    I'm looking for some pants for work. They need to be business casual like khakis. But still can be good as farm pants after they have served at the job. They need to last more than one year of washing cycles without falling apart. Pockets are good but they don't have to be cargo pockets.

    I have tried the "sog tactical 5 pocket pants" from WM. They are a cheaply made copy of 511 taclite jean cut pants.

    I like them but what other options can y'all suggest?

    How about T.A.D. Spartan RS pants? Simple and streamlined enough for business type pants yet sturdy and durable to be used out and about, including farm work.

    These come in NyCo and in multitude of colors.

    Yes they may be a little dearer than others but with T.A.D. you get what you paid for.

    Look at the Columbia Roc 2 khakis. They have a second zip pocket behind the front right slash pocket and a tool pocket on the right thigh. I love the pants and the shorts. I can usually find them for $25-$35.

    For more money both Kuhl and Mountain Khakis have a few styles that will work.

    Vertx makes great pants. I second the Kuhl suggestion as well.

    I use Vertex RipStop; I wear them every day. Like 'em a lot! You can see the knee cargo pockets - not sure if that is a deal-breaker for you.

    I mostly wear Mountain Khakis these days. Great pockets, very durable and look great in a business casual atmosphere.

    I second Mountain Khakis. They're durable, super comfortable with a well-designed crotch gusset, and their pockets are laid out very well.

    I third Mountain Khakis. All my work pants are MK I echo everything that was said before with the addition of the double stitched heel area (I forget what they call it) to reduce wear from boots. Great pants. Check out Amazon to get a better than MSRP price.

    Now that they have been spun off from Sears, I might give them another try. I used to wear them, but the last few pair I got (several years ago) were not like the older ones.
