You don’t have to be a traumatized dad fighting a fungus-based zombie apocalypse to wear this jacket.
One thing that sets Primer apart from the more general “men’s fashion” media is our focus on rugged, affordable style that lasts and an enduring aesthetic. We don’t follow suit in showcasing of-the-moment celebrities parading around in attention-grabbing outfits just to get clicks. So whenever we see a movie or TV show with some realistic style inspiration, we love to know how to recreate it.
After watching the first episode of “The Last of Us” this week, I couldn’t help but love not only the most intense first 15 minutes of a TV show in recent memory, but Pedro Pascal’s character’s rugged post. Also love the post-apocalyptic genre. So imagine my excitement when I realized the jacket she was wearing was none other than our all-time favorite — the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Wax Trucker Jacket.
The history of the trucker jacket style is rooted in American workwear, and this jacket is no exception. Manufactured with waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz. Sailcloth, it’s built to last and only gets better with age as it wears and develops a patina, like a leather jacket. Each time you wear it, the fabric will soften to crease and fold, creating your own unique wear pattern. This is a great alternative to the leather jacket look if you don’t want to spend the $400+ required for a good jacket. Not only this, but it is so versatile that it can be worn with both casual and smart casual outfits.
Plus, it’s made in America by one of our best clothing brands for men, with fabric coming in from New Jersey and the final product being cut, sewn, and finished in Los Angeles. It is waxed on both sides for added warmth and insulation and can even be re-waxed for a lifetime of water-resistance. It features a similar aesthetic to James Bond’s waxed canvas jacket by Rogue Zone, with a notable style difference being the button flap pocket of flint and tinder on the chest.
Unlike some other waxed trucker jackets available in the market, this one is soft right from the start. This is thanks to a fully lined body and sleeves with a soft blanket lining that feels amazing against the skin. And for the price, you can’t beat the quality, build, and versatility.
If you’re looking for a tough, affordable jacket that will last you for years to come, the Flint & Tinder Flannel-Lined Wax Trucker Jacket is an excellent choice. And unlike many of the costumes in Hollywood franchises, you won’t look like you’re cosplaying as your favorite video-game-turned-hit-TV-show character.
