About Flint and Tinder

Flint and Tinder launched in late 2012 to create premium men's underwear in a U.S. factory and, along the way, spark a revolution in American manufacturing. Bronstein started out simply by finding a family-run U.S. T-shirt factory to make Flint and Tinder's men's underwear and has grown its product line into a lifestyle brand, with an expanded product offering of men's and women's apparel and Made-in-USA goods and wares from partnering brands around the country.
