I have tried these LLBean wicked good flannels before, in small (the smallest size offered) and they were way too large in the shoulders. It sucks because if they were big elsewhere, I would have paid for them to be tailored. I love the colors and they are really soft and comfortable.

I'm looking for similar flannels, in the same pattern and subdued/dark colors... neither pattern nor colors are too bold, which I like. But just want some more appropriate sizing... I want a small that actually fits like a small!

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

lands end had some good ones this year. really soft. looks like there's no more online but if you have a sears store near you they might still have some at 60% off. just like LLBean their small is larger than most other mediums, but mine kept shrinking after the fifth or sixth wash and is now so small in the shoulders i can't wear it! the nice thing is you can still return lands end stuff even after washing/wearing.

these might work but in my experience the lands end canvas stuff is slightly lower quality than the mainline stuff (sizing tends to be really wonky too)

looks like llbean has the same generous return policy. if i were you i'd wash/dry that flannel a few more times and if it doesn't drink down enough just return it.
