    The website says "Made from soft woven cotton, with a handsome plaid print, snazzy chest pocket, adjustable buttoned cuffs, and shirttail hem." is that the same as flannel?
    real flannel is wool. today, many flannel shirts are made of a cotton blend technically called flannelettes. I do not think that shirt is either, but its pattern is common for flannelette shirts stereotypically worn by lumberjacks and Nirvana fans. I like that shirt, BTW

    I don't like Nirvana their music doesn't have any sweet melody and the lyrics I cannot distinguish from the guitar.

    I will see this shirt when I arrive. Would you wear this button to the top for a more formal look?

    I meant less a Nirvana look. The Beach Boys when they were young men didn't look so messy.

    ahh, I see what you mean. I still would not button it up to the top, but that's a matter of personal taste, I suppose.

    Get yourself a navy pea coat with gold buttons-----a la Brian on the cover of Pet Sounds. Brian was also a fan of the plain white t-shirt, available anywhere plain white t-shirts are sold.

    Good idea maybe this is a white shirt is the secret to this classic style..I like that coat too. I can imagine in the winter walking on the beach with that with khaki pants but I don't know what shoes.

    This photo is not the Beach Boys..where is Brian and Dennis?? So I don't think this has anything to doing with the real style.

    They are not the **real** Beach Boys. Dennis died in a horrible accident and the genius Brian isn't going with them so this is not the Beach Boys I know. If Ringo and George came there would you call them the Beatles??
