Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket in Organic ’68 Selvage

A rugged, timeless denim jacket from my good friends at Taylor Stitch.

Another day, another Style Pick of the Week, and another spotlight shone on our friends at Taylor Stitch, a favorite of The Style Guide for years. They’re an especially relevant favorite today, too — it all comes down to the rugged style of the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket. And this isn’t just any Long Haul Jacket, mind you — the brand’s much-loved take on the classic trucker jacket gets a serious upgrade by way of rugged, organic cotton in a timeless silhouette. The difference has always been in the details when it comes to everyone’s favorite menswear brand, and this edition of the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket is no different.

Now, it might seem counterintuitive to be talking about a rugged denim jacket when temperatures are still asburdly hot elsehwere across the country — but it’ll cool off eventually, and when it does, the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket will be right there when you need it. It’s part of the excellent, nearly-always-in-stock Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, a murderer’s row of menswear essentials like chambray shirts, crisp Oxford shirts, and yes … the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket.

A rugged denim trucker jacket made the right way by Taylor Stitch.

But what separates this particular jacket from a crowded field of seemingly similar denim jackets? Allow me. Namely, the difference starts again with the construction and fabrication of this jacket, making it a true must-buy. It’s made for the first time ever with 100 percent organic cotton from ISKO Mills, something Taylor Stitch called a “logistical challenge” … but a gamble that appears to have paid off in spades. Heck, the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket even features a custom green selvage ID, a unique touch that true denimheads will appreciate.

Throw in the fact that it’s finished off with YKK copper doughnut buttons and rivets for an extremely sturdy wearing experience, and you’ve got a simply beautiful denim jacket to layer from early fall (eventually) and on into winter. Seriously, try out the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket with a grey henley and olive chinos — throw on classic suede chukkas, then grab an Old Fashioned. Still think a denim jacket is only made for casual wearing occasions? Use it as a replacement for your navy blazer when worn with tan chinos and an Oxford shirt. Lest we forget, the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket also functions as a handy travel jacket given the front handwarmer and button chest pockets. Again, you’ll be glad you bought this classic denim jacket at the right time (now!) before you really need it this fall.
