    Rock the flannel. Pair it up with, oh, I don't know. A white T, some denim, a pair of Wolverine 1000 miler's and you're good to go. I agree with the other posters here. Leave the shirt untucked and embrace the look.

    Feel free to post some pics once you've pulled it together.

    Flannels are warm, soft, and comfy. I go with "quieter" colors like browns, blues, and greens and avoid red like the plague (lest I look like "Earl" from The Dinosaurs ). I leave mine untucked and go with a slimmer fit for a sharper look. I wear them with chukkas, plain white sneaks, or (of course) a pair of boots.

    Why would you want to avoid looking like the best dressed dino of all time?

    And as long as we're chiming in, my work boots have steel toes.

    bold: Eh, depends on what you mean by "sturdy boots" or even "work boots." I will guess by those categories one means either steel toed boots or something like Wolverines, maybe even Timberlands. Most of my friends who camp and go hiking wear actual hiking boots. None that I know wear "sturdy boots" for when they moved or helped moved people into their place of residency; they just wore gym shoes.

    I wear flannel shirts on occasion. I pull it off typically by undoing the buttons then removing one sleeve at a time.

    I just ordered some flannels from Proper Cloth and I'm wearing them with Jeans or chinos with chippewa boots. I do not have a beard. I am not trying to pull off a lumberjack look but during the cold months I either look slick with sweaters and shirts and peacoats etc, or I go more rugged with plaids and boots. It's not a look, but more how I feel each day and where I go. I'm in new england. Anything is acceptable, though suits around these small towns are out of place. I'm not worried about being pidgeonholed into a look and if you don't walk around trying to fit into something like that, I don't think people will think anything. But likewise, if you're a skinny guy who wears skinny jeans and winter hats in the summer, people are going to say you're a hipster. Look like you, groom like you, then dress however you want.

    I'm not sure how much the boots factor into it; lumbersexual hipster is all the rage here, and most of them don't even wear boots (they are usually in sneakers).

    I think the key factor is the beard; the longer your scruff gets, the more lumber the look.

    After reading through this thread I can't help but wonder if more than 51% of the readers here own work boots. It's killing me that I will never know.

    On topic: You can always start with solid color flannels. Flannels in general can be a good look, regardless of whether you go full lumberjack or not. They are extremely comfortably and have been very popular here for the past couple winters. I feel like the reason people in LA like them is because they are warm on their own, but not excessively so. They are nice for a day in the lower 60's without having to throw on a coat. That and because the lumbersexual look is alive and well here and has been for too long.
