Flannel – A Solid Cloth Choice for your A/W Trousers and Suits


The perfect choice for dressing down your suit to a more smart casual look is to select flannel as your cloth option.

A soft woven fabric made from worsted wool or worsted yarn flannel, it gets its characteristics depending upon whether it has been brushed to create extra softness or left un-brushed.

Most men normally have a wool suit, sleek and sharp, as their go-to choice. They may not have worn a pair of flannel trousers before, let alone a whole suit.


Flannel trousers are unquestionably smart. Classically made in grey, they also come in navy and many other colours including a variety of pinstripe options. The fuzzy texture and quality of the material allow them to stand out from the normal suit trousers and jacket.



They are great for pairing with a sports jacket as well as your suit jacket for the office. Versatile for being able to wear them more casually with a piece of knitwear or polo shirt at casual events or at the weekend.

Flannel is a great choice for your A/W transitioning weather,  from the last bits of summer right through to the cold of winter.



There are many other reasons we could list for why you should invest in a pair of flannel trousers or a flannel suit for your wardrobe, including the fact that they are exceptionally comfortable, they introduce a new texture to your outfits and they are extremely durable and are stain-resistant.
