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.”

An e-gift card to Warby Parker for the daily glasses-wearer

last minute gifts

Warby Parker e-gift cards, available at Warby Parker, from $50

Glasses have become a means of helping people to express their individual sense of style, a trend only bolstered by stylish online glasses retailers. Warby Parker has managed to make prescription glasses affordable (a baseline pair starts at just $95, including lenses), but even if your giftee doesn’t wear prescription glasses, the company also makes non-prescription sunglasses that are equally as good-looking. Digital gift cards are delivered to your recipient’s email immediately.

A wine subscription for new bottles delivered right to their door

Winc

Wine Delivery gift card, available at Winc, from $50

Winc is a wine delivery subscription that brings the good stuff right to your recipient’s door. Users take a quiz and share information about their taste preferences before receiving expert recommendations about bottles they may like. They can choose what to include in their box, and since each bottle is priced individually, they can control the cost of each delivery. Gift cards can be emailed to the recipient and used toward the cost of a box (or a few, if you’re feeling extra generous). 

A BarkBox subscription for anyone who’s just a little too obsessed with their dog

BarkBox

Dog Treats Subscription Box, available at BarkBox, from $35/month

Whether they just got a new puppy or they’ve had one for a while now, you can’t go wrong with a BarkBox subscription for any dog parent. To give it as a gift, simply input the name of their pup and its relative size (small, medium, or large), and select a one-, three-, six-, or 12-month increment. You can send the box directly to their house or purchase a digital gift card, which can be redeemed immediately.

A coffee subscription to help them stay caffeinated

atlas coffee gear patrol full lead

Coffee Subscription Box, available at Atlas Coffee Club, $60/3 months

Atlas makes some of our favorite coffee out there, and it fresh roasts each batch before sending it out so you know the coffee you’ll get hasn’t been sitting on a shelf for six months. Any caffeine fiend will love receiving beans or grounds direct to their door each month, giving you extra brownie points each time.

A gift card to frame their art or photos

Framebridge, from $25

Framebridge gift card, available at Framebridge, from $25

Everyone appreciates having a beautiful frame for their photos, posters, or artwork — but no one actually likes paying for it themselves. They’ll enjoy the chance to custom frame something for her home with Framebridge. Bonus points if you also print and send cute family photos for her to frame.

A fun and convenient way to freshen up their wardrobe

47094239_743263826029082_6040427101557882880_o

Personalized Styling Service Gift Card, available at Stitch Fitch, from $20

It’s natural to settle into a dressing routine, but if you sense that they’re no longer excited by their closet, a Stitch Fix gift card is the perfect solution. Recipients can try out different brands and styles that they wouldn’t ordinarily buy, and it’s easy to return pieces with the provided prepaid shipping labels.

A travel-planning service that does all the work for them

Airbnb Gift Card, available at Airbnb, from $25

For the person who is currently dreaming about where to go post-pandemic, this gift card will help ensure their next trip is stellar. Airbnb has thousands of listings for private home vacation rentals around the globe and across the US. They can choose from premium Luxe listings like a villa in Malibu, find a location close to a national park for outdoor exploration, or opt for a unique getaway like a tree house rental.

This is also a thoughtful option for anyone who has to travel right now since experts and the CDC note that private home rentals are currently safer than hotel stays.

A customizable suitcase

CALPAK

CALPAK gift card, available at CALPAK, from $25

Ordering a piece of luggage that best suits them will take too long if you’re strapped for time, plus you might not know exactly what they like. You’re better off giving a gift card so they can choose from plenty of fun options. From confetti to marble patterns, CALPAK offers suitcase designs for every traveler. 

An Echo Dot for the smart-home enthusiast

Amazon Echo Dot 2020

Amazon Echo Dot, available at Best Buy, $44.99

If you have at least one days’ worth of foresight, the new Echo Dot is a great last-minute gift that won’t require much effort. Whether you know for a fact that they have just started outfitting their home with smart capabilities, or you at least have a suspicion that they’d enjoy the convenience of having Alexa around to answer questions and play games, the Dot is a great pick. 

A Birchbox subscription for beauty and skincare lovers

Birch Box

Birchbox Subscription Box, available at Birchbox, from $84/6 months

There’s a reason Birchbox is so popular — it’s a super affordable way to find and learn about new beauty, skincare, and grooming products without the risk of spending too much on full-sized options the recipient might not like. For $30-$45, you’ll be able to gift three months’ worth of boxes right to their door. For a more substantial option, you can gift six months for $84, or 12 months for $156.  

A Blue Apron subscription

last minute gifts 1

Blue Apron Subscription Gift, available at Blue Apron, choose your amount

Blue Apron’s meal kits are the perfect last-minute gift for anyone who enjoys cooking but lacks the time or foresight to do the planning and prepping involved. It costs $47.95 for two servings of two recipes each week, so they’ll save time shopping and prepping meals, which is arguably worth more than the price of the subscription.

A salami of the month club for the meat lovers

Olympia Provisions Artisanal Salami, available at Food52, from $40

You know the type — always orders a charcuterie board, could survive on prosciutto, prefers savory over sweet. Spoil your giftee with a salami delivery, and hope they invite you over for a dinner party soon when we can all get together again. 

