in the 90's, flannel shirts with long shirt tails was popular with boys of all ages, girls of all ages, and older women, but not older men. it was also preferred to turn the shirt backwards if it had large areas of writing (or symbols)on it, so the writing would be on the back(unless the large area of writing or large logo was the name brand advertisement of a designer brand such as Tommy Hilfiger

I wore flannel a lot, one time I was pulled out by the counselor to see if I had enough money for other clothes! But yeah, I never realized they were a fashion. My little fifth-grade mind just knew that my shirts were free, and that that was awesome.

I still have one of my flannels and I still wear it occasionally. The other thing to do was to tie your flannel around your waist. This could be done while wearing a leather jacket if desired.

I still wear all the stuff mentioned on here. A little behind the times, am I? No wonder I've never been considered for best dressed at school... Oh well, I am liking it.

I've been wearing flannels since I was in the 4th grade :) they are the best. Cheap, but they last a long time.

I loved my flannels too! I used to think I was in Alice in Chains or something, because my favourite trick was baggyish torn faded blue jeans, green & black flannel shirt tied around my waist, tight black band t-shirt (I was skinnier then and could pull that off) black leather Bike jacket and a backwards baseball cap. Geez I was a cool looking guy back then, wish I could still do that now! :)

I also still wear flannel shirts to this day, not because of being stuck in the 90s (okay, maybe a little bit) but most of all because... geez flannel shirts ROCK MY SOCKS, that's why! Also they really go great with my leather jacket when tied around my waist.

I was wearing those to school in the 80's when no one else did. They are comfortable and warm so whether they're the fashion or not I still wear them. It was pretty silly when grunge was hot and the models were wearing them on the runway. When I saw that I thought, it's the beginning of the end...

Brandi - April 02, 2010 - Report this comment
Yea, I was born in 96 and I'm a 13 year old girl but I wear flannels with band t-shirts and dark flare jeans, sometimes ripped.... I hate fashion anyway, and I prefer 90s and 70s fashions to today's.

my parents were both hippies, but also liked grunge music and stuff...they are very open minded...and had nothing against it that i wore flannel shirts and ripped jeans, not to forget my holy skateboard! :D

I have lots of flannels. So warm and soft. Perfect for fall days before you need to break out the winter jacket. Black watch plaid is my favorite.

*Sigh* There was always something about the boys that wore big flannels that made me drool. Oh how I miss the days when guys were more casual, these days, it takes guy longer to get ready than the girls, lol!

Flannel shirts are back my friends. Especially big in hip hop culture. I used to wear them and will probably get some more come winter.
Paul - September 24, 2010 - Report this comment
Scew Hip Hop/Rap culture! Flannel Shirts belong to the Grunge/Alt Rock '90s culture! I still wear mine and still buy them. I admit, I'm stuck in the '90s, still listening to Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chain, Stone temple Pilots, Hole, Screamming Trees and many more. That's were flannel belongs. Forever Grunge!

Born in 95' I truly missed this time. the 00's pissed me off. my memories of the nineties are better then the ones i got from the 00's. i realized about 4 years ago that 90s were the best. which is why i wear my flannels, jeans, waffle shirts, and adjustable flat rims. i wanna go back and be born in 95 to live my glory days in the 90s!!!!

I think that the lameness of fashion in the 00's proved that the 90's were that last great decade. And I noticed flannel shirts are back in style! I practically lived in just two or three flannels back in the day.

I remember I even bought a flannel at abercrombie & fitch in 1995/6. It was a cool brown one -- very Cobain.

A very sad and forgettable era in style and music. The sludge that came from Seattle and their goofy clothes were a joke. Good riddance.

Actually I have been a turtleneck guy from my childhood. But one day I found out that it turns me on to see other guys wearing a turtleneck under a button-up shirt. So I enjoyed the 90's when it became fashionable to wear flannel shirts over turtlenecks. 20 years later it's still one of my favorite winter looks: A white (or off-white) turtleneck, and over that a plaid flannel shirt tucked into corduroy jeans, with just the top button unfastened, but sometimes I hide the turtleneck by buttoning the flannel shirt all the way up.
