The Wool Trouser

Consider the wool trouser a cold weather alternative to your favorite chinos. There are a handful of great options this winter—Epaulet makes some sharp styles and Michael Bastian cut some tweed versions for Gant—but one of our favorites comes from L.L. Bean Signature. Inspired by a pair of pants from their archives, the trousers have vintage details like back button flap pockets and come in an offbeat, old school color. There's a fuzzy logic to the heathered forest green fabric—100% wool imported from a top Italian mill—a richness and depth, which makes it the perfect pairing to a winter wardrobe. Pull on some boots and a V-neck sweater with a denim jacket or knot up a silk knit tie and top it with a tweed blazer. After all, when simply putting on a pair of pants can both keep you warm and make you look like a well-dressed grown up on top of his game, we're all for it.
