Since wool pants are gonna be pretty big this year I thought I'd start a thread. Any particular good brands? Which colour is the most versatile?
Wool pants general.
Raf Simons, Acne, Paul Smith, Jil Sander and NN07 all do some nice trousers. For more formal stuff check out Lanvin, Margeila, Boglioli and Incotex.
I realized today that over half my pants are some form of wool. I'm honestly surprised at how versatile of a material it can be.
Hey dad, how's work?
What you meant to say is gray and black
I own three pairs of Acne jeans but the only pants I have are shitty poly/cotton ones from Marks & Spencer. I need to cop some decent trousers. What should I get that's similar to the Ace/Max fit of Acne?
Don't buy Acne. Get some Jil trousers or even Patrick Ervell of you want similar price but much better quality.
>tfw can't wear wool pants because of pets
Is it just wool blended pants that pick up hairs? I need some that don't, the ones in my pic look like they wouldn't pick anything up but Idk what material they are (or even what they are).
Maybe on this board it's a 'meme brand' but they actually put out some of the best fitting/looking basic stuff. Sure the quality isn't the best but it isn't the worst either. They are goat brand for denim/outerwear and a lot of their accessories/leather goods are made in Italy.
No they aren't everything is made in China. Do you actually own any Acne?
>goat brand for denim/outerwear
Should've just stopped reading there.
im not that guy but are you an idiot? literally go try on some of their clothes, they're comfortable but they look like crap and regardless of where specifically a given garment of theirs is made the quality is invariably unacceptably low for the price point
if you want to buy a pair of used acne jeans on ebay for fifty dollars that's a different story
First off could you please answer the question of do you actually own any Acne or not. Second tees,denim,knits,sweats,outerwear, most shoes are made in China. Ver very few items are made in Italy and even then it's in the shittiest and most depraved factories. If you're buying leather goods from Acne there is already no hope for you, so you might as well keep buying your derivative shit.
ITT: one guy desperately defends Acne to try and convince himself that his dope new Acne Aces were not bought in vain
Erm m8 most of acne stuff is made in Europe. I've got two pairs of jeans, one is made in Turkey and the other in Albania. I've got a scarf which is made in Italy, tshirts from Portugal and I did briefly own some knitwear which I returned because it was too small (I think that was Turkey as well).
Acne jeans are probably the best fitting jeans I've owned. Tshirts are great as well. No gripes about the scarf. Knitwear was okay, weird fitting was really short. I don't get all the hate for Acne on this board. Maybe you're just trolling?
>Most high fashion stuff
That depends almost purely on what brand and what product you're talking about. A Seraphin jacket that's meant to be buttery soft from the moment you first wear it? Sure, milled calfskin will be crazy delicate. A thick RRL vegetable-tanned moto? That'll take quite a while to break in, much less break down.
They're out of stock, but varusteleka had some Finnish M/65 pants, that in the lighter, summer variation are GOAT. Managed to get them perfect fit, don't need a belt or anything, and they're jsut the right length. Might post pic later if I have time/find a better mirror and lighting.
Acne being a meme is the biggest meme of all, these people jumped on the bandwagon and started insulting the brand when there was next to no talk like this just months before. It's funny.
Acne is far from anything special, but I'm willing the bet the majority of shit-talkers don't even know what it stands for, let alone have actually handled it
But they'll probably go great with this year's trend ;^)
I actually meant what the acronym ACNE stands for, I was implying that you don't know anything about the brand and clearly I was right.
Don't know why you're assuming I was talking about some silly kitschy rubbish.
i mean this honestly there are rarely anyb wool trousers that are at that price point due to material. even uniqlo and h&m start around 40 pounds and they're shit.
Tjhat being said dig through sales. I bought what essentially is these for 30 quid at Jigsaw >>9424217, and if you're willing to add 10 or 20 thats cos nwt and the quality is worth about the price.
criticism for acne has always existed. I have tons of thrifted acne and while the fits are usually pretty good it's all made in Turkey or China and I don't know why anyone would pay top dollar for it. It's been like that since day one. Even now, walk into the showroom, put on an 800 pound coat and check to see it was made in Turkey or some shit.
