I really like the idea of a capsule wardrobe and whittling things down to the real essentials, but at the moment I'm a little stuck for options.
This week I was out working and slipped and tore a hole in my nice jeans (is that an oxymoron?)
Anyway, that got me thinking of pants. I am active around the homestead and also, when work is available, a software engineer by trade.
Jeans did reasonably okay for both purposes, but is there something better? By that, I mean both tougher around the property and classier looking at the office (I've been reading the Art of Manliness blog again, lol).
Plus, jeans are technically a no-no anyway when it comes to the outdoors -- "cotton kills", so goes the old saying.
Right now I'm picturing somethin like... wool, maybe with nylon added at key points for durability... ?
I've done some searching and come across "tactical pants" and so-called "firehose pants".
Are these sorts of things any good? Do they look okay?
I'd rather not wind up looking like the Gi Joe of the programming world, if you know what I mean. ;)
In other words I'm in unfamiliar territory here. What recommendations do you have?
If you don't "know enough"... try anyway! (Cuz that's how you learn.)
