Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket

Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket

Make this a new go-to winter blazer or travel jacket … or both.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll come right out and say it: A new year calls for new outerwear upgrades aplenty, and if you only want to buy one jacket right now, you best make it one of the best men’s winter jackets, the Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket. Call it a hybrid between a blazer and a travel jacket of sorts, but just make sure it’s on your radar for winter adventures, your next Zoom call or a safe, socially distanced outdoor date under heat lamps. The good folks at Taylor Stitch, a longtime favorite of the blog, always have a knack for making menswear that goes above and beyond the call of duty.

Whether it’s a rugged shirt jacket you can layer atop a henley or beneath a field jacket, or a classic Oxford shirt you can wear both beneath a blazer or unbuttoned, casually, atop your favorite pocket T-shirt, the brand’s gear is both perfectly built for its home base (the ever-shifting climes of San Francisco) and just about anywhere else. And if you want a versatile jacket for a Zoom call that looks dressed up but is actually as comfortable as dressing down, you want the Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket for the year ahead. Your author’s personal favorite is the Charcoal Birdseye Wool option shown above, but the Gibson Jacket really is one of the best winter blazers for men any way you slice it. Keep on scrolling for the full scoop, of course.

Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket

As versatile a winter jacket as it gets, folks.

The great thing about the Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket is the versatile design that makes it unlike any other blazer out there. Front flap patch pockets provide both space for your everyday carry essentials and travel documents (or even a small notebook), while the center vent gives it the clean look and ease of wearability of a classic winter blazer for men.  The Gibson Jacket’s fabric, a blend of wool and reclaimed fibers, is comfortable to the touch and not scratchy. And here’s the real kicker: You can wear this jacket with the collar standing up and the throat latch buttoned to protect yourself from the elements, or you can turn it into a proper blazer in just a jiffy, thanks to the 3-roll-2 design (3 buttons on a jacket, made to look like a two-button jacket — neat, ehh?). Two interior zippered pockets add even more EDC-minded functionality, and the fact that the body of the jacket is unlined means you can even wear it casually atop, say, a Taylor Stitch henley without missing a beat. Taken all at once, the Taylor Stitch Gibson Jacket checks all the right boxes (and then some), and it looks absolutely great doing so. Make it yours today.

Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket

A rugged shirt jacket that’s going to become your new go-to layer.

If I know one thing, it’s that you need to gear up for winter accordingly, seeing as it’s December and all, and you need to do so with one brand: The unstoppable San Francisco-based gear purveyors at Taylor Stitch. You know the brand for its high-quality leather jackets, chinos and now, you know it for the Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket, one of the best shirts for winter. It’s a fan favorite, it’s one of my favorite shirts from Taylor Stitch, and it’s now back and better than ever in an eye-catching colorway that’s absolutely perfect for the holiday season ahead. Perhaps it’s the Clifford Red color or perhaps it’s the fact that the Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket is part shirt, part jacket and seriously stylish either way … but you really can’t go wrong with this rugged and burly “shacket,” as it were. Of course, it’s also available in a Deep Navy color (as shown below), but the Clifford Red is my personal favorite.

Taylor Stitch review

Another must-have colorway when it comes to this essential shirt jacket — right?

The use of wool and reclaimed fibers in building this tough shirt jacket makes it stylish, warm and sustainable, all at once. Plus, the brand’s California collar (a TS signature) makes it more like a classic flannel shirt than a hard-wearing work shirt. However, oversized flap chest pockets mean you really can wear this shirt jacket to tackle tough projects and haul your everyday carry essentials around without missing a beat. It’s trim, and yet cut so that you can layer everything from a Taylor Stitch henley to a Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt underneath it, in case you feel like swapping out your traditional blazer or cardigan (which you should certainly try for the holiday season!). And of course, because it’s a hybrid piece and shouldn’t be too incredibly heavy, the brand says you can even wear it on into the spring months. But for now, as the cold confines of winter approach, the Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket is going to be your new go-to layer.

