Don't worry, Noodle man. Flannel is a must have. Just dont wear it every day, just to be safe.

Yep, even if you wore it Mon and Thur every week, it will last a very long time.

No. B&T appeals due to it being fairly casual in its cut. Despos is both more formal and more expensive.

True on the casualness. I think I've heard Despos shoulders described as moderate padding. Also, no drape. Very clean chest.

Boss and Valentini. Perhaps it was caused by the fact that I'm exceptionally well endowed. wink.gif

Here are the grey flannel swatches from my cloth hoard. I have them broken down into worsted and woolen.

At any given weight (10.5/11 oz, 14 oz, 17 oz), the woolen will feel "beefier" and more substantial. (Especially the woolens from Minnis) The worsteds feel finer and more delicate.

Here's a flannel suit from my personal collection. Make is Samuelsohn. I believe the cloth is a worsted. It's a 98% wool, 2% cashmere blend. Also seems be be in no more than 12 oz.

For my next flannel suit, I would prefer a heavier weight woolen. Probably a Minnis. The cloth on my Samuelsohn doesn't drape very well. You can see ripples forming in the back. I don't think a heavy weight woolen would do this.

I've seen them. JRD isn't fat. That's all I recall.

I saw one. In a darkly lit, apartment hallway. Can confirm he was not fat, at least not at that time.