A hot sauce subscription for heat seekers

10 stylish and highly functional wallets for women – from Leatherology, Bellroy, and more

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

best womens wallet
  • We tried out some of the best wallets on the market, including bifold, zippered, and travel styles.
  • Form, function, and storage were all considered in determining which wallets are worth purchasing.
  • Some wallets include special features such as RFID-blocking technology and water-resistant fabrics.

If you’re the kind of person who’s stored every credit card you have in your smartphone and can’t remember the last time you counted exact change at a bodega counter, perhaps your need for a highly functional wallet is quite low. For everyone else, keep reading.

While it may be tempting to purchase a new wallet based on aesthetics alone, those who rely on the functionality of the accessory know the best styles offer a decent amount of storage space, make its contents easily accessible, and fit well into most styles of handbags. The specifications change still when it comes to travel wallets where a sleek design should ideally house a passport (or two) as well as travel documents, so that you never have to fumble around at TSA.

Therefore, in deciding which wallets made the cut, we based our judgment on aesthetics, fit, and the convenience of its use. We inspected, primarily in person, the feel and look of the materials, while also filling up the interior and exterior storage space to determine how functional the items would be with extended use. We also took into account which wallets have the most thoughtful organization, how the product looked and felt in person, the overall value, as well as other features such as radio-frequency identification (RFID) blocking, water-resistant finishes, and sustainably sourced materials. With all this in mind, the below 10 options offer superior design and function across bifold, zipper, and travel styles. It doesn’t hurt that they’re nice to look at too.

Here are the best wallets for women in 2021:

Mansur Gavriel Trifold Wallet

Mansur Gavriel Trifold Wallet

Trifold Wallet (small)

Pros: Soft, high-quality leather and a minimalist design

Cons: Limited interior storage space for those who tend to use their wallet as a workhorse

Mansur Gavriel is a fashion brand that’s known for its minimalist, chic designs and the viral success of its leather pieces. This trifold wallet is a small, simplified design that keeps you covered on the essentials: three credit card slots, interior coin pocket, and a place to keep a few dollar bills secured. It’s for those who want to keep the contents of their bag as pared back as their style.

The wallet really nails the first impression with its soft-to-the-touch leather. It feels luxe (and admittedly, the price reflects this) but is also durable and can be coaxed into holding a few extra items if need be. Also worth calling out is the cheerful pink palate (currently marked down from $325) as well as sweet personalization options such as hand-painted monogramming.

Coach Wyn Small Wallet

Coach Wyn Small Wallet

Wyn Small Wallet (small)

Pros: Scratch-resistant leather, convenient single-card slot under the envelope snap

Cons: None to speak of

Iconic leather goods brand Coach makes this list with its small envelope-style wallet. The leather is not quite as buttery to the touch as other brands, instead, it’s made of cross grain leather that’s a bit stiffer but also scratch-resistant — good news for when your wallet and keys are jingling around in the same handbag. The interior pocket space fits a bunch of essentials: six credit cards and eight bills, with quite a bit of space to comfortably add more of each. There’s an exterior coin pouch, as well as a single card slot right under the envelope flap. Consider this the perfect place for storing your go-to credit card or ID card that you can conveniently grab in a rush without rummaging through the rest of your things.

Maison de Sabré The Slim Bifold

Maison De Sabré The Slim Bifold

The Slim Bifold (small)

Pros: A slim design that has an inconspicuous, NFC-compatible card slot on the back

Cons: No coin pouch and the folded shape may not be the right fit for those who prefer a snap or zipper to keep the wallet closed

If you’re into a folded design that doesn’t have a closure, Maison de Sabré’s bifold is an excellent choice that’s compact enough to fit into the vast majority of  handbags, as well as some evening clutches. There’s no compartment for coins, but the interior comfortably fits six cards and seemingly quite a lot of bills. The style also houses one very inconspicuous, NFC-compatible card slot on the back that makes the wallet especially convenient for any on-the-go purchases.

Maison de Sabré’s design also comes in a soft, pebbled leather that will wear well over time. For a personalized touch, add a message or initials in silver or gold detailing.

Leatherology Windsor Flat Zip Wallet

Leatherology Windsor Flat Zip Wallet

Windsor Flat Zip Wallet (small)

Pros: Ample storage space for cards, bills, and more. It has soft leather and can be converted into a wristlet bag

Cons: No coin pouch

Leatherology is a Dallas-based, vertically integrated brand that creates highly impressive leather goods, especially given its affordable price points. The wallet — tested in a truly optimistic shade of turmeric — has a super supple leather exterior and ample amount of organization for anyone who finds their wallet to be consistently packed. The inside holds six credit cards, two bill slots, and two other open pockets to fill as you see fit. There isn’t a designated coin purse, which could be a deterrent for some.

The zip-around wallet also might be too large for those who wear a smaller everyday bag. However, since it can carry quite a decent amount — it zipped right up with passport, keys, or phone — Leatherology sells wristlet straps if you prefer to use this piece as a bag itself.

