Maybe its just where i live but a bunch of people are wearing these aweful flannel shirts, and the odd thing is that seems to be the style not because they are into grunge music or whatever. Its just funny seeing a bunch of people with wearing the same flanel shirts (same colour) in the same room.

Is there a color that's in style now or something? I've always liked certain flannels, if well-cut, but have kept only one or two flannels due to their 'lumberjack/country' connotations.

I am so ready for a grunge/lumberjack aesthetic to enter the mainstream.

I wouldn't exactly associate flannel with grunge, but I suppose that's because West Virginia is decades behind everybody else. It's pretty much solely workwear here.

I was at a music festival last week, and I'd guess 40% of the males were wearing converse/ denim / flannel or western shirt. I was glad I didn't bring any, I'd have felt embarrassed looking like I was in uniform.
It was in the UK and not a country music thing..

according to the other thread about not liking something after mainstream picks it up, we will now have to start wearing something else.

tie-dye shirts anyone?
