Long before Japanese designers brought back black as one of the most enduring and popular menswear colours, the likes of Johnny Cash, Marlon Brando, and other iconic men made it synonymous with individuality and rebellion. Today, Flint and Tinder pays homage to the most painfully stylish of colours with an awesome capsule selection of apparel that like these men style icons, is entirely made in America.
There may be an absence of vibrancy to be found within the Flint & Tinder Black Collection, but that doesn’t mean to say that there is an absence of style and considerable comfort. For example, their latest All-American Jeans are stonewashed and crafted from a stretch for a soft, comfortable fit from the very first time you pull them on. As for the rest of the capsule, well, you can have it any colour so long as it’s black.