Lo & Sons The Leather Wallet

Lo & Sons The Leather Wallet

The Leather Wallet (small)

Pros: Tons of storage space, including a spacious interior coin pouch. There are both horizontal and vertical credit card slots

Cons: The wallet may be too large for some smaller everyday handbags

There are pockets galore inside this wallet by direct-to-consumer line Lo & Sons, yet its exterior does nothing to suggest there’s a world of organizational possibilities within. An especially nice touch is the inclusion of horizontal and vertical card pockets — something no other wallet tested included — which made for easier insertion and removal. 

The style we tested was a stiffer Saffiano leather, although Nappa is also available. With the Saffiano, the leather has been treated to resist scratches and water damage. The options also include a range of leather-and-metal-zipper combinations. Overall, this is a larger wallet well suited for those who prefer a maximalist approach to packing a bag. It’s sturdy, practical, and luxe-looking sans any major branding details.

Royce New York Continental RFID Leather Zip Wallet

Royce New York Continental RFID Leather Zip Wallet

Continental RFID Leather Zip Wallet (small)

Pros: RFID-blocking fabric, 12 credit card slots, and an extra exterior pocket on the outside of the wallet

Cons: The wallet may be too large for some smaller everyday handbags

Made by long-standing family business Royce New York, this zip-around wallet is one we haven’t tried in person yet. This wallet, however, is known for its high-quality leather and RFID-blocking finish that is great for everyday protection. It also comes with 12 credit card pockets and two bill slots. In spite of its brag-worthy storage, it has a minimalist look. Complimentary monogramming is available too.

Cuyana Classic Zip Around Wallet

Cuyana Classic Zip Around Wallet

Classic Zip Around Wallet (small)

Pros: Ample storage space. The leather has been audited by Leather Working Group, an organization that works with brands, tanneries, suppliers, and more to create a responsible global supply chain

Cons: The wallet may be too large for some smaller everyday handbags

Cuyana is a direct-to-consumer brand committed to ethically produced products. Quality over quantity is a priority of the company, suggesting this practical, clean-lined wallet will serve the buyer well for years. The company, including the community of makers it supports and the quality of materials it uses, is on track to be 100% sustainable by 2022. While we weren’t able to test the wallet, the style is an instant classic piece with a rich, textured leather finish, simplistic gold hardware, and ample interior space.

Kate Spade Spencer Passport Wallet

Kate Spade Spencer Passport Wallet

Spencer Passport Wallet (small)

Pros: Has vertical credit card holder slots which are a bit easier to insert and remove cards from than horizontal ones. Can quickly and easily remove passport from the convenient flap

Cons: Fastens with a very small snap that could be challenging to keep closed if you fill the wallet to the brim

This black-and-pink wallet, classic Kate Spade, is pretty, timeless, and able to carry all the essentials for travel. The exterior has a subtle glossy finish and a stiff leather texture. The interior storage features about the same capacity as a zipper wallet — including five credit card spaces arranged in vertical slots, easier than horizontal slots for card retrieval — in addition to a leather flap, ideal for tucking a passport. 

Should you need additional space, there’s a coin pouch — just look for the inconspicuous zipper along the top of the wallet.  That said, we caution against over-stuffing this piece out of concern over securing the petite snap closure.

Bellroy Travel Folio

Bellroy Travel Portfolio

Travel Portfolio (small)

Pros: Can fit multiple passports, has hidden pockets for secure storage, features RFID-blocking technology, and comes with a mini travel pen

Cons: Has three credit card slots, which is fewer than other styles. Also, it doesn’t have a zippered coin pouch

The exterior of Bellroy’s Travel Folio is smooth and sleek, with a zip-around closure, and RFID-blocking technology. Meanwhile, the inside houses a ton, including at least two passports. The design only includes a couple of card slots and doesn’t have a coin purse, but it makes up for these potential inadequacies with its many organization pockets. Some of these slots are even hidden, making them great for safety and ensuring your belongings never spill out in your carry-on bag. Plus, a super slim pen is included in the center crease, ensuring you always have one on hand to fill out a customs form. Combined, these considerate touches will speak right to the heart of the most organized travelers you know.

Dagne Dover Accordion Travel Wallet

Dagne Dover Accordion Travel Wallet Lead Image

Accordion Card Case (small)

Pros: This is a slimmer design that holds bills, cards, and a passport and can still comfortably fit in almost any everyday handbag

Cons: It doesn’t have a coin pouch

This Dagne Dover design lies somewhere between a passport holder and wallet, offering just a small bit of additional storage for frequent flyers. The direct-to-consumer, waste-conscious line is no stranger to organization and pieces for on-the-go, but the wallet stands out for its looks and function. While it’s a much slimmer travel wallet than the others we tested, it still includes six slots for credit cards and one for bills. The magnet closure is also a thoughtful choice as it eliminates fumbling often caused by zippers. 

Unlike bulkier travel designs, this wallet is also a good size for slipping into everyday handbags, not just larger travel carryalls. Plus, the leather is soft and comes in lovely shades of cream, gray, and blue.
