The Tuesday Steal: The Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt Is The Best On-Sale Shirt to Shop Now

The Ledge Shirt in Deep Sea Plaid | Men's Shirts | TS

Is there a better place to go to get more bang for your buck on menswear essentials than the always-well-stocked Taylor Stitch Workshop? It seems that rarely a day goes by, or a week, when the Taylor Stitch Workshop isn’t stocked with on-sale choices on the best men’s gear. Of course, stocked is a bit misleading, as the famed San Francisco brand still has to go about producing its menswear staples after each piece (like the rugged and ready-for-anything Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt) is funded by loyal customers. But that being said, it’s worth the wait, and that’s an understatement when it comes to the Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt, the best on-sale men’s shirt to shop right now.

Over the years, Taylor Stitch has consistently come up with ways to top itself, which really is saying something when you consider the fact that Taylor Stitch reviews (including some by yours truly!) have raved about the brand — and rightfully so. The Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt distills everything you love about the rugged-yet-versatile brand into one go-anywhere shirt that’s here just in time for a fitting new wardrobe refresh.

What exactly goes into the stellar and expertly crafted Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt? Only a little bit of everything, as with any standout Taylor Stitch release. The rich 100 percent organic cotton, in a layering-friendly 7oz. weight, is washed for a soft feel right out of the box, the kind that’s only going to get softer the more you wear it. Of course, you’ll want to wear the Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt all the time, be it atop a Taylor Stitch henley or a Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee, or even another stylish purchase from the Taylor Stitch Workshop.

The Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt can act as both a stylish standalone shirt or a mid-layer atop a thermal shirt and beneath a rugged waxed trucker jacket, for instance. If the weather is breezy rather than frigid, the Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt even acts as a reliable shirt jacket-style layer, and it’s a classic one, at that: The Deep Sea Plaid colorway is as good as it gets. It’ll wear nicely with dark indigo jeans or classic Taylor Stitch chinos, and that’s the type of versatility that can’t be beat these days. Wear it as a workshirt, wear it as a comfortable layer for weekend lounging, or wear it underneath a winter blazer – just make sure the Taylor Stitch Ledge Shirt is in your rotation while it’s still in the Workshop at Taylor Stitch.

And it nearly goes without saying, but the Taylor Stitch Wharf Sweater‘s handsome Burgundy colorway is the stuff winter style dreams are made of. That color in particular pairs well with indigo denim or tan corduroy pants in equal measure, so make sure your menswear rotation is well-stocked.

And the Taylor Stitch Wharf Sweater is, crucially, available for purchase right now, so rejoice in the fact that you can get it delivered to your door with free shipping and free returns.

The Double Knit Sweater in Charcoal | Taylor Stitch

There are certain times this fall (and this holiday season) when you’re going to want to go more casual — lounging around on a weekend, catching up on afternoon football — and certain times when you’re going to want to step things up a notch. This is where one of the best men’s sweaters, a sweater you truly can wear anywhere at all, comes into play. It’s the simply named, highly effective and always stylish Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater, made with an innovative fabric blend built to go the distance. It’s here, crucially, just in time for all those instances when you need a layer you can rock with anything, and for when you need a layer that can sometimes pull double duty (as in, wear this Taylor Stitch sweater to Thanksgiving dinner, then wear it the next day with some Taylor Stitch sweats for digital Black Friday shopping).

Sound too good to be true? Well, we’re talking about Taylor Stitch after all, San Francisco-based purveyors of everything from the best fall weekend pants to one of the most rugged flannel shirts on the market. They’ve perfected the art of versatile, slightly rugged and plenty classic menswear, and this double knit sweater (more on the fabric blend in a moment) is certainly no exception to that rule.

