If, for some horrifying reason, you could only swaddle yourself in one piece of outerwear this fall [shudders internally], the Flint and Tinder waxed trucker jacket would be a solid bet. Not only is it Huckberry’s all-time best-selling jacket, it’s Huckberry’s all-time best-selling garment. (Oh, and it just so happens to be a regular around this here website). And for an e-comm operation that slings everything from burly footwear to tasteful home goods to hardcore outdoors-y gear, that’s saying a lot. We’re pretty sure there isn’t an awards ceremony for jackets, but if there was, this one’s acceptance speech would probably go something like this:
“Wow, thank you. It’s really such an honor to be up on this stage. First and foremost, I couldn’t have done this without my seven-ounce waxed cotton fabric: you’re tough as all hell but surprisingly soft, and still somehow manage to keep me dry. I swear you just get better with age. And to my plush flannel lining—you keep me warm through even the most blisteringly cold days. Oh, and I can’t forget all my pockets: the hand warmer pockets, the duo of chest pockets, the interior media pocket. Without you, I would be just another pretty jacket with a perfectly tailored silhouette. You make me more pragmatic without compromising my fit…” [Music begins to swell, jacket is gently ushered off the stage]
Like we said, we’re fairly certain that this awards ceremony doesn’t exist. But then again, we were pretty damn sure that this jacket would never go on sale, either. And yet here we are. Because for two days only, Huckberry is offering you a cool $50 off their modern-day classic, in both its flannel-lined and wool-lined versions. No need to enter any special code. All you need to do is hurry up and give the Flint and Tinder waxed trucker jacket the recognition it deserves—and prime of place in your closet—before the sold-out music starts to play.
