post #15436 of 31674

As someone who is just starting to get into wool pants, I was wondering if Epaulet had a model or specific walt trouser that could be described as all season. Right now, I can't imagine getting new trousers every season, and want to start my wool pant collection with something that will be durable across multiple season.

 

Thanks!

Wool pants are a good thing to have in your closet. Wool is a fantastic fiber. Very versatile and resilient.

I think you'll find that there are trousers made with tropical weight wool, such as the super 120 Walts, that are described as three-season and can be worn in even fairly hot temperatures. Of course, there's linen for when it gets really hot. I think it would be hard to go wrong with the 120s in blue or grey. Since you are in Denver, you probably want to consider a heavier weight wool for cold weather, as well. Flannel should work here, or you might even consider one of the tweeds. The Donegal tweed has a very smooth finish and so is probably more conservative, while the Shetland tweed is more textured and possibly more interesting. IMO, Mike and Adele and the crew do a very good job of picking out great tweeds that are different, but by no means novelty fabrics.

You are probably already aware that you will want to let wool trousers rest between wearings, so you should probably consider working up to having at least a few pairs of the various weights. This will extend the life of all the trousers and you should be able to get a lot of good wear out of them. But start by working one pair into your rotation and then you can see what you think.

Not that I'm saying Rob is doing this on purpose, or maybe he is, but I've noticed in a tonne of menswear blog pics recently that people are twisting their ties to have both flaps shown. 

 

Is this a new thing? I've noticed Matt has done it too. But I've seen it from many other sources too. Whats the deal, yo?

Haha. Other people can weigh in, but I simply learned how to tie a tie from my left-handed father, who tied his right-handed. So I tend to twist a little more than I should. biggrin.gif

I dig a bit of sprezzatura. Unless you're an exec in the office, there is power in personality.

Looks like it might just have been a little windy? Anyway, I am impressed with the blue shirt/blue Rivets combo here. Surprisingly effective.

I wish I culd say it was to be clever, or #menswear, or even like Matt (cause I think he looks cool) but I was hoestly just lazy running out of the house this morning for a meeting I was late for (that never happened cause the guy who swore he would be in cause he wasn't Jewish, took off). ffffuuuu.gif So I took the opportunity to stop by Orchard St, and indulge in the great bad habit I have. Unfortunately no new digs...yet.

In addition to the Super 120s, I would recommend the lighter weight flannels and the merino wools as "year round" options. Keep an eye out for the next round of "factory finds" - in the last round there were several options that would probably work great for you.

Good points. And factory finds also offer good pricing. Buy be sure you know your size, of course, since factory finds are final sale as I recall.
