Taylor Stitch Beach Jacket

Mar 8, 2017

The beginning of the month means three things; saying “rabbit rabbit” for good luck, checking your watch to make sure the date is correct, and visiting Taylor Stitch to see what new project they’re rolling out. The stand out from this month’s collection? The Taylor Stitch Beach Jacket.

To make this wet-weather outer layer, the young San Francisco brand teamed up with one of the oldest waxed fabric makers in the world, Halley Stevenson. Since 1864 the U.K.-based company has been making top notch weather resistant fabrics, and the fabric provided specifically for Taylor Stitch is no exception. Half nylon and half cotton, the 10 ounce dry waxed material used for the jacket is both light and water resistant, making it perfect for wear through warmer rain showers. But all of this history and utility just serve as highlights to the jacket’s sharp looks. It stands out from the crowd thanks to the character of the fabric used, the quality stitching (done right in San Francisco), and the use of custom snap buttons along the cuffs and hip pockets. You’d be hard pressed to find a better outer layer for spring. You can add this to your wet-weather rotation at $168.

Purchase: $168
