In 2007 brooks brothers launched black fleece; a collection designed to explore a fashion-forward perspective on classic american style. Brooks brothers enlisted the talents of 2006 cfda winning designer thom browne who developed black fleece into its own unique voice: innovative and modern, yet rooted in the two hundred year history of brooks brothers. These brand new, sample pants, tags attached, are 100% wool with a bemberg lining. These mens pants have a size 32" waist and an unfinished bottom (inseam: 48.5"). Do not miss out on owning a pair of pants from award-winning designer thom browne who winks and nods at the boundaries of the american aesthetic in his distinctly original style.
These pants retailed for $600 new. The lining, as stated above, is a bemberg cupro lining. The lining of your pants, for example, is key. If a polyester lining is used inside your pants, having a breathable wool exterior becomes pointless. Polyester does not allow moisture to escape and evaporate, turning your pants into a sauna.
Regardless of how nice or high grade the fabric is, with a polyester lining, you will not benefit from wool's amazing qualities. Wearing a polyester lining, is like wearing a plastic bag under your pants, and since lining is what is in contact with most of your body, if the material used is not breathable your temperature will quickly rise. The best option for lining is a material called cupro. Bemberg, a high-quality brand of cupro produced in japan, is breathable, light, durable, and with a silky touch that looks and feels great. Bemberg is made from cotton, but the makeup of the fibre is changed to give it its unique properties.The advantage of being a natural fibre is that it wicks sweat and humidity away from the body. Bemberg is also anti-static and anti-cling for a more comfortable wear. In addition to its wonderful breathability, bemberg cupro is also good for the environment, being a biodegradable fabric produced using a renewable resource. We wear wool for many reasons, but the foremost is breathability. Wool is light and airy, unlike polyester or polyester blends, which make you sweat and itch. You will find that we have excellent customer service as our customer reviews attest.
