Let me know. There are some really cool flannels and different types of gingham's coming out for spring 11 and Fall 11.
The market is saying the are checking but I am on the fence.
what are your thoughts??

I wanted to make some BD and AD shirts in both to match my collection for fall. Which will be heavy in herringbone , tweed, and heavier winter pima cottons from Kurabo ( more formal fabric not denim, very cool stuff).

Maybe someone would be kind enough to make a poll for me.


Best,
mauro

Since you're asking...good quality flannels in classic tartans are never "out" -- they wax and wane in popularity -- but next year I think brighter colored and "exploded" plaids won't be as popular.

Ginghams have some life left in 'em, I think. I plan on buying one or two this spring.

I never really got into the flannel/gingham, but I do plan on getting a couple of flannels in subdued colors (but thats just my personal taste).

I never liked gingham much.

No, they broke my heart and I just haven't bounced back yet. Seersucker asked me on a date, but it's just too soon. Maybe this spring/summer...

I don't know how to make a poll.

Not- I feel you.

I currently am still interested in flannels. I do not buy many of them and they really have to catch my eye, but I do like them. Gingham tends to not interest me.

Gingham and flannel are pretty much all I want to wear.

I've loved flannels in the past but they're getting a bit too commonplace among the douches of the world.

Gingham is *almost* always classy.

love a good gingham in classic colors, always relevant.

plaid flannels I like if it's a good plaid, but so many are just boring.

Both are classics to some extent that will never go completely out. I keep a couple examples of each in my wardrobe even though I'm more of a solid color shirt guy myself.

I find myself buying far too many flannel shirts. It's getting a bit old to me, especially when they've become the standard for all teenage emo/skater types.

That said, I still like them, and I think I wear them differently, so I keep buying them.

gingham yes, flannel no

i like ginghams because you can easily throw a hoodie over just as easy as you can slap a tie and blazer on
