What is a flannel shirt?
First things first, let’s clear this up. Flannel refers to the type of fabric the shirt is made out of – not the check print we commonly see on flannel shirts. Flannel is a woven fabric, that we typically see to be made from cotton. Flannel often tends to be brushed to achieve it’s signature softness that we all know and love.
Flannel shirts are a go-to for winter styling due their heavier, warmer design. This year (already) we’ve seen flannel shirts taking over! So to make it easier for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite flannel shirts for men. With options from Lyle & Scott to Kam, we’ve got big and tall flannel shirts in sizes M to 8XL for you to choose from with all of our styling tips.

How to wear flannel shirts?
- Stick to darker denim jeans like black or indigo jeans or black trousers. This will compliment the check design and give your look a put-together finish.
- Layer up with t-shirts to keep you warm throughout winter. Whether it’s a long sleeve tee or a graphic print t-shirt, it’s best to stick to block neutral colours such as black and white. Style your shirt open for a more laid-back look.
- Finally, if you’re needing another layer, opt for a solid coloured coat or jacket to avoid any print clashing.
