My second favorite flannel suit (the mid grey is first favorite) was a pale, muted celery green. So muted you can't tell the color at a glance, requires a closer look. Made it up as a DB. Found and used the perfect horn buttons at Tender Buttons. Have enough cloth for a second suit. Bought extra for the uniqueness of the cloth.I would do flannel suits in almost every shade and patterns of blue and grey. The char blue from Fox and the black chalkstripe from H.Lesser LGB are cloths I would love to have made in the future. How not to like charcoal chalkstripe or black & white PoW as well? Closet space and ocasion to wear them would be the only reasons not to have them made at some point in life.
Also have a donkey flannel chalk stripe. The look is very vintage. It's got a "dirty" look to the finish. That's the allure to my eye.
