How It Fits - Blue Jeans.
We shoot to create solutions to problems. That is a large part of our design philosophy as we delve into a new category of clothing. Our issues were the following with many pairs of jeans we put on: -Getting our thighs into jeans and then moving around (throwing our legs over our bikes, bending down to tie our shoes, etc…). We gave these a bit more room so they don’t feel so tight at the...

It’s official. We have recruited the man power necessary to run the shop seven days a week and we could not be any more excited about the two fellas that have joined Taylor Stitch to help us carefully grow. We want to invite you to come in this week for last minute Christmas shopping and to meet both Hidekazu and Juan. Come down to 383 Valencia Street (between 14th and 15th Streets) and grab a...
Last Minute Christmas Orders. Ho Ho Ho.
Get your orders in everybody. The last day to guarantee we will get it under the tree for you is Tuesday December 20th. There is a good chance even if you order it on the 21st or the 22nd we will get it to you because USPS Priority Mail is doing things lickety split these days. We also have the best postman in the world and Ed will make sure things get done!

Crisp Days Are No Problem At All.
Architecturally, San Francisco is a city of textures and colors. This weeks shirt offerings (Navy Plaid Twill& Rust Herringbone Plaid) remind us clearly of the city we live in. City blocks are lined with stately turn of the century victorians and edwardians. The outside of each house is adorned with intricate trim work, wooden panes and sills, traditional banister-rowed steps and large...
Taylor Stitch Exclusively For Huckberry.
We dropped a bunch of super soft and perfectly casual shirts off to the fellas at Huckberry this morning in preparation for their exclusive launch on Thursday. We teamed up with them to put together a great shirt that is both versatile in it’s function and perfect for San Francisco’s crisp weather. A couple ideas were sketched out and we came to a quick consensus that a flap pocket...
Gift Ideas: A Post For Pop Sugar.
I was asked by Pop Sugar to curate a little gift guide for guys this holiday season. I went the more experiential route and let people get into the design and learning process. From tours of St. George’s Spirits to getting schooled on how to make better coffee at home to stopping by our shop and designing yourself some new kicks from Rancourt & Co. I hope you enjoy this and it helps a...
How To Make Cowboy Coffee.
Sometimes you don’t always have the luxuries of being next to one of the world’s best coffee shops. This is a pretty simple way to do things in the woods. We recommend bringing a hand grinder with you if you can afford the space. Otherwise bring some pre-ground beans and seal them well. Simply boil the water over an open flame and add a healthy dose of grounds (roughly 1-2...
How To Pan Fry A Fish At Camp.
Growing up, even though I didn’t appreciate the taste of fish, knowing how to pan fry a fish was required knowledge. We learned to fly fish, clean a fish and cook it in a pan. No complaints here to have retained this into adulthood. Although most of my fishing these days is catch and release, it is good to know how to feed yourself if you end up out in the wilderness headed up the...
Yosemite Shirt. Available Now.
There is new school and old school. Both have their time and place depending on the activity. I’ve always been one to subscribe to both schools of thought because of it. The shirts this week speak to just about everyone. It is sewed up in an organic cotton chamois so damn soft and warm you could wear it as a blanket on those cold nights in the Yosemite Valley. On the other side of the coin...
Yosemite Shirt. Sneak Peek #2. Forest Green.
Launching tomorrow, here is the second of the four colors of chamois shirts that will be available late tonight or first thing in the morning. Song remains the same … $125 and if you join the email list you’ll be the first to know and get a little pure cane sweetener with every note we write to you.
Sneak Peek. Yosemite Shirt.
We are psyched to have linked up with our good buds at Buckshot Sonny’s (the venerable Max Wastler and Joe Gannon) to create the Yosemite Shirt. Homage paid to some of the finer people to truly push the limits of the Yosemite Valley, which is a place that we hold pretty near and dear to San Francisco. If you are in Chicago you can pick one up from Max at the Dose Market. Otherwise they...
versatility shirts. available now.
Most men are in search of a shirt that they can wear to work and be comfortable socializing in afterwards. The reality is, guys are wildly dissatisfied with the versatility of their options. “Work shirts” tend to be cut fuller and even the ones that are cut “slim” still hang to your knees. The collars and cuffs are fused or glued (making them appear rigid), the...
we're back. blogging that is.
So, as you may or may not know our blog has been down for about two weeks, maybe more. We know it’s pathetic. Things have been a bit crazy and we are in the process of transferring everything to this new blog. That’s right, this is the new home. RSS it, follow it, do whatever you have to. We will eventually have all of our previous posts backlogged here as well. We are just working on getting...