Mostly concept and execution. Though Acne's materials and construction are pretty par for the course, they're a lot more progressive in many of their designs, excepting their carry over styles, of course. They've built a reliable business on leather outerwear that is deliberately left of center and make a wide range of footwear that spans from classic, easily worn styles to very aggressive styles that trade heavily on novelty. It's a bit like Alexander Wang; taking very ready-to-wear ideas but producing and pricing them at a contemporary price point so that people who are design-oriented, but not true luxury ready-to-wear customers can get into them.
Nothing wrong with it, just a particular approach to design and merchandising that, for some reason, seems to rub a certain group of people the wrong way.
I'm selling cdgh from 1995 black wool in size 31 ish for 220$ shipped(i won't be making any money). Really amazing however my style doesn't accommodate them. Only selling here
You might consider getting trousers tailor made.
I buy suiting wool from a local fabric store and give it to my tailor. The trousers he makes fit perfectly - and it's inexpensive (however this will also depend a lot on which fabric you buy).
just copped, what do you guys reckon?
Mr Porter's delivery is so good, guaranteed next day delivery and free returns that they come and collect from you
here's a photo of them on someone way better looking than me
they look a lot more grey in this photo, not sure what to expect
How do u pull off trousers without looking like a menswear/dadcore autist?

As this is an appropriate thread, I simply need some trousers that will last, and be fitting for both formal and sometimes informal events, although I doubt I'm going to be wearing them with sneakers. Of course, preferably cheap. Also, are Uniqlo shirts still terrible?
Well one pair are cropped so yes they are perfect.
Next pair are virgin wool and the fabric is super fine and breathable so again very nice for summer.
Next a more relaxed pant with a more traditional feel of wool but the fabric is still fairly thin so I don't expect them to be too hot.
Last I have some wool cargo pants which are very heavy and even in the winter I overheat in them.
So basically what it comes down to is how heavy the fabric is also how they are cut will also help a lot when it comes to heat. But to answer your question concisely yes wool pants can easily be worn in the summer unless you are in some extremely hot and arid environment.
Wool pants don't have a "style" there is not some universal way that only wool pants can be cut. I think what you meant was texture and the answer is yes there are plenty of fake wool pants out there but unless you have a problem with wool ethically speaking there isn't really a point considering they aren't usually very expensive. If you did mean style you are probably thinking similar to the pants posted ITT which are heavily tailored slim fit trousers any pair of fairly nice trousers and a visit to the local tailor can get you a pair of pants comparable to this>>9424209
I think navy and grey are the most versatile colors when it comes to wool/flannel trousers. Other colors that are nice are brown and green, especially during autumn.
As for brands, if your budget allows for it, Pantaloni Torino (PT01) makes fantastic trousers with many hand-sewn moments, great fit and good materials.
But flannel is a type of finish made from either wool or cotton.
I agree with this guy. If you're after wool-like pants, buy some friggin' wool pants.
>unless you have a problem with wool ethically speaking
Nail on the head

Someone cop I'm trying to buy some ccp pants
It depends on the style you want. Almost every brand and designer out there is making cropped pants right now but if you want a looser and more billowy look in the waist and thigh like in those pics you'll want some certain brands. Yohji and CDG are obvious answers but Rick also makes some really interesting cropped pants.
Decided to give it a try, r8 the fit
Okay here it is? Is it too daddy-esque, so to say?
The real question here; pleated or flat front?
Imo the only reason pleats went out was because so many young guys were insecure about dey dick and needed some tight fitting trousers. Pleats give you comfort, and the wimmin a nice suprise
You were what sneakers were made for. Casual, sport-ish outfits. A tailored pair of woolpants can work with sneakers, but those sneaker are far from being casual.
The shit linked in this thread, white grey sports sneakers or fucking New Balance look ridiculous with a fucking wool pants. You look as retarded as a guy who wears a pinstripe vest without a fitting pants. I get it, youre underage and have no sense for fashion. But one day you will realize how fucking retarded you looked.
