The more I've learned and the more time I've spent in retail environments, the more certain I was that I had to share the information with others.

Fit-Related Details To Consider When Shopping For A Flannel Shirt

Shopping for a men's double-pocket flannel shirt can be a fun process, especially given the number of colors and patterns that are available in this type of garment. While the look of a flannel shirt might be the first thing that catches your eye, you need to be sure to try the garment on to ensure that it fits correctly. There are a number of specific fit-related details to consider when you're looking for the right flannel shirt, and pledging that you don't buy anything unless it checks off the following boxes will ensure your satisfaction.


Give some thought to how you plan to wear your flannel shirt. Some men routinely wear these garments tucked in, while others only wear flannel shirts untucked. Sometimes, you might buy a shirt and plan to wear it both ways. If you're a tucked-in type of person, you generally want to choose a shirt that has shirttails that are long enough to stay inside of your pants. Try tucking in the shirt, moving around, and seeing what happens. Conversely, if you're an untucked person, you'll often want a shirt with shorter shirttails so that it doesn't hang down like a skirt.


The versatility of a flannel shirt means that you might sometimes wear it with the sleeves down and rolled up, but also roll up the sleeves on other occasions. Be sure to try both scenarios when you don this garment at your local clothing store. Some shirtsleeves are tight enough that they're uncomfortable to roll up. You want to be confident that rolled sleeves won't dig into your arms. Other shirts have wider sleeves that may not stay up when rolled, so you'll want to check this detail, too.


Flannel comes in a variety of different thicknesses, so this is another important fit-related detail to consider before you buy your shirt. Think about when you plan to wear this shirt and for what activities. If you envision working in your new flannel shirt, a thinner fabric may keep you from feeling too hot. Or, if you're buying a shirt to sit on the deck during the cooler fall months, you may want flannel that is slightly on the thicker side. Taking the time to carefully assess each shirt in each of these ways can help you to buy the right garment that you'll always look forward to pulling out of your closet.
