Greetings Gents (and Ladies),

Grey flannel trousers.  Antonio says these should be a staple for all well dress gentlemen. I've been looking for a pair and have had little luck.  However, I just stumbled on some that may just work.

As you probably know, they are hard to find.  I know that Brooks Brothers carries them, but they are over $200.  Orvis carries them as well, but I believe they price them around $150.  And our beloved Antonio is apparently going to be offering them starting at $200 a pair.  So there are some options, but for someone in my position, the prices are too high for my liking.

Now for my discovery.  L.L. Bean carries a pair of 100% wool flannel trousers that come in charcoal and blue.  The best part is the price is $99.  This, I may be able to deal with.  Here is a link: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/65708?feat=590-GN1&page=washable...

So, has anyone tried these out?  How are they? I was at the LL Bean store yesterday and they did not have any in store.  They appear to be online item only.  Thoughts?

Try Jos. A. Banks...I bought a pair for far under $100.  They're pleated and cuffed, on the darker side of medium grey.  Very comfortable.  I also ordered a pair from Michael Kors (I think) from Macys...also very nice but a little more money.  I'll have to llok at the LL Bean, I'd thought they discontinued them.
