The Thursday Buy: Get this Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt for Early Fall Layering

What’s a guy to do when he wants one of the best layers for early fall, for those times when it’s not quite chilly enough to throw on an insulated jacket, but it’s too cold to rock your favorite T-shirt solo? That’s easy: Turn to a hybrid layer that represents the best of both worlds: Something like the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt. It’s got plenty going for it, starting with the fact that it hails from the same company that makes the famed Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket, as surefire a fall style classic as you’re apt to find these days. Better still, it’s got the warmth of a sweatshirt and the rugged good looks of a henley, to boot. And on top of that, it’s on sale at Huckberry right now for under $64. That’s marked down from $98, so you’re getting quite the nice discount on one of your new favorite sweaters for fall — or is it a henley? You be the judge, but just know that you won’t be able to live without it soon enough.

The best of both worlds, with rugged style in spades

The Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt checks all the right boxes if it’s rugged, casual style you seek. It’s practically made to be thrown on in laidback weekend situations, especially with vinyl spinning and hot coffee in hand. It’s really the construction that makes the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt stand out handsomely, as with most all things Flint and Tinder. It starts with super-soft, substantial-but-not-too-heavy French Terry cotton fabric, translated into a henley style with that three-button placket.

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). Because it’s made by Flint and Tinder, consider that a bit of another guarantee of quality and long-lasting style. Simply put, the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt looks darn good, wears well with all of your favorite fall style staples, and keeps on trucking day after day, all season long. With fall on the way, upgrade your wardrobe accordingly.

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!
