Prince of wales
While the future Edward VII was the first Prince of Wales to wear this highborn fabric in the 19th century, it was to his successor that it owes its name and part of its reputation. Rapidly adopted by the British and Americans - it covered the royal shoulders of Edward VIII during a visit to New York – in the 20th century, this nuanced grid pattern went from an indispensable country-style to a major classic of urban masculinity.
Flannel is combed wool or cotton fabric, which appeared in the 18th century coinciding with the introduction of the first looms. An imperishable classic in English drapery, this warm fabric with a slight fuzz (due to washing at the end of the production process) permits the elegant man to face the winter months without shivering.
