Ten years on, San Francisco’s Taylor Stitch has solidified itself as the go-to for long-lasting, well-made classics — pieces that will get you through everyday use because they’re pretty damn comfortable and built to last.
In line with its mission to “get bigger, get better,” Taylor Stitch has been pioneering more responsible ways to make its garments — clothes you’ll both love to wear and feel good about buying. They’re moving all their raw materials to be organic or recycled by 2020, with over 90 percent transitioned by next year. To celebrate the brand’s 10th birthday, we’ve picked our three favorite pieces — seen regularly around the GP office.
Heavy Bag Shirt
At first glance the Heavy Bag Tee may appear like just another long-sleeve shirt, but this hardy top is far from average. Made entirely from upcycled and recycled yarns destined for the landfill, their custom fabric pulls no punches. It’s heavy, but soft to the touch too. And even better, it comes 100% waterless — saving about 1,200 gallons of water when compared to a conventionally-made tee.
The Slim Chino
Taylor Stitch has a history of making products that satisfy your everyday needs, tough enough to take on days around town and those spent miles out in the country. The Slim Chino is no different. It’s made of brushed Spanish Twill, with mercerized yarns for extra durability and softness. The flat front offers a simple, clean look that will never go out of style.
The Jack Everyday Oxford
Taking all the measurements from its first years as a custom shirt-maker, Taylor Stitch developed what became the brand’s staple — the Jack shirt. Perfect when worn tucked or untucked, it’s cut from pre-shrunk 6-oz. Rugby Oxford cloth, and equipped with double-stitched buttons and buttonholes. Best of all, it’s part of the Essentials from Taylor Stitch, which means it’s forever in the rotation.
