I don't see immediate blame on either side of this issue...maybe it's unrealistic expectations on all sides.

Errr, so to you "crappy" means "my crowd doesn't care for it"? What you call stuff that actually has something wrong with it? Or maybe I shouldn't ask.
Anti-perspirant is itself a source of stains over time--but normally those are yellow, not gray. Never heard of gray underarm stains before.
I basically treat chinos as a summerweight (and slightly dressier) equivalent to jeans. I don't cuff jeans and so I don't cuff chinos. I reserve cuffs for dressy odd trousers, or for a casual suit if I should ever get one.

^ Two questions. 1. Carding and combing leads to worsted, and without this step the result is tweed, yes? So if flannel is traditionally not worsted, does that mean the typical (or at least the traditional) flannel is a tweed? 2. I thought the production of flannel typically ended with a heavy brushing of the fabric to raise and align the nap for a furry/silky texture. Am I wrong?
