What does PTO-Approved Pant mean?

[ Edited ]

What does PTO-Approved Pant mean? I received a QVC email about the Gravel TSV with this title. Actually, I didn't even know the phrase was pertaining to the TSV when I read it. I didn't find out until I clicked on it and ended up on the QVC site. I have no idea what a PTO-approved pant is. Is this some expression? What does it mean?

Well in business PTO means "Paid Time Off". So maybe they are saying it is pants you wear when you are not at work?  That is the only meaning of PTO that I have heard.

In the old days, PTO stood for Parent Teacher Organization at your child's school.

Where I live it was called PTA for Parent Teacher Association.  There was even a popular song "Harper Valley PTA".  Never heard it called PTO, like above poster said.

The schools in West Texas had PTA. When we moved to a Hill Country town near San Antonio it was PTO. I have no idea why the distinction was made in the same state.
