Perfecting the Denim Jacket

The last one you'll ever have to buy.

For their latest small-batch Workshop project, Taylor Stitch traveled to Greensboro, North Carolina for a collection of selvage denim pieces. Working with the folks at the famed Cone Mills, they sourced the yarns and tuned the factory's Draper shuttle looms in order to precisely recreate their classic 1968 denim.

The standout, for us, is this expertly crafted Long Haul jean jacket. Hand tailored in California from a year-round weight without a lot of stiffness, it's a more easy going raw denim—which means it's more comfortable from day one. It's got two rounded patch pockets (one with a handy pen slot), front welt hand-warmer pockets and dual interior pockets. Ideal storage for the modern guy's EDC.

Says the brand: "Milled at a perfect 13.5 oz weight with minimal starch, this denim will break in quickly and produce dream-like fades. After one rinse this denim will blow your mind." And after a year or two, they're pretty confident that people will be offering to buy it off your back. It brings a whole new meaning to the term "investment piece," doesn't it?
