Well the flannel shirt is often associated with rednecks here... Though at least in Washington/Oregon its associated with the region due to our long history of woodsmen and the lumber industry.
Also I am pretty sure most rednecks don't buy their red flannel shirts at Nordstrom's... lol
The flannel shirt (referred to as "a flanno" by Australians) is typically reflected by Bogan culture - Not too dis-similar from what you call rednecks. They love cheap beer, V8 cars, and fighting (often over ugly Bogan women, but anything will do, really).
The hipsters wear flannos too, but no one actually cares, because they are hipsters, and are generally useless. At least [some] bogans have a trade job/skill.
