Unseasonably warm weather across the country has brought the flowers out a bit early this year.
This is quite possibly our most refined dress shirt to date. It appears to be a beautiful indigo-rich denim from a distance, but the hand is incredibly soft.
Our dark horn buttons are the perfect partner in crime. Subtly aiding and abbeting the English spread collar to pull off one of chambrays suavest apperances to date.
Put it under a charcoal suit with a bold tie and you would have a hard time not being the best dressed fella in the room. Enjoy this limited offering, because when it is gone, it’s gone.
Many things can be said about Christopher Losa.
He was one of our first customers and one of the most impeccably dressed.
His sartorial interest is representative of his greater appreciation for design.
Him and his wife’s restaraunt, Bar Bambino, is a magnificent manifestation of his ethos, attention to detail and service as well as his masterful knowledge of Italian and Austro Hungarian wines.
When you visit, it is imperative to ask him to recommend one of fourteen orange wines on the menu.
With Bar Bambino celebrating its fifth anniversary this month - Christopher’s mastery of hospitality and craft is truly an inspiration and we are proud to have him as a neighbor and friend.
For the past year we have been asked when we are launching a short sleeve shirt. That being said, we’d like to proudly introduce our newest style, the SS Milton.
Why? Because when Milton finally flips Lumbergh the bird and goes on permanent vacation with a babe under one arm and a Swingline stapler under his other, this is the shirt he will be wearing.
A single chest pocket for your sunnies as well as the perfect sleeve length to show off your artillery.
Get outside and have some fun.
(pocket protector not included)
This week we would also like to take the opportunity to introduce you to our newest form of TS modeling.
SHARE YOUR WEAR
Send us pictures of you guys rocking your TS gear.
It’s all pretty simple. You send us a picture many different ways (illustrated here).
Oh yeah, we almost forgot. If we edit and use your photo we send you a 15% off code for your next purchase.
Have some fun and be creative.
For this week’s shirts, we wanted to pay homage to Hidekazu. He took over as our amazing shop keeper back in December and has been a vital part of our success.
As we were going through traditional japanese fabrics earlier this year Kazu told us the story of how each print relates to springtime in Japan.
We held him to it and created these well appointed shirts with our signature horn buttons.
An easy addition to your shirting quiver, this chambray shirt is perfectly weighted and buttery soft to the touch.
You can wear it just about any way you want. It’s your yardwork shirt on the weekends and stands up just as well in the workplace.
The rich shade of indigo is deep and true. You inspect the shirt, turn it inside out.
The construction is truly authentic - everything’s done by hand using single needle tailoring.
Lastly, you try it on. It fits perfectly.
It’s sturdy and understated. Wear the hell out of it.
If riding 13,000 miles across South America on a moped doesn’t say rugged we don’t know what does.
We were fortunate enough to spend the afternoon with Graham French, a gifted man with many interests and talents including photography, and of course mopeding.
Graham, whose full time job is running Glass Coat Photo Booth Co, spends time on the side repairing bikes. He has owned over 100 mopeds (with no more than 60 at one time, of course) and 5 motorbikes. Again, rugged right?
In 2006, with best wishes from his family, a map and an ipod, he set out for a five-month-long moped exhibition from San Francisco to Tierra del Fuego.
Graham’s book, Moped To South America, is filled with just a selection of the six-hundred medium format photos he took documenting this amazing journey.
We loved spending time with someone who isn’t afraid to take advantage of such adventures and is able to capture all the unique beauty along the way.
Tune in tomorrow for more photos of Graham as we introduce our newest edition to your Taylor Stitch collection … the Mechanic’s Shirt.
