I used to be a big cut off Dickies fan but...
1) Modern Dickies stuff is so shit. I have a set of cut off work pants that I made when I was about 18 (18 years ago) nd they are still going strong, a pair of modern premade shorts I have wore through in the arse after about 6 months.
2) I can't get on with the style of the pockets anymore. I never used to notice it but if you put a phone, wallet or allen key set in the front pocket and ride the pocket inevitably ends up flipped backwards and hanging down which just feels weird.
I tend to use mtb shorts for commuting or just faffing about rides, and have some good older black Fox shorts that are pretty good quality and a good cut (not baggy) and can pass as non-dad cargos similar to this
with the big plus being that you can run whatever lycra shorts under
Yeah they look good. Jeans style pockets for the win.
