In the Hood

Taylor Stitch churches up the hoodie

By The Editors

The venerable hoodie plays many roles in these parts.

Nightshirt. Sport coat. Dinner jacket.

Yet despite its apex predator status on the startup-attire food chain, it’s got a bit of a Peter Pan complex.

Enter the dapper gents of Taylor Stitch and their newly issued indigo button-up hooded sweatshirt, a mature take on an immature standard, now available.

Prewashed nine-oz. French terry. Tailored fit. Classy cat’s-eye buttons.

In other words, the hoodie all growed up — but still true to its “can’t hang no tie on my neck” roots.

Perfect for dressing up jeans and a T-shirt or dressing down jeans and a button-up.

Handmade in S.F. and available at TS’s shops in the Mission and the Marina (or online). Act fast; quantities are limited.

But the applications: endless.
