Best Flannel Shirts for Men SS19
The Flannel Shirt is one of man’s most versatile garments. Ideal for when you need an extra layer on those cold winter mornings, it can also be worn as a top layer on breezy summer days. Very few pieces in your wardrobe can be taken from season to season quite like a Flannel Shirt, and we haven’t even touched on its smart/casual versatility. So with that in mind, here’s some Flannel Shirts around in Spring/Summer 2019 from some of our favourite labels…
Patagonia Long Sleeved Lightweight Fjord Flannel Shirt
Patagonia is without doubt the king of outerwear these day and naturally their flannel shirt offerings are some of the best around. Something like this Lightweight Fjord will last a lifetime thanks to its durable, 100% organic cotton, garment-washed flannel twill weave. It comes with traditional long-sleeves and features a single flap pocket on the left-chest which Patagonia promise is “passport-compatible”, so it’s perfect for travelling.
Portuguese Flannel Teca Shirt
Website: End Clothing
Despite it being known for its sunshine, Portugal is actually Europe’s biggest producer of fine flannel fabric and it’s widely regarded as some of the best in the world. So it would only seem natural that we point you in the way of the aptly named Portuguese Flannel. We love their ‘Teca’ shirt which is perfectly demonstrates that not all flannel shirts need to be checked to look the part.
Filson Alaskan Guide Shirt
Filson are one of North America’s premier outerwear brands and their iconic Alaskan Guide Shirt is a classic of the genre. Made with midweight breathable cotton flannel, it’s wind-resistant and brushed for soft comfort. A pleated back provides a full range of motion – so it’s just as happy at work as it is in the pub garden – while the long hem offers full coverage and keeps the shirt tucked in.
Club Monaco Slim-Fit Cotton-Flannel Shirt
Website: Mr Porter
Another one to prove that block colours are just as at home in flannel, this olive shirt from Canadian label Club Monaco is cut from lightweight cotton-flannel and is a great all-rounder this season. Thanks to its slim cut, it’s easy to layer at work with a crew-neck jumper, while its classic shaping means it can just as easily be worn open with a plain white tee.
Fjällräven Forest Flannel Shirt
Unsurprisingly, the Scandinavians have their flannel game locked down and we love the range from legendary Swedish brand Fjällräven. Most famed for their Kanken backpacks (which can be seen on virtually every High Street in the country), for us Fjällräven’s hard-wearing shirts are just as much of a hit. We like their Forest Flannel Shirt this SS19 which has a touch of retro about it, with small checked styling adding a little more sophistication than others on our list.
Dickies Sacramento Shirt
Website: Dickies Life
Last but not least, we couldn’t feature flannel shirts without mentioning the Dickies Sacramento Shirt. This timeless classic is Dickies’ most famed piece and features a 100% cotton twill flannel construction and is available in a huge array of colour variations to suit any style. It’s the flannel staple.
