Traditionally, flannel shirts were made by weaving together a combination of worsted yarn and carded wool, but today they are woven either from synthetic fiber and wool or cotton and wool. These shirts mostly feature a plaid or checked pattern, though they might also be available in solid colors and patterns such as floral and Navajo prints. These shirts became quite popular during the late 1980s when grunge music was at its height. The shirts started representing the signature style of popular bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana.
Primarily a casual garment, the shirts can also be dressed up and dressed down depending on its style and the accessories and garments worn with it. Although, they are available in different colors, most people prefer white flannel shirt because the color white goes with almost everything and it helps one to look sophisticated, formal and yet very sober. If you own one of these in your wardrobe, you will never have to be too stressed when dressing up for a corporate meeting or heading out to attend a party.
