Classic Buffalo Check Flannel


Buy at Amazon

You can never go wrong with a classic buffalo-check flannel, especially when it comes to blue.  We own this comfy button-down and can’t say enough good things about it.  And we’re not alone, as it currently has more than 26,000 reviews on Amazon!  In fact, more than 75% of reviewers gave this a 5-star rating.  It even comes in more than 40 different colors and patterns to choose from.

Editor’s Tip:  Pair these with either a dark pair of jeans or your favorite light pair.  Toss a long-sleeve tee underneath and keep it unbuttoned for a more casual look.

Discount Availability:  Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t provide discounts, but if you have Prime you can get free 2-day shipping and returns.  We’ll update the above price when it goes on sale.

The Comfy Blanket Shirt

$74 ( 50% Off! )

Buy at Outerknown

If you’re looking for, not only, a really comfy option that legit feels like you’re wearing a blanket and are looking to support a company that’s focusing on sustainability, you gotta check out Outerknown (they also have some amazing swim trunks). They use a heavyweight organic cotton that’ll keep you warm and feeling great, whether you’re sporting this one in the early fall, dead of winter, or even early spring.

Editor’s Tip:  This should fit pretty true to size, but if you want a bit of a more fitted look we typically shop the medium size.  Don’t worry, it won’t look slim – it fits just right.

Discount Availability:  If you’re a first time buyer, you can sign up for their emails and get 15% off your first order.  Get all their latest offers here.

All-Season Flannel Shirt
LL Bean


Buy at Nordstrom

Some flannel shirts can be way to hot, but this best-seller from LL Bean really is perfect for just about any season (ok, well not really summer, but you get the point).  It’s relatively light-weight and has moisture-wicking so it’ll put the sweat from you if you’re a sweaty mess like we typically are no matter what the temperature.

Editor’s Tip:  It’s one of our favorites but, yeah, it’s lightweight so if you’re looking for something that’ll keep you toasty warm in the dead of the winter, you’ll want to layer this one up a bit.  A long-sleeve tee underneath will do the trick.

Discount Availability:  This one is found on Nordstrom, so they’ll provide free shipping and free returns.  However, if you shop direct at LL Bean you can get 10% off when you sign up for their emails or 10% off if you’re a student, teacher, medical pro, military pro, etc.  Get all their offers here.

The Brushed Solid Flannel


Buy at Everlane

If you’re not looking for the traditional plaid look, you’ll love this comfy solid option from Everlane.  It’s still 100% cotton, has two button flap pockets on the front, and will still give you that cozy feeling you’ve been looking for.  Currently this one comes in heather-navy and thyme color options.

Editor’s Tip:  It fits totally true to size, but keep in mind this one is a slim fit (which we prefer), but if you want less of a slim look, we recommend to go a size up.

The Classic Red Buffalo Check

$20.99 (9% Off!)

Buy at Amazon

No matter what the options are out there this season, the classic red buffalo check shirt is always our favorite and our go-to.  We actually wear ours regularly. Nothing says let’s go apple picking or happy holidays quite like the red and black option.  This one is super comfy and fits perfectly. They offer a few additional red options too, so stock up!

Editor’s Tip:  This one is a regular cut/fit and true to size so if you’re looking for something that’s a little more fitted you can always go with the medium – depending on the look you’re going for.

Discount Availability: Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t provide discounts, but if you have Prime you can get free 2-day shipping and returns.  We’ll update the above price when it goes on sale.

The Stretch Seaview Flannel


Buy at Faherty

One of our recent favorite brand we’ve been buying from lately is Faherty.  They seem to have the coolest options for guys but, more importantly, everything seems to just fit perfectly and is always so comfortable.  Like, the most comfortable.  This one is made from 100% organic cotton and is woven in a way that gives it a little bit of extra stretch, which just makes it even more comfy. Check it out in four different colors and pattern options.

Editor’s Tip:  Their claim to fame is that these shirts are not too slim and not too boxy – they fit just right.  So you can go with what your standard size is.  We prefer ours a little more fitted (just slightly) so we go with their mediums that make all the difference for us.

Discount Availability:  Get an extra 15% off when you sign up for their emails.  You can also get $50 when you refer a friend (they’ll get $50 off too).  Get all their offers here.

The Natural Dyed Fjord Flannel Shirt


Buy at Backcountry

If you haven’t checked out Backcountry yet, you’re 100% missing out.  They have a ton of the best brands guys love and a bunch of hidden gems when you can’t find what you’re looking for anywhere else.  Another great option when you want the comfort and warmth of flannel, but already have every plaid combo known to man.  This one comes in a natural hex grey and a natural khaki – both look great with dark jeans.

Editor’s Tip:  This one is a super warm and heavyweight option, so if you run hot normally you may want to skip the jacket over it.

Discount Availability:  Get an extra 20% off if you fall under one of their everyday heroes category.  Get all their offers here.
