A single pair of jeans can take 1,500 liters of water to make – these sustainable denim brands are looking to change that

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

Taylor Stitch organic denim

  • On average, it takes 1,500 liters (about 396 gallons) of water to produce a single pair of jeans.
  • Jeans are one of the least eco-friendly clothing items, but brands are taking steps to improve.
  • Here are some of the brands using eco-friendly materials and sustainable production methods.

Jeans are the cornerstone of just about any wardrobe. But as popular as the pants are, they’re actually rather harmful to the environment.

From the pesticides and insecticides used to grow cotton to the massive amounts of water, energy, and chemicals used to process the materials and turn them into denim, jeans rank as one of the least eco-friendly clothing items to make. According to Everlane, it takes about 1,500 liters (that’s roughly 396 gallons) of water to produce a single pair of jeans.

Realistically, those stats aren’t going to prevent anyone from buying jeans. But as responsible consumers, we can do our part by shopping brands that value sustainability in their production methods. So, to point you in the right direction, we rounded up seven brands that are making jeans more sustainably by implementing less wasteful manufacturing techniques and more effective recycling programs.

From startups like Frank And Oak and Outerknown to legacy brands like Levi’s, you won’t have a problem finding denim with high-impact style and low-impact everything else.

7 brands making sustainable denim:

Everlane

Everlane

Slim 4-Way Stretch Organic Jean (small)Authentic Stretch High-Rise Skinny Mid Blue (small)

Everlane has always been about transparency. In addition to prioritizing ethical labor practices, it’s made sustainability a major tenet of its production process.

You’ll find apparel made from recycled plastic in the ReNew Collection along with what the brand calls the “world’s lowest-impact sneakers” from its shoe line, Tread. But jeans are another area Everlane has made huge strides in as far as sustainability goes. 

The jeans are made in Saitex, the world’s cleanest denim factory. The facility recycles 98% of its water and uses clean energy. After the water is recycled, Everlane’s jeans use 0.4 liters of water compared to the whopping 1,500 liters of water per pair when using traditional production methods.

Outerknown S.E.A. Jeans

Outerknown

S.E.A. Jeans (small)

Founded by professional surfer Kelly Slater, Outerknown is self-described as “For the people and the planet.” The brand makes every decision with the highest regard for people that manufacture their products and planet on which they’re produced.

Outerknown’s S.E.A. Jeans are made with 100% organic cotton and are also produced in Saitex’s clean factories. Despite putting a lot of focus on being eco-friendly, Outerknown didn’t cut any corners in terms of quality — and the brand fully stands behind its products with a lifetime guarantee.

If your S.E.A. Jeans ever wear or break, you can send them back and Outerknown will repair or replace them for free.

JFK Skinny Jeans (small)MXP High-Rise Jeans (small)AMS Slim Jeans (small)

Founded by Sarah Ahmed, Warp + Weft has made an impact on the apparel industry with its ultra-inclusive range of sizes and inseams, but it’s also touted as the world’s cleanest vertically integrated denim company (meaning it owns its own factory).

To be completely transparent about its manufacturing process, Warp + Weft gives a look inside its factory, highlighting elements like responsibly sourced cotton, eco-friendly dye, water-saving techniques, and solar power.

Levi’s

Women’s 501 Skinny Jeans (small)Women’s Original Sherpa Trucker Jacket (small)Men’s 511 Slim Fit Jeans (small)Men’s Sherpa Trucker Jacket (small)

Levi’s is one of the biggest — if not the single biggest — denim brand in the world. It’s also one of the most sustainable brands. In 2010, Levi’s launched the Better Cotton Initiative, which trains farmers to use less water, pesticides, insecticides, and synthetic fertilizers when growing cotton plants. And now, the brand has ramped up its sustainability efforts to all aspects of its business. From manufacturing techniques that use organic cotton, less water, and plant-based dyes to introducing a secondhand program where used denim is resold rather than sent to landfills as trash.

So far, Levi’s has saved more than 4.2 billion liters of water and recycled more than 6 billion liters of water. To date, 75% of the brand’s cotton now comes from more sustainable sources and 65% of its products are currently made in factories that run Worker Well-being programs.

Taylor Stitch Organic Selvage

Taylor Stitch organic denim

Organic Selvedge (small)18 Month Wash Organic Selvage (small)

When Taylor Stitch first started producing its signature ’68 Denim in 2011, the brand teamed up with Cone Mills in Greensboro, North Carolina. By relying on the legendary cotton textile company, Taylor Stitch was guaranteed the highest quality American-made selvage denim for its jeans — but when Cone Mills closed doors to its last White Oak plant and the existing supply finally ran out, Taylor Stitch went back to the drawing board with the goal to reproduce the jeans to be more sustainable and better than before.

After spending more than a year looking for the right materials and manufacturer, Taylor Stitch collaborated with ISKO mill, the world’s largest producer of denim in the world, and re-released the ’68 Denim — this time using 100% organic cotton (no pesticides) and sustainable production methods that use far less water, energy, and chemicals.

