Flint and Tinder Bedford Camp Shirt

The sheer versatility of a good shirt jacket is right there in the name—these killer layers excel as a heavy-duty shirt, lightweight jacket, or even a handsome mid-layer. For this addition to Flint and Tinder’s shirt jacket lineup, they took inspiration from old-school workwear—the type of prized shirts you might’ve grabbed outta your dad’s closet and sworn by ever since. Only with this one, no break-in time is necessary. It wears comfortably on day one thanks to soft, washed Bedford Cloth fabric. It’s a cousin to corduroy that’s just as durable, but with a lightweight texture more like broken-in canvas, and with no extra bulk. Add details inspired by vintage shirts, like imprinted metal snaps and a handy internal pocket—and you’ve got a sharp-looking favorite that can serve you just about any time, any place.
