The scratchiness and whether it is an issue sort of depends on the person IMO. I have no real issue with it personally, but it definitely couldn't hurt for him to try a pair of Fresco trousers before ordering anything in bulk.
I'd also add Kerry Knoll for linen / wool blends as it is a very cost effective option. I have a suit made up in it and absolutely love the fabric. Will probably get some dove grey trousers in the same linen / wool (45/55 I believe) for next summer.
+1 I get mine half lined and sure, a little conscious of it for the first few wearings but then it's fine. All cloth gets softer with wear.
Fresco fact: Had a motorcycle accident in a Fresco suit (10 oz) recently. Busted up my knee. Apart from a little blood that washed out the pants were undamaged.
