We’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitters to explore the world of fabrics in a series called Fabric First, diving deep into materials and textures that are season- and style-appropriate right now. 

The drop in temperature opens the door for a much more exciting world of material, texture, and color. And in the run-up to spring, we're taking a deep dive into some of our favorite fabrics. Catch up on corduroy or keep scrolling for an ode to flannel.

Flannel came into its own in the sphere of shirting thanks to its durability and medium weight which makes it perfect for layering. The flannel shirt is a staple of the modern wardrobe because of its versatility. It’s ideal for fall because it can be worn over a T-shirt or even a crewneck jumper without being too bulky to fit under a coat or jacket. Popularized — like most pieces of fashion worth wearing — by manual workers, the flannel shirt is the epitome of a no-fuss garment and its timeless appeal has pushed us to round up some of the best flannels that Urban Outfitters has to offer.

Browse the best flannel shirts for fall below.

Plaid can reach almost hypnotic levels sometimes, and this is one of those times. A subtle light pink color is woven into the intricate plaid to give this piece a faded, beaten aesthetic that we think all flannels should have.
