RedHead Ultimate Flannel Shirts for Men
You get what you pay for.
I liked the colors and I liked that the shirts come in a long size. I bought a XLT in 3 different colors. I am 6'6" and 260 lbs the shirts fit fine. They are definitely made for individuals with a rectangular build. I would prefer it if the shirt had a more tapered (fitted) build. After several times wearing the shirts the material is getting fuzzy. I know it's flannel but it seems to be lifting. They aren't pilling yet but I think that will begin soon. My grandfather wears flannels and his last for decades. I bet he pays way more for his shirts than I paid for these.

Redhead Ultimate Shrinkage Test
I purchased 3 Redhead Ultimate flannel shirts, XLT, solely on the basis of the claim of being virtually shrink-free. As a tall person it is difficult to order flannel shirts that have the proper sleeve length after washing/drying. I submitted one of the shirts to a test. Without ever wearing the shirt I washed it in "warm" water and for the setting of the dryer used "medium". The dimensions prior to washing were: 37" sleeve, and 36.5" from base of the collar to the tail of the shirt. After washing and drying the dimensions were: 36" sleeve and 34.5" from base of collar to the tail of the shirt. I washed and dried the shirt only once. From the data one can see that the sleeve shrunk 1", and the body of the shirt shrunk 2". As to a conclusion, I will let the reviewer decide for himself or herself. I plan to return the shirts.

Comfortable and Right Weight
I wanted a medium weight flannel to wear in the spring and fall in the Colorado Mountains. This is the perfect shirt!
If cooler, I can always layer with a cotton base layer, but otherwise it is perfect. They are very soft. I wash in cold, hang dry, and then tumble without heat for the softness.
The size is true, the colors true.
I am very satisfied.
