Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I truly hate flannel sheets & PJ's. Just feels like cheap, nasty cotton and I don't get how that's sooooo warm. It's creepy, like bad polyester.

I'll wear a flannel shirt with something layered under it, but maybe that's something I need to discuss in counseling since I am well aware that the 90's are over. Hrm.....

Unfortunately it appears now that they are nearly done rewarming crappy 80s fashions, young people are moving on the grunge era and starting to wear flannel again. QUICK BUY STOCK IN DOC MARTEN!!!!

Still outdated. This isn't the early 90's anymore. Kurt is dead.

But anything goes with pajamas.

If you live where it gets cold, then flannel is your friend.

Damned straight! During Chicago winters, on those freezing, windy, slushy, dark, miserable days when I just don't give any damns about my fashion or style because WINTER, the torso uniform goes: silk teddy-->flannel shirt-->cashmere sweater/cardigan-->fleece zip-up or another cashmere cardigan/zip-up-->coat. Plus more layers as necessary.

Flannel is an integral part of my staying marginally warm and alive through the soul-draining hell-horror that is winter and people's "it's so uuugh 90s, lololol" can kiss my fabulously flannel-ed fanny. Especially if they're criticizing flannel shirts on a site from which they are buying and wearing niche novelty print t-shirts.

SO THERE. I TOLD YOU. YOU GOT TOLD.





... oh gods, winter is coming... *sob*

Most Dr. Martens are now made in China since 2003 and have terrible quality issues. They were a great shoe and I wore none other for the better part of 12 years but I would never wear a pair not made in the UK.

Back to the original topic.. Every bearded hiptser needs a flannel to complete the lumberjack look.

I only wear flannel underwear. Soft on my tushy but a Pazuzu to wash.

I just squealed in delight. Madame neuro, you have just possibly made my impending winter-miserable self a marginally less unhappy woman. I shall go try one on tomorrow! Thank you!
