National Flannel Day

The words “flannel” and “plaid” are often used interchangeably, but they are referring to two different things. Flannel is a material or fabric (wool or cotton and slightly milled and raised) and not a pattern. In contrast, plaid is a pattern. You usually see plaid on flannel shirts.

Check this image, I used a photo of me wearing my red flannel shirt and Photo Lab app that lets you put them on various backgrounds.

Usually, you think of flannel with outdoor wear. But they can be used for common causal wear too. I have a red/black plaid, black/gray plaid and green/black plaid that I like wearing. Flannel is usually warm clothes, great to wear in cool weather.