If you love traditional selvage denim (like myself), the Taylor Stitch Organic Selvage will give you the same exact look and feel you’re after — and you won’t feel bad about wearing them.

Frank And Oak

Frank And Oak

Dylan Slim Stretch Denim (small)Stevie High Waisted Denim (small)

In 2012, childhood friends Ethan Song and Hicham Ratnani founded Frank And Oak with the simple goal of helping men dress better with affordably priced clothing. After far exceeding its initial goal, the brand launched a women’s line and set out to actively reduce its carbon footprint — and denim is one of its main areas of focus.

By teaming up with Hydro-Less Laundry, an eco-certified factory in Dubai, Frank And Oak’s denim production uses 79% less energy, 50% fewer chemicals, and 95% less water than traditional manufacturing techniques. While its conservation efforts are comparable to other brands making sustainable jeans, Frank And Oak stands out with its affordable price.

Regardless of what fit or wash you choose, you can get a pair of Frank And Oak jeans for $89.50 or less.

J.Crew and Madewell

J.Crew

Women’s Jeans (small)Women’s Denim (small)Men’s Jeans (small)Men’s Denim (small)

J.Crew and its sister brand Madewell have teamed up with Fair Trade USA, a non-profit organization that helps brands create better working conditions for employees and implement environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.

In doing so, both J.Crew and Madewell launched their first Fair Trade Certified denim collections. Also made in Saitex factories, the jeans use 75% less water, 65% fewer chemicals, and less energy. 

Beyond the sustainability benefits, J.Crew and Madewell’s jeans provide Saitex factory workers with benefits, equal pay for women, and additional donations to support infrastructure in their local communities in Vietnam. 

And if you’ve got old jeans that you no longer want or need, you can donate them to J.Crew and they’ll work with nonprofits that turn them into housing insulation that can be used by organizations like Habitat for Humanity.

From loafers to brogues, these are the best dress shoes for men in 2021

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

The Brando Semi-Brogue Oxford from Paul Evans

  • While menswear has become more casual, you should still own a good range of dress shoes.
  • There are many styles available to fit your look, budget, and whatever event you’re attending.
  • We’ve rounded up the best dress shoes for men below.

While menswear has become more casual – white leather sneakers with summer suits, for example – it still pays to own a variety of dress shoes. Your sneakers probably won’t cut it at that job interview, wedding, or other formal occasions. You can drop a huge chunk of change on high-end dress shoes, but there are several direct-to-consumer brands that offer top-quality products at reasonable prices.

We’ve kept the selections at below $500, with many around $200 or less that all punch above their weight with the quality you get for the price. At the minimum, when assessing a dress shoe, look for full-grain leather; a Goodyear welt or Blake stitching, and clean, straight, tight stitching.

These are the best dress shoes for men in 2021:

Allen Edmonds

An assortment of boots from Allen Edmonds

Allen Edmonds is quickly approaching its 100th birthday and, unlike many American heritage brands, the company still produces its exceptionally well-crafted shoes in the U.S., at its factory in Port Washington, Wisconsin. Their shoes are highly regarded for the quality of both materials and manufacturing (each shoe goes through a  212-step process), longevity, and timeless elegance. The three selections below are all made of a premium French calfskin that’s supple but sturdy. A cobbler can resole them down the line if need be. The price tag reflects this (the average is about $400), but you’ll get years of wear out of a pair of Allen Edmonds shoes if properly cared for. 

What to buy: 

Park Avenue Cap Toe Oxford (small)Leeds Plain-Toe Blucher (small)McAllister Wingtip Oxford (small)
Moral Code

An assortment of Moral Code dress shoes in a variety of colors

Moral Code is a direct-to-consumer brand that not only produces excellent footwear using premium calfskin leather and Goodyear welting at a great price point ($169), the company also takes sustainability seriously. Their various facilities incorporate renewable energy and other practices, and they don’t use chrome in the tanning process, which can pollute local waterways. The company’s facilities are SA8000® certified through Social Accountability International, a mission-driven NGO, meaning their factories have high ethical standards.  

Moral Code has three collections, including a collaboration with former Green Bay Packer wide-receiver and humanitarian Donald Driver, with a portion of sales going to Driver’s career development programs for underserved families and children. The collection includes Passion, a handcrafted loafer with a chiseled toe and plenty of soft leather padding for added comfort. The Chase, MC’s contemporary blucher, has all the premium qualities of the brand’s other products, but with a chunkier outsole. It’s a really comfortable shoe straight out of the box. Finally, we’ve included a pair of dress boots, Storm, since they’re sleek and minimal and look especially stunning with a slim-fit, double-breasted tweed suit. 

