Now that we’re officially into the heat of summer, it’s definitely time to think of a summer-appropriate denim. Even if you’re a diehard who’s still wearing your heavyweight selvedge, there are at least a couple of lighter colored options on the market to keep you from losing your cool.
Taylor Stitch was started in March of 2008 by three friends, initially setting out to create the best custom shirt possible. Two years later, their first collection was released, followed closely in March of 2011 by their brick-and-mortar store which they opened in the Mission District in San Francisco. These days, the trio produce a wide arrange of sportswear, denim, and accessories all hand-made in California. In their physical store they sell not only their own products, but those by well-known brands like Tellason, Joshu + Vela, Makr Carry Goods, Dodo Case, Anonymous Ism, among others.
The fine people over at Taylor Stitch, the San Francisco-based made-in-California menswear shop, have released a 12.5 Oz. Cone Mills Natural Selvedge Denim. The denim is sourced from the ubiquitous Cone Denim Mills in Greensboro, NC, and the fit is labeled as “Democratic,” meaning nicely tailored but not too skinny. The selvedge is also a nice change of pace for a denim-head’s summer rotation, with the natural off-white shade serving as a simple and good-looking way to mix it up.
