    You are correct. That was the first time I failed to make a productive contribution to a thread. But do not despair Little Buffy, I will return to giving you a well-deserved hard time shortly.

    I wore these today. They definitely aren't a pure, snow white. They are more of a dirty white, almost a really light gray with tan undertones. However, if I had to describe them, I'd probably call them white flannel. They are lightweight and seem to work best on a sunny day when the temperature is in the 50s and 60s. I pair them with a blazer.

    Zing! Awww man, you burned me so bad.

    But seriously, I derive meaning in my life from my family, friends, and work. Making fun of internet retards is a minor hobby. To put it in context, I spend more time playing with my cat than I do posting on internet forums. And I spend more time cleaning Kitty's litter box than I do responding to your posts.

    You do seem to spend the bulk of your time researching my old posts and kitty must leave some formidable offerings for you.[​IMG]

    I was under the impression that white flannel pants were at one time a wintertime dressy casual classic, at least back in the Golden Era.

    Dissed and dismissed! Wait, are you making fun of me or my cat? I am fair game, but leave Kitty out of this.

    I spoke to my cloth merchant and he mentioned perhaps a women's cloth store would carry a white or very light grey flannel.

    White flannel trousers? Or are you going to be sporting the Full Wolfe?

    I think just pants for now.

    Full Wolfe, please!

    Unless it's extremely lightweight, white flannel sounds like an oxymoron to me. Would you wear flannel in the summer?

    AA proves it's been done. I imagine it to look smashing.

    Full Gatsby. Go for it, old sport!

    Those look really nice. I recall Baron wearing (quasi-) white flannel trousers, no idea though where he got them from.

    I had a pair made up a few years ago. I think the flannel was from Holland & Sherry.

    Generations of cricketers did. I don't find them (I'd guess 11-12oz) unduly hot.
