Trousers flapping around

Been using duct tape for a couple o years now on my overalls up the legs.
Trousers start flapping in the wind and cause an itchy sensation on my legs.
I run a bead of duct tape around my thigh and ankle to keep the material tighter.
Has anybody been using some kind of garter???

They make metal clips for bicyclists you can use.

I think a good pair of mesh pants or over pants are called for here..

Velcro. You can get it in all sizes, colors and cut to length at most hardware stores. Easy on-off, no glue residue and cheap.

I have velcro-attaching reflective arm/leg bands that are meant for joggers/runners. Not only do they close up my pants legs but also serve as added safety gear at night.

They're not exactly this, but very similar:
