Try Jitensha Studio in Berkeley. I love the wool knickers I got from them
as well as the wood argyle socks. They are very warm. I also have three
pairs of Compass Bicycle knickers. They are much sturdier than they look
and work well in warmer weather.
Below is cut and paste from their website.
Hiroshi had these made to his design by a Tokyo family business
specializing in traditional climber's knickers. They are beautifully
finished in 80/20 wool/nylon with leg grippers, buckle closures at the calf
and in the back, and a combination of flap/button and button closure
pockets. We also have socks <https://www.jitensha.com/eng/knickersocks.html>
metric sizes (cm): 76, 80, 84, 88, 92, 96, 100, 104
U.S. sizes (inch): 28, 29.5, 31, 32.5, 34, 35.5, 37, 38.5
To go with our wool blend knickers, we have socks.
