The Best Flannel-Lined Jeans Will Keep You Warm in the Coldest Climes

It gets cold in winter. That’s a no-brainer, of course, but if you live in an area where the Fahrenheit scale falls below zero, dropping temperatures take on a different meaning. The season can be perilous, and lingering outdoors unadvisable. In the event that you must, extra precaution needs to be practiced. Standard wares just won’t cut it. This means that fits need to have more than one layer, several if need be. And as far as denim, flannel-lined jeans are the best option.

Flannel, the woven material beloved by Brooklyn hipsters and citizens of Maine, Washington, and Oregon, is unquestionably warm, retaining any heat that might escape your body. It’s also a lot thinner than, say, lambswool and mohair, and less costly than cashmere, which is why it makes for the perfect lining. You can also opt for synthetic fleece, but if organic fibers are more to your liking, flannel is for you.

Admittedly, jeans with this underlayer are pretty scarce; only a handful of brands offer them regularly, and they are usually billed as workwear or styles for the great outdoors. Also, the silhouettes are often large and the density of the denim thick. But if you plan on visiting a tundra sometime soon, or just want to keep your legs warm and cozy in tundra-like city streets, make sure to check out the selection below.
