I don't know how I have managed this, but I seem to have gone a large portion of my life without a proper pair of grey flannel trousers. If you already have a pair, then you know what a workhorse they can be. I have to admit that I have been having trouble in locating a pair that I like, sartorially speaking. That's why I have given myself the deal that if I lose a certain amount of weight, then I can treat myself to a bespoke pair. More on this as the weight comes off (hopefully) and the trousers come on.
