This Quilted Jacket Has a Cool Backstory to Match Its Style

With Taylor Stitch, the story behind their cool forays into menswear is often just as compelling as the items themselves. And such is the case with the new Decker Jacket, a quilted outer layer with style to spare.

"The first Decker Jacket was a faithful recreation of a rare vintage piece that our co-founder Michael discovered in a seaside workshop on his family’s property in Maine," the brand recounts. The original re-issue was super retro, so for this version, Taylor Stitch decided to go high-tech, with remarkable results.

The timeless silhouette remains the same, "but we opted for modern materials with an eye towards performance and responsibility," as the brand notes—i.e. recycled fibers.

While nylon is famously durable, "unfortunately its production takes a serious toll on the environment," T.S. informs us. "That’s why both the shell and the lining of The Decker Jacket are built with recycled nylon, which is significantly easier on the planet."

It's also been insulated with 100% recycled polyester fill for some extra warmth that won’t weigh you down, and topped off with a water-repellent finish and classic YKK snaps. As in, snap up your own right now.
