Garments Questions

Why do things sell out so fast?

We regularly use deadstock fabrics and rare materials, which restricts our manufacturing runs. We have a collection of Essentials that we try to always keep in stock. The best way to make sure you are in the know about our releases is to sign up for our newsletter.

Do you restock sold out items?

We try to always keep garments from our Essentials collection in stock.

When demand is strong enough for a Limited product that sells out, we will likely remake it. The best way to let us know that you want to bring a product back is to click into the sold out product, select your size, click the “Notify Me” button, and enter your email. You will then be alerted the moment the product is available to purchase.

How much stretch can I expect from raw denim? Should I order the same size in pants and denim?

Raw denim is stiff because it has not been washed. While it won't flatter your hips and butt at first, it will mold to your body over time.

Out of the box, your denim should fit snugly at the waist because it will stretch-out up to 1" over the first month of consistent wear. That said, we recommend you purchase one waist size smaller than you typically wear.

After some wear and a wash or two, the denim will rise about 1/2" in length. If you decide to hem your denim straightaway, we suggest adding an extra inch on the hem.

For bottoms that are not denim, choose your normal pant size. If you have any questions about how the brand you wear relates to ours, our Customer Experience team is happy to help!

How should I care for a pair of raw denim?

There are a lot of theories out there about how to best care for raw denim. We like to keep things simple: wash your jeans when they start to smell or feel greasy. Nobody appreciates smelly jeans, and a buildup of dirt speeds up the break-down of the fibers in the fabric. Neither are good for your jeans.

When washing your jeans, start by turning them inside out. Fill a bucket or your bath-tub with cool water, and stir in some mild detergent or dish soap. Fully submerge your jeans into the water, gently moving them around to fully soak them. Let them sit for thirty minutes. When you remove the jeans from the water, press the fabric (do not wring) to get the majority of the water out. Hang your jeans to dry (a drying rack or shower rod will do).

Why are all the inseams on your pants the same?

The inseams on all of our men's pants are 36" so that you can cuff or hem to your desired length. We do not hem pants ordered online because we want to be absolutely sure the pants fit before alteration (alteration would make the pants non-returnable). We do offer free hems if you are local and can bring the pants into either of our San Francisco store locations. The turnaround time for a hem is approximately one week.

What if a product I purchased needs repair?

Please send us an email at and include your name, order number, and the reason for repair. We will then issue you return postage and turn your repair around as quick as possible. Please note that repairs take up to four weeks when transit time is factored in.

Fit Questions

What is the difference between Democratic and Slim fits?

Our Democratic fit is a tailored fit for guys with athletic legs. Unless you know that you need a much trimmer pant, we suggest trying out our Democratic fit when first purchasing our pants. Our Slim fit is tighter through the thigh and lower leg. It’s a fit made for guys with especially lean legs. Both fits offer a medium rise with shape to keep the back waistband against your skin.

How do I know my shirt size?

Each product has its own Fit Guide. Our shirts are sized by chest measurement, so get out your measuring tape or take a peek at the size inside your favorite blazer. Sizes are converted on the product page, but for quick reference, a 36 is an XS, 38 is a S, 40 is a M, 42 is a L, 44 is a XL and 46 is an XXL.

Our fit guides give actual garment measurements and our garments fit true to size. A basic rule when figuring out your TS size is to go off your true chest or waist measurement. For example, if your chest measures 40 inches around the widest part, you should order a size 40 / M shirt. If your actual waist is 32 inches around, you should order a size 32 in our pants (or a 31 in raw denim).

How do your shirts fit?

We worked hard to create the perfect-fitting shirt. With a trimmer body, a higher arm hole and a tail length that looks smart both tucked and untucked, we believe that we've discovered the sharpest and most versatile modern, everyday shirt. Though we try to keep sizing standardized across every shirt we release, there are some exceptions, especially when it comes to fabric varieties. We suggest referencing the Fit Guide and Specs before ordering an item, and for specific product questions, you can always email Customer Service.

Can I count on ordering the same size shirt every time a new one is released?

Once you nail down your shirt size, we want it to be as easy as possible for you to order without hesitation. Our goal as a company is to make quality shirts that are guaranteed to fit across various fabrics. On occasion, our shirts can very slight vary in sizing due to their handmade construction and the natural variability of fabric composition.

Workshop Questions

What is the Workshop?

The Workshop is our crowd funding platform for new products.

How does it work?

We design a new collection of products and release them in the Workshop for crowd funding on Wednesdays (Women’s) and Thursdays (Men’s). A product is available for crowd funding for a two week period, during which you can place an order for a given product at a discounted price before it enters production. Products that reach their funding goal are manufactured and delivered!

Why should I participate?

By participating in the Workshop, you get to help bring Taylor Stitch designs to life. You also get to lock in pre-sale discounts that average more than 20%. There is the chance that products sell out in the crowd fund period as well, so participating can guarantee that you get your size.

How long is the funding period?

A Workshop collection’s funding campaign lasts two weeks. 

How long does it take to deliver products?

With every Workshop product, we include an estimated shipping date. Generally this is between six and eight weeks. However, difficulties in manufacturing can arise and in those cases, we'll be in touch as soon as we can to update you if our original projection is incorrect.

When am I actually billed?

We’ll charge your card upon checkout.

What happens if a product doesn’t reach its goal?

Products almost always reach their funding goal. In the rare event a Workshop product does not, we’ll be in touch to let you know if we decide to make the products anyhow or to provide you a full refund. 

Can I just wait for the product to land at retail? 

Of course. You just won’t be able to lock in pre-sale pricing and there is a chance it may sell out.  

Ordering Questions

Can I make a change to an order after it’s been placed online?

If you’d like to make a change—such as request a different size, make a change to your shipping address, or cancel your order—just email us at

Can TS hem a pair of pants ordered online before shipping them out?

Unfortunately, we do not hem pants ordered online. You can visit one of our shop locations for a free hem on any pair of Taylor Stitch pants.

Can a custom order be made online?
