I'm looking for a men's pattern for cargo shorts. You know, they are the style you can easily find in a big box store and has all this pockets on the legs for stuff when you camp or fish (but people usually just wear them around for normal life.) Sort of like these here at ll bean.

My hubby is between sizes and it's impossible to find a pair that are a decent fit. They are for casual wear and for hiking/camping/etc.

Jalie had a men's cargo shorts/pants pattern (#977) that sadly seems out of print now. You might be able to find it on etsy or ebay.

There's a Green Pepper pattern available.
Sunset Bay Cargo Shorts

Hope these help in your search. :)

I was looking for some on Jalie... I thought they'd have a pattern for sure. But the Sunset Bay ones look like an interesting option!! Thanks!

I've found the simplicity 3891 before, but it's not in print (but likely to be able to get on ebay or something), but it wasn't quite the right thing.

McCall's 2815 is OOP too and are basic drawstring pants.

The other is a women's pattern.

I was looking for something closer to the ll bean shorts with a zipper and more fitted details.

Thanks though! :)

KwikSew 4045

And I have an uncut copy of KwikSew 2820, which has front patch pockets instead of front slant pockets and an elastic back waist. If you want it, let me know in this thread and I'll send you a PM. You can have it for the cost of shipping.

Thanks! KS4045 is a great option. I think the other one isn't quite what I was thinking.

Funny how difficult it is to find men's patterns. It's such a basic pair of shorts, if it were women's there'd be 37 versions.

I think I saw somewhere that Jalie would be bringing back their cargo pants as a downloadable pattern.
