: stuff used to be made to last. Things have long shifted, however, in favor of a manufacturing business model known as “planned obsolescence.” From toasters to T-shirts, today’s products are designed to fall apart—all the better to get you to reach into your wallet once more, of course. Flint and Tinder is one of growing number of companies seeking to disrupt that trend.

To create a unisex zip-up hoodie made entirely in the United States (yarn and hardware included) and built for a lifetime.
