San Francisco menswear go-to Taylor Stitch has the blues, but don’t worry. They’re quite pleased about it. New on the shelves of the Mission shop and in the online store this week is the debut collection of Taylor Stitch denim. And talk about local: each of the three men’s styles is designed, cut and sewn in San Francisco within 10 blocks of the label’s store.
It should come as no wonder that denim is in San Francisco’s blood – after all, the town gave birth to a little company called Levi’s back in 1853. But now more than ever, San Francisco is becoming a hub for small, independent denim labels that rival the freshest denim sources anywhere in the world.
