Fall and winter are the best times to nurture your inner lumberjack. That mean flannel. Lots and lots of flannel. You can cater to the woodsy aesthetic without going full-blown lumbersexual with a few outfit essentials that when assembled correctly, have the benefit of both form and function. Especially when you’re dealing with an icy hellscape that had the audacity to cover not only your driveway, but your car and dog who is currently dripping all over your wood floor.
We already spoke to some key winter items in our holiday gift guide, but today we’re going to concentrate on the illustrious flannel shirt. We’ll run the gamut of lighter weight flannels you won’t sweat through while picking up your fair trade, microbrew coffee, to flannel outerwear that will get the respect it deserves while you haul logs in the snow.
Even better? You can find all the best flannel gems on Amazon. Most come with free two-day shipping for Prime members, so you won’t be left in the cold for long.
Here are the 12 Best Men’s Flannel Shirts On Amazon
Goodthreads Men’s Slim-Fit Long-Sleeve Buffalo Plaid Herringbone Shirt
Slim fitting and outfitted with a herringbone weave and buffalo plaid, this updated take on a traditional staple is your weekend-ready option that can also go nicely under a navy blazer. This is for the guy who has no issue with being outside, but also rented a woodsy Airbnb that comes with a hot tub to complement the great outdoors.
Rothco Heavy Weight Plaid Flannel Shirt
Heavier duty flannel should be at the front and center of any aspiring lumberjack’s wardrobe, as it can take a beating and will survive the washing machine’s wrath for years on end. Take this out for a spin with your Carhartt beanie to truly get the full effect.
Wolverine Two-Sided Brushed Flannel Shirt
With a soft flannel feeling on both sides of the shirt, this heavy-duty pick takes the grunt work out of keeping you warm in the discerning man’s cold winter wardrobe. Vest and stiff drink to enjoy alongside a roaring bonfire not included.
Columbia Flannel Shirt
A fun but not ostentatious plaid paired with a lighter weight flannel that would complement a more casual office setting make this an ideal option for both town and country (it’s okay I hate me too). But you know what you won’t hate? A flannel shirt that will look good, feel good and garner compliments from even the more hard to please of the opposite sex.
With a soft sherpa interior lining, this is a flannel that’s ready to take on the great outdoors and all its perils. Like seeing your ex at that quaint outdoor farmer’s market with a similarly clad flannel bro. However, yours is lined with sherpa, therefore softening any emotional blow and you have whiskey in your coffee so you win.
Lee Flannel Button Down Shirt
Garment washed for that already lived-in feel and awash with golden overtones that are muted enough for a wintry feel, this is an easy choice for the bro-on-the-go with a budget.
Woolrich Oxbow Blend Modern Blend Flannel Shirt
A rich forest of green checks and allover texture takes this Woolrich option a step further than the boring (but warm) flannel you already have in your closet. Bear in mind that ‘modern fit’ equates to ‘slimmer’ so take how much you plan on letting lose this holiday season into account before selecting your size.
Amazon Essentials Long-Sleeve Plaid Flannel Shirt
A mid-weight flannel with an allover plaid completes a trendy yet timeless look. The name doesn’t lie — at this price it’s truly an essential and a mindless pick when you need a shirt quickly (and with free shipping).
Wrangler Shirt Jacket with Hood
We’d be remiss to not include a flannel shirt jacket, especially one with a hood. This one even includes quilted lining, so it can be used as outerwear or as a mid-layer if it’s really freezing out. This is for the dude who knows he’s going to be outside for a while and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
Volcom Classic Flannel Long Sleeve Shirt
With 20% of the proceeds going towards the effort to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, this is a shirt that not only looks good, but does good. Reminder – whenever anything says ‘modern fit’ they’re catering towards a slimmer guy.
Wrangler Men’s Flannel Lined Workshirt
Want flannel on the interior of your shirt but not so much the front facing part? This work shirt is flannel lined on the front and back and quilted on the interior of the sleeves. This is less of a bar hopping shirt, but more of, ‘I’m spending an evening in the basement working on wood shelving and a bottle of whiskey.”
Levi’s Dottson Long Sleeve Flannel Shirt
Yet another one-click wonder that will be at your door within hours, this Levi’s plaid flannel is a classic that can take a beating. Kind of like a Yule Log that you have every intention of destroying but will have fun in the process of doing so. Plus, an all cotton construction makes this a machine washable option that won’t add to your dry cleaning bill.
