See Now, Buy Now: The Best Corduroy Pants for Fall and Winter Are These Ones

The coolest corduroys around? The folks at Flint and Tinder sure think so.

I mention in the headline above that we’re going to dive into the best corduroy pants for the season in this post, so you’re probably wondering when I’m going to spill the beans. Specifically, what brand of corduroy pants?? Well, hold your horses, folks: Those would be the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants, a seriously upgraded take on classic corduroys that’ll flip everything you thought you knew about the style on its head, making ’em some of the best corduroy pants you’ve laid eyes on (or worn, for that matter). These slim corduroy pants take all the things you know and love about Flint and Tinder’s 365 Pants (cut like jeans, but with the style points of chinos) and transition those attributes into one mighty fine pair of fall and winter corduroys. After all, finding the right pair of this eternal style can prove tricky. Old-school cords were likely the provenance of those who came before you, often too baggy and too fussy and not … quite cool enough. And if you thought corduroy pants couldn’t be cool, simply look no further than the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants — seriously.

Rich colors like this shade of Chocolate make the Flint and Tinder 365 Cords a big-time winner.

But these pants are about more than just the impeccably tailored fit (and they’re also available in Straight Fit) — these pants have it all, top-to-bottom. These slim corduroy pants are made from an 8oz. blended cotton-and-spandex fabric for all-day comfort at the office or at a family holiday (like Thanksgiving!), and you won’t miss a beat at the office, either. The fact that the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants come in three highly fall and winter-friendly colors makes them an impeccable pair of pants — wear them with your favorite chambray shirt and leather chukka boots, or team them with a thermal henley and rugged captoe boots for more laidback style. If you thought corduroy pants couldn’t be stylish, slim or modern, think again — the Flint and Tinder 365 Corduroy Pants have all that, and then some.

Style Pick of the Week: Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover

The best hooded sweatshirt you’ll ever own? Quite possibly.

For as much as we talk about Flint and Tinder here on the blog, just know that there’s a very, very good reason behind it — and if ever you’ve tried out any of the brand’s excellent men’s style essentials, you know that the rugged, classic in-house brand at Huckberry can back up the hype. In fact, the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover is perhaps the best men’s hooded sweatshirt you’re apt to find right now, and that’s great news — early fall is here, and with it, the promise of crisp weather and breezy autumn nights. If the brand’s 10-year guarantee is anything to go by — which it is — then, you’ll have this one for a long time. And if an American-made hooded sweatshirt sounds too casual for you, rest assured that this stylish fall sweater is as versatile as you make it.

Shop Mott & Bow Today!For instance: The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover features American cotton, done up in a tailored cut that’s flattering whether you wear it over a Flint and Tinder slub tee — always a great call — or even atop a classic Oxford shirt (it can be done, trust me).  It’s yet another rugged layer from Flint and Tinder that gets all the details right, in similar fashion to, say, the Flint and Tinder Overshirt. And for my money’s worth, you need both in your closet this season.

Shop Mott & Bow Today!The little details are really what set the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover apart, however. We’re talking warm, cozy 23oz. fleece from Carolina, plus twill-reinforced taped seams. And the finishing touch? The cut-and-sew process takes place in Los Angeles — this stylish hooded sweatshirt really is as American as it gets. The Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover also comes in an array of neutral, versatile colors (including Forest as seen above), perfect for when you want to wear a hooded sweatshirt without a large athletic logo. That understated style means this hooded sweatshirt works atop a classic chambray shirt with slim tan chinos and chukka boots on  the weekend with ease. You can — and should — also layer it under a broken-in denim jacket with high-top sneakers for a chilly early fall bonfire. Again, as if the Flint and Tinder pedigree itself wasn’t enough to make you consider buying this thing, perhaps the tough, American-made construction and surprising style potential are selling points? The ball’s in your court. Happy fall, and thanks for reading!

#OOTD: A New Way to Wear A Stylish Short-Sleeve Shirt for Summer

Maybe you’ve got a very specific look in mind when it comes to a stylish short-sleeve shirt — and perhaps, it just so happens to be a look that’s not actually stylish (Think: Maybe the short-sleeve shirts your dad used to wear?). We’re stepping it up in a big way today for the rest of summer, introducing you to what could just be your favorite short-sleeve shirt — and it should come as no surprise that it comes from Taylor Stitch in a handsome indigo fabric. See, it’s already a major improvement from other short-sleeve shirts. The best short-sleeve shirts on the market actually offer more versatility than you think, giving you the option to wear them to a rooftop cocktail hour or even to the office on a casual Friday — that’s the case with the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt as seen below, at least. It’s the same fit you know and love, done in a way that just works for summer (namely, the lack of fabric on your arms). And when you pair it with slim chinos from Flint and Tinder, plus a sleek pair of refined leather slip-ons, you’re looking at a shirt that’s seriously sharp — not sloppy (a la Dwight Schrute). We’re even mixing in a stylish leather dress watch for good measure. The whole #OOTD below is visually interesting and versatile, fitting for a weekend patio dinner or weeknight rooftop drinks — or, again, a day at the office (the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt never fails). Rethink what you thought you knew about the short-sleeve shirt, then let’s get down to business.

The final message I’ll leave you with is this: The Flint and Tinder Overshirt toes the line between casual and rugged, and when the sun goes down at your next summer weekend outing, you’ll be glad you’ve got it handy.

One of two standout colors on tap this season.

It starts with the fabric when it comes to the Flint and Tinder Vintage Boardshorts — it’s abrasion-resistant, four-ply nylon fabric that makes these stylish boardshorts so functional, and a soft nylon interior lining sets them apart in that regard, too.
