Jake Bronstein founded Flint and Tinder in 2012 with one simple goal: to bring the manufacturing of apparel—that's built to last—back to America. He has also been a contributor to several men's lifestyle magazines, including DETAILS, Rolling Stone, Men's Fitness, Men's Health and FHM.
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.
