    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum. I'm not sure if this is the right place, but I'm trying to find cargo pants that meet specific criteria. I absolutely cannot stand velcro, which is unfortunately what they make most cargo pants with. What I like are the buttons. Unfortunately, most that I can find with the buttons have only 1 size per waistline, meaning it's really hard to find something in 36x30.

    Can someone recommend me a pair of pants that is:
    Available in 36x30
    Cargo pants with buttons (not velcro or snaps)
    Has a smooth feel to it
    Loose or straight fit that won't restrict movement

    I'm having a tough time finding this. I've spent hours both in brick and mortars and online and not found anything that quite fits what I want. It's really frustrating when I know what I want and just can't quite get it. I would welcome any advice.

    What are you talking about when you say "smooth". Like a tech fabric? Or a canvas? Are the pants for the style, or do they need to fulfill some other function. Finally, how much are you willing to pay?

    I don't really know much about materials. What I mean is something that isn't coarse. I have really dry skin, and coarser fabrics can be very irritating. (This is also why I don't want velcro). I also don't like the lines you get with denim (I realize we're not talking about jeans, but I hope it gives you an idea of what I'm looking for).

    I'm not really looking for a particular style. I just want to find pants that are comfortable, fit me, and have big pockets. I am very active, and need pants that will not restrict my movement, such as grabbing my knees when I try to bring my knees up high. This is why I don't want narrow pants.

    As for price, I'd prefer not to spend over $100 per pair, but I really want pants that fit me right and will do what I need them to do.