The Moto Boot in Golden Brown Waxed Suede | Taylor Stitch…

Some of the coolest, best men’s boots for early fall — made with uncompromising quality in mind, at that.

It’s nearly the end of August, it’s almost Labor Day … that means, as much as you might not believe it, it’s time to start gearing up for fall, and it’s an even better time to get some of the best boots for men via one of your favorite brands.

I’ve certainly been a longtime fan of the brand, from its stylish indigo jeans and expertly cut polos to, naturally, the best Oxford shirt. And on the footwear front, Taylor Stitch has done as great a job as any brand out there at making high-quality, craftsmanship-focused footwear to pair with its full line of menswear (including the tough boots seen at the top of the page). The specs are one-of-a-kind, as is the construction and design process — let’s dive on in.

Pin on His Closet

Lace up these absurdly tough men’s boots, then get yourself ready for fall.

It all starts with a team of artisans in León, Mexico, a locale renowned for its footwear factories and high-quality footwear. In that regard, the Taylor Stitch Moto Boots start with tough waxed suede designed to fight the elements and age nicely the more you wear ’em. The Vibram mini-lug sole provides traction and toughness, while a natural leather midsole and storm welt offer up sturdy toughness, too.

Once you’ve stepped into these stylish leather boots, you’re looking at a leather-lined insole for comfort, and antique brass hardware for a tough, laced-up finish. The moto boot profile means these are going to wear nicely with slim Taylor Stitch chinos, rugged denim or tough chore pants in equal measure. Up top, these rugged leather boots team nicely with your favorite style essentials, from a classic Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt to one of the brand’s rugged henleys — or really, anything else you can dream up (you can be sure they’ll wear nicely with an indigo denim Western shirt, among other picks, for example). To get into the spirit of early fall, you need the best boots on the market — start here, and your ensembles are only bound to get better as the season rolls on.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt

Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt

One of two stylish chambray shirts from the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection.

If you follow the blog regularly — and I sure hope you do — you’ll know that we’ve been talking this month about Taylor Stitch, and the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection. More to the point, we’ve been talking about the kind of pieces from the standout San Francisco retailer that just work, regardless of the season. That’s no more true than right now, with the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt — as we move through August into September and beyond, you need one of the best chambray shirts in your rotation, and you need to be shopping the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection.

Ladies and gentlemen, this rugged chambray shirt just so happens to be even better than you might expect, for one. It’s a workhorse daily shirt for day-to-night wear. Whether you pick it up in Blue Everyday Chambray or Charcoal Everyday Chambray, I think you’ll quickly find you’ll have plenty of ways to wear it right off the bat (yes, even during these socially distanced times). Bonfires, beach visits, day trips and to-go beer runs … this is the chambray shirt you need. We’ll get into more of that in a second, though — you don’t get one of the most versatile men’s shirts without first making it to exacting standards. That’s what the brand has done with the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt, and a fine job they’ve done indeed.

Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt - Charcoal | Garmentory

You can’t go wrong with either Blue or Charcoal when it comes to this classic chambray shirt from Taylor Stitch.

This classic chambray shirt checks all the right boxes when it comes to durable construction and design, from the use of organic cotton chambray to the tailored fit and higher armhole. The higher armhole gives you a cleaner look while still allowing you to rock this chambray shirt on its own or layered up atop, say, a Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee. Double-needle construction and bar-tacked finishing at stress points both ensure this rugged shirt won’t give out on you, even as you traverse the great outdoors this fall.

If you haven’t yet tried a Taylor Stitch chambray shirt, or you’re familiar with brands like J. Crew and its lauded chambray shirt, this is one heck of a change of pace — it’s a step up in rugged quality and dependability, for starters. Better still? You can wear your new favorite shirt with slim Taylor Stitch chinos or the brand’s selvedge denim with ease. How great is that? If you end up giving the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt a try, be sure to give me a shout on Twitter. Happy shopping out there, folks. Thanks for reading!