What to buy: 

Passion (small)Chase (small)Storm (small)
Zappos

A pair of Cole Haan dress shoes

Zappos, the online shoe seller, helped redefine the web-based retail world with its fantastic customer service and easy returns and exchanges after launching back in 1999. There are literally thousands of choices for men’s dress shoes on the site, but we’re highlighting three different brands: Cole Haan, Massimo Matteo, and To Boot New York

Cole Haan led the way in introducing innovative technology to create some of the most comfortable dress shoes around. The Grand Ambition Wing-Tip Oxford is one of the more conservative styles for the company that looks less like a sneaker and more like a traditional wing-tip dress shoes but are still ridiculously comfortable. If you’re looking for a dress shoe that’s made in Italy and comes in at under $150 and is stylish and comfortable, the Massimo Matteo Cap Toe may be for you. To Boot New York is known for its handmade Italian footwear that combines old-world tradition, high-end materials, and contemporary style. The Conner features a single monk strap, is lined in leather, and built for both comfort and flexibility, in case you’re planning on hitting the dance floor. 

What to buy: 

Grand Ambition Wing-Tip Oxford (small)Italian Cap Toe (small)Ultra Flex Conner Monk Strap (small)
Ace Marks

Two pairs of men's dress shoes from Ace Marks

Ace Marks, which launched in 2012, is another DTC brand specializing in reasonably priced high-end footwear. The company works with fourth-generation Italian artisans to create handcrafted dress shoes using full-grain calfskin at a fraction of what you’d pay for luxury labels ($250-$325). Unlike many of the American or British brands, Italian dress shoes tend to use Blake stitching instead of Goodyear welts, and Ace Marks is no exception. In Blake stitching, the shoe’s upper is folded underneath the insole and stitched into place. It makes for a lighter, more flexible shoe that can still be resoled, just not as often as with a Goodyear welt. Ace Marks not only offers a stellar choice of styles, they’re lauded for their range of beautiful colors and patinas. 

The brand also has a really cool buy-back program. You can send them your old Ace Marks shoes that are still in wearable condition and get $50 off your next pair. They donate the old ones to Career Gear, a non-profit that provides business-professional attire for men who are trying to re-enter the workforce.

What to buy:

Wholecut Oxford Plain Toe (small)Cap Toe Blucher in Dark Brown & Brown Antique (small)Wingtip Oxford (small)
Nordstrom

The Magnanni Belago Wholecut Oxford boots from Nordstrom

Nordstrom began life in 1901 as a Seattle shoe store, financed in part by Swedish immigrant John Nordstrom’s stake in the Alaska Gold rush. Perhaps because of its roots, Nordstrom has a massive selection of dress shoes, including many high-end options, but a lot of mid-priced selections as well. 

Among the wide variety, are the Spanish luxury footwear brand Magnanni; as well as mid-range brands like Johnston & Murphy and Clarks. Magnanni makes handmade dress shoes using full-grain calf leather from Europe and the Bologna method of construction, which is similar to the Blake method but has the ends of the upper sewn together like a sock and is typically even lighter and more flexible than Blake stitching. The brand is known for its chiseled toes, sleek styling, and hand-painted patinas. We included the Fairfax Loafer by Johnston & Murphy, a heritage American brand, just to prove the loafer can be extremely dressy. This version, in a black patent leather, is made in Italy. Clarks, a British brand that’s been around for nearly 200 years and is probably best known for its desert boots, makes a range of attractive dress shoes that are made for comfortable all-day wear. The Citi Stride Plain Toe Derby falls into the dressy casual category with its  fun two-tone brown colorway and bright red and gold laces that’s tempered by the classic Derby silhouette.

What to buy:

Belago Wholecut Oxford (small)Fairfax Loafer (small)Citi Stride Plain Toe Derby (small)
Beckett Simonon

An assortment of Beckett Simonon dress shoes

Beckett Simonon is a DTC brand that uses a made-to-order model that significantly reduces both the cost to the consumer and helps drive the company’s sustainability efforts since there’s no unsold inventory that could end up in a landfill. Well-compensated, skilled artisans handcraft the shoes in Colombia using Italian full-grain calfskin and Blake stitching. They offer a solid range of styles, including Oxfords, Derbies, wingtips, loafers, and monk straps, in a variety of colors. As mentioned, the company makes sustainability a high priority. They use Gold Rated leather, which comes with high environmental and ethical standards, among other initiatives. The brand has a dedicated fanbase and is often compared with Warby Parker, the DTC eyewear brand that helped reshape that market.  

Beckett Simonon sells their dress shoes for $209, a very fair price for what you get quality wise. The downside is that because of its made-to-order model, it can take between six to 10 weeks to receive your order. Luckily, they’re worth the wait. 

What to buy:

Dean Oxford (small)Anders Split-Toe Derbies (small)Royce Longwings (small)
Florsheim

Two pairs of Florsheim dress shoes

Florsheim is another American heritage brand still around after more than a hundred years in business. It had its start in Chicago in the 1890s and has had some difficulties over the years. In the early 2000s, members of the Florsheim family bought back the brand, which has revitalized the company’s product offerings.    

Florsheim shines when it comes to creating exceedingly comfortable dress shoes with upscale details like breathable leather linings, leather-covered, removable footbeds, and Bologna construction, all offered at a price point that hovers in the $100 range. The company also has a pricier line that’s made in Italy using calfskin and features leather soles rather than rubber. The Imperial line, the brand’s top tier, features Goodyear welting, and hand-burnished uppers. 

