Best men's flannel shirts in 2022

Nothing says Fall is approaching quite like pulling on a fresh flannel shirt. Worn by everyone from grunge god Kurt Cobain to the perpetually dapper designer Ralph Lauren—they can be buttoned up by themselves right now and are perfect for a mid-layer during the colder months. This Fall favorite isn't new, of course, but how people have been wearing them feels fresh. The easily adaptable shirts can be mixed in a nostalgic way as people are knee-deep in '90s fashion looks—throw them over a tee or thermal with some vintage denim, worn-in leather jackets and chunky footwear.

Today's best styles are more relaxed and cut a little roomier. You've got traditional prints like Buffalo plaid and tartans along with rugged fabrics like brushed twills and soft wool blends. Although plaid is synonymous with classic-looking flannels, there are solid options in case a bold pattern or print isn't your vibe. But the best ones are unapologetically flannel, with sturdy buttons and a fuzzy texture. We've picked out a few to help jumpstart your fall wardrobe wishlist, so don't wait to buy these when it's already too cold.

Feeling itchy?

Flannels are warm and cozy, but some can be itchy. A base layer like this thermal will keep you comfortable and serve as a buffer between your skin and the flannel. You’ll also wear this as much as your flannel come winter time—thank us later.

$98 by imogene + willie
