Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Apres Pants – The Best Fall Weekend Pants for Men

The Après Pant in Army Waffle - Classic Men's Clothing | TS…

The search for what you might call the best pants for men, or rather, the best fall weekend pants for men, is a tricky one, especially in these times. You need a pair of men’s pants that are casual enough to kick back on the couch with a coffee in hand and records on, yet you also need a pair with enough polish to step outside your house. Enter the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants, a perfect happy medium between the two, which just so happen to be here well in advance of fall weather in earnest. I’m particularly a fan of the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants in Olive Waffle, which toe the line between joggers and chinos in terms of style and comfort. They’re not quite office-ready, but if you do happen to work in a casual office, I’d say you can rock ’em there, too. But the rest of the time? Yes indeed, the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants really just might be the best fall weekend pants for men, and that’s not just hyperbole.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a brand like Taylor Stitch, based out of San Francisco and a longtime favorite of the blog, is able to deliver on some of the best pants for men, period. After all, the brand was founded on perfecting a buttondown shirt, but they’ve long since expanded into stylish men’s chinos, denim and now, the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants. It all starts with the fabric and build of these pants, which also represents that hard-to-find happy medium for comfort and style.

The Après Pant in Indigo Waffle - Classic Men's Clothing…

It’s a waffle weave 8.5oz. organic cotton fabric that helps the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants feel so comfortable yet polished: They’re lighter than the brand’s chinos and denim, but not too breezy or lightweight. Slash front pockets keep these more streamlined, as do the back button patch pockets, not unlike ones you’d find on Taylor Stitch pants. They’re tapered to an elastic cuff, hence the hybrid look and feel, so these would wear especially well with high-top or low-top sneakers, but not necessarily leather boots.

Rock the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants all fall

Cozy, casual comfort is within reach

The Taylor Stitch Apres Pants also feature a crucial and comfortable elastic waist, but they’re still cool and crisp enough to wear with everything from a Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee to a Taylor Stitch chambray shirt (seriously). They’re perhaps best worn on fall days at home or road trips, blending mobility and style all along the way. Take your pick from five versatile colors, including Indigo and Charcoal, then be prepared to work them into your fall wardrobe even more often than you thought possible. Yes indeed, the Taylor Stitch Apres Pants are going to quickly become your new go-to fall pants.

See Now, Buy Now: Add the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt to Your Fall Wardrobe

The Yosemite Shirt in Forest - Classic Men's Clothing | TS…

If you ask me, it’s never too early to add one of the best shirts for men to your fall wardrobe, even if we’ve just newly crossed over into September. No sir, there’s not quite a time like the present to get the much-loved, stone-cold classic Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt, especially in an array of new colors, so you best get on it. It’s all well and good that Taylor Stitch can reliably make plenty of all-season staples, like a classic men’s T-shirt, but fall weather really will be here before you know it, and that leaves you with just one choice in today’s See Now, Buy Now entry: The specific color of the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt. I’ve talked plenty over the years about the importance of finding the right layers for fall, and beyond that, figuring out how to wear your new favorite fall shirt. Before we can get to that point, you’ve got to take the plunge on your own and snag the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt for yourself. I’ve got two myself, and my Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt review is, quite simply, five stars.

Get the perfect fall shirt now

Taylor Stitch is the right way to go

It all starts with the right fabric and the right construction, a hallmark of plenty Taylor Stitch style essentials over the years from the San Francisco-based brand. That versatility and strong design is what makes the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt such a fan favorite (it’s sold out numerous times over the years). I mentioned one of the toughest choices you might make today comes down to the color of the particular Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt you want to rock this fall, so it’s great news they seem to have come up with plenty of stock as we start September properly. What else makes this shirt a new fall must-buy? As always, I’m glad you asked.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt

The Yosemite Shirt in Forest - Classic Men's Clothing | TS…

The real standout with any version of the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt has got to be the perfectly executed fabric, which is a soft-yet-substantial organic cotton chamois. It’s both sustainable and stylish, for starters, and wears nicely atop a Taylor Stitch T-shirt (it’s not scratchy or stuffy) as well as it wears atop a rugged thermal henley or even a Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt. It’s a true hybrid shirt in that regard, the kind that’s going to function more than handily on a fall morning hike or cold-weather camping trip.

That’s the beauty of shopping Taylor Stitch: You’re getting gear that you can count on, and gear that serves a purpose, time and time again. Flap chest pockets make this more like an overshirt, but you can reliably roll up the sleeves of the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt as you would a normal flannel shirt. I’m partial to the deep and rich Forest color, which would just so happen to pop nicely against tan Taylor Stitch chinos or the brand’s selvedge denim (and I hope you’ve got a pair of both in your wardrobe). Either way, the rugged, classic and quick-selling Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt is as solid an option you’ll find as fall rolls your way in earnest. Stay stylish, folks!

