The Field Jacket in Midnight from Taylor Stitch is the latest “military” jacket from the brand. As anyone who’s been in the armed forces will tell you, the term “military-grade” doesn’t necessarily translate to “super high quality.” Gear issued to service personnel is meant to do a job and do it well, but it’s not necessarily meant to last the rest of your life or be the most comfortable thing you’ve ever pulled on.
Military-inspired, however, in the right hands can be a dream. Taylor Stitch has a long history of casting military style and utility in quality, custom fabrics with high-end manufacturing. Made with waxed canvas from Scotland’s Halley Stevensons, it’ll keep you dry when the storm rolls in. Then there are the details: Twill lining, corduroy collar, two-way zipper, reinforced shoulders, pockets everywhere.
Like much of the best stuff from Taylor Stitch, the Field Jacket is a Workshop item, crowd-funded by you and available in a few months with a nice 20 percent discount for your early purchase. This one will ship out in November and there’s still two weeks left to get in on the Workshop funding.
