Before we kick things off — yes, I’m definitely recommending denim in the summer. More specifically, I’m recommending the Flint and Tinder All-American Washed Jeans, the latest addition to the brand’s stellar, ever-growing lineup of summer style essentials-. Flint and Tinder is the in-house, American-made brand from my pals at Huckberry, if you’re not familiar. However, if you read our Style Pick of the Week series at The Style Guide, you’re surely well-acquainted with the consistently stylish, rugged and versatile work being done by Flint and Tinder. Despite the summer heat, stylish light wash jeans definitely belong on your seasonal shopping list — they work on breezy summer nights or for summer travel style in equal measure, and Flint and Tinder certainly knows how to make ’em. The brand’s skill set encompasses comfortable favorites, like the Flint and Tinder Garment-Dyed Sweatpants, as well as breezy transitional layering pieces like the Flint and Tinder Slub Henley. And crucially, if you’ve been in need of sharp, versatile denim to add to your closet, the Flint and Tinder All-American Washed Jeans are the way to go. Truly, you shouldn’t count out denim in the summer months — with either Slim or Straight fit options available, the All-American Washed Jeans are crafted for just about any casual style situation you face. And they’ve got the durable, rugged specs for plenty of wear, including construction that’s encompasses made-in-the-USA quality.
The quality starts with a custom-designed 11oz. cotton denim from the lauded denim purveyors at North Carolina’s White Oak Cone Mills Denim — they make absolutely the finest-quality stuff in the United States. As part of the process, each pair of All-American Washed Jeans are unique thanks to a hand-washing and weaving process — no two pairs are alike. The vintage wash treatment also makes these jeans soft and comfortable, complete with a hint of helpful stretch. That means you should feel free to wear them with easygoing staples like a slim striped tee and classic suede chukkas at your next casual patio dinner or stylish summer barbecue. And because of the two polished fit options — again, Straight fit is available if you’re partial to that direction — you can even wear them to the office. Not sold? Try the All-American Washed Jeans with a slim white polo, leather tassel loafers and a lightweight khaki blazer to start.
For more easygoing style, try them out with your favorite pair of summer sneakers and a slim short-sleeve henley — add in a rugged dive watch, and you’re particularly well-dressed for hitting up a summer baseball game or grabbing some brews with your buddies. And because they’re American-made, you’re getting quality that’s built to last well through this summer. The great thing about well-made denim in a vintage wash is that it can even pull double duty come fall — keep these handy to wear with a shawl-collar cardigan and tough leather boots to step through falling leaves (seriously!). Are you a fan of the All-American Washed Jeans? If they’re on your shopping list, let me know over on Twitter. Remember: You can (and should!) make stylish light wash jeans part of your summer wardrobe.
That’s it, that’s all I’ve got today! For now — thanks for reading!
