Taylor Stitch has long been hip to the appeal of indigo-dyed garments, with their rich, deep blue hue, sartorial sensibility, and easy elegance. Now the S.F.-based style mavens have taken the indigo aesthetic to a new level by combining it with one of their signature fabrics: hemp.
Nor pure hemp, mind you, which would be a bit wimpy on its own, but a custom 6-oz. 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton blend with the perfect slubby texture, washed for lived-in softness right out of the box.
The match made in heaven manifests itself in the brand's new Cash Shirt in indigo hemp, based on a shirting silhouette that we see as a fitting tribute to Johnny Cash, who often work denim work shirts before he went all black.
Of course, Taylor Stitch has refined the work shirt formula with the new Cash, not only with its fantastic fabric, but a modern cut and key details like a button-flap chest pocket, dyed-to-match cat's eye buttons, and a shorter tail length that lends itself to being left untucked.
The end result as they note is "rugged, reliable, and ready to age with grace," as the more you wear and wash it, the more the indigo dye will fade, "highlighting the weave and giving way to an entirely unique finish."
