Taylor Stitch Presidio Jacket

As the summer sun begins to wane and the temperatures start to plummet, we’re inevitably thinking more and more about our autumn wardrobe here at Coolector HQ. Whenever we’ve got new wardrobe requirements, one of our first ports of call is always that of Taylor Stitch as they never let you down and it’s because of awesome offerings like this Presidio Jacket that we’re always coming back for me.

The Presidio Jacket from Taylor Stitch comes in an eye-catching cognac colour and is undoing pre-funding as we speak where you can pick it up for the bargain price of $798 (down from the RRP of $998 when it properly hits the shelves). This stunning leather jacket is one of the heritage pieces of outerwear that you’ll want to hand from one generation to the next and should be seen as somewhat of an investment. Taylor Stitch rightly take pride in producing outerwear of this calibre and they think about such an investment in terms of cost per wear. The more often you wear it and the longer it lasts, the lower the cost per wear—and the more appealing the investment made.

Built for the Long Haul

Exceptionally well crafted, the Presidio Jacket from Taylor Stitch is one of their finest pieces of apparel to date and has been carefully constructed to hold up for decades to come and it can be worn easily and styled to fit into more or less any occasion. For the first part, Taylor Stitch have relied on their friends at Golden Bear to use their almost a century of expertise in the business to craft the highest-quality outerwear available anywhere on the market.

The Taylor Stitch Presidio Jacket takes design inspiration from a classic everyday baseball jacket and they have carefully tweaked the silhouette to create more universality and become what Taylor Stitch like to call “style” or occasion-agnostic. Unquestionably one of Taylor Stitch’s most versatile and functional jackets to date, to put it simply, you can wear the Presidio pretty much any way you damn please and there are no occasions for which it won’t be the perfect fit.

Each one of the Presidio Jackets is made by hand by Golden Bear in California and boasts 7-oz. 80% wool/ 20% nylon grey lining with 3-oz. Cognac leather exterior. Some of the other eye-catching features of this excellent piece of outerwear from Taylor Stitch includes two lower welt handwarmer pockets, a single interior welt pocket, YKK antique brass 2-way separating zipper and heather grey ribbing at cuffs and neck.

Impeccable Craftsmanship

Built with custom tanned leather, each Presidio Jacket is meticulously cut from a single hide to make sure the colour and grain consistency remains on point throughout. The wool lining, colour matched collar and cuff ribbing and lined sleeves are the real icing on the cake for one of the coolest and most enduring pieces of outerwear we’ve encountered in some time here at Coolector HQ.

Though the price tag is quite a punchy one at $798, it represents a chance to purchase it at a discounted rate from the RRP and the minute you pull on the Presidio Jacket for the first time, you’ll know that it has been a wise investment. Taylor Stitch are one of the best in the business when it comes to jackets and this is something which they’ve really showcased with this heritage piece which you’ll likely be handing from one generation to the next.
