Best shorts for men this summer.

When you throw on shorts in the summer months, you want casual, easygoing comfort, right? What about if you want a bit of versatility and a dash of rugged appeal, suitable for poolside lounging and the occasional odd job around the house? My friends, this is where the best shorts for men are going to fit your every need, especially when it comes to the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts. They strike that tricky balance between functional and easygoing, casually cool yet up for anything. Sounds like the best men’s shorts to get in your wardrobe, yes?

As you very well might have guessed, the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts are coming at you by way of San Francisco and Austin retailer Huckberry, one of the best online menswear brands a guy can shop. Flint and Tinder, the site’s esteemed in-house brand, already makes one of the best lightweight jackets, not to mention a rugged chambray workshirt, but the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts strike a more laidback, warm-weather-ready balance between the two. The inspiration is the highly useful yet still incredibly cool designs found in throwback French workwear, including a cotton and linen blend upgraded with polyurethane for stretch and toughness. The Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts get even better from there.

The design on the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts gives you plenty to consider and enjoy, be it the combination drawstring waistband with belt loops, or the back and hip pockets for storing your everyday carry essentials. The drawstring keeps ’em casual and relaxed, but you can also polish things up by adding a belt and perhaps wearing a nicely tailored sweater polo and some of the best men’s luxury sneakers. The pleasingly faded Turnbull Blue color of the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts is a nice touch that gives this pair a spring and summer-minded feel, while also offering up a dash of vintage style.

Taken all at once, you can wear the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts with everything from your favorite pocket tee to one of the best polos for men, all without missing a beat. Trot out the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts at BBQs and coastal vacations, or take them for a spin at a rooftop patio with leather loafers and a tailored short-sleeve buttondown.

Of course, the Chore Short name make them useful if you really want to get into a project or two, in the tradition of the French workwear from which the Flint and Tinder Dobby Chore Shorts get their name. Either way, these shorts will prove dependable and stylish all summer long.

Stop the presses, everyone: I think I’ve just found your new favorite jacket for spring, and I’ve got some even better news. It’s coming your way from the good folks at Flint and Tinder, the much-loved in-house brand at Huckberry perhaps best known for making everything from a USA-made Oxford shirt to one of the best waxed jackets on the market. Take those same design principles: Rugged good looks, durable design, classic styling potential and wrap ’em all up into one perfect spring jacket, and that’s what we’re dealing with when it comes to the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket. It’s a crucial part of the just-launched, aptly named Flint and Tinder Fatigue Collection, which blends the toughness of old-school military garb with the versatility that today’s modern man needs. It’s one of the best men’s jackets for spring, the kind of casual, go-anywhere staple you’re never going to tire of wearing.

To hear Huckberry tell it, the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Collection has been a long time coming, drawing inspiration from the sort of treasure trove finds you unearth at Army-Navy surplus stores or vintage stores in equal measure. There’s no doubt that prized pieces like the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket blend both a historical feel and modern-day wearability with ease — how’s that for one of the best men’s spring jackets, right?

Best men's field jacket for spring.

Available in a classic Fatigue Green or an eye-catching Field Camo as shown above, the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket is both perfectly on-trend and yet absolutely timeless. The shirt jacket design of the hard-wearing, 99 percent cotton-1 percent spandex Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket works well with just about anything else in your spring wardrobe, be it a classic pocket T-shirt, a durable henley or an Oxford shirt. The shirt jacket design offers up space for EDC essentials (note the two chest pockets), while the fit on the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket should prove easy to layer without restricting your movement if you wear it atop another buttondown shirt.

Plus, side hand pockets amp up the wearability (and storage space!) of the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket even further — as if this rugged shirt jacket could get any better. The breezy stretch cotton design is also a winner for the early days of spring, when you need a lightweight layer that’s not too bulky. The Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket is also packable in your favorite leather bag for weekend getaways, but those crucial pockets make it a highly useful jacket to wear during day-to-night travel. At just a shade under $150, the Flint and Tinder Fatigue Jacket is subtly stylish and yet packed with useful features — not to mention an air of retro cool — which makes it a worthy choice for your next spring jacket purchase. Layer up accordingly, folks.

