Flint and Tinder: Premium Underwear for Men, Made in the USA

created at: 04/30/2012

Flint and Tinder is a new “men’s basics” project by Jake, who after researching, found that only one of fifty brands making men’s underwear in the USA, and that brand is “poor quality, not hugely comfortable and falls apart in the dryer over time.”

So, Jake created Flint and TInder, dedicated to the principles of 

1. Highest quality ingredients for SUPERIOR COMFORT and DURABILITY

2. 100% Made in America – SUPPORTS USA ECONOMY

3. Fairly priced

The best part? Jake is working with a factory who, due to the economic struggles of the last few years, have been working at reduced capacity. The 20,000 sq. ft. factory is solar-powered, and is set up to make t-shirts for some of the country’s most premium brands. The cotton is grown in California, and spun “extra tight and smooth” at the factory. Plus “Beyond this opening order, for every 1000 pair we sell per month, [one] full-time job is literally added back to the assembly line. Amazing, right?”

You can find out all about Flint and Tinder at their Kickstarter page, where they’ve already quadrupled their $30,000 startup goal. And, be sure to watch this overview video:
