Flannel shirts are a fall staple and Western Rise’s Elkton Stretch ($110) is one of the best. Why? Because it takes everything we love about a flannel—thick fabric, a soft hand feel, and naturally rugged style—and adds some performance features that appeal to those who actually get out and do stuff, rather than just walk down Main Street of their favorite mountain town.
Don’t get me wrong—the Elkton Stretch looks damn good walking into The Butcher and the Baker. But it’s built from a thick, stretchy synthetic fabric that uses CoolMax and wool fibers to wick sweat, making it perfect for fall mountain biking, early-morning uphill ski laps, or even just a day at the office.
