Wool trousers come in many weaves and colours. They work with most things chinos work with but they look sharper. Dressy and formal, or contemporary and casual they deserve a place in your wardrobe. Here are five failsafe ways to wear them…
Made from a textured wool with a touch of cashmere, these have been designed with tailoring in mind. The neat pressfolds and straight-leg fit make them ideal for wearing with a blazer.
In a lightweight wool, these trousers are cut straight down the leg with an adjustable drawstring waistband. The front pleat keeps them from looking too casual, so you can wear them as easily with a blazer as with a shearling jacket.
In a soft, stretch wool-cotton blend, with an elasticated drawstring waist, these grey and navy trousers are high on the comfort scale. The subtle check print eschews formality and means they'll work well with knitwear.
These dove grey trousers are made from 100% Italian wool. Their higher rise and four forward-facing pleats were made for formal occasions. Break from the norm and team with a nehru-collar jacket for a modern take on the trend.
