If your daily regimen includes felling fir trees and stacks of flapjacks, the Billabong Vacant Flannel Shirt is your new go-to long-sleeve. The heavy Sherpa fleece lining racks up enough warmth to let you swing an axe bare-handed in the woods for hours, while the back yoke’s stylish metal badge details and faux-leather shoulder patch offset the fact that one could make an afghan out of your back hair .

Beware of the shrinkage
The immortal words of George Costanza, "I was in the pool", apply to this shirt. Well, sort of. I'm 5'10", 175 with a 32" waist. Based partly on the review that said "I'm tall & slender and this looks like it was made for larger guys...", I bought the Medium assuming the fit would be jumbo-style like many snowboard jackets & pants. Wrong. I tried it on when it arrived and THOUGHT it fit so I washed it & threw it in the dryer. Because I'm afraid of baking & shrinking more of my clothes than I alreay have, I only had it in the dryer for about a half hour. It wasn't even dry when I took it out. Tried it on again later. Whoops. Severe shrinkage. VERY cool shirt. Wish it fit. 5 stars for cool. Minus 2 for s**t fit.
Good as a jacket, ok as a shirt
This shirt is very heavy as it has a lambs wool lining. It has a 'straight cut' meaning it is not fitted/tapered. I wear it as a jacket and a as a shirt, but prefer it as a jacket due to the fit. It is well built, has some steez, and I dig it.
not my style
although its comfy as all hell, I couldn't pull off wearing it. I'm tall and slender and this looks like it was made for larger guys out there, or those who enjoy the baggier fitting clothing.
Is this jacket oversized or does it have...
Is this jacket oversized or does it have a regular fit. I'm 6'2 and 140 pounds. and wear a large for regular flannel shirts
Whatup Dan, this jacket has a slightly oversized fit. I'm 6 feet, 155 lbs and wear this shirt in a large. If you're normally a size large in flannels, a large will fit you best in this shirt too.
