The process of developing a wardrobe filled with menswear essentials should be fun, you should learn something along the way and yes, it also involves a bit of foresight. So, although we’re still squarely in February right now, you should certainly be thinking about stocking up with one of the best men’s jackets for spring, when things get a bit warmer out.
And the ideal time to do that is, in fact, right now — and perhaps the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket could be your next prime menswear move. Just like the classically rugged yet modern Taylor Stitch Field Jacket, this durable waxed cotton canvas jacket takes a timeless style and updates it seamlessly for today’s man on the go (that’s you!).
It’s the kind of jacket you can wear just about every day, especially if your day-to-day wardrobe leans a little more casually rugged. That’s because the new Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket plays off of the classic Harrington jacket, a style with a stand-up collar and a raglan-sleeve design popularized by style icons like Steve McQueen and first worn across the pond on blustery British days (check out my Fatherly guide to the best Harrington jackets for more insight!). And crucially, the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket has all of those same bells and whistles, plus a few touches well-suited for this year (and beyond).
Notably, the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket now features a two-way YKK zipper for a more customizable fit: Use the zipper to add more mobility and ease of movement around your waistline, as Mr. McQueen might have done when riding a motorbike. You’ll find the tough yet flexible waxed canvas moves well and stands up to temperate spring or even late winter breezes and rain, while the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket is also lined in organic cotton twill.
And for ease of movement when layering up over Taylor Stitch shirts, the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket features sleeves lined with recycled nylon (so your sleeves don’t catch). Perhaps the coolest part of the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket? That’d be the Blackwatch plaid color, a design found in the U.K. and one that looks seriously sleek with just about any other color in your wardrobe. Think well ahead right now, secure your new favorite piece of spring outerwear with the Taylor Stitch Flint Jacket — it’s as good as it gets for bolstering your wardrobe.
