Since the turn of the millennium, what’s widely known as “fast fashion” has exploded in popularity, giving way to a slew of stylish garments and clothing staples that are available at incredibly accessible prices. And, while fashion-forward and often comfortable, these items objectively lack the durability, longevity, and overall quality possessed by American-made garments from half-a-century-ago. Wanting to return to this era of built-to-last clothing, Flint and Tinder has delivered a contemporary interpretation of a classic workwear shirt-jacket with the Bedford Camp Shirt.
Cut, sewn, and finished entirely in Los Angeles, the Bedford Camp Shirt is crafted from soft-washed 8oz Bedford cotton cloth — a lightweight yet decidedly rugged construction that’s similar to Corduroy but is softer to the touch and feels thoroughly broken in right off of the rack. The overshirt’s imprinted, Western-inspired 12-sided star metal snap buttons, double-layer collar, and chest patch pocket provide additional durability while simultaneously injecting a bit of old-school style. There’s also an additional array of interior and exterior pockets for small to medium-sized items and a back pleat that allows for an unrestricted range of movement. This hardwearing and timeless item can also be worn as an outer shell, a mid-layer, or as a regular button-up, making it immensely versatile. Available now in Black or Hickory color options, the Flint and Tinder Bedford Camp Shirt is priced at $168.
