    This is my first pair of these pants. They fit great -- really like the custom hem length option. Will buy again for sure based on quality and value. Will be a mainstay of my travel wardrobe.

    Great trousers - 3/24/2014

    I have a pair of these trousers in each of the three colours available. I have had them for 10 months and found them to be suitable in most temperatures except very hot weather as their multiple pockets make them rather heavy around the thighs. But what trousers are suitable all year round anyway? They look good with a polo shirt.

    Great Hiking Pants - 2/6/2014
    By: from Albuquerque, NM

    I am a Orvis nut and just love their equipment and clothing. These pants are another great offering.I love the fact Orvis will tailor the length of the pants. I am a size 33 1/4 leg. There are not many companies that can provide such a great quality item that are tailored to fit. The pants are really comfortable, good amount of pockets, and look smart. Great job!

Bush Poplin

Cool, crisp cotton fabric that holds up under pressure

You'll enjoy the casual comfort and style of our men's cotton drawstring trousers.Bush Poplin is a microcanvas, consisting of yarns half the thickness often used in its beefier cousin, Orvis Rhinohide, yet nearly equal in it's durability. Bush Polin is a light and soft natural fabric able to withstand years of wear and washings, yet remains crisp and neat.

Great for Warm Weather Wear

Each yarn of Bush Poplin is composed of several fibers twisted tightly together, resulting in a fabric that is abrasion- resistant, yet feels cool and relatively weightless on the body. Maximizing cotton's natural advantages, the basic microcanvas weave consists of a balanced, interlocking pattern of mid-weight yarns on the warp (vertical weave) and slightly slimmer yarns on the weft (horizontal weave). This weave maximizes yarn strength while allowing for a considerable measure of breathability. You'll never feel stifled, even in the most wilting tropical heat.

The Traditional Safari Attire for Your World Adventures

Cotton poplin was the preferred fabric used by British colonists when on safari. Our collection offers the timeless and classic style of this traditional attire. Testament to poplin's versatile, rugged characteristics, it comprised the bulk of the fabrics used on all fronts during World War II. For the U.S. military, poplin fabrics struck the best balance between comfort, durability and crisp uniformity, holding up well to extensive field abuse and thousands of industrial-strength washings yet still presenting well in review. A 5-oz. cotton microcanvas, Bush Poplin is known for its comfort in warmer conditions, exceptional travel-worthiness, and durability.