What to buy:

Amelio Cap Toe (small)Caravel Wingtip Oxford (small)Imperial Kenmoor II Plain Toe (small)
Taft

An assortment of Taft shoes on shoe boxes

Taft is a Utah-based DTC brand launched in 2013 that’s carved out a space in the market with its unique take on dress shoes and boots that’s given it cult status. Their novel footwear designs often incorporate woven elements, pebbling, hand burnishing, or patterned fabrics, and are meticulously handcrafted by Spanish and Portuguese artisans. No matter what unusual elements the shoes incorporate, they always include full-grain calfskin and, depending on the style, either Goodyear welting or Blake construction with leather outsoles. The brand’s styles run the gamut from Oxfords to monk straps to dress boots. We’ve included a beautiful chocolate brown suede monk strap; an Oxford with a bold floral jacquard fabric; and a stunning long wing brogue featuring woven leather throughout the upper. 

What to buy:

Westminster in Chocolate (small)The Paris Shoe in Eden (small)The Preston in Cognac (small)
Thursday Boot Company

Thursday Boots Company's Lincoln dress shoes

You may be familiar with Thursday Boot Company, the DTC brand that makes exceptional Chelsea boots, and chukkas, but did you know the company also makes dress shoes? Handcrafted in small batches with the same level of detail as the brand’s other products at a reasonable price point ($168 to $175). Their dress shoes are all Goodyear welted for easy resoling and feature leather outsoles and supple glove leather lining. The shoes all have full-grain leather uppers originating in either the U.S., France, or Italy, and a cork midsole that conforms to the shape of your foot for long-wearing comfort. Thursday Boot Company works with artisans and suppliers in Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and the U.S. that have high ethical and environmental standards.

What to buy:

Lincoln Penny Loafer (small)Aviator Wingtip Dress Shoes (small)Saint Double Monk Strap (small)
Paul Evans

The Martin Wholecut Oxford from Paul Evans in Oxblood

Paul Evans, like Ace Marks, is a DTC brand that partners with Italian artisans to create luxurious shoes at a better price point ($425 to $450) than what you’d typically pay from other high-end retailers. The brand uses supple, full-grain calfskin and Blake stitching. They offer sleek, very Italian-style dress shoes—The Martin Wholecut Oxford is a prime example—that have beautifully hand-painted finishes. The company, which is based in New York, works with a family-run century-old factory in Naples. 

These shoes tend to run large, so you’ll probably want to size down one whole size. You can read more here on the brand’s sizing. The company offers free shipping and easy returns.

The 18 best white dress shirts for men

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

dress shirt
  • White dress shirts are the perfect base from which to build your look.
  • There is nothing quite as sharp as a crisp white dress shirt.
  • Even if you’re foregoing a tie, a white dress shirt amps up your style.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Your closet should include some space for white dress shirts, preferably several in varying degrees of formality. The white dress shirt is a perfect base from which to build your look, an essential, like flour in the pantry or vodka in your bar cabinet.

We’ve gathered together some of the best white dress shirts out there, from the very formal that you’re probably only going to wear once or twice a year (but should still own) to everyday workhorses you’ll get plenty of use out of. We’ve included a few Oxfords in the mix, which are defined by their button-down collar and the heavier Oxford cloth they’re made from. Even though some do not consider them true dress shirts, they have become a standby for office wear and de facto dress shirts that just are a bit more laid back.

Here are the best white button-up shirts:

Charles Trywhitt Semi-Spread Egyptian Cotton Deco Weave Shirt

Charles Trywhitt white dress shirt

Charles Trywhitt’s Deco Weave Shirt is made from silky Egyptian cotton and is crisp, classic, and ready for work or play.

Charles Tyrwhitt started out as a British mail-order company in the 1980s but has since grown into an international men’s clothier specializing in dress shirts. The Deco Weave Shirt is made from a silky mid-weight Egyptian cotton fabric with a breathable, textured weave. It has two-button cuffs and a clean front without a pocket, but you can have one added for $8.95.

State & Liberty Springer White with Navy Accents

State & Liberty Springer dress shirt

State & Liberty’s Springer shirt is ultra soft, stretchy, cut to emphasize the athletic, inverted-triangle body shape, and can be worn casually to reveal navy blue accents at the placket and cuffs.

State & Liberty crafts dress shirts and other clothing with comfort, performance, and athletic builds in mind. The Springer looks like a typical white dress shirt but is cut to emphasize the athletic V-body shape and is made from a super soft, stretchy, wrinkle free active-wear performance fabric more commonly found in your workout gear. The Springer looks great with a suit and tie but can also be worn more casually, revealing a pop of navy blue at the placket, and inside the collar and cuffs.

The Tie Bar Herringbone White Non-Iron Dress Shirt

Tie Bar Herringbone white dress shirt

The Tie Bar Herringbone non-iron white dress shirt comes in a wide range of sizes, has a subtle herringbone pattern, and comes with a reasonable price tag.

