To tuck, or not to tuck?
The Quiksilver Men's Fitz Forktail Flannel Shirt is a classic flannel for nursing dark roast, working on your fixie, or reviewing your vinyl collection in the comfort of your urban man-cave. Made from a soft-brushed cotton that's nice on the skin and breathes well in the midday heat, the Forktail has a longer length and slimmer cut, making it a great choice for casual office work-wear (tucked in), or as an all-weekend uniform (untucked) for chilling hard at home or around town.

Different Kinda FIt
This thinner flannel is great for those cool early mornings as a shirt that's just easy to throw on. Its got a more athletic fit and has very tight sleeves. The colors of this shirt look a little faded and may appear a little duller then in the photo. This is not my first quicksilver flannel and they often have the same fit and finish.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: large
I'm a new Backcountry customer, and while I've been happy with nearly everything I've purchased, I have to say this shirt is a really crappy item. I'm 5'9" and might hit 160 lbs after Thanskgiving dinner. I can barely button a large across my chest and the sleeves are too short. After two washings the top button starts in the middle of my chest but the shirt twists around and the bottom button ends up sever inches off center. You can buy a better shirt at Costco.
- Fit: True to size
If you think it looks cool, it does. If you want it to fit true to size, it does.
