Good day Styleforum,
After much thinking and some very superficial investigation on the matter, I would like to hear the opinion from the more knowledgeable members.
Would you objectively consider wool trousers superior to any other kind of material slacks? Disregarding aesthetics for once.
Take for example my situation. I am a college student working part time in southern US. Hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and dry all year round. Day starts at around 7 am and ends 11 pm. While I don't mind washing my clothes, if I could save the extra dollars it takes to buy detergent, the 10 minutes it takes to set up the washing machine and picking up the clothing, and the hour spent ironing clothing, why not?
My idea is instead of wearing chinos, as I usually do, begin wearing wool trousers. Wear them throughout the season while only brushing, airing and steaming (supposing they don't get stained). In that case, I would only be paying the dry cleaner once every six months (roughly, from what I've read around), steaming is a quick process, and after a long day I can simply hang and brush my pants in a matter of seconds. Call it lazy, but I view it as time efficient.
Would you have any experience of your own on the matter? Thoughts?
