to everyone here i am searching for outdoorwear fabrics in particular waffle knit thermal fabrics in more neutral tones heather grey, heather blue, heather green, OD green, tan/brown, burnt orange. And yes before anyone asks i am a guy i just happen to be vertically challenged in the legs, so i have to hem my own clothes as my wife doesn't know how to sew, So if i don't do it i have to pay for it in town. Thank you in advanced for any good suggestions.

I thought this would be easy, but apparently it isn't. It seems all the thermals now have cute little kitties or princess crowns on them. Good grief, can we please leave the classics alone! I give up - sorry!

I've seen some basic waffle knits at Fabricland, generally in the knit-ends bin. Even if you end up with colours like yellow or pink, you could try over-dying with a commercially available dye that has instructions for dying in the washing machine.

Thanks so much for your response i had thought about just white or heather grey and adding color but even thats hard to find in heavy weight fabric. I just wanna make clothes for myself, being short sucks i have to buy clothes that i like, rip them apart and re-stitch them so they fit .OY

I have the opposite problem, I'm a tall woman with narrow hips.  Pants are huge and baggy at the hips, and a few inches too short.  Ya gotta sew if you have a non-standard body!
