    Plaids Don't Match! - 10/19/2015
    By: from Richmond, VA

    The shirt is has a nice feel and fits well. For the price, however, I expected that the plaids would match, not only at the side seams, but on the sleeves, too. The plaids on the sleeves don't even match each other! The vibrant colors and the large size of the pattern really make this obvious and cheapens the look. I'd like to return.

    Great looking and fitting shirt that says Autumn is here. Probably be a couple of months before Autumn actually gets here to Texas, but I'll be ready.

    Another Great shirt - 8/10/2015

    I bought three different flannel shirts from Orvis. I like the coloring on this shirt the best. Size is a little large but I think I can shrink it just enough. Size I bought does run true. This will be a great shirt for the Fall.

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.

Flannel clothing

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.