The Thursday Buy: These Taylor Stitch Chinos Are Your New Favorite Pants

Taylor Stitch chinos review

The best pants for men? Check. The best men’s chinos? Also, check.

My friends, you best continue to acquaint yourself with Taylor Stitch. Specifically, the San Francisco retailer’s chinos, which are, simply put, your new favorite pair of pants (and some of the best chinos for men, to boot). These are a pair of chinos I first reviewed back in 2015, if you can believe it, and it’s no exaggeration to say Taylor Stitch chinos have only gotten better and at the same time … maintained the same incredible quality and rigorous standards. Is that an exaggeration? Not even close — wait ’til you see all the stops they’ve pulled out for the latest iteration, from versatile design to quality construction (including organic cotton). In fact, you can get these organic cotton chinos in a plethora of colors via the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, from the timeless British Khaki to the neutral Ash to crisp Navy and of course, an even cooler shade of Olive. Details like soft brushed fabric, custom brass hardware and interior vintage map pocket detailing make these some of the coolest men’s pants, period.

And the fits? Absolutely excellent, from the roomier-but-still-tailored Democratic Chinos (slightly tapered below the knee and roomier through the thigh) to the slim-but-not-too-tight Slim Chinos. Seriously, these are a truly revelatory pair of stylish men’s chinos that every guy needs to own. That’s certainly going out on a limb, but I promise, it’s not too much (if you’ve tried the brand out, you know). And if you haven’t? Take a shot with the Taylor Stitch Organic Cotton Chinos just once, and you just might want to fill your closet with a pair in every color. It seems pretty fitting they come from the stellar Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection — they’re as crucial to have in your wardrobe for early fall (and beyond) as anything else you can dream up.

Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket

Pre-fund this leather jacket right now — it’s some of the best outerwear on the market.

It’s here, it’s official, and you need it in your shopping cart: The Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket is perhaps the best leather jacket of the moment, done up in rich Cognac leather akin to a delicious spirit for your bar cart. Right now, you can get $200 off this standout men’s leather jacket when you pre-fund it — how’s that for a Sunday Sale? We just talked yesterday about the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee — one of the best T-shirts out there — but it’s time to turn back towards one of our favorite menswear brands for today’s offering. Taylor Stitch certainly has plenty of experience in the leather jacket game (see the Moto Jacket), but the Cuyama Jacket is even better. The silhouette itself is based on a secondhand shop find, and the brand has brought it into the modern age with a timeless reboot. But — and this is crucial — you can only get this deal through the Taylor Stitch Workshop for a limited time. 

SHOP: Get 20 Percent Off the Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket 

In fact, that’s what allows the brand to offer up great pricing. Pre-fund the Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket early and knock 20 percent off the eventual retail price — easy as that. It’s an incredibly rugged leather jacket you’ll have for years, featuring buttery-soft Cognac cowhide leather designed to age remarkably. Cotton twill lining rounds out the body of the jacket, while corduroy cuff and collar detailing adds some old-school appeal. Natural dark horn corozo buttons drive home refinement and attention to detail, while “cellar door” side pockets provide space for your everyday carry essentials. Like a glass of fine Cognac, this leather jacket is going to perform even better when aged over time. That’s the way it should be, after all.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee

A seriously cool, essential tee for all your summer style needs.

