Okay, the Dos Boris Cargo Pants. I got a pair a few months back.
Here is what you need to know.
The look, I bought the green (olive), which may or may not be the best choice. They are different when you get them, but they are still a cool design. What you can not see is a design that runs down,(the, I believe, left or both sides, I am not looking at them currently) side(s).
Shows the design partially, click on details on the lower pair, *Note* that the darker (dark tan they call olive) on the Volcom link above, is not the color you will get here, these from dogfunk are green. The design is like black, drawn map with animals. I think it looks cool and does not distract or draw attention.
Which is nice because it makes them slightly different from say.. military or tactical pants, which people had thought they were. They definitely have that look. It has two back, two waist side, two cargo, and one small (for thin cells, cash, cards, etc. on the right leg between the waist and cargo) pockets (7 total).
The feel, they are comfortable, at first I thought they were too rigid but after a wash and four days on my floor and wearing them everyday they break in well. They may seem warm, not great for summer, but just right to wear at night. I can't find a great shirt combination that is great with them other than black, which is what I wear anyways and I usually wear with black shoes or boots.
I wear them about twice a week, good if you go out in the woods, you can play around in them, load them up with crap, although it will of course slow you down.
I have never done parquor with them yet but they seem like they can take some extreme stuff, just remember they can get a little (not extremely though) warm.
If you are going to get dress pants but do not like the silky (I guess cold and weird) feel of tailor or brand name dress pants or even that sense that you are wearing pants made of just cloth,
I would definitely recommend these. I have been buying the black Chino for years and I always want more of them. These will be the most comfortable, movable material you can wear that is not like... Armani. Before I bought Volcom, the pants I use to wear, would come off the minute I did not have to wear them anymore, these I wear all the time. They are about $55. but I always wear them. Wear them with t-shirts (although honestly the black can sometimes look weird), dress shirts, whatever, they are sharp (my dad's wording). And the gray, the pair I just bought, is pretty sick too.
The look... think well lets say Dickie's pants, but with a more comfortable interior, I always thought Dickie's to be itchy on the inside, and Chinos are less shinny and more i guess sharp of pants, definitely can wear them in the office, I just use to have a boss complain about the white patch (black on the gray pants) on the inner left leg, aesthetic choice by designer, but I just put electric tape over it.
Also you can find these pants at PacSun, but they may not always have the color or size you want, Dogfunk has way more options than I realized were out there, I used standard shipping (1-3 weeks) and it got to me in about 5-6 days, I was not in a particular hurry though.
