THE HISTORY OF THE FLANNEL SHIRT
What used to be workers' clothing is now an essential part of the look on the streets and even on the catwalks. It unites generations and is worn by men and women alike. It feels at home in all kind of (sub-)cultures, lifestyle worlds and social classes. It comes across as extremely laid-back, but still serves its purpose. It has a centuries-old history and at the same time is still fashionable. Hardly any other garment is as classic and versatile as the flannel shirt.
The Fannel fabric, a roughened fabric made of cotton or wool with a very soft feel, originated in Wales in the 17th century. European migrants brought it to the American East Coast in the 19th century, where it was then made into uniforms for farmers and lumberjacks. That's where the term "lumberjack shirt" comes from.
In the 19th century, John Rich, a migrant from Liverpool, settled in Pennsylvania. Here he built up his own wool spinning mill and founded his brand Woolrich. In 1850, he developed the first flannel shirt. The fabric had a black and red check pattern, also known as Buffalo Plaid. That's why flannel shirts are often equated with the plaid pattern, though ultimately the material is the defining characteristic of a true flannel shirt. The advantages of the material, such as the high durability, durability, warmth and comfortable feel, made the flannel shirt particularly popular.
Aber auch kleinere Unternehmungen wie Campen im eigenen Garten, ein Ausflug im heimischen Wald, die Wanderung im Hartz, Fliegenfischen am nächst-gelegenen See und vieles mehr können sich als großes Abenteuer entpuppen. Also geh raus, genieß die Natur und das Gefühl von Freiheit. Probiere Neues aus und sauge jedes noch so kleines Erlebnis auf wie ein Schwamm.

However, it became really famous in 1954 when Marlon Brando wore a flannel shirt in his role for the film 'On the Waterfront’.
As a symbol of democratization, the flannel shirt was worn in all social classes in the 60s. It was affordable, durable and looked just as good used as new. Also in the 70s, the flannel shirt got its place in the youth subculture and was worn equally by skaters, punks, rockabillys and hippies. Then in the 90s, the flannel shirt was represented in the various music scenes. No wonder, considering that it was an integral part of the wardrobe of Kurt Cobain, Snoop Dogg and David Bowie.
And even today we can't imagine our wardrobes without this extremely comfortable, stylish and at the same time functional all-rounder. Here you can find a small collection of our all-time favorite flannel shirts.
