The hooded sweatshirt has long been one of the most important men’s wardrobe essentials, universally praised for delivering unparalleled comfort and immense versatility. Since the introduction of this timeless staple in the 1930s, the hoodie’s silhouette has remained virtually unchanged, as has its primarily cheap, lightweight cotton or polyester construction. Wanting to deliver a markedly more premium take on the garment without compromising its cut or outward appearance, Flint and Tinder have designed a handsome, ultra-comfortable sweatshirt that’s truly been built-to-last with its new 10 Year Hoodie.
Made entirely in the USA and passing through 20 different American craftsmen across its production, this heritage-quality hoodie is made from a South Carolina-sourced 23oz fleece cotton-poly blend that’s 70% composed of cotton from the Mississippi Delta. Twill-reinforced seams from Philadelphia, heavy-duty zippers from Georgia, and a double-lined hood ensure ample durability and longevity. Cut, sewn, and finished entirely in Los Angeles, the 10 Year Hoodie also sports a number of subtle, though thoroughly top-shelf touches such as custom F&T-branded metal eyelets and drawcord tips. And, in addition to a regular kangaroo pouch, this high-end hoodie also packs a hidden media pocket. With practically every element of this immensely-calculated hoodie having been upgraded, it’s expected to last for substantially longer than regular hooded sweatshirts — so much so, in fact, that F&T stands by this item with a comprehensive decade-long warranty. Offered in Forest, Black, Navy, and Medium Heather Grey, the Flint and Tinder 10 Year Hoodie is available now, with pricing set at $108.