The direct-to-consumer brand Tie Bar has made its name with ties and formalwear that are well made and priced right at $55 or three for $140. Their Herringbone non-iron white dress shirt features a subtle herringbone pattern with a slight sheen for a little something extra, a semi-spread collar, and a little more length at the hem so your shirt stays tucked in. It’s made from 100 percent cotton but is specially treated so it won’t wrinkle after being washed and dried and stays looking crisp all day long.

The British heritage brand T. M. Lewin has been around for more than 120 years, so they know how to make a dress shirt that looks good, feels good, and will stay that way for a long time. I have T. M. Lewin dress shirts that are more than a decade old and still look smashing, so to say they’re durable is an understatement. Plus, they’ll help bring a polish to whatever you pair them with. The Non-Iron Twill Button Cuff Fitted Shirt is a wash-and-wear classic with a flattering cut for most body shapes.

I wanted to highlight Merino wool as a dress shirt fabric option as it’s an amazing material that’s cooling in the summer and warming in winter, naturally wrinkle and odor resistant, lightweight but sturdy, and has a wonderful handfeel. While it’s difficult to get a true white with wool, this version from the Italian company Reda is the closest I’ve seen. Further, Proper Cloth lets you customize this shirt from the cuffs to the yoke.

Todd Snyder’s design aesthetic sits squarely in the American classic style, so it makes sense the brand would tap Texas-based Hamilton, which has been around since 1883 and still makes its shirts by hand in the U.S, for an exclusive Tuxedo shirt. The fabric is woven in Italy from Egyptian cotton. This classic shirt has French cuffs (the material folds back on itself and requires cufflinks), a sewn collar, and mother-of-pearl buttons. With its spread collar, this beauty also proves a suburb-looking tux shirt doesn’t require a wing tip collar.

  • Athleisure is one of the fastest-growing and most popular categories in fashion right now.
  • Clothing from athleisure brands is comfortable and can be worn for lounging, working out, and more.
  • Below, we’ve rounded up all of the best athleisure brands we’ve ever worn.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

Over the past few years, athleisure has been one of the fastest-growing categories in clothing, but right now it’s more popular than ever – and for good reason. Drawing cues from true performance athletic wear and cozier loungewear styles, athleisure fills the gap between the two categories, making these pieces some of the most versatile clothes you can own and wear.

Whether you’re shopping for clothing that’s stylish enough for Zoom meetings yet comfortable enough for sitting on your couch, or you want clothes that you can wear to work out in before running errands and grabbing lunch, athleisure has you covered for it all.

Think of it as the easiest way to get dressed for daily life without having to put much thought and effort into it. No longer will you have to choose between form and function when it comes to your clothes.

Here are the best athleisure brands for men in 2021:

Nike

Nike

Nike‘s clothing is dependable, sporty, and fashionable all at the same time.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from XS-3XL.

Nike has a massive selection of tried-and-true sportswear that’s been backed by some of the world’s best athletes. The iconic branding translates well to the full spectrum of style — from casual everyday wearers to sneakerheads and streetwear enthusiasts. In other words, pretty much anyone can wear Nike products and look good in them too.

Nike is relatively affordable, provides unisex clothing, and has a generous size range. On top of that, you’ll be able to find comfy pullovers and sweatpants for a chill day at home or training sets for running.

What to buy:

Feat Clothing

Feat Clothing

If comfort is your number one priority, Feat is where you’ll want to shop.

Sizing options: S-XXL, most pieces have a relaxed, oversized fit.

You’ve probably seen Feat all over Instagram, and if you haven’t tried it already, now is the time. Founded in 2015, Feat makes comfortable daily essentials like hoodies, sweatshirts, and sweatpants — and when I say they’re by far the most comfortable athleisure brand on the market, I mean it.

The brand’s standout products are the BlanketBlend Hoodie and Crewnecks. Think of them as your most comfortable, warm, and cozy blankets turned into your best-fitting tops. Together, the combination makes for pieces you’ll never want to take off.

What to buy:

BlanketBlend Hoodie (small)BlanketBlend Crewneck (small)Roam Performance Short (small)Roam Performance Pant (small)
Vuori

Vuori

Vuori’s clothing is lightweight and comfortable, making it a breeze to both live in and work out in.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from XS-XXL. 

It’s obvious that Vuori takes its inspiration from the beach that’s just a stone’s throw away from its headquarters in Encinitas, California. So naturally, its clothes maintain an easy, laidback California aesthetic that is effortlessly cool without looking sloppy.

Whether you’re looking for stretchy performance pants or ventilated performance tees, Vuori has you covered. 

What to buy:

Tradewind Performance Shirt (small)Banks Short (small)Ease Performance Half Zip (small)Ponto Performance Pants (small)
Uniqlo

Uniqlo

If you simply need a good T-shirt without spending a lot of money, Uniqlo’s Dry T-shirts are the way to go. 

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from XXS-3XL. 

Although Uniqlo isn’t an athleisure brand specifically, it’s my favorite place to get comfortable basics at affordable prices. You’ll find an array of T-shirts, shorts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, hoodies, and other pieces that fall into the category of athleisure. 

