Apparently etutee has gotten good results from Ercole. To me that's resounding endorsement.

You mean compared to other materials or compared to jackets? Cotton wears out faster than wool. The only wool trousers that wore quickly for me was a soft wool/cashmere blend. The rest outlive my desire to wear them.
If compared to jackets, then probably yes. But that is a long time horizon.
