Five Reasons You Should Wear a Flannel Shirt to Work this Friday

And​, while you're thinking of it, strongly consider one as an option for other days of the week, too.


First it was Casual Fridays. Then it was tech moguls dressed in t-shirts and hoodies. And now Marmot is ushering in a new era of workplace attire with technical flannel shirts that are as functional as they are stylish. For reals. Here are five reasons they’re the perfect garment to kickstart your weekend.

1. It shows you’ve got style

Marmot’s new line of Men’s flannels come in a variety of styles, from the Anderson’s bright and bold patterns to the Enfield’s laid back horizontal stripes. The Women’s flannels are feature rich and have even more options, including hooded pieces like the Reagen, classic updated paneling on the Lani, and an insulated button-up shacket – a crowd fav, from the Riley.

2. A little flair goes a long way

All you need to do to understand this bit of fashion advice is look at the stitching on someone’s jeans. Whereas overly embellished back pockets scream Jersey Shore, a touch of brighter thread looks smart and classy. Same rules apply for shirts, and flannels like the Anderson (men) and Evelyn (women) have just the right amount of pizzazz. The contrast plaid inside the yoke, collar stand, and placket are barely noticeable at first but set them apart from an otherwise uniform sea of tartan.

3. It’s like a wearing a cloud, but with buttons and a collar

All of Marmot’s flannels are cut from a super-soft blend of cotton and Coolmax polyester fabric. But what really sets them apart are the flat seams and the double-brushed fabric. Hot tip: Put one on straight from the dryer—or your overheated tent—for a maximum cloud-like sensation.

4. You can leave it on all weekend long

For some of you (you know who you are), this is probably the biggest sell. Marmot’s flannels aren’t just soft, they are also constructed with Marmot’s Forge Flannel technical fabrics that wick moisture away nearly as well as your favorite midlayer. Which means they pair just as well with sporty pants, as they do with jeans – and are game for everything from skiing and hiking to yoga and extreme bocce. You’ll only have to change your bottoms. Think about all the free time you’ll have.

5. You can win stuff!