The brand does a great job of offering variety and budget-friendly options. AIRism, a lightweight material that makes clothes more breathable, UV Protection, which blocks sunlight, BLOCKTECH, a water-resistant material, and HEATTECH, a warmth-trapping material, are just some of the many technologies you can find.

What to buy:

Dry Color Crew Neck Short-Sleeve T-Shirt (small)Men Washed Jersey Easy Shorts (small)Men AIRism UV Protection Full-Zip Hoodie (small)Men Cargo Jogger Pants (small)
Rhone

Rhone

Rhone‘s athleisure clothing is made with its special GoldFusion technology, which keeps odors at bay no matter how long your day drags on.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from S-XXL.

Back in 2016, Rhone managed to raise nearly $113,000 to bring GoldFusion technology to its line of activewear. And now, it can be found in a wide range of both activewear and athleisure clothing. 

GoldFusion technology is Rhone’s proprietary, eco-friendly fabric treatment that leverages real gold particles to help fabrics dry up to three times faster. It helps keep your clothes fresh longer, too, which is perfect for high-intensity workouts. We’ve tested a handful of items from the brand and have loved them all. The Commuter Jogger is a personal favorite — it’s incredibly versatile and comfortable.

Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder

Todd Snyder fuses old-school style with high-quality materials to make super stylish, yet sporty clothes.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from XS-L. 

Todd Snyder is an all-encompassing menswear brand, but its Champion collection specifically is a great place to find stylish athleisure wear. The collaboration brings together the best of both worlds — high-end looks from Todd Synder and the undeniable sportswear history from Champion — to create timeless pieces you’ll want to wear casually and during workouts.

Todd Snyder has sweatpants, shorts, T-shirts, hoodies, and a lot more — and everything is available in plenty of colorways, so you can pick out your favorite shades or stock up on a few good ones to rotate between.

What to buy:

Muscle Tee (small)Midweight Warm Up Shorts (small)Midweight Popover Hoodie (small)Utility Cargo Sweatpant (small)
Adidas

Adidas

If you’re a fan of the classics, then look no further than Adidas to supply you with great performance gear that looks good too.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most pieces range from XS-3XL. 

Even with the emergence of what seems like an endless supply of athleisure brands focused more on the leisure than the athlete component of their names, one company has maintained a position at the top of the mountain. And that company is Adidas. As one of the most sought-after brands worldwide, Adidas has you covered with athletic wear or fits for running errands. Thanks to a wide range of styles, Adidas can match just about any aesthetic, too. While many of its bestsellers are the brand’s trademark sneakers, you can also find a great selection of performance clothes that work well at the gym and for hanging out.

What to buy:

Trefoil Tee (small)3-Stripes Shorts (small)Z.N.E. Full-Zip Hoodie (small)Ultimate 365 3-Stripes Tapered Pants (small)
Public Rec

Rhone

Brought to life by a former JP Morgan banker, Public Rec makes the kind of athleisure clothing that you’d be comfortable wearing to work.

Sizing options: Varies by style. Most pants range from 28-44 waist with multiple inseam options available. Tops range from S-XXL. 

It started with a pair of sweatpants so popular that it attracted a 1,200-person waitlist — and things have ballooned from there. Public Rec specializes in technical leisure apparel for men, operating under the mantra that if you feel good, you’ll look good. The original bestseller is, of course, the All Day Every Day Pant. We tested them out and while they feel like sweatpants, they’re sized more like jeans, which means that they fit your body instead of hanging off of them. You’ll feel totally at ease wearing these pants out and about in your daily life, and if you’re working in a more casual environment, you could certainly wear them to the office as well.

What to buy: 

Go-To Tee (small)Flex Short (small)Weekend Full Zip (small)All Day Every Day Pant (small)
Twillory

Twillory

Twillory might be best known for its performance dress shirts, but the brand’s venture into athleisure shouldn’t be overlooked.

Sizing options: Varies by style, but most options range from S-2XL. 

The collection includes a zip-up hoodie, joggers, T-shirts, polos, and henleys — and they’re all designed to be stretchy, moisture-wicking, cooling, and quick-drying.

However, the standout pieces are the joggers and the hoodie. The joggers have a nicely tapered fit, slanted side pockets, and a single pocket on the right side of the rear. Combined with the pattern of the material, these joggers look more like your favorite chinos than a sloppy pair of gym sweats.

The hoodie, which comes in matching materials and colors, is just as comfortable and completes the set. You can save $20 when you bundle the Athlounger Joggers and Athlounger Hoodie

What to buy: 

Performance Tee (small)Athlounger Hoodie (small)Athlounger Jogger (small)
Oliver’s Apparel

Olivers Apparel

Olivers Apparel covers the full gamut of athleisure with workout gear, loungewear, and performance gear you can get away with at work.

Olivers Apparel came to life after a 2013 Kickstarter and has since become one of the best brands for stylish athletic wear. If your sense of fashion is clean and simple, then Olivers is perfect for you. While many sportswear brands use bold colors and patterns on its gear, many of Olivers’ clothes use solid colors and logo-less designs. 

