The suede jacket is a signature menswear piece, the kind of thing that makes you feel bulletproof and confident no matter the sartorial situation. And unlike its leather jacket cousin, the soft napped finish of suede gives it a downplayed elegance that's less "look at me" and more "be like me."
When it comes to the right pick, you have plenty of options. But few fuse a luxurious feel with rugged, durable construction and timeless American design quite like the new Wyatt Jacket from Taylor Stitch. It's the best example we've seen in some time and is priced to sell, all things considered.
The piece is "handsome, hard-wearing, and packed with handy features" like an array of EDC-ready pockets and bi-swing shoulders for extra mobility. The suede material weighs in at 3 oz. and impresses with a rich cognac color that goes with everything. It's finished with tonal corozo buttons and antique brass zippers along with soft cotton twill lining through the torso for warmth and a smooth acetate in the sleeves for easy on, easy off.
