Perfect for fall

What a soft, warm flannel -- perfect for crisp fall days. I'll buy another if ever on sale.

Although it's a substantial shirt, it might be a bit of an exaggeration to call it "heavyweight." My small weighs less than 14.5oz, and, for example, the Alaskan Guide flannel by Filson is much beefier. Nevertheless it's 60F in my house right now and I'm cozy sitting with the Fjord over a t-shirt. With that outfit I'm also comfortable walking around town at 50F.

The Zappos picture of the Deitrich: Classic Navy is more color-realistic than the pictures on the Backcountry or Patagonia websites.

I'm 6'0" and 155lbs and a small is a perfect fit for wearing un-tucked. The fit is still not trim, so if you're uncertain I recommend sizing down.

There are only two Patagonia labels on this shirt and the buttons are plain. The collar tag is easy to remove after clipping its stitching, and the side tag can be cut close.
