I just purchased some light grey Hugo Boss flannel pants on sale at Gary's in Newport Beach, CA. I think light grey flannel odd trousers are quite common.

I think one of the last acceptable pleated pant looks is that of a great reverse pleat on with a large 1 3/4 cuff on grey flannel trousers...

thoughts?

The Ralph store in San Francisco had a grey flannel suit made up for fall/winter; Blue Label, very soft shoulder. The weight 'heavy'; I'm guessing a 14 once maybe more. Lovely. Even after the Man in The Grey Flannel Suit lost vogue in the 60's (I was an infant), I still loved the look and don't think its 'ordinary' but a timeless classic; which can be kicked up several notches. I have a pair of grey flannel odd trousers (12 to 13 ounce) that are about 13 years old and wear when I travel east and north. Love them especially with the Ed Green 888 mink suedes.

Since I originally posted in this thread, I found and purchased on deep discount a RL Polo suit in charcoal gray flannel. To my eye, it appears very English, with high-waisted, double pleated trousers and peaked lapels. Unfortunately, in over a year I haven't found the occasion to wear it.

You all inspired me. Mrs. 808 and I were out shopping last weekend and stopped by Syms since it was nearby. I found a beautiful light gray flannel in my size on markdown. I had to get it.

It is light, which some of you consider less conserative (didn't someone use the word "dandy"?), but I think it looks just amazing. it has a very faint blue to it.

Unfortunately I won't get it to the tailor until Friday and by the time it comes back there may not be much cold weather left--and it'll require cold weather.
