Not Your Uncle’s Separates
We’ve all seen the department store placards before: “Suit Pieces Sold Separately,” “Sold As Separates,” “Buy the Jacket and Trouser Together and Save.” An admirable practice of menswear merchants that’s been around since at least the 50s, the ability to buy either the jacket or the trouser distinct from each other has allowed men to expand the more buttoned-up sides of their closet as they most deem fit. (Let’s be honest, it also makes for a considerably less daunting experience.)
Right in line with that vein of American practicality, we’ve been designing and selling our Telegraph Suits with this m.o. in mind since the very start. Whether 2015’s Herringbone fleck in two ways, 2016’s classic 15-oz. Woolen solids, or this year’s British Khaki and Evergreen, it’s always been crucial to us to maintain this, for lack of a better word, duality of purpose. Or as we like to call it, transitional utility.
You want to wear the Telegraph Jacket with your favorite ‘68 Democratic Jeans? Go right ahead. You want to wear the Telegraph Trouser with your favorite Heavy Bag Tee? You won’t find us stopping you. A pair of Common Projects on your feet, or your classic Brogues—it’s all up to you to make the most of your closet. We just provide the tools to get you there.
After all, that’s the point of the clothes you’ll find from Taylor Stitch.
Strong together. Strong apart.
