There are precisely 1202 great things about flannel. Here's one: it seems to mean business. Now, that business could be graphic design or gardening, but by default flannel suggests a certain gumption and grit. Here's one more cool thing: it looks fantastic as a stand-alone layer, fully exposed in all its criss-crossed glory, but also as a colorful accent peeking out from beneath a Woolover or Button Vest.

GREAT PRODUCTS MADE IN MICHIGAN..I OWN THREE FLANNEL SHIRTS AND TWO WARM HATS.JIM SMITH
Flannel shirt....just received my first Stormy Kromer shirt. Fits great, looks great and I am sure will last. THANKS...will be buying my son one too.
Best shirt I have bought. Very comfortable and durable. Will be buying another one. Two pockets would be a great improvement. ~~ We will pass this suggestion on to our design team. SK ~~
Very well made - tailoring was fine with no issues. Fit is generous (ordered Medium - 6' & 175 lbs. and shirt fit like it should; ample but not overly large). Fabric is about average for a flannel - not too heavy or too thin. Like the style - very distinctive with the V stitching up the front and company name on the back collar area. Of course it is a little pricey, but you are supporting American's workers. I would purchase again.
Quality has simply decreased. If you can't make a quality COTTON flannel shirt ( as you previously did) for 100 bucks, you're not doing something right. ~~Thank you for your feedback - please give us a call and let us know your concerns with the shirt. 888-455-2253
I have noticed a slight decline in quality but continue to support your American made products. Please bring back the quality even if you have to charge us a little more. Maybe have an upper level line. We will pay for quality.
I bought a factory seconds flannel shirt in Chestnut for my father in their outlet store. The tag said there was a "rough cuff". The flaw was so inconspicuous and difficult to identify that I am surprised it was even considered a factory seconds shirt. Upon returning home, I washed the shirt and re-inspected the cuff. There was no change in the material. From reading some of these other reviews of this shirt, I had expected it might unravel or fray with washing, but that was not the case at all. My father was thrilled to have an American made shirt and was impressed with the quality! Some of these other reviews are concerned with a few loose threads? Get over yourselves! When have you ever purchase any piece of clothing, either American made or imported, and didn't need to cut off a couple odd threads? If I have to cut a couple threads to support American jobs, then I will always choose American manufacturing!
I was the number one fan of Stormy Kromer flannel shirts. I owned two of them before buying my most recent shirt. I thought they were, hands down, the finest flannel shirts on the market. When I purchased Isle Royal Shirt recently, paying almost double I had paid for the previous two shirts, (shirts I paid full price for), I waited with great expectation. I was sorely disappointed! What happened to the two pockets, each with a flap and each having two buttons? Now just one pocket with a single button? What happened to the elbow pads? What happened to the second buttons on the cuffs? Yes, it still fits great and the material is just as good and the colors are great, and it comes with a spare button that the previous shirts did not, but it really hurts to pay $100 for a shirt that just isn't as good as it used to be when we didn't pay as much for them. ~~ We loved our previous style flannel shirts as well...but we discontinued them because the cost to make them in the USA was getting very high. We brought them back, with less detail so we could keep the price competitive with other brand flannel shirts of the same quality. SK ~~
The fabric and design is great (Chestnut is stunning), but as another reviewer mentioned, the buttonholes were unfinished and had loose threads throughout. I don't know much about sewing so I assumed they were just some stray uncut thread, but it seems like a thread was stitched in two spots in each button hole without actually finishing the buttonhole. I would have overlooked this but for the fact that the buttonholes did not actually hold the buttons and allowed the buttons to slip out. This was happening without putting any pressure on the shirt, the buttons simply would slide out as the unfinished holes seemed to flex too easily. The rest of the stitching and seams looked OK to me. I gave it to my mother, a retired seamstress from Michigan, to fix the buttonholes and she informed me that the shirt , in her opinion, was poorly constructed and would never have passed inspection in her shop. I think that was a bit harsh because the shirt was great and I got a lot of compliments. Still, I had an uneasy feeling for a shirt that wasn't cheap from a company that prides itself on American craftsmanship. I know that shirts are not the core business, so I will probably watch the reviews and stick to the hats for now, which are extremely well made and of course, the most stylish and awesome thing you could put on your head to keep it warm. ~~~ Sorry to hear about the button issue with your Flannel Shirt.

I received my flannel shirt yesterday and was immediately taken by it. Material was nice, fit was excellent and construction, with exception of several loose threads and some concern for the button holes seemed more than adequate. I thought to order another shirt in Gray/Black but first thought I should give it a wash and check on shrinkage. I threw it in the wash by itself on delicate cycle with cold water, then removed it and let it hang dry. Things were looking good until I noticed a two inch area of seam on a sleeve had unraveled and begun to fray. Not the end of the world but not what you expect from a shirt as costly as this. So, I recommend it you order one of these shirts to give it a thorough inspection when you receive it BEFORE you wear and wash it. Hopefully if thereâ€™s a problem youâ€™ll discover it in time to return it. I just may order another but only because I have a good seamstress in the house that can make it right should it be necessary. On a brighter note, the Flat Top Wool hat I received at the same time is awesome.... thanks! ~~~ Sorry you had an issue with your Flannel Shirt.
