This shirt is not at all a flannel, but a cotton button up. Very disappointed with customer service as well, as I will be paying shipping to return this shirt.
As some other reviewers mentioned this isn't actually "Flannel" but it's enough to keep the wind and rain off your arms. This shirt is well made and the document pockets mesh and extra stitching actually keeps your chest warmer than a normal single pocketed shirt would. The mesh at the neck does the same right where the extra thickness is needed. I'd bought flannels in the past and yes they're thick and warm and work well as an outer layer but this works great under a coat or on a cool day when you don't really need something bulky/weighty. The only thing that'd make this better is interior elbow mesh for added durability and a little more room in the shoulders.
I've got a few of these which I wear to work and casual. I like the fit and function although they seem to have a fit trim which may be small for heavy set people, or those with large muscles. I'm a medium and it fits perfect with no extra room for pies and cakes.
Ok, sure... One reviewer mentioned that the shirt isn't quite as thick as he was expecting. I personally favor the thicker fabric flannels myself. But that is literally the one thing I would like to see changed about this shirt.
It's incredible. Not sure I'd pay the $70 bucks it runs when not on sale--even if it was thicker but any time you can get you one or more of these on sale they are most certainly worth every penny.
Awesome shirt. Fits great. Great for everyday use. Long tail doesn't come untucked. Comfortable to wear and doesn't bind up.
When I read "flannel" I thought I was buying a thick shirt to wear on cool fall and spring days. What I received however was a thick dress shirt that was much thinner than I expected. Once you get over that, these are nice shirts.
The size is true to fit and will allow for an undershirt of some type. The sleeves unbutton to mid forearm so you can roll them above the elbow. There is a hidden pocket beneath each breast pocket. The waist is cut straight so you can have room when carrying IWB or OWB.
In all, I like these shirts. Wished they were a bit heavier weight material, but that said I would buy them again.
I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect as far as quality with this shirt considering the great price, but as soon as I opened the package I could tell this was a well crafted shirt, It is everything I thought it would be and then some, the "hidden document pockets" work amazingly well, very roomy and are not noticeable at all. the Buttons have a white marble look and have a distinct and secure snap, the inner webbing type material around the collar makes this shirt comfortable and not to mention the thing just looks flat out good.
