Where the runway meets the street

It’s cool how NY and Taylor Supply rhyme, right? Probably the reason the company chose to produce all their garments in the Big Apple…

Bad lines aside (i.e. those words above), the real reason for local production is a genuine appreciation for manufacture and a desire to get up close and personal with the process. Though much of the fabric is sourced from Japanese mills, the Taylor Supply team takes great pride in knowing their factories. This may seem par for the course these days, but the idea remains important.

For Spring 2010 they’ve worked from an early 2oth-century industrial/nautical theme. The jackets we’re showing are the Hillclimber and the Whaler. No prizes for guessing that the jacket with anchor buttons is the whaler.

Check them out after the leap.
