    Yes, I've seen such an animal. Do a search "cargo pants" and you should find what you are looking for. They're going run you about $30 to $50 bucks

    Dressy cargo pants?
    How about a dressy Carhartt jacket to go with them?

    Sorry, but something about dressy cargo pants gave me a chuckle.

    Try Woolrich Elite Tactical, The Discreet Pant. May be very close to what you want.

    Have you checked out 5.11? Check out Gall's site, as well as some of the other police supply sites.

    You sounded like my Dad when I wear jeans. When I went to Ireland a few weeks back, I got all new trousers and shirts before I went. I could not hear it anymore. Jeans are for work, you look like a down and out. I am always clean and neat. O'well, no comment this time.
    He was happy I guess.

    BDUs and a tie sound good.

    There's no such thing as dressy cargo pants. In my opinion, if you have cargo pants on you're either a college kid, an abercrombie model or in the army.

    Having said that, the only cargo pants I own are 5.11 and the only place I wear them is the range.

    "Dressy cargo pants?"

    My thought, exactly.

    Now, I've seen a few instructors (ie. professionals) wearing thier pressed 5.11's with thier company's logo polo shirts and that was rather 'dressy' for what was going on (they were contractors training base security personnel, range, tactics, viehical inspections, basic investigations, blah, blah, blah). It worked for those guys and looked sharp enough.

    Dressy is relitive. Fitted cargo britches means buying s few nice pairs and having them fitted by a taylor. (?) Dressy for me is my "Sunday-go-to-meeting" or somebody's "getting hitched" attire. More than once I've donned a sport coat with a nice button-down, tie, and an ironed pair of 'nice' jeans for 'something-or-other'.

    I guess the question needs to be what do you plan on doing in 'em?

    Gotta agree that cargoes aren't exactly "dressy", but they're "dressier" than say jeans and a flannel.

    Just came across this after reading a similar thread. I've always had good luck with Dickie's cargos. They hold their sheen (don't pill up), and they have a permanent crease. If you press them it lasts for days. They are fitted as opposed to baggy (they're more like slacks with cargo pockets than BDUs). They're stain-resistant and very durable. I cut the little red "Dickies" tag off the back pocket so they don't scream "work wear".

    If you wear them with a good pressed polo or collared shirt they look pretty nice. And for $20 it's hard to go wrong.
