Welcome to the Jungle
No matter of your distance from the Equator, if you’ve got an adventurous spirit, you’ll find plenty to appreciate in The Jungle Shirt from Taylor Stitch. Taking its design inspiration from the famed Jungle Jacket silhouette from the Vietnam War – which includes its distinctive chest pockets, flat hem, and hidden button placket – this Taylor Stitch version offers an updated, streamlined aesthetic and responsibly sourced materials.
True to its military origins, The Jungle Shirt from Taylor Stitch ($108) boasts an array of utilitarian detailing (including eyelets at the armpits to keep you cool), so you can brave the the great outdoors without breaking a sweat. These shirts are washed for a broken in feel right out of the box so it will be ready to go for any adventures you’ve got afoot.
There are two oversized chest pockets with angled pocket flaps with hidden button closure on the Jungle Shirt and the pockets have an inverted pleat and expandable bellows. This 100% organic cotton shirt weighs in at 6-oz, so it’s pleasingly lightweight without feeling flimsy. Taylor Stitch have given The Jungle Shirt a wash for a soft, broken-in texture that’s normally reserved for gear that’s been around the block a few times.
Don’t let the laid-back looks of the Jungle Shirt fool you – this one’s Responsibly Built For The Long Haul, and as with all the gear from the guys at Taylor Stitch, it will only get better with age. A few stand out features of the shirt flat hem with side vents and a hidden button front placket.
At $108, the Jungle Shirt from Taylor Stitch is a great addition to any man’s spring wardrobe and whether you’re more inclined towards the Camo or the Ocean offering, this will rapidly become one of your favourite pieces of apparel in your warm weather wardrobe.
