    i find corduroy to be REALLY hot. Im not sure if a blend will help or hurt you, but I would probably stick with the jeans. Don't you have an old pair of chino or khaki pants? those are normally a lot lighter and cooler.

    I used to have the most wonderful pants for summer in high school, but I can't find anything like them now. I will describe them in hopes of someone knowing something like them.

    I believe they were from a store called Structure which then became part of the Express brand. I would guess they were a synthetic material. It was very, very thin, not soft necessarily, but so light--almost more crisp than soft. They were stretch at the waist with a bright orange cord that you pulled out and adjusted with some sort of doo-hickey. They had cargo pockets on the legs of the pant. This particular pair was khaki, and there was the neon orange highlight.

    They sound kind of funky by description, but I found them quite stylish. I would have bought them maybe in 2000.

    Anyone know what these type of pants are called?

    Linen pants for men, but you'll look like you are going to get married on a beach.

    Polyester in the summer? Really?

    If anyone has a real suggestion, I'd love one. I work in an office but we're very laid back. Jeans and a button down or polo is the standard faire.

    While my upper body would match, I don't like the sarong.

    This forum is becoming a magnet for truly ridiculous questions...

    "What should I wear, coz' it's hot?"

    Do you REALLY need to ask? :D

    In the summer, I usually start wearing Khakis, Dockers, or other form of slacks. They allow the air to properly circulate, which is very nice.

    I feel that if we, as men, wish for women to go panty-less in sexy skirts, we're required to go commando in kilts.

    Thank heavens one occurs more than the other, sans Scotland.

    no doubt! and some sport sandals. and a big glass of iced tea.

    unless this is a construction gig where you really don't want the up-kilt issues, then utilikilts with underbits and steel-toed-boots FTW. :D

    The Scotsman went commando, good enough for me.
