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.
