Taylor Stitch Ojai Jacket in Charcoal

With winter starting to settle in the bones now, there is no better time to get your hands on a new jacket and one of the best in the business so far as outerwear is concerned is Californian brand, Taylor Stitch. As if to prove this point, we turn your attention in the direction of the Taylor Stitch Ojai Jacket which is one mighty fine looking piece of outerwear which doesn’t only look great, but delivers an impeccable layer of protection this winter.

The Taylor Stitch Ojai Jacket comes in a washed charcoal colour way and has a pre-funding price tag of $188, which is rather reasonable for such a stylish and robust looking jacket. This first class piece of apparel from one of our favourite lifestyle brands here at Coolector HQ is Taylor Stitch’s much-lauded take of the iconic French workwear jacket and for those after a classy piece of outerwear to see them through 2019 and beyond, look no further.

Sumptuous Style

Handsome to a T, this eye-catching Ojai Jacket in Charcoal from Taylor Stitch is definitely going to be your go-to jacket over the next few months and its effortless cool is something that we’ve come to expect from this American lifestyle and apparel brand. The Ojai Jacket is an updated take on an original release and all the obsessively curated details of its forebear are back, including versatile dual-entry front patch pockets and rarely-seen ring-back buttons.

The Taylor Stitch Ojai Jacket in Charcoal really stands out from the crowd as a result of its washed finish which gives this fantastic looking piece of outerwear a tangible and visually impactful, lived-in feel from the first wear to the fiftieth. The Ojai Jacket remains in a class of its own as far as we concerned at The Coolector and you’ll find it difficult to find a jacket that offers the same aesthetic superiority and performance as this for such an appealing price.

Made from 7.5-oz. 100% Cotton with a sateen fabric which ages deliciously, the Ojai Jacket in Charcoal has been lightly rinsed for that lived-in feel. The first thing you’ll notice with the Ojai Jacket is that after a few wears, its subtle sheen will begin to give way to tremendous nuance in both texture and colour that really adds to the overall visual appeal of the garment. In the interest of putting an already stellar piece of outerwear’s best foot forward, Taylor Stitch have given this latest Ojai the gently washed finish for the striking look straight of the bat.

Devil in the Detail

As with all the outerwear (and all the apparel for that matter) from Taylor Stitch, there are plenty of great little design features inherent in this jacket which enhance its impressive finish and performance (and make the $188 price tag all the more appealing). This includes the black ring back buttons with brass pin and rings, two lower patch pockets feature top and side entry, a single chest pocket with pen slot and double needle stitching throughout.

If you need a new jacket for all your adventures in 2019, the Ojai Jacket in Charcoal from Taylor Stitch gets our vote here at Coolector HQ. Great to look at, hard-wearing and gets better with age, what’s not to like? The beauty of this jacket is that it’s lightweight enough to be worn under something heavier, but don’t be surprised if you prefer to show it off and wear it as your main piece of outerwear.
