Banana Republic Partners with Taylor Stitch


Menswear and San Francisco go together like a well stitched seam, as this bay city boasts some of the most original and fashionable mens clothing designers. That being said, it isn't a huge surprise that San Francisco's own Banana Republic flagship store on Grant Avenue decided to collaborate with the popular local tailors, Taylor Stitch, to launch a new shop-in-shop featuring their beautifully constructed ready-to-wear and custom made shirts. Founders and co-owners Michael Maher, Barrett Purdum, and Michael Armenta, are excited about the collaboration which began after Banana Republic's senior merchandiser, Tom Gerard visited their Valencia Street location last Christmas to buy a shirt. After thoroughly enjoying the experience, the two companies went back and forth, and now Talyor Stitch's gorgeous designs will be available in B.R.'s flagship store for the next 18 weeks.

The clever and vintage inspired display at Banana Republic will offer not only a fine selection of their collection but also the aide of Taylor Stitch's trained staff to assist those wanting something custom made from one of the many fabric and pattern choices available. Be sure to stop by and browse the dapper looks, and remember, many may think that there is nothing better than a man in a suit, but in reality there is nothing sexier than a man in a well-made shirt.
