There are tons of flannels on the market, but none quite as unique as the new J. Crew sun-washed models. This twist on the classic cold weather shirt is something I have yet to see from any other brand and they look fantastic in person (I can also vouch for fit). Still defined by their thick fabric, but lightened just enough to set them apart from the playing field these are the coolest flannels I have seen this season. Unlike your typical flannel, the inherent utility of these shirts (it's ability to warm) forms an intriguing combination with the washed-out (shout out to Paul) warmness of the colors. Instead of dropping 2 bills on something from Woolrich Woolen Mills, I'd much rather get three of these. Snag 'em here for $69.50.
