    ...not in that way...

    I am constantly trying to find the right pair of pants for work. At the moment I am wearing a pair of Tactical Distributors “Carlos Ray” pants (Kühl knock-off). They are nice in theory, but just cheaply made. I want to get a real pair of Kühls to try. Also in the closet are a few pairs of Triple Aught Design in various flavors. I like them but they wrinkle incredibly easily that it makes them hard to wear when I am overseas for weeks at a time and do not want to spend $25 to get 1 pair of pants pressed at the hotel.

    I need something highly functional and low-profile (read no cargo pants) that are wrinkle-resistant and dry quickly (read not 100% cotton, the less cotton the better). Right now I think my options are TAD, Kühl, Arc’teryx and...?

    Lee Total Freedom. Basically khakis is various colors. 75% poly. Durable comfortable and retain their crease pretty well.

    I have two pairs of kuhls and I hate them. The fabric doesn't breath at all, so I just sweat in them. Well I would if I ever wore them.

    My Kuhl pants breathe well. In fact, I wouldn't want to wear them in Sub-50 temps. I believe the trick to them is getting them in a larger size than you need. The waist/torso area is a bit fitted and doesn't bode well for the guy who puts stuff in his pockets.

    Bluffworks Chinos, pretty hard to wrinkle plenty of discreet pockets.

    Gave mine a good beating in Vegas last week and they performed very well.