Some of our favorite items include the Classic Sweatpants made from Supima cotton, and the Convoy Tee, which is made from 100% merino for a cozy, yet relaxed fit. 

What to buy: 

Apparel Surge Tee (small)Classic Hoodie (small)Classic Joggers (small)All Over Short (small)

Everlane

We love Everlane for everything from its cashmere sweaters and jeans to footwear and outerwear. The brand’s products are always responsibly made with a high level of quality and keen attention to style. 

While you can always rely on Everlane to find clothes that will help you look your best, you can also rely on them to find clothes that will help you feel your best.

These stylish flannel shirts are the perfect pieces for heading into fall weather

Taylor Stitch

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

  • Flannel shirts are warm, comfortable, and cozy, yet rugged and functional.
  • As one of the most versatile cold-weather pieces, flannels can be worn in fall, winter, and spring.
  • Whether you want to wear them casually or for tough outdoor trips, here are the best flannel shirts.

Love or hate flannels all you want, but there’s no denying how functional they can be. And if you pick the right patterns and colors, they help you stay stylish with little effort.

As a cornerstone to cold-weather dressing, flannels can be however you want them to be used. From dressing casually or layering up for an outdoor excursion, the warmth, comfort, and versatility of flannel shirts make them a must-have garment in your closet.

Depending on the weight and thickness of a flannel shirt, you can generally wear them during the fall, winter, and early spring.

Whether you’re looking for a classic Buffalo plaid flannel to complete a signature fall outdoors look or a more fashion-forward color or pattern, you’ll find all of the best places to buy men’s flannels below.

It’s worth noting that anyone can wear a men’s size flannel. The overall cut and fit of men’s flannels is usually boxier and bigger than women’s flannels.

Here are the best flannel shirt brands for men:

Woolrich

woolrich

Woolrich has been making flannel since 1850, which is nearly as long as the brand has been making clothes, and its flannel shirts are the best of the best.

Oxbow Buffalo Check Shirt (small)

Sizing options: XS-XL

Woolrich makes a sturdy flannel, but make no mistake: The shirts are as soft as can be before they ever see the inside of a washing machine. I have had several Woolrich shirts over the years, and if it were not for my younger brother stealing them to go around skateboard parks, I’m confident that they’d still be here today.

In 1850, Woolrich became the first brand to design a Buffalo Check shirt and the Oxbow Flannel is a modern iteration of the original design.

Made from 100% soft brushed cotton, the Oxbow Buffalo Check Shirt is soft against skin, and warm enough to be worn as a jacket. Whether you wear it outdoors or in city streets, the timeless design is one that will stand out.

 

Pendleton

pendletonguideshirt

Pendleton offers such a dizzying array of woolen and cotton flannel shirts, it might be hard to know where to start, but every piece is well made.

Men’s Long Sleeve Board Shirt (small)

Sizing options: XS-3XL

In 1863, Thomas Kay sailed down the Atlantic Seaboard of the United States, rode across what was then the Isthmus of Panama, and sailed up the Pacific Coast in search of a place to raise sheep and produce wool. He found it in Pendleton, Oregon, where he started his own mill in 1889. His legacy has remained there ever since, and Kay’s family still owns and operates the brand along with its facilities and retail stores.

In 1929, Pendleton put out its first line of virgin wool sportswear, and the brand has been producing excellent flannel shirts ever since.

Pendleton has changed the way its flannel is made over the years, of course. First and foremost, the wool isn’t harvested in the United States anymore, but the company does still weave material here. Now that flannel has come into popular fashion, you can find a strong array of hues to choose from. The fabrics used are also water-, odor-, and stain-resistant.

Uniqlo

20482056_154437438445222_2198649060821303296_n

Brushed on both sides, Uniqlo’s flannel shirts are soft as anything, and half the price of most of our picks.

Men’s Checked Flannel (small)

Sizing options: XXS-3XL

Based in Japan, Uniqlo has been making clothes since the 1940s, but it only began to reach US shores in 2005. Since then, its wares have become something of a chic-but-utilitarian staple in many wardrobes. And why not? It’s affordable, well-made clothing that fits the bill for most. 

Uniqlo is somewhat synonymous with the word “cheap” in Japan while, oddly enough in New York, you might even hear the adjective “cool” used to describe the company’s line of modestly-priced, ergonomically-designed sportswear. Why? It’s hard to say for sure, but a straightforward and simplistic (albeit scientific) design that leaves room for comfort doesn’t hurt.

Uniqlo covers the gamut of plaid patterns with its flannel. The shirts also come mildly tailored, so while they may not be the trendiest take on flannel, they don’t exactly look frumpy, either. 

Outerknown

Outerknown Blanket Shirt

Outerknown’s Blanket Shirts are some of the softest we’ve tried. They’re also 100% organic down to the buttons.

