I'll make this one quick and painless. Wool trousers are a necessity for F/W - it's that simple. Getting high quality wool trousers for $50 is a flat out coup. L.L. Bean's Town and Field pant, one of the best value pants on the market, disappeared thanks to seasonal shifts, but are now back online. And not only are they back, but they're on sale (and with free shipping by the way). A full grip of waist sizes are available for the charcoal joints and with complimentary cuff service there is no reason not to pick up a pair, or two for that matter. There was a good deal of press on these when they first came out, so for a refresher course you can read up on them here, complete with insight from Don Rogers, L.L. Bean's product line manager. He's the guy who created the pants, so you know, he's got things pretty much on lock. As a side note: these pants are more or less identical to a pair of Cucinelli trousers I own (straight leg, back flap pockets, etc.) and those pants were NOT 50 bones. And they were even on sale. You get the picture.
