This pattern from 2005 has been discontinued. The view A pants sit at the waist and have straight, wide legs, two side pockets and a centre front zip. I have made them as casual pants for summer in a light khaki cotton twill with corozo buttons at the waist. I omitted the cuffs and added belt loops as they could be useful.
These are intended to be hot weather, expedition pants for casual everyday wear in hot climates. It is too early to say how they will perform - whether they will stretch or shrink, for example. At present they fit well and I have high hopes for them.
