When I purchased via gilt.com final sale, I thought these were cotton chino pants. They are a heavy weight wool twill. Very nice, fit well, seem to be a true 40. Just not what I need currently. Wanting to sell/ship at my cost.
For sale: $65 each shipped CONUS (Paypal).
On edit: To answer two questions sent via PM.
-The pants are made in Italy.
-The pants are definitely not a summer weight. I'd say they're similar in weight to a medium weight flannel.
