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. Jitensha.com Below is cut and paste from their website. Eileen
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.
