If you feel like your old work pants aren't cutting it, check out Blaklader Brawny Pants. Designed specifically for tradespeople, they have a pair of utility pockets up top that can be used as nail pouches. These pockets have angled corners so fasteners won't get stuck, and they can be tucked into the regular pockets when not in use. The pants also have kneepad pockets in the legs, a hammer loop, and special pockets for phones, pencils, and other tools. All seams are triple-stitched, and wear areas are reinforced with Cordura.
