The flight jacket is an iconic menswear piece but too many modern interpretations make you look like a Top Gun extra. Thankfully, Flint and Tinder has the move. Their crack at the style staple — which just went on sale right here — takes cues from the storied U.S. Air Force jacket while removing any excess bulk and faux accessories for a streamlined final product that channels Steve McQueen in The Great Escape.

Cut and sewn in the USA, it's made from lightweight cotton fabric woven with high-twist yarn for maximum breathability and features everything from a zip chest pocket for extra storage to a hidden interior phone pocket for quick access. It's finished with luxe details like reinforced stitching around the zipper for added durability and adjustable cuffs with snap closures.
