Absolutely, wise words from Veremund. A tweed jacket is really a great companion, it can be dressed up and down, and taken almost anywhere, great for travelling with as well (pockets, hard wearing). There is a lot to be said for enjoying it and not overthinking the fit. None of my jackets fit 'to perfection', but make a pretty good job at it, and I love wearing them.
re: grey flannels, they're a staple really, you can't go wrong with them. It's useful to have 2-3 pairs of different shades, if you wear them often. I also have some lightweight donegal tweed trousers which fit a similar purpose/look, but it does depend upon your climate as well.
