For Part II of Fall/Winter fabrics, I’m highlighting one of my all-time favorites: wool flannel.
Flannel is very popular in menswear and is used for many different items, from casual plaid shirts, to sharp “Mad Men” suits, to accesories like ties and tote bags.
Here, 3 different ways to incorporate some flannel into your look, weather it’s casual, dress, or somewhere in between.
3. Outerwear, Separates & Accessories
Something else that I’ve also been wearing since my youth – down filled coats. Only now the shell is flannel and the fit is slim and just long enough to cover a suit jacket hem.
Bonus Tip: Need a tie that looks just as great with a winter suit as it does with a casual look? Go with a medium grey flannel.
Grey & brown together? Suave.
Bonus Tip: a full-break in the pant leg (which has been rare on the site, at least in trousers) is a more mature, and conservative aesthetic. It works best on fabrics with the same feel; like this classic flannel chalkstripe.
