Men’s underwear and casual apparel brand Flint & Tinder sources all of its products from the U.S. — even novelty items like soap. This spring, the company will take its homegrown ethos a step further and open its own manufacturing facility in downtown Manhattan, with a financial boost from the New York State Regional Economic Development Council.
The state agency awarded Flint & Tinder a $100,000 grant last week, part of $715.9 million in total funds earmarked for projects statewide. The annual grants program is aimed at fueling economic growth via community-based, performance-driven enterprises. Flint & Tinder was one of 824 local projects funded this year.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
