Super High Quality -

This flannel would be a fair price purchase at full price. At half price, it's a steal. Great quality shirt that should last for many seasons of wear.
Best Flannel you can purchase -

Hands down, this is the best flannel shirt you can purchase. My husband loves these. The softness of the flannel is terrific!
Stylish, classic comfort -

I am writing this review after purchasing my fifth Orvis Luxury Flannel Shirt. Superb cut that fits true to size. I wear them in the autumn and winter. They are warm on their own, but not so heavy that they can't be layered under a sweater. Three of the shirts I have had for four years, and I can't see any difference in wear and tear from those purchased more recently. I have mine laundered at a cleaners.

this is a flagship orvis product that justifies its price. the fit is true-to-small, meaning that it is not as roomy as some orvis shirts for the size. i have 2 of these shirts, i normally wear a generous large so order XL, but since other orvis shirts run large (so L suits me), i ordered this in L at first, and it fit perfectly pre-wash. i made sure i was very careful the first time around washing it and it is fine. the material is amazing and looks built to last.
Over-priced, but excellent product -

No true (cheap) Yankee could justify paying Orvis' full asking price for this product. It is after all only a flannel shirt. But, having bought this Luxury Flannel at 60% off, I think it is a great value. Incredibly comfortable and well made. Expecting it to be a favorite for at least a decade.
nice feel, light weight, vibrant colors -
By: georgiawoodswalker from woods in georgia
I have always had thick and heavy flannel shirts in the past. As I have gotten older, the ruggedness has lost prime consideration, giving way to comfort. This is thinner than prior flannel shirts I have purchased (and still have) but seems very soft and comfortable, Time will tell how well it wears but I consider it a good value for now and will likely buy more if it is long lasting.
Soft, Soft, Soft -
The perfect Fall or Winter shirt. Wash once and if feels like you have had it for years.

This shirt feels good on the skin. The cotton is soft & medium weight.
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.
