Modern Flannel: Horny Toad

modern flannel horny toad
Whether you’re heading to a saturday afternoon wine tasting, or simply heading out for an afternoon walk with your trusty four-legged friend, Fall weather calls for a little more than the typical jeans and t-shirt you got away with this summer. Let’s be honest, aside from hipsters and lumberjacks (and maybe a few too many ski town “bros”) flannel hasn’t really been a part of most of our wardrobes for a few years. That’s about to change. After relaunching their line earlier this year, Horny Toad’s new outdoor lifestyle focused shirts are the perfect foundation for wearing around town this fall.

The cornerstone of the line is the Birddog Shirt. Featuring hollow-core polyester fibers, it has excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, and more importantly wicks moisture and dries quickly, so you can wear it directly from the office to the trail. Expect this one to be a go-to piece for a few seasons to come.

Not everything has to be technical though (our gear addicts on staff might beg to differ). The all new Earle is 100% organic cotton tweed, favoring classic construction and design. The athletic fit compliments the throwback colorway and iconic pattern. Just don’t be surprised when this one gets stolen by your girlfriend.

Our last pick isn’t quite flannel, but the Dot Matrix Oxford is a classic working man’s shirt that belongs in your closet. The subtle texture and heavier blend make this the perfect layering piece for an outdoor evening or night at the bar. You may need to just get one in every color. Right now is perfect time to expand and update some of the tired shirts you’ve been slowly wearing out, and it’s time to look at flannel again. Horny Toad’s fall line proves that you don’t have to work in a logging camp or drink terrible beer ironically to look good in a classic flannel shirt.
