What kind of trousers are best?

For the last 12 years I have worn Wrangler jeans, however this year i am wearing Wrangler khakis to see if they are cooler and more comfortable. What do you all favor?

Used Dickies work pants. Much cooler, less chaffing. Lasted longer too. Jeans just wore out really fast and didn't breathe well. Used their long sleeve shirts as well.

I wear the Roebuck brand work pants from Sears in the khaki color. They are very similar to the Dickies, but I think they are much more comfortable. You can pick them up for around $17 a pair.

One thing that I have noticed is that the grass does not stick to them as much. Could this be a result of the teflon on the pant material?

Yes they loosen up a bit, but it takes time.

I LOVE BACKPACKING wicking pants a la ex officio, or mountain hardwear, but they are so dang expensive, and look so cool, it is years before I can dedicate them to landscaping/lawn maintenance. On the up side, they last for years and years and years and years!!!, so when I do have a couple of pairs for the job (as I do now), they just keep on going.

That sounds like expensive stuff. How much out of curiosity?
