Don't know how anyone can stand to wear denim jeans. Hottest things in the world, to me, but I know lots of people that work outside that do. I don't do shorts. Haven't worn shorts since I was old enough to know I didn't have to, which, I think, was about 5 years old.

I buy the lightest/cheapest khaki or O.D. green I can find at Wal-Mart. Bought several pair last year for $9 on clearance.

I usually wore shorts (with trickles of blood running down each shin LOL), last year I wore jeans all year, and it wasnt that bad in the 100+...and my knees and shins are still thanking me!!!

Jeans, but if you want to go for the uniform look with the company logo, get Dickies. That's what their made for.

Random loose fit or cargo blue jeans. I just wear them for "good" till they start looking like crap. Then they get work duty.

oh yeah, Long Pants only. Less cancer when I'm older.

Contrary to popular belief they're also cooler than shorts. If pants are hotter than shorts.....then getting a sunburn should make you skin feel cooler shouldn't it? Long pants keeps the skin shaded from the sun.
