    Hey, love the forum! you guys are a ton of help

    I am looking for a pair of slim wool pants to wear as something other than jeans. I have not had much luck and am thinking my best bet would be the thift store then get them tailored. I found a pair I really like online in the picture below but the site does not carry them.. just the top!!

    Wings + Horns have some nice wool cotton chinos. If you find some +J tapered flannel trousers, they also fit quite slim.

    MrPorter has some. They err on the dressy side, but you can always dress down gray wool trousers with the shoes.

    +10000. Amazing construction and made in the USA of great fabrics. Check out the affiliate Epaulet thread for great photos and rave reviews.

    Epaulet offers a great cut and unique fabrics, but the two pairs I own actually haven't aged well.

    Sub-$100, try Hackett on Yoox or D.S. Dundee on Clad. Either of these are dressier than the usual offerings by Opening Ceremony or Tres Bien, but they still pair well with casual footwear.

    Wow, really? Out of curiosity, which pairs? I have 7 pairs of different rivet chinos/Walt wool pants and have never encountered any issues. But I just wear mine around the office and don't wear them too hard. Sorry to hear that.

    I own a pair of brown wool tweed and a pair of gunmetal cords, both Walts. Back pocket stitching on the wool tweed trousers has come apart in a manner that can't be cheaply repaired and the white pocket fabric now peeks through. On the cords, the fabric around the inner thighs and crotch is wearing thin - any day this could be a source of embarrassment. Both are less than two years old and worn less than 30 times.

    Same as you, these are cube-dweller pants. Luck of the draw, I suppose.
