The American Buffalo Flannel Shirt

There is no one garment that is as universally appreciated and valued as a symbol of the American outdoorsman as the flannel shirt. In the 1950’s the American Dream was a concept that had taken root in our culture. Men worked from the bottom up and were proud of their achievements—being a working class man was not something of which to be ashamed. The flannel was one of a few garments blue collar workers could rely on for practicality and aesthetics - it kept them warm, it was durable and the plaid hid any unseemly stains acquired during an honest days work - not to mention that it looked pretty darn good no matter your physique. We believe these attributes to still be relevant in our daily lives which is why no self respecting man should not have a great fitting, classic buffalo check plaid flannel hanging in his closet.

Why Buffalo? 


A distinctively American look (not a Scottish tartan), buffalo shirts are so named because in the 1850's, the man who created the over sized two-color checks also raised buffalo. Makes sense to us.


We wanted to combine a modern, tailored look with enough proportion to fit most body types. The mid -section has a slight contour for shape and to eliminate excess fabric in the tail. There is enough room to layer with a t-shirt underneath but consider this a fitted flannel rather than oversized so size up one size if you want more room. The length hits right at the low hip with enough of a tail to tuck but can also be worn without tucking. 


Our flannel is a 100% cotton twill weave from Japan, weighing in at a hefty 8oz before wash. Expect to gain approx another 1/4oz after the first wash.
