Flint and Tinder is changing the way clothes are manufactured starting with jeans made to order. This is Made in USA done smarter. For $98 you can order a custom made pair of jeans, while boosting the economy and supporting manufacturing here at home. Named the most successful crowd-funded fashion brand to-date, Flint and Tinder launched in late 2012 with one simple goal: to bring back American manufacturing. Starting modestly by outfitting an American t-shirt factory to produce premium men’s underwear, Flint and Tinder today now offers products spanning the men’s apparel category, with recent new product expansions including custom denim for men and boy-inspired underwear for women. Founder Jake Bronstein remains committed to re-defining what the “Made In America” tag represents by offering better-made goods and services.
A few facts:
- For every 1,000 pair of underwear sold per month, at least one sustainable job is added within the Flint and Tinder supply chain
- The Flint and Tinder 10 Year Hoodie was the first Kickstarter-funded project to raise more than $1MM
- Flint and Tinder is currently manufactured in 11 U.S. factories, including New York state
- Within the first year of shipping products (Sept 2012 – Sept 2013), Flint and Tinder employed 11 sewing factories, 4 knitting mills, 3 warehouses and 2 cutting rooms

For a denim lover like myself, I couldn’t be more excited about a custom made pair of jeans. So let’s all do our part and support this movement to bring “American Made” back to where it belongs.
