I own two pears of these. Deep pockets for pocket carry and a separate pocket for keys, change, etc.

So for those who pocket carry what brands of pants and shorts do you wear? When I wear pants I'm pretty much limited to iwb carry from my current clothing line-up. My favorite pair of cargo shorts with deep pockets are about 6 years old and ready to fall apart. So it's time to get some bottoms...really NOT wanting anything tactical looking.
What do you wear?
Wrangler five star relaxed fit 32x32, or Ariat 32x32
get a belly band and you can wear any shorts and they won't fell like they want to fall down
My current shorts and pants don't feel like they are ever falling down. Get a quality gun belt (I have a crossbreed) and you won't have to worry about a belly band and then trying to access said firearm. Please keep your replies to the topic at hand... This is particularly about pocket depth NOT belly bands.
Its not about what kind of shorts you wear but what kind of boxers!
I don't think it matters man. I pocket carry a lot and just go with what ever I'm wearing
I normally do not pocket carry but at a recent gun show I purchased a 4-inch S&W Model 25 and rather than have all the “what are you selling” queries I just stuffed in my Wranglers Relaxed Fit Jeans front pocket, surprisingly it fit quite well with only a small part of the grip showing.

North Face paramount peak convertible pants. Their pants, then their shorts too when you zip the legs off. They have nice deep pockets. You would want to use a pocket holster since the material is on the thin side.
Thanks for the helpful replies so far! And yes I use a desantis nemesis for a pocket holster with great success since ive been carrying.
I also have a Desantis Nemesis that I carry a S&W 642 in during the summer when I'm wearing shorts and a tank-top. I've got a couple different kinds of shorts, but my favorite are 5.11s. Ya, they have a bunch of pockets, but near a college, there are hundreds of people of all ages wearing cargo shorts of all different brands. I also stuff it into my Levis front pocket on rare occasions. A bit of a tight fit and a bit hard to draw rapidly, but at least it is with me! I also have 5.11 cargo long pants, as well as the shorts. Again, near a college, I don't worry about the "tactical" look--it is also a "college" look. Living near a college and a military base, I just never worry about how I look.

After going through many, many pairs of different pants, I have settled on these as the absolute BEST pants for discreet, secure pocket carry, IMHO. I have three pair, in different colors and am looking at the cargo shorts for this summer.
