Let’s start of by setting the record straight, “flannel” is a fabric not a pattern. Often times people mistakenly reference flannel to mean any shirt with a plaid or tartan pattern, which is incorrect. Flannel is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness and was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, but is now often made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fibre.

With all the semantics aside we can now talk about other uses of flannel outside of the typical lumberjack persona. The flannel fabric is truly a very versatile garment and with the various twills, patterns and colours available today you can quite literally wear it in any social setting, assuming it’s styled appropriately. To prove this point we’ve put together 3 outfits illustrating 3 common social environments, casual, social and formal to help you think outside of the “style” box.
