What's the most versatile color for flannel? Charcoal? Medium grey? Light grey?

It Depends on personal taste and if you are high contrast or not...

I prefer charcoal because it suits me a lot better...

They're both very versatile..

Medium and/or light gray.

Medium gray is very versatile. Since I wear flannel in winter, the light gray is nice way to bring a lighter tone into what I am wearing.

Donkey. I kid. Medium grey is the most versatile by far. Goes with everything.

light grey seems hard to match if you're not wearing a sports coat/blazer...what color shirt would you wear with it?

Medium gray is most versatile, IMO, but I'm also a big fan of charcoal as well as striped flannels in gray, charcoal, and dark blue.

I choose the dark grey one on the top right hand corner.

More complex than a charcoal grey or charcoal. I do not like grey or medium grey

Cloths woollen flannels, 500-525 (17oz), from Gorina in Spain

Light grey is too summery casual for my liking and mid-grey is a bit boring...

Go for dark grey or charcoal...

Every blue shirt you can find and all the pastel colors like pink, lavender, etc. They all work. Wouldn't be harder to work with than any other shade of grey. If you struggle with this it may be finding tones that work with you skin tone more than the cloth color.

I like medium on the light side of grey. I find charcoal surprisingly difficult to match, as odd trousers.
