Every year at about this time, there’s a rumbling you can hear in the distance. It’s the sound of the Taylor Stitch Workshop consistently churning out some of the best deals on the best men’s style essentials, and at competitive prices compared to any brand on the market. And today, the Tuesday Steal in question really does hit the mark quite nicely: It’s the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket in Whiskey Steerhide, a truly exceptional, handsome and well-crafted jacket that’s worth pre-funding right now through the aforementioned Taylor Stitch Workshop. For those not familiar with San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch, the brand has more than a decade’s worth of experience perfecting everything from men’s shirting to chinos, and over the years, that expertise has extended into the world of some of the coolest outerwear on the planet. Its field jackets and flannel shirts are stellar in their own right, but the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket is a consistent favorite that never ceases to amaze. There’s lots to love in terms of pre-funding, too: You’re getting your new favorite leather jacket for 20 percent off when you pre-fund it, and although you’ll have to wait until January for it to ship out, it’s about as worth it as it gets.
This handsome and timeless jacket has plenty going for it, including the fact that it’s handmade in San Fran by the leather jacket experts at Golden Bear. It’s a match made in heaven, one that puts craftsmanship on full display. The Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket is made with 3.5oz. full-grain steerhide leather that should prove supple yet durable. It should also feel somewhat lighter than a thicker leather jacket from a brand like Schott (although Schott is certainly worthwhile as you search for the best leather jacket on the market!). It’s fully lined and features Thinsulate insulation, all the better for matching the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket up with a thermal henley or a lightweight sweater to avoid too much bulk. Any which way you look at it, the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket, right down to the antique brass zippers and the articulated shoulders for ease of movement, is the perfect merger of form and function. It’s an iconic take on the moto jacket that you’ll have for years and years to come, which only makes it a better deal right now through the well-stocked Taylor Stitch Workshop.
