so there I was wearing my pants on my head...

last night I got my wife to help me destroy a pair of (very) old cycling knicks (lycra shorts).

With some creative cutting and unstitching one leg was converted into a balaclava/face mask.

Tested it this morning. Worked a treat in the cold.

Old shorts converted to a balaclava? How'd you get the odor out of the fabric? ;)

All kidding aside, great old fashioned ingenuity.

they were 12 year old Pearl Izumis (the heavy fabric ones)

I only wear bibs now and the chamois was cut out and burned before they went over my head...

and before you ask... my wife washed them.

quite a few times.
