    J. Crew has them again, and this season's look somewhat slimmer than previous versions (which I was swimming in when I tried). They actually look pretty nice, and look like they'd be amazing for traveling, especially if a lot of long flights were involved.

    Where can I find a good peasant status version of the EG fatigue pant? Im thinking a military surplus site?

    i dunno about "good", but these might fit the bill:

    the EG color is much better. i wonder if the gap version can be dyed to switch things up.

    Sorry, I was thinking cargos and fatigues were the same. I got some fatigues that were the same material as the cargos last summer. They usually do a "beach pant" that's a lightweight, drawstring version of a fatigue.

    The first association that pops into my mind upon seeing these pants is "raver" rather than "military".

    Why not just get the real deal and be done with it already?

    Temping, but I think kinda like the "non-real deal" gap ones a little better. Just me.

    Oh I understand. Generally when I'm after pants/shorts along these lines I go for function in the field. They aren't something I generally wear in a casual setting though all the pockets do come in handy sometimes.

    I agree. When I said they where temping, I was thinking in terms of having some good hard work pants that I could wear out in the wilderness and such. Those would be amazing for that.

    TAD Gear once again....Force 10 Legionnaires are badass...they make them in herringbone now as well.

    TAD carries some nice stuff. I've bought climbing gear from them and a few specialized tools that come in real handy out in the middle of Nowheresville.
