Problem is, when you get darker it ends up looking like a suit trouser.

Disagree with this. Yes a dark charcoal trouser may have that effect, but a mid-grey mottled flannel, in my opinion, is the perfect odd trouser.

+1 - agreed.

Indeed, which is why I opt for light coloured odd trousers.

Mid-grey is great as well, just not as much.

Good choice. I just recieved two trousers in this cloth (should be Minnis 0300, at least similar enough) and it is indeed incredibly versatile. It even goes with green-ish tweeds which are normally relatively hard to wear with grey trousers.

I love medium gray trousers, but find that they don't always work with a lot of my sport coats which tend to be medium shades of brown or blue. So, I most of the time I go with dark gray or tan. But, medium gray is perfect for darker jackets.

I like it. Will provide a nice contrast with your jackets and will look great with blue shirts.

Does this also mean that I won with my 12 points?

I just scrolled back and saw your "One Choice" cloth. I like it very much. The lighter shade is perfect for what I was talking about with sport coats made in medium shades. Nice!

Now that you've seen the cloth, any better guesses as to what it is exactly?

looks like wool to me

A shade lighter than I would have thought but it's fantastic.

A hint: I sourced the cloth on my own.

Poor iPhone picture but...quite dark heathered/mottled flannel...darker than what is commonly called charcoal but not quite black...nice with a variety of grey jackets...black shoes/dark brown shoes...versatile for a monochromatic person like myself...

^^^ That's way too dark for me. I also have trouble imagining when I'd wear black shoes when not wearing a suit.
