The Thursday Buy: You Need the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants in Your Daily Wardrobe

Folks, when the going gets tough, when it feels to hot to wear pants, when you feel like your summer wardrobe is on the fritz, well, that’s when you need a pair of the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants. I’d be willing to bet that if you read this site on the regular, you don’t need me to sing the praises of Flint and Tinder, the excellent in-house brand dreamed up by the fine folks at San Francisco-based Huckberry. They’ve long been one of my favorite retailers, and indeed, one of the best places to buy menswear online, and that only becomes more clear by the day. So, that’s a great place to start if you’re thinking about buying the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants — and yes, I mean right now, as hot as it might be. That’s because the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants aren’t your average pair of chinos. They’re certainly part of any well-regarded list of the best shopping picks at Huckberry, but it goes beyond that.

We’ve certainly talked in the past about what makes these some of my favorite pants, but consider this a refresher – and again, even in the summer heat. The remarkable Flint and Tinder 365 Pants are a Huckberry best-seller for good reason, starting with the fact that they’re built as tough as jeans, with the styling potential of chinos. It’s the five-pocket design and yet polished build that stands apart from the pack. That versatility makes them easily wearable in situations where it’s too casual for jeans, but you still want to feel comfortable (and look great). Heck, go ahead and buy two pairs for $175 then thank me later.

Particularly in the summer months, I’m a huge fan of the Salt colorway, which sits nicely at the intersection of off-white and bright white (which might be a bit too fashion-forward based on the situation. Beyond that nice and summer-ready option, they come in a dozen colors, each as wearable as the next with other Flint and Tinder essentials. You’ve also got your pick between Slim, Straight and Tapered fits. I’ve tried out both the Slim and Straight fits, and even the Straight fit is nicely cut, and not overly baggy.

The 8oz. cotton blend fabric, with just a hint of stretch, is also breezy enough for summer, but dependable enough for fall and winter. That makes them a true pair of four-season men’s pants, a rarity for under $100. Remember though, you can buy two pairs for $175 and save a bit of extra cash. Plus, the versatile design pairs well with everything from a Flint and Tinder T-shirt (right now) to a chambray shirt layered over your favorite henley (in the fall and winter). If you haven’t yet tried out the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, consider this the perfect time to take the plunge. You’ll stay polished and stylish, even in the heat — I guarantee it. If you’ve tried out some of these pants, let me know in the comments. Stay stylish!
