    I got some slacks recently at Saks Off 5th that are "100% Fleece". I've always thought of fleece as fuzzy stuff for jackets and such, but these just seem like regular slacks material. So I was wondering...

    What exactly is this "fleece" stuff?

    And what setting should I use to iron it?

    What's the material - poly, wool, genuine herringbone...?

    That's what I was hoping you guys could help me with. [​IMG]

    The label says "100% WV Fleece". They're made by Zanella in Italy, if that helps.

    There should be a content label specifying the material.

    I can't think what 'wv' is off-hand -- maybe genuine West Virginia?

    I am monitoring this thread closely in the event of potential office application.

    I'll check for additional labels denoting material when I get home... I shall also check for application labels to see if these may function as office pants or not.

    Thanks, I appreciate that.

    I'll check back later to see what you find out.
