In these turbulent times, it's even more critical to invest in clothing that stands up to stress and improves with age. Which is basically the mission statement of Taylor Stitch. And the S.F.-based apparel artisans have knocked it out of the park with their latest creation, the Ojai Jacket in indigo herringbone.
"The durability of a denim jacket with the timeless sophistication of a tweed blazer" is how they describe this style stalwart, and that's what we want in a top layer every time. The silhouette is that of a chore coat, but the herringbone pattern and indigo dye put it well above mere workwear.
The 11.5-oz. 100% organic cotton they use has great texture and the perfect weight for in-between weather. The fine point: this custom fabric is dappled with tiny "nep" fibers, i.e. errant white threads, that "bring depth and nuance to an age-old design," the brand notes.
The Ojai is one of Taylor Stitch's standout silhouettes, but this latest rendition is above and beyond. As always, if you pre-order it now for delivery in June you'll save big — in this case a solid 40%. So get to it.
