"My miserly husband is starting to appreciate quality clothing thanks to his Patagonia flannels"
For example, he is the kind of guy who buys store brand jeans. He goes for what's cheap, and then complains because of the fit or quality. My parents bought his first Patagonia flannel for him last Christmas, and. he loved it. He had a fit over the price, of course, as my mom often forgets to remove price tags. As he wore the shirt again and again, he was sold. He has large shoulders, and often has to size up for a shirt to fit them, but then it's too large in the body. This shirt fits him in an XL. It is soft and warm, without being bulky at all. So, I bought him another one (this one) on sale for his birthday. He's even upgraded his jeans to Levi's since then. Baby steps.
Likes his new shirt. He's a lumberjack...in the lumber yard at Lowe's, with a big beard. To say the least he loves this shirt made from organic cotton. Can't you just see a lumberjack wearing this anyways? I will say it's a good shirt for all though, not just lumberjacks.
The Patagonia Buckshot Flannel is a stylish, well-made shirt. It's a pretty true fit--maybe runs a tad large like a lot of Patagonia's stuff. If you're real skinny I could see the shirt being a bit baggy. I'm a well-proportioned 6'0" 200, and the medium really fits in the traditional sense. I guess anything with a plaid pattern is called "flannel" these days... This shirt is thin cotton, maybe marginally thicker than a dress shirt. For that reason, I'd call it a bit overpriced. With Patagonia you get a little unnecessary markup, but you also get superior products. Anyway, great-looking, top-quality shirt.
I bought this shirt for my dad as a gift. I was a little envious and tempted to keep it for myself. Not wanting to stiff my dad during the holidays, I wrapped it up. A few weeks later I got myself one. Seems a little large, but very comfortable.
Just bought the shirt. Love the name. Love the fit. Love the material. Very soft feel with relaxed movement of the shirt. Perfect for a day hike with friends to dinner with the girl. I would definitely recommend!
The fit is great, i feel like patagonia stuff runs big, but maybe thats just me. I would definitely suggest this shirt. Not too loose, not to tight and the fabric is light and soft. Good for any casual situation.
It's an ok shirt a little expensive for the thin fabric. The moosejaw web site lists this shirt as slim fit but the tag on the shirt lists it as regular fit. I'm 5'10" 160 pounds and the medium was kind of loose fitting. Hope this helps.
