If you're an individual whose legs touch and rub together, this rubbing friction can lead to quicker wear in the crotch and upper thigh area.
Similar to thigh size, if your walking style causes your legs to rub together as you walk then you will be putting extra pressure on your upper thigh and crotch area, ultimately leading to premature wear.
Fabric too fine
Those pesky Super 150s, they feel amazing and look better than they feel. Unfortunately, with the increased fineness of the fibres, they are more delicate and wear more quickly than your Super 110s. We recommend these for your special events, and not for work!
Pants too slim
The price we pay for being runway ready? If you prefer your pants on the slimmer side, this can cause stress on the fabric when your knees are bent or you're being overly active.
How can I prevent this kind of wear?
If this is a regular issue for you, then there are a few things that can prevent the wear in the first place:
First and foremost we need to ensure that your pants fit properly and aren't too tight in the upper thigh.
A saddle is a small triangle of reinforcing fabric that can be added by a tailor after you receive your pants. This helps to reduce the friction from legs that are rubbing and also spreads any moisture that can cause wool to be more delicate.
Air them out
After a long day of wear, there can be a build-up of moisture and bacteria. This can cause the fibres to become weaker and more brittle. Before you return your suit to the closet, let it air out on a hanger for a couple of hours.
Don't do star jumps
Our suits are primarily made of wool and wool does not stretch. If you do the splits at your brother's wedding, I'm sorry to inform you that your pants will rip. Almost every time.
