The lovely multi colored flannel shirt we bought from Orvis is everything we wanted it to be. This colors are beautiful and the fabric is soft and very wearable. We could not be happier with this purchase and would recommend this shirt to anyone. I wish that Orvis had this block pattern in more colors.
One of my best shirts!!! -

I was lucky enough to have this shirt bought as a present. It has to be one of my most favourite as it is so warm and cosy, without itching next to the skin. Looks really good too, especially with denim jeans.

Me too...... -

This shirt is mid-weight flannel, just right for layering or on its own on milder days. Color has not faded, and no appreciable fabric pilling after a dozen or more washings. Good looks, good quality - you'll not regret this one.
Nice soft shirt -
By: Trainguy from Bethel, Maine
This is a great shirt not only because it is soft but it feels good on the body and fits well. Looks great. Get many comments about it's look and appeal. Of course it has that stamp of Orvis quality all over it. This was given to me as a gift and I love it.
Now a HUGE Orvis Fan -
By: MisterWms from Columbus, OH
After receiving my vest, sweater & flannel shirt Orvis is now my Go To store! I have shopped numerous outlets for men's clothing and have never been so completely satisfied with EVERYTHING most stores have to offer. The overall quality in literally every arena, from the materials used in the clothing to the helpful customer service and quick shipping makes this customer 100% satisfied. Thank you Orvis!!!
Softest Flannel Ever -
By: Bassman1010 from St Helena, CA
Yes, now I remember my old flannel shirts from Orvis. First, that soft, warm flannel cloth. The perfect shirt for February steelhead fish camp on the Smith River in cold Crescent City, CA. Then check the details: look at how the pocket is perfectly matched to the patterns on the shirt. Another perfect Orvis flannel in my closet.
Great Quality and Great Looking -
By: GoDawgs0408 from Spartanburg, SC
This shirt was very warm and comfortable not only while duck hunting in Arkansas, but paired with nice jeans, a good shirt for work. Since I'm not one to dress myself by looks, it would be helpful to know that my wife and three daughters all approve of the look too.

I purchased this shirt for my Dad and he wore it the next day. The colors were beautiful and the fit was great. He often has trouble with shirt tails being too short but this was not the case . I will definitely order from Orvis again.
What is flannel?
A plush, warm fabric of various weights and fineness, flannel is a plain-weave cloth that has been heavily brushed or carded for a soft napped finish. The brushing process creates insulating air pockets in the interlocking fibers that enhance its luxurious warmth. Cotton flannel is a favorite choice for pajamas and robes, cold-weather apparel, and bedding. A medium-weight fabric, wool flannel is a soft twilled fabric with a loose texture and napped surface to conceal the weave. Wool flannel is used mainly for suits and business attire.
History of flannel
Derived from the Welsh word for wool, gwlanen, flannel was being woven in Wales as early as the 16 th century. The French were using flanelle by the late 17 th century, and a German word for the fabric, flannell, can be traced back to the early 1800s, indicating the use of this soft, warm material for clothing and bed linens during harsh German winters.
Nothing says cozy like a classic pair of soft flannel pajamas. Typically the cotton flannel used in pajamas is brushed on both sides for the most comfort, and flannel pajamas are a winter sleepwear staple for men, women, and children. Flannel has long been thought of as the fabric of woodsmen, lumberjacks, and farmers as it is exceptionally good at insulating, particularly for outdoor work in cold environments. In the early 1990s, the Seattle alternative music scene introduced flannel shirts as a fashion statement among young people.
It's also has traditionally been used for athletic team wear—baseball road uniforms were historically made of wool flannel and known as “road grays”. Cricket uniforms were originally made of white flannel, and known simply as “flannels”. Wool flannel is a wonderful choice for more tailored business and dress clothing. Its tight weave helps pieces retain their shape, adds a sophisticated look and luxurious drape to clothing made of this classic fabric.
