Why Mike Shinoda Loves Flannel Shirts
“I have a rack of them in my closet, but the funny thing is that I’ve never considered that an important staple of what I do or what I wear – it’s you guys that picked it out as a thing,” Shinoda tells the audience.
“If you’ve got a black shirt on, and you’re playing an outdoor festival and it’s chilly, then you can throw [a flannel] right on the top,” he adds. “It’s very sensible and attractive option. I’m not joking when I tell you that I have a flannel in the works for you guys. When people are like, ‘What’s the next thing for you?’ I’m like… flannels!’”