See Now, Buy Now: This Waxed Work Jacket from Flint and Tinder Is a Seasonal Wardrobe Essential

When the going gets tough, the tough get one of the best waxed jackets from Huckberry. OK, maybe there’s more to it than that, but ensuring you’re outfitted properly through the worst weather is but one crucial step on the path towards tackling your to-do list (or even a few fun fall and winter adventures). When you’re in need of an outerwear upgrade, there’s one place you can go, and that’s Huckberry — at least, this writer thinks they’re one of the best places to buy one of the best men’s jackets, and that’s just a simple fact these days. And the Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket is one of the hardest-working, hardest-wearing options on the market at this point. You’re in luck if you’ve been searching for a rugged piece of outerwear fit for work or play, to say the least.

The Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket has been in the Huckberry rotation for some time now, and offers a change of pace compared to the slightly shorter, trimmer cut of the legendary and much-loved Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket. If you’re feeling like one of the best waxed jackets is precisely what you need, consider picking up both. In the meantime though, if you need a workwear-inspired jacket that pulls out all the stops (and does more than just look great), then the Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket takes the cake (and earns its rightful spot in your wardrobe).

The Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket is a reliable outerwear pick-up, without a doubt, from the way it’s built right down to the small details (like custom F and T hardware, of course). The waxed and weather-resistant canvas of the Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket should prove beefy but pliable, and relatively comfortable out of the box. Of course, it’s also going to break in over time and become even more flexible and yet still hard-wearing in its fight against the elements. This is the kind of jacket built for chilly, windy mornings tackling yard work or perhaps just taking down another cup of coffee on a blustery back. Whatever your intended use for the durable Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket, it can stand and deliver.

Unlike the flannel-lined Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket, the Mill Jacket boasts a more substantial, slightly warmer quilted interior lining, with a slightly roomier cut for layering with, say, a thermal henley and a flannel shirt. The lined soft cotton corduroy collar is a standout detail normally found on traditional British waxed jackets, so flip it up to protect against the chill. Store your phone or other EDC essentials in the interior media pocket or the exterior chest zip pocket, and keep warmer with welt hand warmer pockets. The Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket is built about as tough as it gets, and it’s going to perform like it, as it should for the price (an agreeable $240 at Huckberry). Your new favorite jacket for work — and perhaps a cold beer at the end of the day — is the Flint and Tinder Waxed Mill Jacket.

See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover is the Best Men’s Hoodie to Wear Right Now

There are plenty of menswear picks that never go out of style and always deliver — you’ve likely got your favorites, and if the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover isn’t among them as of yet, well, here’s hoping that changes today. It’s a Huckberry Bestseller for plenty of reasons, and it’s not hard to see when you dive into the specs: It’s one of the best hooded sweatshirts on the market, with the right design and construction to back it up. You see, the remarkable Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover is one of the pieces that helped build Huckberry (one of the best online retailers for men, lest we forget). The hoodie in question featured crowdfunding that shot through the roof in its early days, and an ongoing commitment to quality from the Flint and Tinder team keeps that same high standard rolling right along these days.

Sure, you could just pick up any old hooded sweatshirt at all, but that’s not the aim of today’s See Now, Buy Now series entry. The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover is designed to make you rethink what you thought you knew about hoodies. It’s made from better, more durable fabric, for starters: It uses Mississippi Delta cotton and a super-soft fleece lining for plenty of comfort right out of the box. The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover is also cut, sewn and finished with plenty of care in Los Angeles, hence the slightly higher price tag than your average hoodie. It’s one of the best hoodies for men, after all, so you should be prepared to invest just a bit (it retails for $98 at Huckberry). There’s plenty more where that came from, of course.

