Those same pants would be about $15-20 around here at a store like that.  Good deal.  :)

I wear Stanfields under my work pants/shirt most of the time. But in the extreme stuff I dig out the wool pants. I've never warn out none of the wool items. Wool is warmer and tougher than cotton.  I could survive a night in a snow bank. 8) :D :D

I liked the little outpost up at Hyder, Alaska. Heavy wool pants for $20 bucks. 8)

Guess I am the only one who likes his flannel Jeans. IMO they have there place.  Have two pair, one pair are denim and the other canvas.   I wear Gaiters when in the snow with them so getting them wet trudging through snow doesn't happen.  Mind you I am probably not spending the day outside in them, maybe running the tractor for a few hours or moving some wood. If I am spending the day out there then I am in my long johns and quilted bibs. I also wear the flannel jeans when I am in the pole building puttering around,  no heat out there but its dry inside the building. Maybe I am just lazy, its easier to throw the flannel jeans on than to get into the long johns and put the bibs on.  Wearing long johns under regular jeans would not work for me.  My regular jeans are snug enough as it is. Trying to squeeze myself into them with long johns on wouldn't be pretty.

Wool pants for $20.  Around here they would cost well over $100.  Wool is a luxury for me.  I love wool, but it usually is not in the budget for bigger clothing items.  Couple of my children chipped in a few Christmas's ago and bought me a wool vest. That sucker ran them about $120.  I have some wool sweaters and lots of wool socks but wool pants that have any heft too them would set me back a bit I would think. Tell me how I can order heavy wool pants for $20.  I will gladly pay for the shipping!:)

Back in the mid 90's I lived on the north coast of B.C. and in the department store there (Zellers) there was shelves of heavy long johns by Stanfields and rag wool pants by Big Bill. I still have those items and wear'm every winter. Never wore them out. I also ordered direct from Stanfield's in NS a couple years ago for a couple suits of wool underwear. I'll never need a new set of woolies for the rest of my time. :D But a suit of that stuff is around $85 I think. But if you want good stuff you have to pay. I don't want Asian junk. I like wool and don't mind paying if it's made on our own shores.  :) Work pants I have to buy Big Bills (Poly/cotton), as that Asian stuff is too small, crotch is all wrong and everything about them is wrong. That includes Dickies.
Move'n on.

Dusty, keep your eye out at yard sales in the summer-Not the "time" to buy wool clothing, but sometimes you get lucky and find stuff in your size, typically at much less than retail.
Also, search on craigslist, there is typically deals to be had on wool jackets, pants, etc. for much less than retail, just have to get lucky with your size.
There is multiple Johnson woolen mills jackets on VT CL for less than 50 bucks.
I think the only wool item I own that was purchased new was a woolrich shirt- christmas gift.
Wool clothes just happen to find us I guess. All the pants I have were given to me  :)
It's spoiled me so I won't buy new stuff! But I still love anything wool, it is great.

CElliott, Thats good info.  I will indeed, though I don't get around to the yards sales much but I know someone who does and I will have them looking.  I used to have a heavy pair of Wool pants that were my father in-laws.  When he quit hunting he gave them to me.  Though they were pretty worn out they were still warm.  Finally bit the dust a few years ago and have missed them.  Got lucky and have found some good wool sweaters over the years. I'll keep my eyes out for a good pair of pants.

Target stores sell merino wool sweaters.  I go in the spring when they have them at 75% off and buy all they have in my size. Keep them in plastic bags in the summer.  Best underwear tops you can find.

Wore my flannel lined denim last night to move some snow for my Amish neighbor.  Wasn't a big job so used the 4 wheeler with the plow.  My pants get tucked into my Muck boots and all stayed dry and warm.  Guess for our climate the flannel lined pants work well if you can keep them dry.  Low 20's when I was plowing.  Just an FYI, if you have a SAMS club nearby. I bought the denim flannels 2 years ago at SAMS for $14.  Usually cost more than that for regular denim jeans so they were a great buy in my book. I did not look for them this year but was told SAMS got another stack of them in this fall and they sold out within the week.  Not sure what they were asking for them this year.

Back in the day when my grandfather was younger and working like a yarding horse, men of the woods wore wool checkered coats, usually red or green. Then for some reason they stopped making them available around here and made them flannel coats lined with polyester and fill. Unless your in dry 20 degree weather I'd freeze to death in those type of coats. No warmth much if they get wet from snow and the ice starts forming. :D I had one last fall when thinning, I was warmer with a work shirt over wool t-shirt. I hung the flannel up on a tree branch. :D

I like my flannel lined Carhartt pants for working outside in fall/winter weather until they get wet. If they stay dry they're great, and they last a long time. I don't work outside daily so they work well for me for what I do.

Just sent my Woolrich red plaid coat to Goodwill. Couldn't use it to hunt any more as it wasn't blaze orange.

My good wool pants, vest, and coat are from Johnson Woolen mills in northern VT.

I too like my flannel jeans, mine are Carhartt. Think I'm on the 5th pair over the years. We had minus 0 temps about 10 days ago, they worked great. Many people like myself cannot wear any poly or neo materials due to allergic reaction, so all the "new" materials are left to others. Cotton or wool and sweating comes with the territory!

I have a nice red wool coat from there. Very nice coat, well made. This was my uncle's, he passed away last fall. It will last a heck of a long time, even though we have long winters. I feel like a Mounty wearing it. :D :)

If you can't wear the synthetic materials, you may want to try silk long underwear. They wick water away from your skin (not quite as well as the synthetics, but a whole lot better than cotton, which holds the water near your skin). Wool can get a bit itchy as an inner layer.

I find silk is better than any synthetics I've used.
