Corduroy fabric is graded by 'wales' ... a wale being that ridge of fabric, so the number of wales per inch is how the fabric is graded. An 8-wale would have 8 ridges per inch, and thus be thicker and more robust than a 16-wale fabric.
Both types of fabric are in general production, so you should be able to find the pants you want. The thinner high-wale-count fabrics tend to be used for more casual garments (esp re pants, not so much shirts) so looking in a store focusing on suits & business casual is probably a better bet than say a streetware or casual/workwear store.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
