    Is there a way to rectify the problem of "shiny" wool? I have an old pair of wool trousers that have taken up a slight sheen in the seat.

    Any reccomendations (aside from throw them out[​IMG])?

    Throw them out, works. And don't dry clean the next pair so often.

    Do a search for shiny or sheen. If I remember correctly, the answer was steam with a diluted vinegar solution. Or I could be totally wrong. Not sure. [​IMG]

    Hmm, didn't see that. Although j reccomended it for shine on the collar of a dress shirt.

    Anyone know if it'll work for trousers?

    I have the same problem on an Oxxford suit I got off of eBay. I'm going to likely return that, as both legs & the seat of the trousers shine like the sun.

    You could try brushing it.

    From your own description, they are old. It is a sign of age.
    Do you sit in a leather chair at work? I think this contributes to the shine compared to cloth chairs.
