I'm sold, just ordered them.

Good man.  You'll love them, then you'll want to order the grey ones when they drop as well.

Yeah Giles is right about the feel of the fabric.  It's similar in feel to the black sueded duck canvas chinos by Left Field if you happen to own a pair of those.

I think so.  Although I've never actually tried wearing them out and aboit in the summer.

I wore mine regularly this summer in Vermont.

What makes those work pants rather than chinos? Fabric weight?

Chino is a fabric, not a style of pant.  Pants made out of Chino cloth tend to get referred to as Chino's:

These arrived today. And when I put them on I promptly filled out the form for they grey ones. These pants are great, I really like the whipcord fabric.

This stuff just sells itself, doesn't it?

Glad you like them.  Looking forward to the greys as well.

I strongly prefer button over zipper fly and that is the only reason I refrain from these. Any reason for keeping these zipper-only?

Without meaning to seem facetious, because they are work pants. Pretty much all IH work pants have zippers.

I'm fairly certain that pretty much all work pants in general have zippers.

I don't suppose IH has any plans on making a more tapered cut of the 816, like closer to the 555 or 777? I really want to try out these work pants but the current measurements would make them incredibly baggy on my frame. I'm assuming they're deliberately cut this way to provide ease of movement while working.

IHSH-107 red size L
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-86 green size XL

The 'button over zipper' preference in my case isn't style driven, it is purely functional. As I age, 53 now, I find I sometimes leave my fly unzipped and it annoys me inmensely. This never happened before the last 10 or so years. Maybe it is correlated with belly expansion as it now doesn't permit an unobstructed view of my fly.

 I've discovered that button fly bottoms are absent-minded proof! As a bonus, they look nicer to me.
Maybe I'm not the only one who would benefit from a work pant with button fly?  Just a thought.
As for me, I'm gradually working through my closet and replacing every zip bottom for a button one!
