Bulletproof aramid fiber meets denim—for the perfect pair of jeans you’ll still be wearing years down the road

Flint and Tinder’s Defender Jeans are the latest, greatest, and most rugged jeans forged in America. They’re handmade in Los Angeles from top shelf Japanese selvage denim that combines the comfort of cotton with the durability of aramid fibers, the same reinforcing fiber used in bulletproof vests and combat helmets. Sick of catastrophic blowouts taking their favorite jeans out of rotation again and again, the crew at Flint and Tinder searched high and low for a denim that can take the heat of years of hard-wearin’ adventure and keep right on truckin’. They found it at old-school Japanese denim manufacturer Kaihara, in a denim that combines the handsome good looks of Tom Selleck with the mythic strength of Paul Bunyon. In short, these jeans kick a lotta ass and, thanks to Flint and Tinder’s dialed in fits, look damn good doin’ it.
