Pure organic cotton melange yarns add extra character to these luxuriously soft, vintage inspired flannels. These are the Retro Melange Flannels - the comfort, value and style are hard to beat.
This fabric has the perfect starting point - spot on weight and feel. The 6.5 ounce weight strikes the perfect balance between heft and wearability. The heavily brushed flannel base has real volume and a gauzy softness. Each uses pure organic cotton yarns, rare in shirting fabric. The finishing touch that adds complexity is the melange yarns. These lend a subtle heather effect to each color. A big, chunky check lends a vintage feel to this version. Crimson and dark grey are nicely contrasted to create an earthy palette.
This shirt is sewn up in our new Rugged style. It's designed to be the perfect style for our heavier, more rustic fabrics we run. It's a bit more casual, without being over the top. This style is really set off by two key design cues: a perfectly sized collar without buttons and two clean button closure, rounded chest pockets. These two elements lend the style it’s more casual look while their clean implementation keeps the shirt versatile. A simpler back yoke replaces the box pleat and locker loop of our Classic style. Small gusset tabs adorn the bottom hem and intricate stitching tacks down the collar stand. The Rugged style inherits the same core fit block from the updated Classic style. The moment we sewed up some flannels and heavy jacquards in this style we knew it was right.
