I grew up in Suburban America for most of my life, both coasts, and a lot of different cities. When fall and winter would come around, everyone would wear hoodies (sweatshirts) to stay warm, and then switch to jackets if it got really cold. I decided to attend university in West Virginia, where I discovered flannel shirts. WHY ISN'T EVERYONE WEARING THESE? I have never been warmer than when I am wearing a flannel shirt, I can find them for pretty low prices too, and they aren't as bulky as hoodies can sometimes be. Seriously, if you have never owned a flannel shirt, buy one. It changed my life. I was able to buy two flannels for around 25 dollars today (total, not for each) and they are both very high quality.
