When Taylor Stitch sets out on a clothing quest, perfection is the goal and time is no object. A prime example: the Yosemite Shirt, their "multi-year effort" to create the perfect outdoor shirt, bar none.
It has taken on a few different forms over various seasons but the S.F.-based apparel artisans seem to have finally reached the summit for fall. For the latest iteration, the brand "sourced the thickest, puppy-soft chamois" to produce what will instantly become one of your most beloved garments.
Unlike other shirts crafted from chamois – in Taylor Stitch's universe at least, a heavy-duty, perfectly brushed flannel that never pills and just gets better with age — this one is made from 100% organic cotton, meaning the environment wasn't ravaged to grow it with chemicals and other nasty junk.
Ideal over a t-shirt or on top of another button-down for optimal warmth, the 9-oz. cloth is super soft but tough as nails for whatever you throw it's way, from Sunday brunch bloody marys to long hikes in the woods.
