The rising folk rock star’s new clothing capsule benefits social justice causes.
It’s not too much of a stretch to say that timeless, soulful music and equally soulful, expertly crafted menswear are the perfect match. Care and attention to detail are evident in iconic songs and iconic gear, and that’s why the new Taylor Stitch x Nathaniel Rateliff Better Together Capsule is a match made in sonic and style heaven.
The Better Together Capsule is perfectly suited to the demands of the road, featuring handsome and rugged updates to four Taylor Stitch classics. It helps that these pieces look all the better when worn by the rising folk rocker and his roaring and raucous band, The Night Sweats.
The capsule’s mission runs deeper than outfitting you for your next rock concert, although it does a fine job in that regard, too.
Taylor Stitch x Nathaniel Rateliff benefits The Marigold Project, launched by Rateliff in 2017 to tackle social, racial and economic injustice by working with organizations across the country, (like 2020 grantee Denver Urban Gardens in the Missouri-born singer’s adopted hometown).
Rateliff and The Night Sweats, through hard-won years on the road, touch on R&B, soul and folk while packing arenas and stadiums across the country. As luck would have it, they’ve returned to the stage this fall promoting a new album, the uplifting The Future. It’s an at-times soothing, at times-rocking antidote to the struggles of the pandemic.
If a recent tour stop at NYC’s hallowed Beacon Theatre is any indication, the new album is a certified crowd-pleaser, especially alongside tried-and-true hits. The show (which hits Denver for two outings next month) is an up-on-your-feet toast and tribute to great times and great music.
It helps that menswear for a worthy cause is music to our ears, and the capsule collection is an encore-worthy addition to your own wardrobe.
Throw on the gets-better-with-age Lined Long Haul Trucker Jacket, a beautiful sand suede trucker jacket that’s especially at home atop the Better Together Cotton Hemp Tee, adorned with a graphic celebrating The Marigold Project.
The washed organic cotton Better Together Western Shirt is another rock show-ready layer within the collection, and you can amp things up even further with the Western Shirt in Espresso Suede, a beautiful overshirt you can (and should) wear to grab a post-show whiskey.
However you choose to wear the Better Together Capsule Collection, and whether you plug into the soulful music of Nathaniel Rateliff at home or on the road, you can rest easy knowing you’re looking great and giving back all the while.
