Does the cream trouser issue go away with heavier flannels? I am having a pair made from Fox. Hope that'll be okay. It's the lighter worsted ones though. I have a pair from worsted cloth before, and I asked my tailor to stitch a button at the bottom of the pockets so I can fold it up to the waistband so it's not seen. Otherwise I might just have fake pockets with no actual pocket in them.
I have ivory or cream colored trousers made up from several Fox flannels. Only the very lightest, no longer available, needed to be lined for transparency reasons. That was a 7oz worsted flannel, barely a flannel at all, really. I have a cream pair in the Queen's Award flannel, standard half-lined to the knee, no issues; and a pair of the 290gm worsted flannel in Fox's classic cricket white color. No transparency at all.
Don't get fake rear pockets. Don't get rear pockets at all. They are useless and I don't see the point in cutting a slit in the back of your trousers only to then button it back up. Seems silly.
