There are typically two school of thought when it comes to summer dressing: 1. Wear as little clothing as possible, or 2. Live a life perpetually marinating in your own juices in the effort of getting a fit off. Let’s focus on the latter. Flannels are the opposite of summer-ready gear, but, again, we’re over that because, well, layers. Period. End of discussion. Also, it’s August, which means it’s almost September, which means it’s almost October, which means it’s almost fall. And that right there is certified flannel weather. Sorry, it must seem like we’re trying really fucking hard to justify copping flannels right now, but thems the breaks. So load up now for now or load up now for later. Doesn’t matter.
