    Last 2 purchases have been through chef wear. I have quit the baggy crappy pants just because I would end up ripping out the crotch some how or way. I have bought 2 pairs of shorts and 2 pairs of pants. Prob. will buy 2 more pairs of pants. I have tried many different pants and some reason cotton just seems to be the best.

    We wear cotton in the foundry and it's hotter in there. Of course though we probably wear it cause iron doesn't stick to it. Aluminum and copper is a different story, nasty stuff.

    shorts are say no go, way too risky in case of spillage.

    Yes these are nice but way too expensive for kitchen abuse. They are pretty much perfect though, for what I want.

    and yes.....I bike a lot.

    At 240$ (Canadian?) they had better be. But I do like them. Not sure how they would do with grease and oil around.

    I Love the fact that they are just a "touch heavier than our shorts."

    Have you considered something like this? http://www.etsy.com/listing/80167563...shown-in-black

    It sounds like they're open to customization. Maybe a nice holster ala Niloc to hold a few knives and a honing steel? You'd probably have to wear a very long apron, but for breathability, it seems like it would be hard to beat.

    Well every year around the 4th of july, there is a Irish/Scottish fest here. And every year my boss says he will get one for next year. I just might get some Christmas presents. For all.

    At the very least, you'd be well prepared for the next Robby Burns dinner.
