Should winter ever actually arrive, some heavyweight trousers will no doubt be in order. This pair from Brooks Brothers is made of one of Izzy’s favorite fabrics: cavalry twill, a hard-wearing wool cloth of military origin that’s perfect for running an empire. Made of a steep double twill, the fabric must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
It’s not exactly “The Charge of the Light Brigade,” but as the limerick has it:
As the crusty old Colonel admitted,
It’s to cavalry twill he’s committed:
Woollen fabric that’s tough,
So he chooses the stuff
When his trousers are tailored and fitted.
