The quality of the craftsmanship, as is always the case with Taylor Stitch, is positively second to none and it boasts the sort of tangible sense of quality we’ve come to expect from the San Francisco based brand.
This no-nonsense and pleasingly sturdy 7.5-oz selvage chambray that the Western Shirt deploys is made with 100% organic cotton, so it’s easy on the environment and doesn’t rely on harmful chemicals to flourish like many other materials on the market. Because this iteration of The Western has been stone washed, it feels well-loved right out of the box.
Devil in the Detail
The Western Shirt has an array of great details that set it apart from the crowd, including Taylor Stitch’s signature California Collar and two slanted snap chest pockets, inspired by the brand’s favourite vintage western shirts. It has a bar-tack reinforcement on top of the pocket flap, top pocket corners, and side gusset and genuine YKK western snaps with an antique brass setting.
At $148, the Western Shirt obviously isn’t a throwaway piece of fashion and that’s something that Taylor Stitch rightly pride themselves upon. It’s classy, well-crafted and offers a timeless sense of style which will go with more or less any outfit choices you make this spring and summer.
