Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Moto Boots in Weatherproof Suede

Impressively rugged, functional and stylish Taylor Stitch moto boots.

If you thought your closet was positively too full of gear from Taylor Stitch … well, think again. And if at the same time you’ve been looking for the perfect pair of fall boots, you’re in luck. The Taylor Stitch Moto Boots are here to save your day — and your fall and winter wardrobe — from certain peril in snowy and slushy weather. Now, you’ve read about these stylish moto boots in my guide to wearing black jeans, and they’re back again for good reason today. The Taylor Stitch Moto Boots carry on an impressive lineage of top-notch performance and effortless style from everyone’s favorite San Fran-based brand, and that’s all the more reason to snag your pair now. That is to say, everything that you love about Taylor Stitch‘s chambray shirts, handsome sweaters & rugged outerwear gets distilled into one of the best pairs of men’s boots for fall and winter. What makes the Taylor Stitch Moto Boots so essential, even in spite of a slightly higher price tag ($348, for those curious)? The difference, as ever, remains in the details — from the rich 4oz. snuff suede to the impressive Goodyear welt construction., made to be resoled when you need it the  most. And of course, these are highly unique in that they just so happen to be a truly weatherproof pair of suede boots, something not many other brands can say. Does that make ’em some of the best men’s boots? Yes, indeed it does — but there’s a whole lot more where that came from.

A tough sole and stellar design details put these Taylor Stitch boots a cut above the rest.

Notably, these rugged suede boots can stand up to plenty of wear in nasty weather thanks to that durable weatherproof suede and Goodyear construction — they’re complemented by a tough Vibram outsole, to boot (pun very much intended). Make no mistake, these aren’t a pair of boots to be messed with, and that goes for whether you wear them with your favorite black jeans and a henley, or team them with slim navy trousers and a classic Oxford shirt after a snowy work day commute. Throw in waxed cotton laces for a bit of tailored appeal, then add in the fact that antique brass hardware finishes off the Taylor Stitch Moto Boots, and you’ve got a truly unbeatable pair of the best fall and winter boots — that’s not just talk. Perhaps the best part about these? They’ll work with the rest of your well-stocked Taylor Stitch wardrobe … so, what more can you ask for? Not a whole lot.

The Friday Read: David Beckham, American Apparel and New Mott & Bow Denim

Editor’s note: Expect these posts once a week on Fridays — consider this a jumpstart on reading for your weekend downtime. Expect a mix of style and non-style content. For more entries, click here

I’m closing out this week on The Style Guide (and heading into next week) thinking ever so slightly of the impending arrival of spring. Doesn’t it seem like we were just talking wool blazers and fall sweaters? It’s pretty wild how the style cycle turns — even now, spring arrivals are hitting shelves (to that end, look for a spring style wish list next week). What top picks do you have your eye on for the coming season? Those new purchases seem to go hand-in-hand will looking toward spring travel, too. Rest assured that future posts will definitely cover off on those types of topics. For now, it’s the close of NYC Beer Week here in the city — somewhat unsurprisingly, there’s almost been too many great events to choose from around New York! So that’s definitely something I’m looking forward to this weekend. And as you look ahead to (maybe) cracking open a cold one yourself,  I’d recommend you kick back and catch up on what you should be shopping and reading this weekend.

  • David Beckham’s work with British brand Kent & Curwen just took another turn — get to know the label’s new creative director here, and get excited for the forthcoming, likely excellent, product.
  • This is from last week, but still worth a share — the fine team at Get Kempt developed what it’s calling the Sartorial Bill of Rights.
  • This story seems to be everywhere (or it certainly has been everywhere) in different forms in the past few years — HighSnobiety looks at the rise and fall of American Apparel.
  • Long Read of the Week: I just came across this feature as I was writing this post, and was sufficiently sidetracked. It might be from last fall, but Valet took an excellent look into “Ralph Lauren University,” interviewing several of the top-notch designers and creative folks who also worked for Ralph Lauren before launching into successful careers in their own right. It’s fascinating and includes plenty of big names, from John Varvatos to Todd Snyder!
  • Lastly — looking to get away out West, and in need of some great gear?
