SF’s Best Men’s Label Is Crushing Fall Outerwear, as Expected

5 essential jackets from the land where fall never ends

October 9, 2017 9:00 am

Of all the things a man should consider when dressing for fall, his choice in outerwear should be at the top.

Given the weather, its inclusion is compulsory. So you might as well let it set the tone for the rest of the outfit.

As for which jacket to reach for? That’s a process that begins by acknowledging your “look,” so to speak. The closer you are to recognizing that, the easier it is to find a jacket that’ll go with everything.

But if you’re looking for a brand that offers just about every style under the sun, look no further than San Francisco’s Taylor Stitch. In short: they’ve been on a roll lately. (No surprise, given that fall weather is viable in San Francisco somewhere around 365 days a year.)

Back in 2014, TS introduced the Workshop, a crowdfunding platform in which they ask customers to choose what they sell on a product-by-product basis. It’s a business model that allows them to bring costs down (as well as waste), match supply with demand perfectly, and introduce a variety of styles and fabrics they might not otherwise be able to offer.

The proof is in Taylor Stitch’s current range of outerwear. It’s everything we love about the brand — quality fabrics, high-end construction and a bevy of essential styles — at incredible prices.

Below, you’ll find the five jackets we’re digging right now.

The Moto Jacket
