Hey! Where did my pants go?

I hate to say it guys... but I took a desk job. Consequently, I now have to wear a conservative suit to work and actually look respectable. Whether or not I actually am is another story. So, I need some advice regarding apparel. I would like to start riding my bike to work in the next few months and am looking for what you recommend for a pair of pants. I already have a pair of touring pants and waterproof pants. What I am looking for is a relatively lightweight pair of pants that are easy to take on and off at the office and look like I drove my cage to the office. Your thoughts?

I use Olympia overpats. They have a full length zipper for easy on/off.

Armored or not?

I wear FS overpants most days, although I have relied on FrogTogs from time to time as business-wear protectors.
