From the introduction last fall of its proprietary footwear line to new and old standouts like its Slim Chinos and the beautiful Moto Jacket, the Taylor Stitch team knows what guys want to wear — and they sure do know how to make that gear well. Enter the Mariners Boot, made in collaboration with the brand’s West Coast pals at SeaVees.
These surprisingly sturdy boots start with Genuine British Ventile waterproof duck canvas and a washed cotton canvas lining for a mix of comfort and durability. Add to that a Herringbone Grip Lock outsole design, technical nylon laces and antique brass eyelets for good measure, and you’ve got the makings of a boot that’s office-ready (try it with slim chinos, an Oxford and a navy blazer) or weekend-ready (match the Navy color with olive cargo pants and a grey henley for a coffee run). For under $200, they could be the best value in terms of footwear you buy this winter. – $184
