The temperatures are falling, department stores have made it very clear that Halloween is a month away, and the pumpkin spice epidemic has its grip on all of humanity yet again. All are clear signs that summer is officially over, and autumn is in the air. Tomorrow marks the first day of fall and it’s time to start dressing the part. Put away your summery Hawaiian prints and say “Aloha” to the best flannel shirts because fall, after all, is definitely flannel season.
A flannel shirt is a staple in every man’s wardrobe during this time of the year. Plaids or solids, pockets or no pockets – there’s no dress code when it comes to these button-downs. Wearing a flannel shirt is like wearing a blanket. The best flannel shirts are comfortable, casual, and match perfectly with your favorite pair of Levi’s and rugged boots for that classic, head-to-toe fall look. It’s easy to imagine yourself in that ensemble sitting by the fire on a cool, autumn night while sipping your Jack Daniels poured neat. No wonder fall is everyone’s favorite season.
