If your legs are sensitive to scratchy material, I think the smoother Crispaire is a great option.

Contemplating 680g cavalry twill for trousers, is this even a good idea?

There are some denimheads over at SW&D who have rocked 21oz raw denim, what is the purpose of the trousers? Perhaps for adventuring/motorcycling, seems a little excessive for a chino-type pant.

Purpose is for cold weather, to wear with odd jackets, to be used throughout the week. The color is so rich though, just can't say no

The H&S stuff seems a bit fragile to me. I never cared for too many of their fabrics, while an English mill their fabrics seem kinda of lux and Italian to me. I really like the roughers Minnis stuff for whatever reason. As for Mohair, like that Tonic fabric, but it is really expensive. I also owned a RTW suit in cotton/mohair and it began to fade really badly. I think it was due to more of the cotton mix in the blend.

How about plain twill, serge, or gabardine? Looks less like jeans and you can still get the texture and weight.

IIRC NSM charged me 100-150 euro/meter for Tonik. You think that is very expensive?
post #4073 of 11421
I recall it being much more than that.

I just thought tan & brown cavalry twill trousers to be "proper classics" for cold weather. I'm not opposed to the options you mention, my only concern with the fabric i mention is the viability of using such a heavy weight for trousers.

I see nothing wrong with really heavy trousers or anything really. Heavy fabrics rule.

You guys act like it gets -40 degrees in NYC.
post #4078 of 11421
I don't care how cold it gets, I think heavy fabric just looks awesome. It gets windy and in the 20's. Pretty cold. I feel drafts come through my 600 gram overcoat and my suit.

That's what the 1kg everest cashmere is for! wink.gif

Winter is so weird. I will be wearing over 1000 grams of cloth walking around, feel cold, yet still be sweating under it all. There is no winning really.
