    ^ try the dungarees, I was talking about them for a reason, they are much tougher. Regarding snags.. climbers should be exactly the same as the shorts and I would definitely not climb or even go hiking in them, in fact, even if they are called climbers that wasn't their intended purpose. From Abe's AMA:

    I would also love to get some opinions on some well used OG's or dungarees. How is the fabric in your ultralights doing?

    I bought the ultralights the day they dropped. Probably worn ~1x/week since then, air travel to office to bars, still flawless.

    I bought a pair of 60/30 Chinos in October 2011 and they have not faired well. All of the pockets have holes and the waist has stretched out ~2". They are still incredibly comfortable, though.

    I have the olive 60/30s from the same time as you and haven't had many issues despite 100+ wears. The interior left pocket has torn very recently, but the waist is still as elastic as ever.

    Got a pair of shorts from the Proof NY sale and finally got the sizing right this week. I'm loving the Schoeller fabric - whoever said it was like wearing sophisticated sweatpants was dead on. The stretch is great, the material seems to breathe well despite the muggy Southeast summer. I was at a party last night and we got caught in a thunderstorm - my shorts didn't let any water through and were completely dry within 10 minutes (my shirt, shoes, and socks are still damp this morning). I probably spilled a healthy amount of beer on myself too, but they look perfectly clean.

    Definitely eager to try more Proof and Outlier products now.

    I got my pair of black climbers almost a week ago and love em. I have worn them almost every day.

    The stretch fabric is fantastic, very comfortable, very waterproof (thus far). But they do already show scuffs!! I washed the pants once, scuffs showed before/after.

    I'll give more info as more time passes, obviously...

    EDIT: Also: they are fantastic to bike in. Ridiculously comfortable (compared to "regular" pants) and the pockets are easily accessible while riding)

    I have been buying Outlier pants for a few years now. This year's Ultralight Summer Trousers are pilling badly below the crotch where the pant legs rub together while walking. Luckily I think it's only happening in a spot that's not visible to other people while I'm wearing the pants.

    I closely studied my older ultralights after noticing this and can see that they too are pilling in the same spot, although not as badly, despite having been worn more. So based on my tiny sample size, this year's ultralight fabric might be more susceptible to pilling, which is a shame, because they are otherwise awesome.

    Even with the pilling, they're still way better to wear than traditional work-appropriate wool pants, but I was hoping to get away from this problem (which I also experienced on some of my Alberto pants which have some polyester in them). I stopped wearing jeans a few years ago since I would rip through this same spot within a few months and have to toss them.

    I haven't noticed any pilling on the tougher fabrics used in the 60/30 chinos, climbers, and three way shorts. I guess I'll just suffer with pilling in the summer months. It's better than having my pants rip apart completely I guess.

    purchased my first pair of New OGs in 30 and 31.

    31 is just plain too big, 30 seems just right but the pockets flare. is this typical for the pants?

    ^Thats why I returned my OGs pocket flare is horrible on them, and they look awful because of it.

    I also get some pocket flare but only on the new og's.
    I dont get any pocket flare on the older iteration og's, or the nomads.

    Got my first outlier product, black slim dungarees. At first I was kind of thrown off by texture given off by a synthetic weave but it very quickly grew on me. Great pants, great cut and comfy.

    I might go for OGs and the tees next.

    For the posters above, I say embrace the pocket flare, it looks fine to me. They're meant to be a comfortable pant to wear biking and to the office. The whole perfectly slim/straight pant is just a trend that isn't sticking around forever..

    I dont mind the pocket flare, but having worn pants that do it and ones that dont, I just prefer the ones that dont.
