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.
Denim, how we love thee. Yet like a perpetually new crush, we are also routinely confused by thee. Why has though wrought such travesties as muffin-tops, saggy knees and mortifying mom butt? To help us answer these questions, buy better denim, make it last longer and just generally revive our love affair with this most wonderful of fabrics, we turned to the capable stylists at San Francisco-based Beyond Black.
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.
Desperate for denim? We’re giving away 30 (that’s right, count ’em) $50 gift cards good for use at the Warehouse Sale featuring Rock & Republic, which kicks off in Union Square on Black Friday.
Not long ago, I spent the day following around a pair of jeans so simple yet so well crafted that I wished I were a boy. You see, Kent Denim is a raw denim brand for men created by Noah Landis.
