Why aren't tweed trousers more popular?

    I have never experienced any problems with tweed trousers losing their shape. The ones I have are tight and virtually waterproof. Most of mine were purchased vintage, 30-40 years old at least. I have one pair of looser weave Holland and Holland and they are excellent as well.

    Cheers,

    I have some brown tweed herringbone trousers, my go-to choice with a Camel Hair Blazer. they are set up for braces.

    They itch and their warmth is not necessary in many climates.

    I have a pair of midnight blue donegal tweed trousers from O’Connell’s and I absolutley love them. They are substantial and warm but not too heavy and I think they create a flattering drape and image. Absolutley love them. I get a lot of compliments on them too.

    FYI, if anyone is interested in acquiring tweed trousers, I’ll be listing this Donegal Tweed pair on eBay tonight. I bought them a few years ago but with California weather, I've never worn them. Orvis size 40 and fully lined. :)

    I have the same style from Orvis:

    Mine are super heavy, they’re honestly warmer than corduroy

    Love the above two examples; have something similar from Orvis and wear them often.

    I think I’ll try flannel first, then tweed. Plain wool needs an upgrade in my opinion.

    I have several pairs of HEAVY tweed pants that I have been keeping for some reason. I will never wear them.
