Taylor Stitch’s New Collaborates with Danner on a Limited-Edition of the Danner Ridge Boot
Taylor Stitch has collaborated with outdoor experts, Danner, to create an exclusive version of their well-known lightweight hiker, The Danner Ridge ($470). This special boot is made up of a shank, midsole, and lasting board that are all fused together into one incredibly light piece. It carries on the unyielding craftsmanship of Charles Danner’s original boots. They’ve added waxed canvas accents from Halley Stevensons and a vintage-style painted camouflage finish to give this limited-edition shoe its unique look.
Developed and crafted in the United States, The Danner Ridge in Painted Camo is a combination of classic materials and modern innovation. Its upper features olive leather, pebbled brown leather, and Painted Camo waxed canvas from Halley Stevensons in Scotland, which encases a waterproof GORE-TEX liner. Working on stitch-down construction, this shoe is attached to a Vibram® Kletterlift Thin outsole and comes with an easily removable OrthoLite footbed for ultimate comfort and easy wearing.
Filson Releases a Special-Edition long version of their iconic wool jacket.
The Filson Long Mackinaw Wool Cruiser Jacket ($1025) is designed to keep you warm in a classic style: crafted with 100% wool and extending down below the waist, it’s been a beloved item for over a century.
The Mackinaw Wool Cruiser was patented back in 1914 and has been a reliable wardrobe choice for foresters, rangers, field engineers, and sportsmen ever since. It’s long design allows it to cover up to the knees for extra warmth, while the torso lining is their signature 8-oz. Alaskan Guide flannel fabric. The sleeve lining is made of polyester twill which fits snugly over other layers you may be wearing.
The front of the jacket provides Filson’s signature Cruiser cargo pockets with hand slots tucked underneath the flap closures. For convenience, the left side of the chest comes with an additional pocket secured by buttons. The front fastens securely with a row of buttons and there are adjustable cuffs to complete the look.
