I just can't find a decent replacement. I've found & bought off-white gabs, chinos, jeans... but I really, really wish I could find a pair of white flannels in my size. Oh well, it's good for the soul not to have absolutely everything I guess!

I guess I just don't have the panache. But I do see myself wearing a heavy white flannel patch-pocket coat in an alpine chalet, or something like that. Or trousers of the same cloth with a heavy Irish sweater. Or a heavy Shetland or even camel hair sweater.

They have no stock of ecru flannels but would be happy to make some up if we can get 35m of orders together.

They have a light palomino grey in stock. I'll try to get a photograph of this soon. This might be more like what we have seen earlier in this thread, however.

Please let me know if anyone is interested in getting something made.

Thanks,

Andrew

I am not interested in another light gray, but a white or off white with a cream or tan undertone, absolutely.

White barathea also works well as trousers-- give it time and it becomes yellow and fuzzy.

Eureka! Dormeuil "ICE" book. Two versions, one in 9.5 ounces, one in 15. The former is is just barely off white worsted flannel, the latter a little creamier (darker) with a noticeable twill.

THANK YOU for finding them! Fingers crossed they have this book at my tailor.

I've been inspired by this thead.

There was a white flannel in a dodgy book, at a hole-in-the wall 'Greek Brothers' place when I went to get some grey flannels made.

I'll post a pic when they are done.

If you don't mind me asking, did you go for the full lining?

I did, but is it imperative? I ask, as it is very hot here (Queensland - NE Aus) and it will preclude me from wearing them in exactly the seasons when they are most useful.

I asked for no lining, but the tailor felt strongly that it should have a half lining, so I went with his recommendation.

For a light flannel- that's a necessity (to prevent BKS- baggy knee syndrome)

And to prevent revealing the big American flag on your boxers.
