Fawn Flannel

I really like this Apparel Arts illustration you see below, where a man is shown wearing a dark blue polo shirt, fawn colored trousers, and a pair of slip ons. Since finding it, I’ve been inspired to get a pair of fawn flannel pants. Fawn being a melange of grey and tan, and can look either dirty or dusty, depending on the shade. I’ve included pictures of the two ends of the range - one starting at golden brown and the other ending at light oatmeal. 

I think it would be a wonderful color to wear, either with a white or blue shirt (or polo), as well as a navy sport coat. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much luck finding a pair. Orvis was an option, but I’ve since become enamored with the lighter oatmeal end of the spectrum. Barneys also had some by Ralph Lauren Purple Label (excuse the awful styling) and their own house brand. Those will likely drop 50% or so during their seasonal sale, but they’ve unfortunately run out of my size already. Additionally, Saks also had something, but it’s too brown. 

The best option so far is Panta, who said they’d make me a pair through Rocco Ciccarelli’s custom shop. You can see Matthew wearing a pair of them below (he’s the one with the olive alligator belt). I’m waiting for a fabric swatch to arrive from Panta, and if it goes well, perhaps they’re the best bet. 

But yes, fawn flannel. If you find a pair, I think they would make for a great year-round color.
