Style Pick of the Week: Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket

Your new favorite fall jacket from Huckberry, easy as can be.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably got an ever-expanding list of fall style essentials to buy from the good folks at Flint and Tinder (including a rugged fall shirt jacket as seen above). And if you’re a fan of the blog, you know that plenty of gear picks from F&T (the in-house brand at Huckberry) are suited for each and every season — but especially the depths of fall. It’s wild to be in the midst of kicking off October right now, so with this ideal season in mind, it’s high time you picked up one of the best shirt jackets for men: It’s time you picked up the Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket for rugged layering this season.

As with any Flint and Tinder waxed jacket (including the much-coveted Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket), it delivers plenty of standout form and function for crisp fall days, chilly fall nights and adventures in between. But first off: What is a CPO jacket? We’ve talked about the silhouette in the blog on the past, but current CPO jackets pay homage to the Chief Petty Officer’s naval coat — think rugged, modern and tough in the current age, and this Flint and Tinder waxed jacket certainly delivers. Let’s go through the specs, shall we? Keep on scrolling.

Also available in a sleek Charcoal color.

As with the best waxed jackets, it starts with the fabric and construction, two areas in which Flint and Tinder clearly excels. In the case of this stylish shirt jacket, it’s a cotton-and-spandex blend, waxed for toughness and yet flexibility. The hardware on the Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket also delivers, what with custom FNT gunmetal buttons getting the tough treatment here.

Front-button chest pockets and an interior pocket designed to hold your everyday carry also provide the utility you need this season, be it on the road or at home. This rugged shirt jacket should wear easily atop all your favorite fall style staples, be it a thermal henley and rugged chore pants, or else slim faded denim and a garment-dyed Oxford shirt for casual versatility. Is there anything the Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket can’t do? In this day and age, not quite. Wear it on a solo hike, wear it to grab to-go beers, throw it on for yard work or another fall morning cup of coffee … it’s the perfect fall layer, over and over.