The right details, as you can see above on the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover, are what makes this hoodie so much more than your average hoodie. The hood is double-lined, so you can wear this surprisingly stylish hoodie layered up under, say, the impeccable and essential Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket (also a bestseller at Huckberry, as luck would have it). Even the draw cords of the hood on the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover are tipped with metal for added durability, just one of the reasons you’ll have this hoodie for a very, very long time.

If you still haven’t taken my word for it, listen to how Huckberry puts it: The famed retailer says this F&T hoodie uses “beefy yet insanely comfortable fabric,” the kind that should break in nicely the more you wear it. Naturally, you should get a ton of wear out of this hoodie, whether you team it with a pair of blue jeans from Huckberry or your favorite weekend pants. The options are limitless, the construction is top-notch and you simply can’t go wrong with any color of the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover — how’s that for the best hoodie to wear this season, right?

You can wear it like a normal henley, sure, but the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt is made to be worn over a super-soft long-sleeve tee with faded stretch denim for the ultimate in weekend-ready comfort. It also looks good enough to be worn atop, say, a chambray shirt with stretch chinos back at the office on a relaxed fall Friday, and again, that’s the beauty of the versatility you get with the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt. USA-made construction and tough rubber buttons make this henley sweatshirt a serious keeper, despite the on-sale price.

It’s only available in Washed Navy right now, but that color should prove a natural pairing with everything from burgundy corduroys to tan work pants (no matter how little work you have on your weekend agenda aside from visiting a new brewery).

See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker is the Best Transitional Jacket to Buy Now

You’re not alone if you feel like it’s a touch too early to be talking about early fall style essentials — aren’t we still smack-dab in the middle of August and the dog days of summer, after all? We sure are, but before you know it (certainly within a month), you might start to feel a slight chill in the air, and that’s why you need to stock up early on one of the best men’s transitional jackets. Who better to answer the call than Huckberry, makers of the famous, much-loved and fast-selling Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket? They’ve got a few tricks up their sleeves though, via a new take on the rugged Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker: The change-up in question comes courtesy of the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker, a new variation that toes the line between late summer breezes and heavy-duty fall and winter layering.

That it does so in perfectly handsome, rugged fashion is a huge bonus, and it only gets better from there. It’s one of the best men’s trucker jackets for that very reason: You can wear it just about anywhere, from one last summer getaway to the mountains or downtown to get coffee on a dewy morning. The 100 percent cotton waffle fabric is a textured, breathable weave, moreso than the burlier, heavier Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket (which is also lined in cotton flannel). To get right to the point, the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker bridges the gap quite nicely between the two

And because it’s indigo dyed, as the name so aptly calls out, it’s going to break in over time like your favorite pair of indigo jeans (coincidentally, another style staple you could also pick up at Huckberry). Let’s talk details, too – the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker has proper details to go along with the best of ’em. Those details include chambray-lined pockets and a chambray-lined back yoke. And as ever, custom F&T buttons separate the rugged and dependable Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker from other jackets in your closet. Come early fall, you’ll be glad you picked this jacket up. But once it shows up at your door, you’ll want to break it in right away.

#OOTD: How to Wear Chinos for Men Right Now

Look, there are certain menswear essentials a guy just has to rely on nearly every single day. You’ve got to be able to count on certain building blocks of your wardrobe to come through in the clutch, be it casual days at the office, late summer weekend hangouts or really, anything in between. Enter my guide on how to wear chinos for men, and let’s specifically take a deeper dive into the “chinos” that aren’t exactly like the chinos you wore in days gone by (perhaps baggy and with pleats, right?). The pants in today’s #OOTD are the stellar Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, which are less like full-on chinos and more like a nice blend between your favorite pair of denim and dress pants. Think of this like a Flint and Tinder review, or else, a buying guide about how to look great when wearing chinos. It can be done, folks, and that’s especially true if you’re wearing them with other classics, like the best chukka boots for men.

