If there's one thing Taylor Stitch has shown us with their occasional forays into tailored clothing, suiting doesn't have to be stuffy. On the contrary, a softly-constructed jacket in a custom fabric can be as comfortable as your favorite sweater. Pair it with matching trousers and you're not only ready for the corner office, but a lot cooler than the competition.
Which is where the S.F.-based apparel artisans' new Sheffield Sportcoat and Trousers come in. Both are built with soft, custom-woven linen, which "beyond its breathability offers impressive durability and colorfastness"—i.e, resistance to fading—so these pieces look and feel great, wear after wear and year after year.
Despite its lighter weight and laidback look, the brand notes that pairing the two "expertly tailored, meticulously constructed" pieces will give you a suit that "rivals four-figure alternatives in terms of both build quality and sheer style." Pre-order both now and your Taylor Stitch linen suit will cost you a mere $375 USD. Seriously.
As with all Taylor Stitch garments, the details also indicate something that would normally cost twice as much. Here you'll find genuine dark horn buttons, an environmentally-friendly Bemberg lining for extra comfort, and herringbone pocketing.
And "though it’s true that linen suiting is most commonly spotted in the summer thanks to its lighter weight," the brand notes, the understated and elegant cocoa brown colorway of the Sheffield pieces, with their natural nubby texture, are sure to look great year-round.
