Whenever we’re on the hunt for new apparel here at The Status Life, Taylor Stitch are inevitably one of our go-to brands because they’ve always got awesome new gear hitting their shelves and spring / summer is when they really ramp things up. Check out our pick of 8 spring / summer menswear essentials from Taylor Stitch below:
SHORT SLEEVE HAWTHORNE SHIRT | $125
With its easy-going camp collar (meant to be worn wide open), tidy front placket and a pleasing dose of old school visual appeal, Taylor Stitch’s Short Sleeve Hawthorne is the ideal antidote to a sweltering day, and a winning wingman for those wild summer nights. While the shorter hem and lightweight feel keep things cool and breezy, The Short Sleeve Hawthorne is made to the same unwavering standards as the rest of the brand’s rugged roster. This retro-inspired Rust Stripe colorway offers up personality and striking texture in equal measure, turning your simplest summer fit into a stylistic statement.
WATTS JACKET | $268
A good quality lightweight jacket is a must for the spring / summer months when the temperatures aren’t quite as high as you’d like and the Watts Jacket from Taylor Stitch gets our vote. It is an all-season layering piece that’s made to lock out the elements without weighing you down. Wet weather is a worry of the past thanks to the dry waxed organic cotton shell, and the cotton lining (also 100% organic) is light enough for warm weather but soft enough to keep you cozy when the mercury drops. It’s loaded with functional features like under-arm eyelets for extra breathability and a buttoned storm flap to keep those bitter winds at bay.
TRAIL SHORTS | $88
Summer and shorts go hand in hand and they don’t come much classier than Taylor Stitch’s Trail Shorts. Taking inspiration from retro surf culture and crafted for the modern adventurer, The Trail Short is a trusty summer go-to that’s built to hang ten through the roughest waters. Vintage-style accents like stitched down front pocket bags and a breezy Ocean colourway keep the vibes light, while robust YKK hardware and top-flight build quality guarantees they’ll be beach-ready season after season.
MERINO SOCKS | $22.50
Socks are key to a comfortable outfit and, quite frankly, they don’t come any more comfortable than these Merino Socks from Taylor Stitch. They come in a whole host of awesome colours and will give this under-appreciated staple a new lease on life. Built from a resilient merino wool blend, these socks offer some fantastic texture and moisture-wicking along with anti-microbial properties to keep odours at bay. These socks were made with walking… and hiking, and lounging, and just about everything in between in mind.
Ledge Shirt | $125
This striking, 7-oz brushed organic cotton twill is the ideal weight for every season. You can layer the Ledge Shirt over Taylor Stitch’s Cotton Hemp Tee in the spring and summer, or over one of their heavier knits like The Heavy Bag Henley when cold weather comes in; The Ledge will stay at the front of your wardrobe regardless of what your calendar reads. Finished with a thorough garment wash for a soft, lived in feel right out of the box.
Merino Tee | $68
Taylor Stitch’s Merino Tee is back and better than ever. This is an all-purpose t-shirt: both comfy and casual enough for leisure, and—due to the fact it’s made from merino wool—ready to lend a hand when the time comes for some heavy lifting. Whether you’re planning an afternoon on the couch or a three-day hike, this t-shirt will keep you comfortable (and odour-free) from sunrise to sunset. This ace looking merino edges out the competition thanks to a special mercerization process but all you really need to know is that The Merino Tee will stand up to whatever you throw at it and come out smelling like roses.
DEMOCRATIC JEANS | $188
Making a solid pair of jeans is all about keeping it simple and doing things the right way, not the easy way. For these Democratic Jeans in Sawyer Wash Organic Selvage from Taylor Stitch, they did exactly that. They’re woven on old-school shuttle looms from 100% organic cotton and outfitted with custom YKK hardware engineered to last you a lifetime. This Sawyer Wash iteration is modelled after a real pair of vintage TS jeans from their warehouse, and because the process involves a heavy garment wash, they feel as soft and well worn as they look.
Ball Cap | $38
Taylor Stitch constructed this iteration of the Ball Cap with 7oz organic cotton corduroy; meaning it’s tough as nails and the brilliant hand feel will only get better over time and the more you wear it. A deep burgundy dye plays perfectly against the classic, Taylor Stitch Navy of the interior tape binding and underside of the brim. Responsible materials and second-to-none build quality make this Cap an all star for every season, year after year.
