Fabric Glossary: Flannel

Published on March 24, 2022

Flannel, also known as brushed cotton, is a soft woven fabric that comes in a range of weights and fineness. Our favorite for colder months, flannel is most commonly made from cotton, although modern flannel dress shirts can also be from cotton/wool blends for even more warmth. Flannel shirts have a brushed finish that gives them their signature fuzzy texture. The term "flannel shirt" is often used to refer to any shirt with a plaid pattern; however, flannel simply refers to the fabric, which can be produced in any pattern or color.

We believe that flannel is the best dress shirt fabric for fall and winter; its soft, warm fabric is perfect for bundling up. Although it is decidedly casual, our finer flannel shirts can effortlessly be dressed up with a sweater or jacket for your holiday party or a night out.