The Double Knit Sweater in Forest - Classic Men's Clothing

As crazy as it might seem, the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater really is like no other sweater out there, and it comes down to the care with which the brand has built this investment-level sweater. It retails for $188, but when you consider how it’s made, you’ll understand. You see, Taylor Stitch used a blend of wool and cotton, plus rayon, poly and spandex, to deliver a classic-looking crewneck sweater that’s actually more innovative than you might expect at first glance. The interior uses viscose and polyester for a finish that’s smooth, not scratchy, meaning you could likely wear the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater atop a short-sleeve T-shirt (perhaps the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee) if absolutely needed.

And on the outside, the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater uses a ribbed collar and cuffs to keep the fit trim and clean, plus a blend of wool and cotton for warmth. You can certainly layer this shirt atop one of Taylor Stitch’s shirts for a crisp, office or holiday-party look. But because this is Taylor Stitch here, this subtly stylish sweater won’t look out of place with tailored joggers for casual weekend days aplenty. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater really is one of the most solid sweaters you can snag right now, and in any color (pick from Forest, British Khaki or Charcoal). Happy layering, my friends, and thanks for reading!

The Tuesday Steal: Pre-Fund the Best Leather Jacket At Taylor Stitch Right Now

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.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt – The Most Rugged Shirt For Fall Right Now

There are certain fall style essentials you come across in your search for the best menswear that make so much sense, it’s a wonder you didn’t have a closet packed full of ’em before. Be that the best boots for men, a rugged henley or today’s Style Pick of the Week, when you know, you really know. And if you’ve been a fan of San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch for as long as I have, then you assuredly know the brand is practically made to deliver cold-weather gear that’s so spot-on, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the best brands for men on the market. That leads us to the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt, just the latest and greatest addition to a truly action-packed line of Taylor Stitch shirting that’s up for grabs right now. If you’ve been waiting to buy one of the best flannel shirts for fall, for instance, now is the time, and it’s simply got to be the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt. This year’s edition is everything you’d expect from the long-running brand, which hasn’t taken its foot off the gas in about a decade when it comes to making menswear essentials across the board (think selvedge denim, Oxford shirting, T-shirts and more).

The Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is among a number of styles the brand returns to time and again, including the popular Taylor Stitch California Shirt (perfect to style with a blazer or on its own, untucked), and the Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt. Each are certainly suited for everyday wear, but when the temperature really starts to drop, well, it’s the undeniably cool, rugged and ridiculously soft and wearable Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt that belongs in your wardrobe and on your shoulders. It’s a winning formula playing off a classic flannel work shirt — note the chest flap button pocket and the contrasting chest patch pocket on the other side, for starters. But truly, you can make the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt all your own this season.

With the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt, which only seems to get better each year, well, it really does live up to the hype. It’s the use of hard-wearing yet still soft, relatively breathable 9oz. brushed organic cotton flannel (in a custom twill weave developed exclusively for Taylor Stitch) that sets this durable, rugged shirt apart. The Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is soft right out of the box though, with a fit that allows you to layer it over an equally rugged Taylor Stitch henley or even beneath, say, a Taylor Stitch cardigan (yes, the brand really does do it all). It could be your new favorite flannel shirt for that very reason, and it’s only going to get better and feel softer the more you wear it. It also helps that the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt comes in some seriously cool fall colors, like the rich Forest Plaid shown here.

This Taylor Stitch shirt is the right way to go

That particular Forest Plaid pattern wears nicely with everything from indigo or black denim to olive chinos for a bit of monochromatic style. Cat’s eye buttons also help make the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt feel like a true overshirt versus a flannel shirt, yet another versatile and easily wearable touch that separates this shirt from the pack. Last but not least, the rugged Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is made to be layered, yet also features a nicely tailored fit, so it’s not like a baggy workshirt of days gone by. Yessir, this unbelievably cool, comfortable and rugged flannel shirt just gets the job done this season. Make it yours now.

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

Taylor Stitch Apres Pants | The Coolector

Still hunting for comfortable weekend pants for men? 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.

I’ve got two myself, and my Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt review is, quite simply, five stars.

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.

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.

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.
