Bought a pair of wool pants today... something satisfying about getting these-- tough, practical, unfashionable. They are German Army issue-- stamped "1940". These bad boys have been around 60 years and are still in great shape! They are warm, thick, and sturdy. Should get me through the worst that a southern winter has to offer.
Note- Army surplus shops can be great suppliers for Hobopoets-- I got these pants for only $18... they'll probably still be around when I'm 100 years old.
