At times, it’s not hard to imagine yourself having a classic piece of menswear for a long, long time — take the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket, part of the recently relaunched Taylor Stitch Moto Collection (and available for a limited time only via pre-funding in the brand’s Workshop).
The Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket is easily one of the best leather jackets we’ve ever seen, blending all the style points and credibility you’d expect from the newly iconic San Francisco-based brand. We say “newly iconic” because in just over a decade in business, Taylor Stitch has quickly developed a knack for giving its customers exactly what they want, every single time.
The approach revolves around taking menswear classics — like the chambray shirt, or dark denim, or slim chinos, or even a handsome leather jacket — and upgrading them in a way that works for the modern man.
Think better fits, better fabric, custom hardware and impeccable styling potential — that can be said for the whole line of consistently excellent Taylor Stitch gear, and it’s also especially fitting for the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket and Moto Collection overall. The thing with Taylor Stitch menswear is that it’s reliable, dependable, and always ready to go, whether you’re looking for a rugged jacket to wear out on the weekend or a classic Oxford shirt to wear to the office.
The even better thing about Taylor Stitch is that the brand’s whole line of clothing is ready to be mixed and matched with ease. Take, for instance, this richly crafted moto jacket — it’s as if it was designed to be worn with Taylor Stitch’s classic chambray shirt and slim tan chinos, or perhaps its inky blue indigo denim and a henley made from upcycled fabric. It’s simply that essential, and it’s got the specs and design chops to prove it (if you’ve previously picked up a Taylor Stitch moto jacket in a different color, you know this to be true). And helpfully, the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket is just as versatile and dependable.
Available for a discounted pre-funding rate of $875 (a downright steal for a soon-to-be legendary leather moto jacket), this particular piece of outerwear hits it out of the park on all fronts.
We particularly love the rich Loden Steerhide leather, a new take on the fan favorite Taylor Stitch moto design. Like past iterations of the remarkable Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket, this year’s model (in spite of the new color option) is based around a classic Golden Bear leather cafe racer jacket, a decades-old design that still manages to feel incredibly modern and fresh, thanks to the slim fit, the tough YKK antique brass zippers, and the out-of-this-world styling potential. This new, revamped addition to the Taylor Stitch line takes handmade craftsmanship to the next level — there’s simply not another leather jacket like it on the planet.
In Espresso or Whiskey Steerhide, this moto jacket would wear beautifully with the aforementioned classic white Oxford and slim blue denim (along with a pair of Taylor Stitch moto boots for good measure). It’s simply a classic in every sense of the word, crafted with Thinsulate insulation and flannel-lined pockets for added wearability even when it gets chilly outside. This rugged moto jacket is also a perfectly road-ready piece of outerwear, whether or not you’ve got a chopper at your disposal.
Wear it for a fall weekend getaway or use it to haul your everyday carry essentials on a commute — the Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket really can handle anything and everything you throw at it, and you’ll have it for years to come. You can tell that much just by looking at that, so don’t sleep on pre-funding your new favorite leather jacket.
