Hey bros, I thought it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to flannel shirts. Personally I love vintage ones and find nothing compares to that old age charm. What brands/ patterns/ designs do ya'll like?

How anyone handles a wool flannel is beyond me? So damn itchy! I look forward to seeing some flannel goodness.

Haha yeah I thought the same too. Although I recently purchased a '50s woolrich buffalo plaid flannel shirt and if was both surprisingly comfy and non itchy!

Although on the whole I do prefer cotton flannel shirts. Need to work out how to upload pics from an iPad/ iPhone on here.

As far as weaves it is really tough to beat The Flat Head.  But in terms of fit, functionality, and comfort in my opinion nothing beats Iron Heart.  Their ultra heavy flannels are incredibly warm and unbelievably soft.

If we're talking affordability, it's really hard to beat this one from Barnstormers.

Visvim also makes a few flannels you can get on the cheap.*

From what I gather Yuketen is another word for cost performance in Japanese. That guy practically gives his shoes and boots away!

how is the fit of tfh vs iron hearts? i like how the iron hearts fit, but i don't mind sacrificing some thickness for  more interesting fabric

The Flat Head is tough.  The western cuts cater very much to a more T bodied physique and you should definitely size up one (maybe two).  The work shirts are also somewhat geared toward the T body but much less so than the westerns.  With IH you get a slight widening at the hem.  With the Flat Head you get a straight down or even narrowing from pit to hem.  TFH also are a bit shorter.  If you want to you could potentially tuck an IH whereas a TFH flannel hem typically hits just below the belt.  Their cuts, in my opinion, seriously set them back from being much more popular than they already are.  In general they are just less forgiving than an IH or the like.

TFH are definitely not UHF 12 oz. weight but at the same time they still have a solid weight/thickness to them.  I would guess TFH typically hover in the 7-8 oz. range (similar to what IH's "spring weight" flannels run).  Hope that helps.