As we move into August, one thing is pretty clear to me — if you don’t yet have one of the best men’s T-shirts, it’s time you snagged one ASAP from the good folks at Taylor Stitch, especially from the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection. Whether you pick up the one-of-a-kind Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee in the excellent Dusty Clay color as seen above, or go with a classic white tee, it’s hard to misstep — very, very difficult to misstep, as it were. Naturally, this exceptionally stylish T-shirt fits right in with the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, and it’s available with just enough time left in the summer to get some good wear out of it (although who said you can’t wear your new favorite tee all year long, ehh?) What makes this T-shirt so different? As ever, it starts with the small stuff — or in this case, the not-so-small stuff. You see, Taylor Stitch continues to go the extra mile when it comes to being sustainable and stylish, so they’re making one of the best T-shirts for men using a unique blend of upcycled cotton and recycled polyester in a heavier 8oz. fabric construction. That makes it the type of tee you can wear on your own or layered accordingly beneath a rugged denim jacket or a chambray shirt — that’s just to start, though.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee

The Natural color makes this Taylor Stitch tee one of the coolest T-shirts for men.

The Dusty Clay or Natural colorways are your author’s favorites when it comes to the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee — either could be worn easily with faded light wash denim and your favorite chukka boots, or else with slim tan chinos and white canvas sneakers. This is the kind of cool T-shirt you really can throw on and forget about (aside from when you get compliments on it, of course). The fully-taped shoulder seams offer durable construction and long-lasting wearability, whether you chose to rock the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee for back patio beers or an upstate bonfire (or both!). The well-made pocket adds a bit of visual interest and some space for any smaller EDC essentials (heck, use it to carry a titanium pen as you work on your next workshop project). When the weather starts to get chilly this summer, or when you need to layer up with a rugged flannel shirt come fall and winter, this is quite simply one of the best T-shirts you can buy.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans

Stepping out in cool-as-can-be summer style with Taylor Stitch.

Before we dive into today’s post, thank you for stopping by the blog during these challenging times. If you’ve ever cruised through the digital pages of this site, then you well and truly know how much your Brooklyn-based author loves what the great team across the way at San Francisco’s Taylor Stitch is doing. They’ve been a consistent, longtime favorite of this blog when it comes to producing men’s style essentials — the right way — for any season, including summer style gear. And here’s the kicker: Right now during these difficult and unquestionably times — when small businesses can use our help more than ever — you can get 20 percent off your first order of all Taylor Stitch gear. Which brings me to my main point: The Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans, as seen at the top of the page, are some of the best men’s jeans to buy now, then wear all summer (and fall, and winter). Rest assured, we’ll get into the indigo dye later on, but you should know that when Taylor Stitch sets out to produce something, they do so with the mindset that it should be a piece you can have in your wardrobe for years to come. This leads us to the excellently curated Taylor Stitch Staff Essentials Collection, naturally. You could readily put together a cool outfit for summer using only picks from that collection (including a classic T-shirt and rugged leather boots), but let’s focus on the Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans for just one second, shall we? It might seem pretty odd to be talking about indigo denim while we’re in the throes of summer, but rest assured, the TS gang does things differently.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans

The customary San Fran map pocket detailing and durable copper hardware from Taylor Stitch.

These slim blue jeans are exquisitely crafted, made with a fit that rivals that of the excellent Taylor Stitch Slim Chinos (and if you’ve tried a pair, you know they really are exceptional). The Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans are crucially made with a blend of hemp and organic cotton for sustainability and a lighter weight than jeans made from, say, pure Japanese selvedge. A button fly and rivets made from tough YKK copper shanks only add to the durability of these surprisingly rugged blue jeans — yet, it’s that critical  fabric  blend that makes these a pair of blue jeans you can wear during summer.

Let’s talk about the indigo dye, too. It’s done twice, making these a richly crafted pair of jeans that are dressier than light wash denim (although you need a pair of each in your wardrobe!). When it comes to styling the Taylor Stitch Slim Indigo Jeans, well, that’s up to you. Be careful about excess dye rubbing off, but go forth and wear them with everything from a charcoal Oxford shirt and suede chukka boots to your favorite T-shirt and high-top canvas sneakers. Available at a great price for the moment, you’re going to get outstanding quality and versatility out of these stylish men’s jeans, no questions asked.
