Made Famous by Big Yank in the 1930s and 1940s, the flannel work shirt with asymmetrical pockets is a sought-after style amongst vintage collectors and designers. But seeing as originals are, well, “tough” to come by (to say the least), that doesn’t leave much room for the fair-weather fans just looking for a way to stick out from the crowd while staying warm. Well, that was until purveyors like Brooklyn Clothing started stocking a wide range Flannel Shirts by The Strike Gold.
Coming in a variety of brushed flannel check fabrics, these shirts are perfect for the holiday season and offer a subtle departure from the classic style in both color and design. Although featuring the aforementioned mismatched pockets, colors, check style, and collars, the overall look is much more in line with the 50s-70s flannels which makes for a great mix ‘n’ match! Featuring double-needle construction, chainstitch run-off, and a modern fit that can be worn un-tucked, this Made in Japan work shirt harkens back to when Made in the USA work shirts were at their peak, whilst dusting a bit of modern know-how for good measure.
Available from $289 from Brooklyn Clothing.
