Great thread! I have found too that the cargo pockets are a must have. I have some wool pants that were from England, but they’re almost like a felted wool. You can wash them, but I’m also constantly repairing them because they tear quite easily. Napier is the company name. AND the sizing they use is jacked up. You need about two sizes larger than you think. Still, they are a nice, soft, quiet, wool pant. I’d reeeeeeaaaaaaly like to find the kind of pant that Dave is asking about though. Sounds perfect.
I’ve always wondered about buying a set of wool pants something like four sizes too big and then washing and drying like normal to see if they would possibly shrink-to-fit.
