Agreed on the road rash, but it looks like the pouch for armor plating is strategically placed.
Unfortunately I can’t second the durability. They are very good pants and reasonably priced, but I have found that they start getting holes in unseemly areas in 2 years of mostly light use with few pairs in rotation. I think that is a fair result for me, but not the super-durability I was hoping for. I can’t really take advantage of the warranty because of the shipping costs.
I think there were similar opinions in r/buyitforlife. Some say the Duluthflex-versions are more durable even though they are of thinner material.
I previously used these:
Those are much more durable. They are of even thicker and (in the beginning) stiffer canvas material. They have multiple styles now. Maybe I will go back to those after trying the Duluthflex pants.
The Cactus pants are made in New Zealand and the Duluth pants in Vietnam. I am much more comfortable with NZ labor / environmental practices.
I’m sorry, are we still talking about the thong butler?
Maybe they meant “buttler”.
I have found Arborwear to be more comfortable and bulletproof. They have the essential gusseted crotch, and are all-around my favorite when doing stuff that tends to destroy clothing.
I second that. I also have a few work shirts from them that are rock solid and I put them thru hell grinding, welding, etc…
Longtime Duluth traders fan here, despite a few substandard articles of clothing and a completely non-responsive customer service department. Just had to retire a pair of pants I used for blacksmithing for over a decade, having burned a hole in an . . . inappropriate location, and patching just made it look worse. Replacing them with a pair I’d used for work until I managed to snag them on a rack and rip a small hole on the thigh, so far so good.
Is anyone that hairless in real life? The thong models’ bodies look plastic. I’ve seen more hair on egg shells.
But now I have a new mental image to superimpose on people I’m bored talking to. Picture them in thong butler -wham-- instamusement
Rude guy in checkout line in front of me, hehehee…next door neighbor, harhar.
My brothe—NO. OOF. NO.
PRESIDENT TRU----NNNNOOOOOOOOOOO WHY DID I START THIS
Maybe the AI thought you were looking for Dickies.
New from Chuck Tingle: Pounded in the Butt by my Thong Buttler
I had bough a couple jackets from Chinese companies on eBay and favorited the sellers - and for months my front page recommendations became a sea of skimpy men’s speedos and he like - very embarrassing till I realized how it had happened (I otherwise buy only used books).
A man’s man servant?
Really…whatever happened to this?
The blaklader one looks awesome, I am definitely getting one of those!
The second one (first Amazon link) looks like something from Sprokets
That guy is definitely going to need the Search Team…
Way sexier. I think? Yes. Anything now to stop picturing every one I see in a Buttler Thong.
Doesn’t show up for me when i do a search but i do get this in the results:
Interesting that they feel they have to note that the “Thong condition” is “Brand New Material” …
Why not? That kind of armor seems to work great for female barbarians and superheros.
I’ve eaten at that diner. You really should find a different one. But you won’t, because the rude staff is part of the experience.
Works just as well if, like me, you misread that as “thong butter”.
