I don't think light charcoal is a thing, but different people have a different cutoff for what constitutional charcoal.
Foo is on his own with the whole cream silk thing.
^ Minnis definitely makes woolen flannels. I'm wearing a pair of trousers in a mid grey woolen from them as we speak.

Otherwise, they only come into play when I am going sans jacket and that is a different ballgame from the traditional classic menswear / good taste thread discussion.
