I agree, it is always in but seems like maybe a little more lately than usual. I'm glad, I've always liked it. I see a lot of cute ladies shirts in flannel this year, more than often. More fitted with a variety of patterns.

Just my opinion, but flannel up until about 20 years ago, was a common staple in rural and suburban environments. It wasn't until "Hipsters" moved to NYC and continued wearing the same Buffalo, Gingham and Tartan plaid flannel shirts they wore in the Midwest, Pacific Northwest, or their small New England town, and made it "trendy" for urban environments.

I agree with OP, I have seen more Flannel now especially with the traditional pattern. It is one of those winter staple but it was semi phased out last decade but now that 90s back, so is denim & flannel

I’ve seen a lot of flannel in catalogs this year. When retailers use flannel in stylish ways, instead of just in work shirts, you know it on trend. I have no idea why it is this year, but it seems to be on trend.

Most of the plaids I have seen are ugly to my eyes, though.

Yeah, well, my 17 year old son and his girlfriend are OBSESSED with it to the degree I think it's got to be a trend.

Last year it was all, "hoodies, hoodies, hoodies" and now it's "flannel, flannel, flannel."

Oh, and I was also asked at one point if I'd ever heard of a band called "Nirvana." I am not joking. For the record, I'm a youngish Gen X'er, so I was THERE for the grunge explosion of the 90's...and my child asked me this. It's not just flannel making a big comeback, folks. It's flannel and grunge and so on. At least for the kids.
