It’s a special sight to see American companies working together to produce quality garments reminiscent of a bygone era. Taylor Stitch is doing just that with Cone Mills in celebration of the denim maker’s 110 year anniversary, offering a jacket and two cuts of jeans in their 110 Year Denim Collection.
Back in the earliest days of the mill, Cone used a plant-based indigo dye to produce all their denim. The result was a much brighter blue than the deep indigo denim we’re used to seeing today. However, it was quickly abandoned when it could be replaced by a modern synthetic substitute. For their 110th anniversary making jeans, Cone went back to their roots and reproduced the denim; and companies like Taylor Stitch (and us) are taking advantage of it in their two jean fits and one jacket.
These cuts aren’t new for the company, but the focus is on the fabric, and these pieces are limited. The Long Haul Jacket is a modern take on the classic denim jacket, with some nice touches like the zig zag stitching in the front and selvedge details on the inside back center seam, along with screen printed San Francisco map pocket bags. For the jeans, they are offering their Democratic Fit and Slim Fit in the 110 Year Denim. These are simple yet classy jeans, no frills about them. There’s a clear focus on the fabric with these pieces – a true homage to Cone Mills.
Available from $168-$198 at Taylor Stitch.
