The ‘Wallace’ in Red Navy Plaid from Mizzen + Main is a high-performance flannel shirt unlike anything else out there and I mean that in the best of ways. These Mizzen + Main flannels have taken my favorite shirt style to the next level with their lightweight performance fabric that has DryCool technology that’s quick-drying and moisture-wicking. These flannels have a natural stretch from Mizzen’s special fibers (no spandex added), they’re wrinkle-resistant so you don’t have to iron them, and they’re 2″ shorter than their dress shirts because they’re designed to be worn untucked or tucked in, whichever you prefer.

You can pair that Mizzen shirt with the 5-pocket Comfort Twills from Faherty are their best-selling pants ever and for good reason. These are durable, comfortable, and have the perfect amount of stretch that allows you a full range of motion and breathability while maintaining a great weight. These versatile twills will already look great with just about everything in your closet!
