Never one to ignore a reason to buy some new fabric, I plan on rectifying this omission soon. Although I’ve made (and will make) many cotton and linen pants, there’s no question in my mind that wool is the preeminently perfect fabric for pants, even in warm weather. Wool sheds wrinkles and tends not to cling, all while pressing beautifully. It’s amazing how silken and resilient a very fine woolen can be, and how lightweight. Many people have never seen or touched really good quality woolens, in which these virtues are even more noticeable than in the best shirting cottons, simply because they’re so expensive.

For example, unless I’ve decided to use an on-seam pocket and want an outlet, I always cut my fronts without any front pocket shaping—even if I think I’m sure which other pocket I want to use.
