Style Pick of the Week: Mizzen+Main Durham Flannel Shirt

An upgraded denim shirt made with versatile fabric — just the right way to go for a business casual ensemble.

You’ve not yet worn a shirt like the Mizzen+Main Durham Flannel — I can nearly guarantee that. While it’s likely you’ve certainly got a classic flannel shirt in your closet, the Durham Flannel is another beast entirely, and in a good way when it comes to business casual winter style. It’s a recent, new offering from Mizzen+Main that features wrinkle-resistant performance fabric, a touch that puts it head and shoulders above other flannel shirts you might be considering this winter. The Durham Flannel packs in a bevy of standout features, from much-needed moisture-wicking technology to four-way stretch more commonly found in your athletic gear. What does that mean for you, casual flannel shirt wearer? It means you can layer the Durham Flannel easily under sweaters and coats without risk of overheating, and it means you can wear it comfortably on its own in your office or at home — sleeves rolled up or worn down with a tan herringbone blazer. It’s also machine-washable — mark up another “W” for this fine flannel shirt, no dry cleaning needed. The brand has focused on dialing in the fit here, resulting in a flannel shirt that’s neither too boxy nor too tight — it provides you with range of motion and layering potential, all the better for getting through the grueling winter months.

Wear this one casually with a sharp leather watch for simply stellar seasonal style.

It’s that kind of easy wearability and stylish versatility that gives the Durham Flannel an edge when it comes to looks, too. The Black Watch Plaid pattern found on the Mizzen+Main Durham Flannel is rich, winter-friendly and able to pair up seamlessly with everything from crisp blue dark denim and a grey crewneck sweater to a tan wool blazer and navy corduroys. Wear the Durham Flannel untucked with black denim and rugged brown leather Chelsea boots for casual, bar-ready style, too. And all the while, you’ll be comfortable and cool thanks to the performance fabric fonud in the Durham Flannel — in fact, it might make it even easier to layer this particular flannel over a classic henley for even more versatility. Yes indeed, the Mizzen+Main Durham Flannel might just change the way you think about flannel shirting … if not forever, then at least for this winter.
