It’s a match made in San Francisco—Banana Republic and local clothier Taylor Stitch have come together to create one ultra-cool custom-shirting collaboration.
Made in the USA, this limited-edition collection is exclusively available at our San Francisco Grant Street Flagship. Ready to play designer? It’s quick and easy—just choose your fabric, collar, buttons and pockets, etc. and create your own custom shirt with the perfect fit.
Recently, Angela Tafoya of Refinery 29 interviewed Milo Slattery, our VP of merchandising to get the details on how this collaboration came together.
AT: How did this collaboration come about?
MS: The concept originated the end of last year when two of Banana Republic mens’ merchants visited the Taylor Stitch store and fell in love with their classic RTW shirts and impressive range of custom fabrics. Banana Republic takes pride in consistently providing customers with well tailored pieces, so to work together on a capsule seemed like a natural fit.”
AT: How important is it for you to collaborate with S.F.-based brands?
MS: We really loved the idea of collaborating with a San Francisco-based company. As you know, Gap was started right here in San Francisco by Don and Doris Fisher and Banana Republic launched in Mill Valley. We admire the entrepreneurial spirit of Taylor Stitch and think working with another S.F. company is a great way to honor our heritage.
