One of our favorite independent Californian clothing brands, Taylor Stitch, has come up with a way to look great in warmer months while paying tribute to an American icon. We're talking about their new Hemingway shirts, modeled on the ones worn by the legendary author and sportsman from Pamplona to Key West while drinking, fishing, and writing up a storm.
To create the stylish short-sleevers, the S.F.-based apparel artisans started with two different but equally appealing fabrics: a sturdy woven "double cloth" and a classic summertime seersucker. Both are of course 100% organic cotton in keeping with the brand's commitment to sustainable clothing.
The Hemingway is essentially a short sleeve "chore shirt with all of the character and careful construction" you'd expect of a garment bearing the Taylor Stitch label. And naturally, it's also "built it to withstand adventuring of all sorts—from the green hills of Africa to the snows of Kilimanjaro," à la the author himself.
The double cloth version comes in a greenish-brown dubbed walnut while the seersucker edition is in a timeless navy blue. They're cut with the brand's signature California collar and detailed with natural Corozo buttons and a chest pocket with button-through flap.
