A big reason a hoodie is so handy is its versatility. It can go from a weekend hike to lunch uptown to courtside seats at the game. Taylor Stitch has a smart take on this wardrobe staple that may become your go-to favorite: the Fillmore Hoodie in Ash Double Knit.
In San Francisco where Taylor Stitch is based, Fillmore is the name not only of a neighborhood (traversed by Fillmore Street) where you can grab a beer or a banh mi sandwich but also the name of the decades-old music venue there. Jeff Tweedy performs when he’s in town. So: Taylor Stitch named their hoodie after a favorite ‘hood.
The structure of the piece is perfect, neither overly baggy nor fitted. It features superbly soft organic cotton, and the Ash Grey colorway will go with practically anything. The double knit in the name refers to the two-ply texture: outside is cotton jersey while on the inside is a waffle weave.
Besides scoring some style points, the waffle weave allows airflow to pass through which helps keep dry by preventing moisture and sweat buildup. But one thing Taylor Stitch did sweat is the details. Two handwarmer patch pockets are reinforced with extra ribbing, as are the cuffs. The hood has three-piece construction which means three panels of fabric (rather than two panels with a center seam atop the head, common in cheaper garments) sewn together to provide a comfortable fit. The flat drawcord is a design element too.
