See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder Wayfarer Blazer is Winter’s Best Blazer

Assuredly one of the best winter blazers you’ll find.

How tough is it to find an American-made blazer? It can be very, very tricky at the right price point — and yet, that’s precisely why the Flint and Tinder Wayfarer Blazer is, quite possibly the best winter blazer (and the best bang for your buck) right now. Would you expect anything less from Huckberry? Assuredly not. But how has Flint and Tinder managed to churn out a blazer made in the U.S.A, and at an agreeable price? It looks like magic, but it’s not quite that involved — or is it? Anyways, enough with the questions — for now. The Flint and Tinder Wayfarer Blazer checks all the right boxes if you want a blazer that’s versatile enough to wear to the office, yet casual and cool enough to wear on a date (perhaps atop your favorite henley for some high-low style). It’s also Flint and Tinder’s first take on a blazer, so truly … what’s not to love? The tailored two-button cut is fresh and modern, as are the lapels — they’re not too skinny, nor too wide. So, they should match up nicely with a classic knit tie and Oxford shirt in terms of dimensions (Note: Effortless Gent has a great guide to men’s ties here for more insight on this). So, you can wear it with a tie or on its own — but what about the specs?

The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

The difference is in the details when it comes to this Flint and Tinder blazer.

This stylish winter blazer can do just that — in this case, stand up to winter weather ably when layered underneath a classic topcoat. The blazer itself is crafted from Japanese wool-blend fabric — it’s also finished off with brushing for softness, so this isn’t the scratchy wool blazer you might have expected. Yes indeed, the Flint and Tinder Wayfarer Blazer is a unique take on the blazer, one that can be worn as many ways as you can dream up (but particularly with a crisp Oxford shirt and slim dark denim, for starters). Take your pick between Grey (apt for pairing with khaki chinos and a chambray shirt), Olive, or Charcoal (try it with slim black denim and a white Oxford shirt for a pop of contrast). When’s the last time you came across a blazer made in America that was A) Affordable and B) Versatile? I’d bet my bottom dollar this is the first time — if not, let me know on Twitter!
