I checked out the new extra slim flannels in the nearest BB stores and they are excellent. Great slim fit and perfect sleeve length. Made in China though ... Thought I'll share with SF.

I'm a little spoiled because my current flannels are IH super heavy winter flannels, but how thick are they? I prefer a bit of heft to my flannels, as (I assume) most others do as well.

What is the thickness? If they're decently heavy it could be of use to me, it gets fucking cold in Canada and you can't wear baller shit you just wear whatever keeps you warmest lol

I have a flannel I got from Brooks Brothers a few years ago and while the quality and construction is fine, they are definitely not heavy at all. If I'm getting flannel from BB, I'll stick to pants.

Probably going to skip anything MIC from them from now on (ie, labelled "imported" on the website instead of "made in scotland").

I like the cotton/wool blend they sometimes use in their flannels.

We don't have a summer-weight flannel thread yet. Maybe one of the J.Crew fanboys can cook one up for us. On topic, interesting no mention was given regarding the fabric itself. Think I'll stick to Uniqlo at that price.

The fabric is quite nice. Made in China does not usually impress me, but BB ESF flannels are very soft, I would say they have a medium thickness. They are a bit long in the torso, IMO, but I usually tuck in my flannels anyway.

Just saying-- if I had a choice between BB flannel and other flannels from similarly-priced stores, I would go with BB. It's not simply the fabric quality but the designs, as well. For instance, I think J.Crew designed their flannels by hooking up a goat's brain to an algorithm on a computer and sketching down whatever popped up.
