Have you been searching high and low for men’s style essentials from one go-to brand? A company that makes things easy and stocks a wide range of basics that … aren’t quite so basic? A brand like Taylor Stitch, naturally? You’re in luck, because everyone’s favorite San Francisco-based menswear purveyor is now stocking gear like the Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt in a simple, aptly named collection called Taylor Stitch Essentials — consider your winter shopping sorted, to say the least. The Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt is part of a well-curated collection of pieces that are going to work in any season and virtually any style situation, exactly what one would expect from the fine folks at Taylor Stitch. That means you can pair it with other like-minded pieces from the brand, like slim tan chinos or inky selvage denim — all the while, the Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt is going to break in handsomely thanks to that indigo texture.
Garment-washed cotton brings out the rich texture and stylish nature of this shirt, which should fit perfectly and wear nicely right out of the box. That’s because Taylor Stitch has its shirting dialed in to fit most (if not all) guys perfectly — the use of exact chest measurements (I.E. A size 40 chest equates to a medium) takes care of that. The Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt also features a pleasingly rounded button-down collar and a visually interesting front chest pocket. Those two touches put this shirt squarely in casual territory, yet it’s able to be worn easily with something like a charcoal herringbone blazer and burgundy corduroys at the office. The fit and fabric of the Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt also lends itself to being worn as laidback as possible — think expertly faded denim and rugged leather chukka boots, sleeves rolled and stylish leather watch on your wrist. The refreshing thing about the Indigo Waffle Jack Shirt is that it’s going to work as hard as you do — it won’t fall apart like a cheaply made shirt from a fast fashion retailer. If you ask me, that’s all you need to consider when shopping for your new favorite winter shirt.
