Like we mentioned before, the 1990s were a strange time for fashion because there were many dodgy trends. Flannel shirts were a staple of the decade as people decided that they wanted to look like lumberjacks. There’s nothing wrong with this of course but it’s as inexplicable as the Cowboys’ playoff game against the Packers in 2023.
One of the reasons why it was popular was because many bands favored a grunge aesthetic. We’re talking about the likes of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The ’90s was a simpler time for many reasons and the flannel shirt remains an enduring symbol (via Billboard).