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket – The Best Transitional Jacket for Men

The Bomber Jacket in Charcoal Jungle Cloth | Taylor Stitch…

A guy has to be prepared for plenty of possible style situations, including those instances moving from summer to fall where temperatures change unexpectedly, inclement weather hits, and rugged outerwear is the only way to go. Enter one of the best transitional jackets for men, a durable and hard-wearing number that can only be found at Taylor Stitch. Perhaps you’ve become acquainted over the years, like me, with the dependable and incredibly well-made rotation of outerwear at Taylor Stitch. They cover off on plenty of different bases, be it waxed trucker jackets, indigo denim jackets or now, this organic cotton bomber jacket practically made for layering as we move through September (more on the use of “jungle cloth” cotton shortly).

The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket is simply named, but packs a serious punch as far as style points are concerned. That’s not to mention the sort of functionality you get with a tough jacket made to take on chilly days aplenty. In addition to the handy two-way zipper, it also features storm flaps with custom hardware YKK snaps for extra coverage when it gets a bit too blustery out there. As ever, it seems like Taylor Stitch has thought of everything with the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket , and that’s because the San Francisco-based brand has done just that.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket

The Bomber Jacket in Charcoal Jungle Cloth | Taylor Stitch…

It’s one of the best men’s bomber jackets because it’s a highly unique take on the style, done the way only Taylor Stitch can make a finely crafted men’s jacket. Small touches like the vintage San Francisco map print pocketing, a true Taylor Stitch detail that only the brand can dream up, showcase that care and attention to detail quite nicely. And if you’ve been wondering “What is jungle cloth?” well, here’s a quick primer. It’s a tightly woven cotton, akin to corduroy, and the custom hardware used by Taylor Stitch pops quite nicely here against this breathable-yet-long-lasting 12oz. cotton weave.

It’s a rugged take on the bomber jacket, and one that any lover of versatile style can appreciate (note the wear-with-anything charcoal color, for starters). The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket should layer up with ease atop a Taylor Stitch henley, but it can also be paired with, naturally, a classic Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt as you head back to the office. It’s also going to look equally stellar with timeless Taylor Stitch chinos or the brand’s rugged selvedge denim. If you want one of the best transitional jackets for men, then this bomber jacket should be your go-to move, starting right now.

The Tuesday Steal: Taylor Stitch Is Making the Best Classic Men’s T-Shirt on the Market

The Cotton Hemp Tee in Natural - Classic Men's Clothing…

From the best men’s leather jacket to the best classic T-shirt for men, is there anything Taylor Stitch can’t do? Well, if you read the blog, I’d wager you know that, well, there really isn’t all that much that the lauded San Francisco retailer can’t get right. I’ve long been a fan of Taylor Stitch, as you very well know if you’ve checked out the blog this summer (or in the years prior to that!), but it’s always worth revisiting what a favorite brand does as the years progress. In the case of Taylor Stitch, that means they continue to make essential classics, like the Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee, to go along with the consistently stellar Taylor Stitch Workshop. It’s a great place to get, say, the coolest leather jacket on the market, but we’re here today to talk about something a little more basic.

Now, I don’t mean basic in a bad way, because this Taylor Stitch T-shirt is about as well-made as it gets when it comes to summer knitwear (another consistent theme on the blog as of late). The specs on the Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee are what really separate it from the pack, which is why it’s worth spending a bit more ($36 at Taylor Stitch) compared to your run-of-the-mill pack of T-shirts at your local chain store (trust me on this!). If you’re a fan of Taylor Stitch Oxford shirts or outerwear, know that every bit as much quality has gone into this sustainable T-shirt as those staple, big-ticket pieces.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee

The Cotton Hemp Tee in Natural - Classic Men's Clothing…

This might seem like an overly simple T-shirt on the surface, but rest assured that it’s anything but that. The blend of 4oz. organic cotton (70 percent) and hemp (30 percent) should prove breezy and comfortable, and of course, highly sustainable. When it comes to even the most subtle style moves, Taylor Stitch has thought of every detail, right down to the fact that the Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee is also garment-washed for a soft feel and every more breathability. That sort of breathability is key if you want to continue wearing, say, Taylor Stitch jeans with your tee on hot summer days.

And the Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee also fits quite well: It’s neither too tight nor too baggy, it’s just right (note that the brand goes by chest sizing – so 38, 40, 42 and so on) for its sizing. It results in a timeless fit that should work well for most guys out there. The Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee is certainly wearable on its own, beneath a Taylor Stitch overshirt or underneath a Taylor Stitch leather jacket. It’s the type of T-shirt you’ve got to try out to believe its quality, and then once you’ve done that, you’ll want to stock your wardrobe with nothing but the Taylor Stitch Natural Cotton Hemp Tee. If you do give it a shot, let me know in the comments. Happy shopping!