Blanket Shirt (small, Preferred: Outerknown)

Sizing options: S-XXL, runs big

Sustainability doesn’t always have to come at a premium, but sometimes it’s worth the splurge. These Blanket Shirts are Outerknown’s iteration of a “work shirt” or “shacket,” as you please, but they maintain their softness and don’t pill like many other higher-end rivals.

There’s nothing like getting out of the water on a brisk evening and tossing one of these on while I change out of a wetsuit. And, of course, I can stroll right back into town feeling fresh — and warm — as a daisy. I’d say I’d keep buying these shirts for years to come, but because of the craftsmanship that goes into them, I know I’ll do just fine with the two I’ve got for the foreseeable future.

Amir Ismael, our on-staff senior reporter and style guru, recently began wearing Outerknown’s Blanket Shirts and offered similar praise:

“As thick and heavy as the Outerknown Blanket Shirt may be, it actually has great versatility throughout the seasons. It’s good for late summer nights on cool and breezy beaches, layering in the fall and winter, or even leaving at your desk when it’s cold in the office.

The relaxed fit makes it comfortable to wear, but if you want it to be more fitted, I’d recommend sizing down. I’m 5-foot-5 and about 135 pounds, and the size small was slightly oversized (I had to cuff the sleeves for a better fit).”

Fjallraven

Fjallraven

Far from fast fashion, Fjallraven makes some of the most technical and warm flannels we’ve tested.

Skog Shirt (small)Canada Shirt (small)

Sizing options: XS-XXL

Based in Sweeden, it’s no surprise that Fjallraven knows how to exceptionally great cold-weather pieces like flannels. The brand has spent the last 50 years making top-notch outdoor gear that’s environmentally responsible and built to last.

Two of my favorite flannel shirts from Fjallraven are the Skog Shirt and the Canada Shirt. 

Taking on the look and feel of a traditional flannel, the Skog shirt is a mid-weight piece made from 100% organic cotton. It features a button-down collar, chest pockets, with a pen hole, and buttons to hold rolled-up sleeves in place. If you’re looking for a multi-seasonal this is a solid choice.

The Canada Shirt, on the other hand, is a much heavier and rugged garment. Made from the brand’s signature G-1000 material (65% polyester, 35% cotton, 45% acrylic, 25% polyester, 25% wool, and 5% other fibers) is warm and could be worn as a jacket in certain weather.

I found the blend of material to be a bit itchy when directly on my skin, but considering how heavy the garment is, I usually only wear it when it’s cold enough to wear it with a layer underneath. The snap buttons make it easy to fasten, even when your hands are freezing cold. — Amir Ismael

Taylor Stitch

Taylor Stitch

Taylor Stitch is a San Francisco-based menswear brand that designs high-quality wardrobe essentials “responsibly built for the long haul.”

Yosemite Shirt (small)

Sizing options: XS-XXL

While the brand offers everything from denim and chinos to T-shirts and sweatsuits, the Yosemite Shirt is one of its best offerings.

Made using 9 ounces of 100% cotton flannel chamois, the mid-weight flannel is perfect for three seasons. It’s soft enough to wear next to skin in mild weather, but also a very warm piece for layering in the cold of winter. 

Overall, the Yosemite Shirt takes a no-frills approach to design. Classic elements like two chest pockets, a California collar, and a shorter hem meant to be worn untucked make it a shirt anyone can easily wear, whether for style or utility. The quality of the garment is what makes it so special. — Amir Ismael

 

 

What else we’ve considered

toadncotop

Faherty: These work shirts, or “shackets,” might not exactly classify as flannels, but we think they’re close enough in terms of material at the very least. And if not, they’re a worthy substitute for the rudimentary Buffalo Check that pervades most people’s closets. Faherty also has a line of true flannels.

The shirts are soft, flattering, and can be worn out and about in a slightly more elevated fashion than a Baja poncho. If busy patterns or stripes aren’t your things, Faherty’s shirts come in monochromatic colors, too. We’re still a fan of these shirts, but a good bit of use has lead to pilling, and while choosing to dry clean them would prevent this, we think that’s a little too much work for flannel. If you’re willing to toss them into the dry cleaning pile, though, we’re all for Faherty’s work shirts.

L.L.Bean: A tried and true classic, this brand’s shirts are known by all and worn by many, but the cuts tend to be frumpy and we think you can get better, more sustainably sourced fabric for less.

Patagonia: Patagonia makes outstanding flannel, and it’s also almost wholly sustainable, but it’s a little pricier, and there are less solid colors to choose from if you’re not into plaid.

Toad&Co.: We chose United By Blue over Toad&Co. as the best sustainable flannel because they use equally responsible materials and manufacturing processes, but also have more of a fashion-forward style. However, as our previous pick for best sustainable, Toad&Co. is still a very solid choice.

Insider Reviews senior reporter Owen Burke said, “I received a Flannagan flannel shirt from Toad&Co. a little under a year ago, and I wore it all fall, winter, and spring, until it was time to break out the linen shirts. It suffered through countless washes in both my cheap-as-hell, garment-shredding washer and drier (no, really, they’ve killed many a shirt), and as I wear it today, there’s not a loose thread, button, or stitch upon it.”
