The bomber jacket is a style staple in our opinion here at The Coolector and you can achieve Fonz-esque levels of coolness when you go for a leather version – particularly one as awesome as this Flint & Tinder x Golden Bear Leather Bomber Jacket. Available from the guys over at Huckberry, this classy piece of outerwear comes in two different colourways – namely, Black and Tobacco Brown – and it will instantly elevate the style of your winter wardrobe.
The Flint & Tinder x Golden Bear Leather Bomber Jacket has a price tag of $998 which speaks to the quality of both the materials used and the calibre of the craftsmanship throughout. This first class jacket is a exclusive, limited edition collaboration between two excellent American brands who have joined forces to build an heirloom nubuck leather jacket in a classic bomber silhouette.
Heritage Quality Goods
Boasting a timeless bomber jacket silhouette which has been cut from a butter-soft nubuck leather, there really is a tangible, heritage quality to this jacket from Flint & Tinder and Golden Bear. The premium nubuck leather is designed to last a lifetime, literally – so, this jacket is something that you will be passing on from one generation to the next so it keeps your family looking cool for many years to come.
The Flint & Tinder x Golden Bear Leather Bomber Jacket ($998) has wool and nylon blended cuffs and waist hem alongside a heavy duty, removable sherpa collar which utilises a button placket to secure it in place. This classy looking piece of outerwear has dual drop-in pockets with side hand entry and an interior media pocket for your smart phone and other EDC essentials.
Both Flint & Tinder and Golden Bear herald from San Francisco where they are spoilt by the year-round mild weather and the easy access to Northern California’s jaw-dropping countryside. But also by the abundance of industry-leading craftsmen that call this place home. The folks at Golden Bear are an excellent example of this. Ever since the 1920s, this legendary outfitter has made their top-notch outerwear for longshoremen and dock workers right here in The City by the Bay and the quality of their products truly is unparalleled – as you’ll soon realise if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one of these jackets.
Building on Success
Last year’s inaugural collaboration between Golden Bear and Flint & Tinder was an instant success, so they have decided to join forces for another limited run of sturdy, heirloom-grade leather jackets. The result is an extremely stylish, luxurious nubuck bomber jacket which is made strong enough to hold up as long as the Golden Gate Bridge’s suspension cables.
Priced at $998, the Flint & Tinder x Golden Bear Leather Bomber Jacket doesn’t come cheap but, as always, you get what you pay for so far as quality is concerned. This is the complete antithesis of fast fashion – you’ll be wearing this jacket for decades to come and when you’re finally through with it, you can pass it onto the next generation.
