Here’s the thing: You need a rugged jacket for everyday wear ASAP, one of the best jackets for men. And if you read The Style Guide, you recognize Flint and Tinder — and the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket by default. The made-in-America brand from Huckberry knows how to make a prime rugged fall layering essential or two, and here’s the great news, The Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker is back this season. Even better? The Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker is here in a new, improved and very seasonally ready shade of Havana! Isn’t that great? I think so, at least. It’s got all the specs you know and love from Flint and Tinder, from the sturdy, durable, American-made construction to the use of tough Martexin waxed sailcloth. And the result is a versatile and stylish fall jacket. The Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker also features the sort of silhouette that’s casual enough for fall weekend layering with a slim striped henley, yet equally ready to wear with an American-made Oxford and dark denim to the office on casual Friday (or casual … Thursday?).
And the Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker packs quite the punch in terms of functionality, too. In addition to the weather-resistant exterior, it’s lined with herringbone cotton flannel, a warm feature that doesn’t look half-bad if you happen to flip back the sleeve cuffs. And the hardware? Why, the Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker is finished with antique metal buttons featuring the F&T logo — a neat touch that’ll get better with age. You can also pick up the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker in a sleek shade of Coal and a fall-ready shade of Whiskey, but for my money’s worth, I can’t get enough of the Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker in the unique shade of Havana. Wear it with slim black denim, wear it with faded American-made denim or olive chinos … and don’t forget the rugged leather boots.
