UPDATE: Now through 3/7/21, Waxed Trucker Jackets are 20% off.
As an American menswear staple, the waxed trucker jacket is known for its timelessness, weather-resistance, and toughness. The Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is made in the USA and is a top seller for the brand. The Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket bends to the wearer’s unique movements thanks to its weather-resistant Martexin sailcloth, which like selvage denim or finely tanned leather, will only get better with age. The consistent movement of the wearer when tying their shoes, riding a bike, hoisting a beer, or just living life will eventually cause the fabric to wear to a pattern unique to the wearer alone. This characteristic means the Flint and Tinder jacket actually becomes better with age. It’s worth noting, though, that it fits and feels great right out of the box as well. There is no “breaking in” required.
Long before technical fabrics came onto the apparel scene, sailors would grease up their gear with linseed and fish oils as a practical way to stay dry. Recognizing the obvious drawbacks of this practice, classic outerwear brands began experimenting with paraffin-impregnated fabrics back in the early 20th century. Flint and Tinder took a page from that early innovation by cutting their jackets from the aforementioned waxed, weather-resistant Martexin sailcloth in a 7oz. weight. The Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is finished off with F and T antique metal buttons with the brand’s signature bullseye on the back.
