Flint and Tinder: Premium Men's Underwear - Page 2

post #16 of 31
I have a pair of the trunk briefs, which I got for my kickstarter contribution. I love it. Favorite underwear, hands down. I will be ordering more.

Trunk briefs and T-shirt arrived.

 

I'm 5'8" and the T is super-long (ordered a medium). Definitely a tuck-only shirt. It also has classic-fit blousing above the waist. Fits comfortably in the chest (40) and shoulders, but very baggy from there down; knew I should have ordered a small. Oh well, maybe it will shrink up some after a wash; certainly not a tailored/fitted t-shirt for more casual wear. Fabric has the perfect weight and softness for a white undershirt. Will have to snap a pic tomorrow of fit.

 

Underwear ordered a medium, too. I wear a 32 waist pant and have thick thighs. These things fit perfectly. The material definitely has a better weight and feel than the Wal-Mart underwear I'm used to. My underwear typically gets ratty after a few washes, and I was looking for a better quality alternative. Will see how these hold up. The cotton breathes wonderfully; good for fertility I suppose.

How do these compare to JP and sunspel?

They are more comfortable then my Sunspel boxers.
But Boxers fit a bit loose so I can't really compare them.

Well this is disappointing. Looks like Flint and Tinder eliminated gray from their product line. I was patiently awaiting a restock of gray briefs, which I had been told would happen in early December, but not so anymore. Oh well. Maybe I'll try a pair of blue or white.

Just ordered two briefs to try. If I like them as much as I hope I will, I'll revamp my entire undies drawer... whenever they bring gray back.

Thought I'd post a bit about my Flint & Tinder experience. I purchased two of their briefs back in December. The fabric and construction are definitely superb. When I first put them on, they are amazingly comfortable. However, (going to be blunt here), they wedge worse than my Hanes briefs, for whatever reason. So that's obviously no good, and has prevented me from buying more. At this point, I'm happier with my Hanes briefs, of which I can get 5 for the for the price of 1 from F&T. That said, I'd still like to try F&T boxers and trunks, but they can't seem to be able to keep a decent stock of colors and sizes.

My experience is only with the trunks, and I love them. I'm waiting for my Fruit of the Loom boxer briefs to finally degrade to the point where I can justify making another large underwear purchase. The Fruit of the Looms aren't bad at all; I just find the F & T more comfortable. Luxurious, even. It's the quality of the cotton and that wonderful band.

By the way, I used to wear Calvin Klein boxer briefs until I decided that they weren't sufficiently better (if at all) than the Fruit of the Looms to justify the significant price jump. I feel the opposite regarding F&T.

I got a pair of trunks a few weeks ago. Love the idea and design but the fit is a bit off for me. Maybe my ass is tall, but I find myself exposing a bit more of my "back" than I'd like. Anyone else have a similar experience? Maybe I should give 'em another try but size up?

I'm waiting for them to change the color of the waistband. white was a dumb idea IMO.

I kinda like the white waistband. As I recall, the initial iterations (perhaps only pre-production samples) also had white elastic around the leg openings and the fly, which I liked even more.

Just got an email about Flint & Tinder sweatshirts! They're doing another Kickstarter and $89 secures a pre-order. Very tempted to pledge...
