Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket


Flint and Tinder may sound like a new dating app for outdoorsmen, but it’s actually an apparel brand available exclusively at Huckberry that is dedicated to partnering with the best garment makers in the US to jump start American manufacturing. That means hoodies that start as cotton in the Mississippi Delta and get finished in Los Angeles. That means moleskin shirts from third-generation, family-owned Texas factory. And that means a trucker jacket that spans from coast to coast.

The Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket begins life as waxed, weatherproof Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth in New Jersey. The sailcloth, waxed on both sides, provides both warmth and insulation. The sailcloth makes its way to Los Angeles where soft cotton flannel is added to the inside to create a jacket that can be worn with only a t-shirt. The jacket is finished with two button-flap chest pockets, two welt hand pockets, side buckles that allow for a more tailored fit and antique metal buttons. This is a jacket that not only looks great out of the package, but also gets better with age, developing a patina unique to the wearer. One day, when cars and trucks all drive themselves and people wonder what truckers were, this jacket is still going to be around.
