Why You Should Wear Flannels in Winter

Flannel Suit Lanieri

Fall is quickly approaching and with it comes cooling temperatures. Here is the dilemma: what to wear in the mid season? Although you’ve got a closet full of clothes in autumnal, warm colors and strongly textured, flannels are something every man should own to look his best in the smart way.

What about Flannel

Originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, flannel is now often made from either wool, cotton, or cashmere blends to suit any style or occasion. Its typical woolly appearance is obtained during a particular stage of weaving, called garzatura. The brushing process uses a fine metal brush which rubs the fabric to raise fine fibres from the loosely spun yarns to form a nap. What for? This process keeps the fabric lightweight, but turns it into an extra soft natural thermal insulator. Resistant, vaguely vintage, extremely lightweight, comfortable to wear and soft to the touch: this special fabric has what it takes to become the most beloved one.

It’s time to put lightweight, khakis and linen clothes away and get stylishly seasonal this ending Fall. Here are our three flannel looks every man can customise with his own personal style. 

Versatile Elegance

The priceless thing about a flannel suit is its versatility. Try wearing it in a more casual setting with a plain wool sweater and a pair of low top trainers, mixing formal and casual wear together. The smart way to be casual when it’s cold. On the other hand, if you want a more formal look you can mix your flannel suit with a classic white or light blue dress shirt and a pair of formal shoes, such as a pair of loafers or monk strap.
