Summer might still be having one last hurrah, but Fall is right around the corner. That means layering – the easiest way to stay warm but be able to shed layers throughout the day, when things get warm. And to put them back on in the evening when the weather cools back down. The first piece you’ll need? A good Fall Jacket. This year, try a casual, parka-inspired hoodie jacket like The Taylor Stitch Winslow Parka.
Winslow Parka: Waxed Canvas Ready For Fall
Parka’s are generally winter jackets, but lighter versions – without the 0F insulation – can be perfect for chilly Fall days and evenings, as the weather turns. The Winslow gets this. The exterior is a custom-developed waxed canvas from Halley-Stevenson – a waterproof, weatherproof fabric that repels water. Waxed canvas is natural – using beeswax used – offers a much more classic vibe than DWR-coated nylons and synthetic shells. (Waxed canvas often lasts longer, too.)
Instead of full-blown winter insulation, Taylor Stitch lined it with a 22 oz 62% recycled wool/38% nylon blanket lining – warm enough for chilly days but breathable enough for milder ones. Wool is natural moisture-wicking and odor-resistant, of course.
Made in UK
It’s stylish, vintage-inspired and sure to last many years of wear to come. Just like most of Taylor Stitch’s best stuff. Handmade in the UK.
