Both are only strictly for the summer right? 

They are both light weight.

The open-weave are just that - rougher because they are open-weave and will feel a little more breezy. The tropical wool are very light weight and will be very smooth.

Open Weave = better in a humid heat

Tropical Wool = better in a dry heat

Any particular fit or cut for people with bigger thighs? I have a 32 inch waist and about 25-26 inch thighs at about 5'11".

Can you get away with wearing open weave or tropical wool in 40 degrees Fahrenheit? Just trying to gauge how versatile these material are under different seasons.

40F would be pushing it on both unless you run pretty hot. They are designed for really warm weather.

At 40F, Im wearing flannels.

Haha...Yes, I perspire easily....So I guess this type of material is perfect for me.

I think he sells a "four season" fabric that may be better if you're really trying to get that much use out of them--though I don't have a pair.

You can... but will be FREEZING cold from the waist down.

Seasonal fabrics are great, use them as such.

The Made in USA cut is roomier in the thighs than the Italy cut, but I think your thighs will be too big, even if you size up in the waist.   Here are the size charts for the pants:

^^Just a quick note that the above measurements are indicative of the width of the trousers, with the measurement being taken from side-seam to side-seam with the trousers laid flat.

So, in essence, if you want to know the diameter of the trouser leg, multiply the "thigh" measurement by two.

Ya I doubt any of these will fit without suffocating the jewels.

Wish there were some quality trousers that would fit me well

You may wish to investigate sizing up in Epaulet's "Rudy" fit pants and then taking in the waist. I find the brand to be very comparable in quality.
