Fisherman pants

Post by vanquisher91 » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:06 am

I was searching for these on google and came up with a huge list of foreign retailers and have no clue who to buy them from. I was wondering if anyone has bought a pair and if they could recommend a retailer for me? I don't want to spend more than $40 US on them.

Maybe its time to give up fishing and make a greater commitment to Buddhism?

Fisherman pants are popular among meditators as they are very light and thin.
Thai fisherman pants are lightweight unisex trousers that are made very wide in the waist, one size fits all. The additional material is wrapped around the waist and tied to form a belt. They are usually made of cotton or rayon. Although traditionally used by fishermen in Thailand, they have become popular among others for casual, beach, and exercise wear as well as for backpackers and pregnancy.

Thai fisherman pants are nearly identical to the traditional attire of Intha males, who live on Inlay Lake of Myanmar. They are known in Burmese as Shan baun-mi.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
