Putting a thermal on beneath your flannel is a time-honoured tradition for many men but perhaps you want to combine your efforts. This fantastic High Sierra Flannel Shirt from California Cowboy ($148) takes the innovative step of sewing a thermal lining into the flannel shirt itself which results in unparalleled softness, warmth, and a time-saving option for your autumnal wardrobe.
And the good news doesn’t stop there my friend -the High Sierra also comes chock full of great features like a zippered dry pocket for your phone, a beer pocket for a can or bottle, a sunglass loop, and a glove loop.

Taylor Stitch Yosemite Flannel Shirt – $99
When a lifestyle brand like Taylor Stitch says they’re aiming to make the perfect outdoor men’s shirt, it’s safe to say you’re going to sit up and take notice. Well, they might just have done it with the devilishly dapper Taylor Stitch Yosemite Flannel Shirt ($99). Each year the brand buys up a fresh stock of the softest flannel chamois fabric they can get their hands on and transforms it into a limited run of the Yosemite shirt.

It is a heavy-duty, no-nonsense entry into the flannel race that may just be as close to perfection as it gets from a style and comfort perspective. To add to the exclusive nature of the shirt, you’ll only find this burgundy hue on the digital shelves of Huckberry. ($99)
Flint & Tinder American Made Flannel Shirt – $73
For being such an iconic and pivotal part of American fashion, it’s tough to find a flannel shirt that’s actually made in the good old US of A. Or should we say, it was tough to find an American-made flannel. Flint and Tinder has put paid to that by putting together a timeless piece of fashion in the shape of this awesome looking American Made Flannel Shirt ($73).
It elevates itself with a great attention to detail such as brushed cotton, a back pleat, and button-down collar and the fact Flint & Tinder were able to get it manufactured in Los Angeles, California, is its own triumph. Called, simply enough, the American Made Flannel, this is the perfect way to sport American goods while keeping warm and looking the part. ($73)

This classic piece of casual menswear is ideally suited for cool autumn evenings and perfect for layering on cold winter days.
