Warm, light and ultra-soft, flannel shirts are perfect for the mid-season period between summer and autumn. Flannel, which was originally made only with combed wool, is now made with a blend of different fibres, including cotton and cashmere, while maintaining all of its exceptional qualities as natural heat insulation. The flannel shirt, especially in checked patterns, is the ideal item for casual style, but thanks to sartorial details and a tailored fit, it has a more elegant, formal style that fits in perfectly with a casual business look.
The best casual business looks with a flannel shirt.
Next autumn’s proposal includes classic flannel shirts with gingham check, a pattern that has become a genuine preppy style icon. Gingham checks are well known for their excellent versatility that also depends on the size of the checks themselves: larger checks are for more casual wear, while closer checks have a similar effect to solid colours and can be worn easily under a more formal suit.
For example a casual business look is easily created with this gingham check shirt in different tones of blue, which pairs smoothly with a deep blue suit or a blue blazer and pale grey trousers. But if a more formal look is what we are looking for, we can pair the flannel shirt with a micro houndstooth check in deep blue, under a cool wool suit in dark blue, then add a regimental striped tie and a matching pale pocket handkerchief for an impeccable look that’s ready for meetings with clients.
A more casual look with an Ivy League feel can be created with this shirt with cutaway collar in a soft flannel in browns and blues, paired with khaki pants, a dark blue unstructured blazer and a pair of penny loafers. But if what you’re looking for is a more relaxed look for the weekend, then you can choose a red checked shirt, a pair of dark jeans, a blue velvet bomber jacket and a pair of white sneakers. Perfect urban chic for a trip to the lake.
Whatever your style, with a flannel shirt, you can create endless looks, from the most sophisticated to the more casual, all you need to do is take a look at our e-shop and choose one!
