer in thigh (12") and hem (~8" or a tad over), they are shorter (Almost cropped) with an inseam of ~30". Ripstop fabric is incredibly light and rather thin. Waist is 34.5" with draw string
- Workaday: Baggier in thigh and leg (13" thigh) and hem (9"), traditional length (32 - 33"). Reversed Sateen is heavier so it feels/ looks different, not as light. Waist seems 34" with button tabs to go down an inch
I am a big fan of the mainline fatigues this season and got a couple of them. They are still a relaxed fit, even with my slightly larger thighs and have become my go-to everyday pants.
Hope this is helpful.
I have the Grey Reversed Sateen Utility Jacket - it's a nice color. Let me know what you think of them.
FWIW: Nepenthes is going to start taking phone orders on Monday for the Vans collab and I think since they're very similar to last year they won't sell out extremely quickly. Hold tight non-New Yorkians and you'll get a pair.
I was thinking about these. Can anyone who owns these speak to their versatility? I know in CM gray pants are usually the optimal choice, but I wonder if these would work the same way.
