100% Wool Tapered Flannel Dress Pant

Banana Republic, $45 $140

One of the best deals you'll find on dress pants that are 100% wool. I found these at my local Banana Republic, and when I saw the sale price it was a no-brainer. With room to move and a tapered leg opening, they're equally suitable for the office or a smart casual event with sneakers.
