Kurt Cobain #1 He might have been the quintessential flannel shirt wearer of all times. It is just natural to picture him with a guitar rocking a flannel shirt. Not the classiest of flannels either.  Kind of the thrift store, slightly 70s  plaid.

Eddie Vedder #2 Another Grunge figurehead and singer.  He often performed in concert with a traditional flannel.  What is it about Grunge and Flannel? The cold of Seattle?   Maybe its ability to be both a shirt and a jacket?  Or, its capacity for hiding a beer stain?

Jeff Spicoli #3 Another person that liked flannels ability to keep one warm, and thác bản giốc yet be overwhelmingly comfortable at the same time. Another bonus is that the soft, brushed cotton helps you relive the glory later of some of your cool buds if thats your thing.

Marilyn Monroe #4 Hard to imagine this bombshell blonde wearing a flannel shirt, or definitely not her trademark look. But this was not the platinum blonde in Some Like it Hot This was an earlier Norma Jean look from around 1947. We would love to show the image but it is trademarked still. Please see:


Leonardo Dicaprio #5 This star is not afraid to go out in public with a slightly undercover flannel, cap, and shades. He has been seen shopping in Beverly Hills for jewelry in Flannel.

Ben Affleck #6 Another example of how stylish and all-around useful flannel can be to wear.  In a few different ways he is seen with a solid color t-shirt with a half buttoned flannel shirt. This is a great look, and adds a lot to its flexibility. You can button it up more or less as the weather changes. Or even, god forbid, remove the flannel completely.

Lindsay Lohan #7 Sometimes she goes way too casual but a simple look with just some jean shorts a tank top works for her. Add a loose flannel that is easily adjustable for neckline. She has been photographed in flannel on multiple occasions.

Robert Pattinson #8 Sure he is an actor that plays a 105 year old vampire in Twilight but that does not mean he cant be comfortable. This London born actor has been seen outside in between filming, wearing a flannel shirt.

Olsen Twins #9 The Olsen twins often wear flannel shirts. On a recent day one was out with a Fendi bag and flannel. Both of the twins like flannel, maybe they swap the shirts.

Monty Python Lumberjack #10 This skit featured a song sung by Michael Palin and Eric Idle at different times. In the skit the main character complains of his boring job such as a pet shop owner or Barber. Then he says he wanted to be a Lumber Jack and rips off his boring overcoat to reveal a manlier red Checker Flannel Shirt. The song progresses and he admits he is interested in wearing womens undergarments. His best girl screams disappointedly thinking he was so rugged. So apparently plaid is not as masculine as once thought.
