All men are not equal – in their tastes, in their habits of dress, in their likes and dislikes. A suit styled (perfectly) for a man of forty plus, for example, would leave most young college and professional men cringing – and vice versa. However, the elegance, sophistication and style of mens gray flannel suits are timeless.
Mens gray flannel suits are being worn more than ever before. Why? Comfort! It’s the most comfortable fabric a man gets into every fall and winter season. The lightweight wool flannels of today—especially those blended with a hint of cashmere—are even more comfortable. You can tell the moment you see one from its beautiful texture and luxurious feel unequaled by other fabrics.
There are a great range of wool flannels to choose from. However, the mélange yarn that gives the gray flannel its hints of silver and black—adding depth to its color—is especially unique.

Advantages – Because men are more inclined in the fall/winter months to dress up, you can bring out that French cuff shirt and cufflinks for a more formal business look. The gray flannel also lets your spring/summer gray suit rest—especially if it’s a light or charcoal gray. You can introduce another shade of gray and even add a vest with some warm earth-toned ties to refresh your wardrobe. Lastly, you can dress it down with luxury knits and sweaters for more casual looks.

Disadvantages – The gray flannel is a seasonal suit. However, it is a must have for your wardrobe if you live in a true fall/winter climate.
Alternatives – The charcoal gray flannel is an outstanding alternative—especially for your fall and winter business wardrobe. The light gray flannel is a great alternative as well. While it certainly can be worn for business, I consider it the more casual of the three colors. But the best alternative is to ultimately not have to choose, so may I suggest you buy all three?
