Had my Lollipopman outfit on today, 6hrs PW a driveway. Nearly always wear Snickers with knee-pads, need them because I'm always kneeling in the back of van because of the height out the ground.

I wear shorts, all year round. I once asked the postie why they did this and he explained that the theory is, if your legs get wet they will dry out where trousers would stay wet the rest of the day. Seems to work and you don't really feel the cold on your legs.

To be fair, they are in and out of their vans every few minutes with their heaters blasting hot air at them, also how long are their shifts ? (local postie pointed this out)...bit different for us - some jobs take me half a day (I work s-l-o-w-l-y 😉)...by which time my icicles would have icicles! I agree shorts all day long Apr-Sept but not when it's 7-8c or lower...in winter I often wear a 'base layer' which has a dual purpose you stay toasty but if your trouser leg does get a little wet it doesn't migrate to your skin - hence you don't notice it. Type of trouser and material makes a massive different, cordura type & close weave type fabrics can repel all but heavy rain - flat thin cotton tend to get soaked and stays that way all day - which is never a pleasant thing

I’ve worn shorts so long I don’t even love the feel of wearing trousers anymore 🤷🏼‍♂️

I’ve been looking at the scruffs trousers recently, they look smart, and they do slim fit, which look smarter than big baggy trousers on me.

Snickers for me. I find they fit like a glove although very expensive

I went right off the usual work trousers to many pockets that aren't needed also too much polyester , I prefer a cotton trouser I bought some FXD ones last year and they are decent, but hard to get the right size for me 29" waist & 29" leg ideally
