Interesting. Time for some science! I just did a Color grab on it using gimp and came up with this with (171, 153, 129), which translates into a hex code of #ab9981. According to here this has an HSV of (34.3, 24.6, 67.1). In short:
To me this looks as much brown as grey, but that's not very conclusive, and I have at my disposal some of the most powerful image processing and mathematics software in the world. So why not use it? This isn't terribly far from either the pale taupe or crayola taupe listed here. The nearest grey is #ababab. To compare them I just computed the cartesian dot product of the color sample from your jacket with each of the three colors I've mentioned. All are pretty close (within .993) of each other as color vectors, however I suspect that this is to their similar value height - all are about 70 or so. #ababab has coordinates (0,0,67.1) in HSV. So, if we project that out we are down to the H and S coordinates (which are polar). For both the Pale Taupe and the Crayola Taupe, the agreement is still excellent - .986 and .989 repsectively where as for the grey it's 0. As such, I would still say that this is more of a taupish color. I did a few more grabs, but all still seem to be in that same color range, though some lighter and darker. I can do the analysis again, but I don't expect the outcome will be terribly different.
Edit: To be preemptive, I'm not trying to be a dick to you about this and if this methodology comes off as such, you have my apologies. These are the sorts of things that interest me, and that you refer to it as grey is equally interesting. If this is actually grey, then the point is moot, but this (the color above) is certainly the color to which I am referring. My wife is an artist and I'm a mathematician, so I think of greys as specifically being those colors which lie along the line between the origin and (1,1,1) in the RGB square (with practical variations acceptable. In looking at this, I found the HSV scale, which I really like because it looks like greys are colors with coordinates (0,0,z). Back to the point though, my technicality is not meant to be obtrusive, it is merely a requirement of my argument.
Technically speaking (Colors Theory) you have found a "Desaturated tint of brown".

Its a three buttoned velvet blazer from Armani.It can actually be worn as only a two buttoned as the lapels are very soft(Typical Armani i suppose). I had it fully buttoned up when I came in as its
pretty cold outside this morning.You are right about the lapels being quite thick. I´ll try post a better pic of the jacket for you
