Utility Chaps Pant Overalls

Half the pants for twice the price. Chaps for chaps...or chapettes.

Overalls are over all.  What if you just needed some additional protection and coverage in the exposed work regions?

Here is the chaps pant. Milled out and parsed to the essential elements needed fo withstand heavy work and provide a comfortable working environment.

When you need a place to wipe off that paint, polyurethane glue or roofing tar you just got on your hands,  plant it on your chaps, reserve your sleeves for your runny nose.

Also available with the extended bib option if you are really messy.

Step 1: Honeydewit pants...

Here are photos of my "work" pants as I do odd jobs around the house.

They are a comfortable pair of knakis that real men don't seem to want to toss out(like my sweatshirts) and serendipiously situated itself to be the sacrificial wiping rag on numerous occasions.

From statistical analysis we can determine the pattern of wear or use on the pair of pants.

Yup, chaps seem to be the solution for our problem( there really is no problem).

I tried using an apron, especially when doing some paper mache projects, you really can't get up and down without the apron not falling in the right place.  The weight of the apron hangs on the neck band and I found it uncomfortable.

In doing stuff requiring you to get on your knees, I'm talking about plumbing or gardening but work at the office with the boss also applies, I have not found a comfortable pair of kneepads.  Yes, kneecaps sweat and elastic retaining bands are restrictive and cut off circulation.  Attach them too loose and they never fall in the right place when your knees hit the floor.

So with that in mind, is the the design considerations for our chaps overalls.

Nice work! I think your denim texture looks cool.
