    I always wish I dressed better but I can never be bothered to get around to it.

    Shopping for clothes is so boring. Getting jeans taken in or whatever.

    The boring but nonetheless correct answer is wool trousers (I do mean 95-100% wool, some elastane is acceptable I guess though wool has natural stretch anyway) - yeah, they do have to go to the dry-cleaners from time to time but if you hang them up, give them a brush and a hot iron then you can get quite a few wears out of them.

    Numerous companies sell them and you can get pretty good clearance deals. A lot of the time it's variations on blue, grey and black but other colours certainly come up. Obviously a pinstripe with a t-shirt is a bit of a statement, but they can definitely be worn casually as long as the ankle is tapered a bit (and you can get that alteration pretty easily if it's not already on point).

    I actually have machine washable wool flannels but they're a bit harder to come by. Jaeger tried it a couple of years back.

    Wool breathes, insulates when necessary (admittedly there is little real winter weight tailoring off the peg), and performs pretty well in wet conditions. It's what a lot of technical gear is made from.

    You might be right. Wool and linen. That's my future it seems. Thank you. Sensible advice.

    If you're going wool, go merino.
