Find the Right Flannel Fit

Order the best size for flannel shirts and apparel

Shopping for flannel clothing can be tricky. How do you know your flannel size? Should flannel be tight or loose? Should you size up for flannel pajamas? How does a particular brand of flannel shirt fit?

At The Vermont Flannel Company, we’re dedicated to comfort and quality—and that includes the size and fit. In addition to the size chart button on each product page, we can help with flannel shirt sizing and more. 

Similar to jeans, flannels can get softer and more comfortable over time with frequent wear and washing. Read our expert advice and learn how our flannels fit. Then, confidently shop our stylish year-round and cold-weather clothing.

Men's Classic Flannel Shirt: The men’s classic flannel is our tallest (or longest) fitting shirt. This is one of our most popular styles for any gender, because it covers the most, and it's an excellent transitional layer. The fit is slightly more boxy than our unisex fitted shirt, making it a bit more forgiving. It’s a great choice if you like to tuck in your button-down shirts. We also love the two chest pockets — you'll be surprised by how handy they are!

Fitted Flannel Shirt: This gender-neutral style is listed under both our women’s and men’s categories. While offering some length, this unisex button-down, oxford style is a straighter cut than the men's or women's classic fits. It looks great worn tucked, untucked, or open with a fun graphic tee.

Women's Classic Flannel Shirt: This is a typical women's flannel shirt fit with a slight curve to enhance the waist. It is shorter than the men’s or unisex styles, hitting at the hip. Customers say it’s true to size, so if you want an oversize look or for it to feel extra roomy, go for a size up.

Adult Henley Flannel Shirt: Need flannel pj’s or an out-on-the-town top? This pullover plaid shirt can go either way! Our flannel henley — a collared, unisex shirt — is roomy and long (almost as long as the men's classic shirt) and has just three buttons. Plus, the collar pops on its own.

Warm Flannel Lounge Pants: Get cozy by the fire or (if you’re that person) while traveling on your next flight. Our soft adult flannel pants are designed with a durable elastic waistband and side pockets for superior comfort. There’s extra room in the hips and thigh with a relaxed fit made for lounging and sleeping. Make sure to reference the size chart on the product page to order the ideal length.

Soft Flannel Joggers: These buttery flannel joggers for adults are a slimmer fit than the classic lounge pant. Great for pajamas, athleisure, or travel, these flannel pants feature high-quality, ribbed cotton cuffs at the ankle for a tapered look. We also use the same built-in drawstring in this jogger as our lounge pants. So, the drawstring runs through the high-quality elastic and it never slips out. Now that’s American craftsmanship.
