This is the softest flannel shirt I have ever bought. It is warm without being too heavy and comfortable. The perfect flannel shirt for the cooler weather and well made. Recommend to family and friends.
best flannel shirt purchased so far -
By: Nashman41 from Nashville tn
I purchased the medium red and black luxury flannel shirt and I love it. It feels great and looks great. 100% cotton,so may shrink some. I hang my shirts that might shrink after washing instead of drying in heat. This shirt looks good tucked in or out. Will defiantly be purchasing another color as well.
Soft and subtle -

My brother-in-law frequently wears bright red plaid flannel shirts in an attempt, I suspect, to look like a lumberjack. I have never owned such a shirt or any plaid flannel shirt until this one. It is soft, well made, of a light weight, and in the charcoal brown color I got, handsome and subtle. True, I am more apt to be mistaken for a deer than my brother-in-law, but I'll risk that happily. Expensive, of course, but worth it to me.
Nice Shirt, Too Pricey -

I bought this shirt in the brown/charcoal. It is a nice shirt, up to par with other Orvis shirts, however it is not worth the price by a long shot. I returned the shirt and purchased the Perfect Flannel Shirt.
Always satisfied -

Check my record of purchases, they are many. I am a quality nut. I want the best for myself and family. Simply, that is why I buy Orvis goods. The flannel shirt looks great, feels great and evokes comments from those lucky enough to see it. Every man needs at least 2 of these beauties.
Orvis "as usual"! -

My experience with Orvis Twill and Flannel shirts has been extraordinary. They are the only casual shirts that hang in my closet.
Great Flannel Shirt -
The Flannel shirt is both great looking and comfortable. They are expensive but worth the price. The shirt is light yet warm. I love wearing them in winter on a casual Friday. I look professional yet not overdressed. Perfect for the professional.
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.
