The Buffalo Plaid Flannel Shirt

The Buffalo Plaid Flannel Shirt

September 30, 2019

Was it Paul Bunyan? The lumberjacks of Maine? Where exactly did the phenomenon come from? When it comes to the classic red and black buffalo plaid, it seems this pattern has endured for a very long time.

Buffalo plaid may have originated from the N.E. Mills but probably pre dates this with its roots in bonnie old Scotland. What we do know is that the pattern has been a staple for well over 150 years and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

This style of shirt has been a hit with workers, lumberjacks, outdoorsmen and west coast rockers for living memory and beyond. Legend has it that one of the early designers of the distinctive style owned a herd of buffalo and that’s how it got its name.

Stormy Kromer have been making outdoor wear since 1903 and know a thing or two about quality gear, which is why we  have partnered with them and why one of the first items we have taken in to our collection is the Buffalo Plaid Flannel Shirt. This is an exceptional shirt as good as (if not better) than other popular American workwear/outdoors wear brands and now available to you. You can check it out here:

We're absolutely delighted to add another American classic to our line up. In 1903 George “Stormy” Kromer started a company that would make a hat that worked as hard as he did. We now have the Western Vest, Button Vest and The Waxed Cotton Vest (or waistcoats this side of the pond) in stock, along with very good flannel shirt.
