Lightweight Pants

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a particular vendor and/or style of pants that are lightweight? I'm located in Florida and the canvas type pants are heavy and hot here. Any ideas, greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I bought a pair of Indigo Palms pants many years ago from a clearance rack that were loosely woven, cotton, and styled like blue jeans but in a light brown, they were very light and cool in Middle Tenn heat and humidity. I would like to replace them, Indigo Palms is still in business, a little pricey but they lasted more than ten years in this game.

I have some Horsefly pants that are very lightweight and I love them, but he's been gone a long time.  When I started out I got some lightweight black trousers from https://www.riverjunction.com 

I see they have a very large variety now, looks like some of them are lightweight.

Costco has had several brands of stretchy jeans lately.

Howdy Blind Eye,

 

Years ago, I bought a pair of white painters pants. Before the first washing, I carefully cut off a back pocket and those down on the leg. After washing all the stitch holes disappeared and I had some "Mexican" pants.

I do this also, but with scrubs...I even soaked em in a bit of "tea water" to get  rid of the bright white and get the "adobe dust color" in them slightly..gotten where I much prefer dressin' mexi-injun than all the heavy stuff. Makes posse chores easier to do also.

Well, I would win my category as there would be no one left to compete if they saw that! LOL!

The LLBean catalog currently has some "classic fit" jeans that are lighter weight, have some stretch, and they actually have a waistline that doesn't have to be hiked up every few minutes.

I just order the cotton pants I normally wear from Lands End one size larger then add suspender buttons. Have a pair of kaki and light gray. Also check 2nd hand stores for suit paint. Good Luck:)

Dan does a great job on his mexi-injun costumes;) Good Luck:)

Wild West Mercantile sells some cowboy pants that are very lightweight. I have a pair in brown and a pair in grey. That's what I wear in the summer.  https://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=CM81-CM&type=store&category=30030

Linen clothes are supposed to be good in hot weather.
