Not at all, honestly. If the herringbone has enough contrast (black and white yarns instead of grey) it can be paired with all shades of grey flannels. Ok, with medium grey you will need a strong coloured tie and/or cardigan to break the almost monochromatic ensemble but it works (at least to my eye).Don’t you find the grey herringbone a little tough to wear dynamically?
Brown POW is great but brown herringbone is way more flexible than grey for me.
Brown is easier to pair, yes (grey flannels, khaki cottons, fawn cavalry twills) but it may look too countrified in some situations. Same happens with green.
