I spend all day at work squirming in a chair, so my pants get heavy wear. Cheap cotton khakis wear out quickly on the edges like the belt loops and pockets. I've decided for a variety of reasons to switch to wool trousers. However, I'm not convinced that pants that cost twice as much will wear out half as slowly, so I want to stick with low-end trousers for a while.
Expensive pants (Incotex, Zanella, Zegna, Borrelli, Barba, Valentini, RLPL etc) are worth it. I am not one of those guys that immediately buys into the "if it's more expensive, it's better" mantra but I can tell you that there is a significant difference between the good stuff and everything else, especially with wool. There are few things worst than a cheap wool garment, cheaply made. If you want to keep the price down, you can shop Brooks or JAB sales or ebay for mid priced decent trousers.
