Are they on the tighter side? I usually try to go for something in-between (not baggy, nor too slim).I have a pair of their trousers in grey woolen circular flannel. The material is very comfortable, but I teared the crotch quite quickly. As a Dutchman, I do cycle a lot, so this probably contributed to the blowout. I think the blowout happened after wearing the trousers fifteen times. In the SuSu shop, they've told there's nothing the tailors could do about it. So I did the job myself and zigzagged an old grey cotton t-shirt to fix the gap:

ymmv, but in my opinion it's not very hard wearing.
The only pair of flannels that I’ve blown out the crotch on is a couple of pairs from a local Swedish brand. They’re very slim though. I have older flannels from SuitSupply (from 2019) that are still like new. I don’t do any cycling though, so that might be the culprit in your case.
I’m thinking about commissioning a couple of pairs, hence my earlier question. But I guess that their circular flannels are suitable for trousers and not just a jacket fabric, as discussed earlier by a couple of participants in the thread?
