    Durable khakis

    Any recommendations? I seem to rip out the middle area (keeping it clean) when I get in and out of the damn car, stretching to dive in I guess. Other than buying a truck for ease of getting in and out and selling the corolla, any brands which are more durable stitching wise, etc?

    Dockers just haven't cut it.

    I don't know where you live, but perhaps a visit to a local store that specializes in clothes for the husky man would be in order.

    Just because you were a size 30 in college doesn't mean you are today.

    If you want a really nice pair get some Bills Khaki's.

    Re: Durable khakis

    I'm telling you, if you have an athletic build at all (smaller waist, bigger legs and arse) you have to try Bonobos. Best pants out there, by far.
