Lumberjacks have long been a symbol for the rugged, masculine man but never quite associated with being trendy – until now. Here’s how to achieve this style -the “lumbersexual” look has gone mainstream and many of your favorite designers are creating looks to fit the bill. Check out some of our favorite pieces that will help you…get the look!
1. L.L. Bean Flannel Button Up Shirt
One of the quintessential pieces of the lumbersexual look is the flannel. No trendy lumberjack can go without one. The fine craftsmen at L.L. Bean have long been known as some of the best purveyors of flannels. In fact, they back the quality of their products so much that if you are at any point unsatisfied, you may return or exchange your purchase. Try the Lee Shirt Button Down Space Dyed Check.
Whether you are ready to chop down a tree or strut through the street, your Carhartt jacket will keep you warm, stylish and protect you from the elements. The brand has been known over 125 years for their durable and rugged products. With the recent popularity for quality made goods, fashionistas of all types have reimagined and reinvigorated this brand into a stylish must have for today’s man. Try the Carhartt Anchorage Parka.
3. Red Wing Work Boots
The Red Wing Heritage 875 and 877 boots were introduced by the brand over 60 years ago but are still a perfect fit for the modern man.

No lumbersexual look is complete without a properly maintained beard.
