Duluth Trading customers love our legendary Free Swingin’ Flannel so much we set out to create one that could be grabbed year ’round.

Our product team got cracking by starting with a polyester/cotton fabric blend that’s 25% lighter than our Free Swingin’ Flannel shirt. Sweat-wicking polyester keeps you cool and dry, while prewashed, brushed cotton feels soft and comfortable, as a flannel should.

Then we built it tough with room to move. Whether or not you’re bucking logs, a modern bi-swing back and Armpit Gussets offer maximum freedom of movement.

Designed and Tested by Tradesmen

No Duluth Trading product is complete until we’ve put it to the test, so we enlisted Seattle Trades Panel member Daniel Mihalyo and Duluth Women Model Shana Martin to give it a go.

It’s no coincidence we recruited someone from Seattle to test our Crosscut™ Flannel. Artist Daniel Mihalyo, of Lead Pencil Studio, wore our Crosscut in all sorts of weather with comfortable results. The wicking fabric not only keeps sweat under control, it also dries quicker in drizzling rain so you can keep working.

“The construction is amazing and the details, like the pen holder, are very appreciated. Love the Armpit Gussets and bi-swing back expansion,” says Daniel. “I like this shirt for temperamental Seattle summers.”

Six-time World Champion Lumberjill and Huntington’s Disease advocate Shana Martin saws logs with comfort and ease on the cover of our recent Women’s catalog. Log rolling, boom running and crosscut sawing would be impossible without the ease of movement Crosscut Flannel offers.

Log rolling and boom running were a way for lumberjacks to pass the time in logging camps after a long day driving logs down the river to the sawmill. Now it’s featured on ESPN and Shana has competed professionally since 1997.
