Help with scrubs...please!

  1. Ok I have a question. I am looking for scrubs. I would really like to find a pair of scrub pants that I can wear a belt with. Does anyone know any scrub pants with belt loops? I have a hard time keeping the drawstring types tight enough. They always seems to become loose while I'm working. I thought maybe a belt type pant would be better.

    I have seen the aviator scrubs but the facility I work for does not allow any emblems on the scrubs. From the looks of this brand, they all have the aviator logo on the chest of the scrub top. Can anyone confirm or tell me otherwise.

    Thanks for any help that you guys can give me.

    For what it's worth, the logo on aviators is easily removed.

    Also, Laundau's men's scrub line has a tighter elastic waist with an inside drawstring. They're very secure, and this is from someone whose scrub pants fell halfway down while transporting a preemie to surgery... in the hall....

    Thanks to both of you. I may try one or both of those ideas

    Landau has scrubs with belt loops; I was just glancing through a catalog this AM and saw them.

    Dickies scrubs seem to be working for me. The pants with the cargo pockets are pretty good.

    one word: suspenders

    I'm dead serious...I like packing my pockets, and I'd be hitching up my bottoms constantly without my trusty "Lord Melbies"

    Why wear scrubs at all? I dunno where you work but at least at my hospital they don't really seem to care what kind of pants you wear. In my first role before I was licensed I had to wear white pants, and in order to be able to wear a belt and stop hearing comments about my boxers, I started wearing Dickie's painter pants. $18 at walmart if I recall... still wear those sometimes since they still fit. I also wear EMS-style ("whacker") pants which have the huge cargo pockets to hold my stethoscope and other stuff as well as the loops to hold my shears. Very nice. Also has beltloops. Also has the stuff inside the waist that keeps your shirt from untucking (which I guess would be bad if you don't tuck, but I assume you do or would with a belt anyway).

    I prefer pants that don't leave me feeling like I'm flapping in the wind if ya know what I mean... those pajama-like scrubs might be ok for the ladies, but I like a little more support than that.

    I wear cheap twill pants from Walmart. The white ones are not see-through, they look just like scrub pants and are only $9.00 a pair.

    The cheap ones fall off of me and don't stay up. I wear the Laundau ones with the elastic waistband and the ties. They work so much better. I spurge and get the cargo style with pockets down the legs.
