Guys

I've worn chinos for all my working career but want to try something more dress hence thinking of wool pants. I'm looking for wool pants that don't give out too much static in the winter or summer months. Which ones should I consider?

I'm near a Brooks brother outlet which has the 346 line at 2 pants for $179. They are lighter pants for the spring but I would not mind wearing them in winter too as I'm sure they'll be as warm as the Advantage chinos i've been wearing

Any other pants I should consider in-store or online or is BB a fine pair of pants for this price?

Also, how long would these pants typically last in a clean office environment when worn twice a week? And how often do you think I'll need to dry clean them?

Thanks

BB is typically good value for your money, something you will also want to consider is fit based on your body type. After trying numerous pants I found Hugo Boss Parkway to my liking as they are trim but not tight. HB does not get much love around here.
I've seen positive comments on Howard Yount.

I have a very slim frame and slim legs - my pants size is 32x34. From your comments, it seems Hugo boss would be perfect for me
