Behind The Brand: Taylor Stitch with Founder Mike Maher

Jun 15, 2022

Category: Style

Mike Maher graduated college back in 2008 with misty-eyed dreams of wrangling together a fleet of vehicles for a van rental company. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned — an ongoing recession and sky-high gas prices made the venture pretty cost-prohibitive.

With nary a seam to show for it, Maher instead decided to get into the menswear market. A self-professed “perfect medium,” he sought to make premium custom shirts available at a price more men could afford — and it’s a move that’s paid off big.

That’s because, since that time, Maher and his co-founders have applied their findings to the world of off-the-rack apparel. As a result, this has allowed the resultant brand — Taylor Stitch — to make clothing that’s not only better fitting but also more in line with customers’ tastes.

From the early days of the enterprise to the typical ‘Taylor Stitch guy’ to the environmental realities of the clothing industry, we get into it all in the latest installment of our Behind The Brand video series.
