Those original wrangler jeans with the plastic wrangler patch on the back are sweet. Long lasting denim, like the jagged edge jeans (made in usa) Ive had for 20 years.
Another alternative would be these Prison Blues ("made on the inside, to be worn on the outside"), they`re built like the old-school Levis and Wranglers that we remember from the `50s and `60s.
I think I use my outdoor clothing a little different than most.
Mt. Sill? Swiss arete?
Heck yeah, great route! Climbed it in winter clothing(probably in July or August), was freeeezing, then when we were doing the ridgeline traverse ran into Peter Croft in shorts and a t-shirt(I think hed already ticked off a couple 14ers that morning lol). If you haven't climbed the east buttress or east face of mt. whitney(which has gained 11 feet of elevation in the past 22 years), check them out. Take some time off from work and spend a few days at iceberg lake(or a week, fishhook arete on nearby mt. russell is also accessible from iceberg lake). Also check out The Needles (my fave) north of Kernville. Black magic>magic dragon, white punks on dope, imaginary voyage, igor unchained, thin ice(some of my faves from easier to more difficult). Dome rock (5 miles from the needles) is a great warm up for the needles. Cheers and climb on!
Very cool! We wanted to do a traverse of the other 14ers, but we ran out of food getting caught in white out and heavy snow hiking up in August. My long time climbing partner is diabetic so we had to bail. I do want to do the East Buttress and the Fresh Air Traverse. Looks like a lot of fun. We did Matthes Crest a month later. Good stuff. Easy climbing on a knife edge and spectacular views.
I like dickies and carhartt also. Have a few old duxbak coats that I love and they don't make that brand anymore. For boots its keen or muck when its wet. Polar king gear is warm as hell and I always keep a pair of walls coveralls in the truck because they are warm but not so warm that sweats running down your crack if stuck in the boonies without cell coverage. When I was a teen I think I was stuck in every ditich in posey county indiana. Posey county is famous for woody on cheers being the posey county arm wrestling champ on a show lol,
