Mid. My light/mid grey and Donegal flannel gets more use than my dark grey flannel. if I could do it all over, I'd probably do winter white before charcoal. I work in a casual environment, for what it is worth

American pattern pants fit me perfectly. Like literally my tailor decided not to touch them save for the hem and cuff

 

Has anyone with this circumstance had luck sizing up in the Italian pattern pants?  These were crazy tight for me in the seat and thigh and waist.  I thought maybe I got fatter but I tired others back on and they were perfect still

I would go with a lighter gray for brown shoes. I wear black shoes once I get into the charcoal and darker color range.

On another note, I just got a pair of the new Italian pants and they are definitely cut slimmer. I used to get the 34 Italian and have them taken in a bit. I did not need any waist alterations with the new cut.

Charcoal is a hard color for odd trousers. I'd buy 3 or 4 pair of mid grey, probably even a light grey, before I'd buy charcoal.

I agree with aravenel.  I was actually speaking about darker gray suits when I wear black shoes.  My trousers are mid to light gray.

If anyone is interested a HY Summer/Winter blazer in size 36, please PM.

Both worn only once; both navy, one a summer hopsack and one a twill wool. Added horn buttons.

Been meaning to get a sale thread up but it's taking longer than I'd like to get the photos sorted out.

Yes, I'm interested. Hope to see it on the marketplace soon.

How are the Lambswool Flannel pants?

Are pictures of the new flannel trousers show real color or they are a bit lighter?
Maybe someone have pics of the new VBCs in the field? I would appreciate them.

Can you say how they differ. I think they are supposed to be more tapered? I'm bummed. The old Italians fit me very well, especially at the seat.

They are more tapered and fit me tighter in the waist and seat.

A naive question but is this contast stitching? On the pocket it seems to just be thread to sew these shut but then I see the same thread on the belt loops?

I receive a bunch of the new flannels this week, including the VBC 100 mid gray flannels you linked to above. The contrast stitching is only on the belt loops. I was a bit concerned about it when I saw them online, but IMO the stitching isn't flashy, or even very noticeable when they are worn. The D-ring flannels don't have the contrast stitching.

Thanks.  In your opinion what different temps do you think the different weights of flannel are comfortable?  Also, do you think the 120's are durable at all?

For the new 'slim cut' is that through the thigh as well as tapered calf? It doesn't say anything about the seat/thigh area
