It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Flint and Tinder and the brand’s line of well-made, hard-wearing wardrobe staples. Regular Primer readers are probably familiar with us waxing rhapsodic about the top-selling waxed trucker jacket. For good reason: this handsomely rugged piece of outerwear gets better every time it’s worn. That’s why it tops several of our best-of lists:
The jacket perfectly balances comfort and durability—not to mention style and practicality. It doesn’t just reference classic American workwear, either: the jacket (along with most of Flint and Tinder’s line) is cut, sewn, and finished in LA. (Read our post about some American brands that have been rocking it for over 100 years).
Featuring a tough weather-resistant sailcloth exterior and a soft flannel lining, this is the type of piece you could toss on over a nice sweater and chinos for work or a date, and still look pulled-together. Unlike those yellow raincoats, which tend to skew a little “sea captain in a gale”. (Which is fine if that’s your thing….)
Thanks to its minimalist styling, the jacket has timeless appeal. You’ll still be wearing it next year, or even in 10 years, without looking dated. Depending on your location (and your layering game) it’s good for year-round wear, too. See how we styled it in this spring Live Action Getup, as well as our most popular outfit from Fall Getup Week.
And right now, this essential is on sale for 20% off the usual price. Word from Huckberry is that this is the first and only time the jacket is getting marked down this season. So even if temperatures are starting to creep up where you live, don’t hesitate. The sale only lasts until next week—and two colors are already sold out.
