Could we love Taylor Stitch any more? It’s always been one of our favorite menswear brands. But today, Taylor Stitch doubled down on its responsible sustainability platform with the groundbreaking announcement of Restitch, a bold buyback program to give your clothes a second life and keep them out of landfills.
“Restitch is our response to the clothing industry’s overproduction issue,” says Mike Maher, CEO and co-founder of Taylor Stitch. “85 percent of all apparel ends up in landfills …. Through Restitch, there is no end of life—only end of use.”
Restitch is quick and seamless. Just download a shipping label at taylorstitch.com or visit a Taylor Stitch retail store to drop off your old Taylor Stitch clothes. You earn Common Club credit for every donation, from $ 15-$ 25, which you can then put towards the purchase of new Taylor Stitch gear. Your old TS gear is then reconstructed into fresh, one-of-a-kind garments that are resold at a fraction of the price as part of TS’s Vintage Collection.
How Does Restitch Work?
To kick off the program, Taylor Stitch tapped its devoted community, and received nearly 1,500 garments across outerwear, denim, shirting, knits, footwear, and accessories. From that first batch, the team has selected 42 pieces for its first ever Vintage Collection. Each item is a one-of-a-kind garment. From jeans to Henleys to Chore Coats to chinos, the Vintage Collection is awesome—and it’s already selling out. But never fear. Thanks to Restitch, it’s only a matter of time before the vintage Collection is restocked with more diamonds in the rough.
Since its launch in 2008, Taylor Stitch has been committed to making the world’s best clothing in a way that is kind to the people who make it, the places they make it in, and the planet. The company deploys a hybrid selling model, the Workshop, to bet big on proven winners and mitigate making things that ultimately end up as landfill. Restitch is a continued expression of this in that the program ensures the promise of clothing built to last for the long haul, while also dramatically reducing the company’s carbon, waste, and water footprint.
