    September - no good. The trout streams are now closed to let the fish spawn in peace from midnight tonight until the October long weekend, which also happens to be my wedding anniversary. Happy to take you out from November on though if you come up, there are some beautiful clear freestone streams less than an hour away from Canberra.

    For the guy who can't stand the heat do you think tropical worsted's would make a good substitute to flannels?

    Oli - In theory yes.

    "Tropical" worsted should have a more open weave than even "normal" worsted. And therefore should be cooler.

    Worsted should be lighter and cooler than woollen flannels. Generally.

    But it all depends - on the material on those particular trousers. And compared to what.

    But mostly you will be wearing "business/formal" clothes in air conditioned places not in the park at a picnic or at the beach or even walking up the street or walking the dog around the block in summer. And therefore in theory in the same comfortable temperature as all the rest of the year. Of course this isn't quite true but could be.

    However as you know my first rule is:

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

    All another reason why it is important to be able to touch and feel a fabric so you know what you are getting and where ordering purely online from pictures can be difficult

    Oli on a serious note, I have those HY trousers. They are very light and great for summer; I've long since put them away for the colder months. They're nice, if a bit smooth and uninteresting. The VBC Super 120s are a better choice imo, though considerably warmer than the trop wool.

    Oli good post from Tobias. Should have said ask someone who has some of those trousers. As well you can over think small details. In general if they are described as tropical then they will be cooler or coolish. As to how much ----- its all pretty subjective a lot of the time --- other than basics of say not wearing an overcoat on hot days.

    I'm after an ultimate mid grey trouser - something that is all seasonal (like flannel supposedly is) that I can pull out with blazers and odd jackets.

    I'd like to only buy one if I could. I plan to wear them on weekends, dates, and any functions that come up where I fell like dandy-ing about.

    Confused now, which would you guys do? :(

    Oli, not sure what size you are but I have a pair of these (http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pants/products/nailhead-wool-pants-mid-gray), size 38 (see size chart on site), NWOT, never worn (along with a whole bunch of other items) that I need to get around to posting in B&S and on eBay, if you are interested.

    Strictly oxblood or does burgundy shell count? Does Double Monk have C&J Cavendish (or the penny loafer version)?
