and I've been buying them since forever, 20-30 years? I'm pretty sure this was one of the original Mountain Khaki options, you were either buying these Tetons or the much heavier Alpines if you wanted MK shorts.
Are they phasing them out now? Doesn't seem to be much selection anymore especially in my size 38, Yeah, I know, all the newer performance, quick-dry, etc. clothes. But there is something wonderfully comfortable about these thick, 100% cotton twill shorts. I basically live in them three seasons. Sure, relaxed fit leaves some cloth hanging out in the wind, but I'm, you know, the guy who goes out hiking in them, big pockets to put a lot of stuff in, if needed. These aren't for the fashion runway.
