        they died off in the mainstream but the zoomer generation’s universally agreed upon Black god who dictates how ‘urban’ people dress travis scott made them ‘hip’ again with the ‘youths’ i have no idea what anon’s on about.

          What planet are you living on? Flannels have literally never died off in the mainstream. Every single era has a subculture that wears flannels. Folk artists and blue collar Americans ever since the 60s. 90s grunge. Mid 2000s hipsters. Modern day hipsters. Modern day rural folk. You spend too much time insulating yourself on this board

    Plaid shirts will always be a part of men’s Fall/Winter fashion. Last one I got was a UES extra heavy flannel from their most recent release, the blue one in this picture.

            They are some of the best flannels on the market, super heavy and extremely well made. I have two of the 15.5 oz and on 14.5 oz flannel from them and they are all great. I might get one of the newest ones and buying right from their site is the cheapest option, but there’s a few global retailers as well.

    Don’t worry about plaid being too bold, the only person that’ll give you a second glance is some guy who really wants to talk to somebody about craft IPAs

        god i want an iron heart flannel.
        i already own too many nice flannels and every time i go to the boutique that carries them in my city i get talked into buying something else 🙁

        Dope. I work on the railroad been wanting to buy some overalls and flannels for the season

        iron heart makes the best cotton flannels in the world imo. none i’ve seen come close.
        and for wool its vintage filson and vintage pendleton if you’re in america. vintage filson goes for a lot vintage pendleton can be had at a steal on ebay.

          Wearing my IH flannel. I own 3 more. Once you get one, you end up selling all of your other flannels. They perfected the flannel, everything else doesn’t really compare. The fit is perfect (not too slim or baggy), the interior is extra soft, the weight is perfect, QC is obviously perfect, their plaid patterns and color ways are the best I’ve seen. Also, western cuts and button snaps are hecking sick

            I highly recommend those UES shirts, they are almost half the price of the IH ones with all the quality and a thicker material. If you’re going to check out a different company that’s the one.

            although from my experience trying on some of the UES stuff in person they are really well made garments, my issue is that they rarely (if at all) release western cut flannels with button snaps. Also, at the end of the day I highly prefer the plaid design and color ways from IH. I’m just extra picky like that and these are the things that are deal breakers for me. I’ll spend $350 on shirt ONLY IF it checks all of my boxes

            i’m just as picky, the biggest reason i don’t have an ih flannel is the exact shadow check pattern i want seems to only ever get listed for $800+ in my size and its discontinued.

            Not sure if I have enough lol

            How do I wash my UHFs without shrinking them?

          • Anonymous says:

            i machine wash cold/no spin or bucket wash all my flannels and tumble dry low. they shrink a tiny bit but not enough to affect the fit on a looser fitting heritage cut type shirt. on slim cut shirts i just do my tailoring after the shrinkage. something that expensive i would probably dry clean just to be safe.

          • Anonymous says:

            Cold wash on low to medium spin, and hang dry. Turning them inside out is kind of unnecessary unless you have one with actual indigo dye that you don’t want to fade very quickly.

            will they shrink if I air dry?

            well, I live in a studio apartment so I’d just be hanging it up in my closet. How do I avoid wrinkles?

          • Anonymous says:

            I literally just stretch out and flop around the shirt when I pull it out of the washer. When its damp, its going to look wrinkly even after stretching it a little bit, but as it dries out for a day the softness comes back and the wrinkles go away, especially once you flop it out or stretch it again. You rarely need to wash these things. I probably only wash my IH flannels once every 2 months with regular wear. They must be really breathable or something because they never smell

            I hate bias-cut pockets. If Iron Heart made some simpler flannels I would try them

            For me, it’s always Gitman flannels. Classic details.

    It’s my current stopgap while I try to dress like a hecking adult. It’s not great but I don’t have the looks to dress like the average normie at my Uni

    I think most guys look really good in an outer layer like this. It’s cozy vibes, makes you look approachable and friendly. Plus it’s more interesting than a plain black jacket

    Outer? Not really. I do wear them, but not as oversized as it would have to be for an outer layer. Outer would be a corduroy jacket in the fall.

    Anybody tried JCRT? They don’t seem to have the quality of the Japanese flannels, but they do have some pretty wild plaids.

    Not to shill but Anian makes legitimately the best flannel for this type of stuff. Price point is around 250 but it’s very well fitted and warm, from recycled materials. I’ve been obsessed with it since. The quality has been unmatched so far aside from vintage wool flannels.

    • Anonymous says:

      they put plastic into their flannels, no thanks

      They look great visually, I’ll give you that. But $250 is a stupid price to pay for something that cuts corners with nylon and recycled materials instead of good materials like extra high quality cotton or wool. That’s what I expect for $250.

      just copped and came in the mail. 10/10

      Iron heart is pretty much god tier. Not even just their flannels, but jeans and other denim items too. If I had to only pick one pair of jeans to stick with for life it would definitely be them
