In a world where designers race through trends to drain your wallet, there’s something reassuring about a company focused on timeless style and enduring quality instead. While most manufacturers focus on shortening the replacement cycle, San Francisco-based clothier Taylor Stitch is committed to eliminating the replacement cycle entirely. The limited run of their small batch-manufactured Trench Boot is one of many triumphs to come of this undertaking.
Built to be rebuilt, The Trench Boot joins the ranks of buy-it-for-life mainstays with a Vibram inset mini lug sole and Goodyear Storm Welt construction. The fashion-conscious man will keep these on his feet and out of his “last season” bin year after year thanks to their timeless silhouette. Ready to wear out of the box with no break-in needed, the weatherproof suede and triple needle lockstitch construction are robust enough for any terrain. When the time comes to re-sole, a quick trip to your local cobbler will have them back on your feet in days. The small batch manufactured Taylor Stitch Trench Boots are available in limited quantity – $348
