Flint and Tinder Produces Locally Made Men's Underwear

The ethical Flint and Tinder menswear undergarment line was started by New Yorker Jake Bronstein. Bronstein took note of a pervasive lack of local underwear production in the U.S., and decided to respond to the concerning phenomenon by way of his own clothing label. The majority of intimates sold in North America are made in countries like China, Thailand and Indonesia, precluding the growth of native manufacture.

Bronstein has partnered with a 20,000-square-foot solar-powered American factory. The brand wishes to not only produce domestic collections, but to also produce them with a mind for high-quality fashion. This emphasis brought about the use of lavish mediums like Supima cotton, now molded into an array of tasteful styles.

In addition to releasing some chic designs, this American-oriented fabrication venture aims to spur employment. Flint and Tinder maintains that every 1000th pair of underwear sold will be matched with a full-time job, providing benefits to those in need.
