    Tough, decent looking pants. Duluth?

    I am in need of new office clothes. Before I bought the clinic, they shifted us all to business casual with a white coat policy. Not a fan of white coats or business casual.

    I practice in a small town in north georgia. I used to wear carhartt pants, but have been wearing dockers

    So, my questions: what do your vets wear?
    Would you mind seeing cargo pants on a professional?
    Does anyone have experience with Duluth pants?

    My dockers are actually holding up longer than my carhartt did in the knees especially.

    I do need room and flexibility. We are crawling on the floor all dayand around horse trailers frequently.

    Thanks for the help

    Around here, a veterinarian probably wouldn't be trusted by the farmers/ranchers if they showed up in business casual. The latter is more expected by the foofoo crowd when thy bring their pocket dogs etc in for a sneeze.

    As for Deluth, been in them two years now, no complaints. Still have the old carhartts, but the most recent pairs I purchased failed in the first year thus the switch. I don't know why they failed but the fabric just wasn't standing up to abrasion and hard wear like the carhartts I was used too.

    If your primary income is from farm/ranch animals dress accordingly, likewise for the foofoo pets.

    I am a big fan of Dickies cargos, they've held up better than my Carhartts did and they are less than half the price so I can replace them with a lot more regularity. It sure is a lot less heartburn when I get a barbwire snag on a $20 pair of britches instead of $45. The button down work shirts hold up really well also, I had some monogramed with our logo and they look really good, people comment on them all the time.

    Cwi, same issues with my carhartt pants. Knees were going in 3 to 6 months. Dang dockers go a year. I don't like dockers, but they work. The primary income is small animal, but most are local country people. Clean, non-wrinkled carhartt style pants seem to be pretty common among my clients even when I see them out and about.

    I tried the wrangler cargo work pants....pitiful. a shame, because I like good old 13mwz jeans.

    Ol, I have not tried dickies. Mostly because I have not found any for sale in my size locally. I will have to look harder.

    I have an Epi-pen now. A friend gave it to me. He REALLY wanted me to have it. It was his dying wish.

    I've been wearing Duluth for years now and love them. I wear their firehose pants out in the desert because they are not only super rugged but they have a stain/water resistant coating that seems to have lasted for several years now. I'm always crawling under the vehicles wrenching on something that has broke and you don't get to pick what's under there so these are perfect for it. I wear their shorts and shirts all the time. Duluth has a great return policy, you don't like it, return it. No questions asked 100% guaranteed. Over about the last 5 years, I have returned one item and it was really easy. I've worn out one pair of shorts that were the flex firehose but I still use them for working around the place. As to what I would think if a Vet showed up wearing cargo pants. Well I would think he/she is probably smart and not one of these types that are afraid to get dirty.
    F.B.H.O.

    Sounds to me like you already have your answer in that regards. Deluth style wise is about the same as carhartts.

    Now the, back to reality , I would have no issue with our vet or their staff wearing cargos. It's hot here, and if they are more concerned with form over function , than we are probably not going to agree on the best care for my fur kids.