Now, I’ve waxed poetic here on the blog about the best pants for men on the market, like the very pants you’re about to read about today. They’re a versatile cross between rugged and refined, ready for adventure (even if adventure just happens to be kicking back at a brewery patio). Plus, the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants can be mixed and matched to your heart’s content, whether you wear ’em with a T-shirt and a trucker jacket, or with a classic Oxford shirt. If your wardrobe feels a bit stale, then adding some utility and versatility via the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants is the way to go. Check out today’s #OOTD, then give me a follow on Twitter to tell me if it’s what you’re looking for these days.

  • The Chinos: Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, $98 — There really is a ton to love about the iconic Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, including the fact that they’re made with a blend of cotton and spandex for ease of movement. They’re also available in three fits, a wide range of sizes and plenty of colors for every style. Let’s go with classic Navy here.
  • The T-Shirt: Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee, $72 — Haven’t yet tried the perfect-fitting, moisture-wicking, endlessly versatile Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee? Now’s your chance, because this tee is polished enough to wear to the office (when layered the right way) and cool enough to wear to the bar.
  • The Casual Jacket: Relwen Windbreak Blazer, $261 — Here’s where you can customize your outfit when it comes to how to wear men’s chinos. This casual cotton blazer is ideal to wear for a laidback return to the office, but it’s rugged and laidback enough to work during off-duty gatherings, too.
  • The Chukka Boots: Red Wing Heritage Weekender Chukka Boots, $230 — A go-anywhere pair of rugged men’s chukka boots is exactly what this look needs. Like the Relwen blazer shown above, these have enough polish for a casual workplace and enough style points for happy hour.
  • The Watch: Shinola Monster Automatic, $1,450 — Here’s even more rugged versatility at play. This luxury dive watch is truly a “wear anywhere, wear with anything” kind of timepiece, and it could become your new everyday watch to wear into fall and winter.
  • The Socks: American Trench Retro Stripe Socks, $12.50 — No great #OOTD is complete without a pair of the best socks for men, the kind you can wear with anything (like rugged chukka boots and chinos).
  • The Everyday Carry: Filson Rugged Twill Tote, $195 — Look, no matter where you’re going, be it to the office or to a weekend getaway, you need a handy way to haul your gear. Enter this true everyday carry essential, one you’ll have for years to come.
  • The Sunglasses: Taylor Stitch Nelson Sunglasses, $298 — Believe you me, it’s more than worth investing in a pair of the coolest men’s sunglasses, especially if they come from Taylor Stitch. This collaboration pair, made with luxury eyewear brand Dom Vetro, is a sharp way to accessorize from summer into early fall.

It’s high time you geared up for the (eventual) end of summer and the start of early fall. How best to do that? By wearing classic menswear picks that actually work as well in September and October as they do right now. The key behind it all, naturally, has got to be the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, which wear like jeans, look like chinos and perform stylishly no matter what. The comfortable, wear-with-anything Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee is your next move, because it’s wearable for days on end, it wicks away sweat and it looks mighty fine with a blazer (like the casual cotton blazer shown above) or something a little more rugged, like the classic Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket (it’s also worth buying one of those right now, in preparation for fall). The only pair of shoes you need to lace up with this look would be durable, dependable chukka boots, which wear pretty nicely with the best socks for men (it helps that the socks are American-made, too).

Splurge just a little bit on a luxury dive watch you can team with looks dressy and casual. The same can be said for the truly versatile and hard-working Filson Rugged Twill Tote shown here. The final piece is a standout, instantly recognizable pair of the coolest men’s sunglasses, which are certainly more than worth the investment. At the end of the day, the best menswear is the kind that’s versatile, fairly priced and able to be worn anywhere. This #OOTD checks all the right boxes, I’d say. Happy shopping!

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.

SHOP: The Flint and Tinder 365 Pants

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!
