Field Tested: 24 Hours with the Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket

A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to test out some new product from one of my favorite brands, Taylor Stitch. I received the two colorways of their Maritime Shirt Jacket in Navy and Ash.

The jacket is made with a 19 oz. Italian boiled lambswool. I was blown away by how sturdy it is compared to the photos I had seen of it. It is much closer to an outwear piece than as a shirt. 

Due to its warmth and water-resistance, lambswool has for centuries been turned to to outfit even the most extreme expeditioners. (It’ll absorb twice its weight in water before reaching its saturation point; on a rainy day, it’s worth its weight in gold.)
