LITTLE BLACK CABIN - TAHOE
Not even the late Bob Ross can paint a picture as happy as the Little Black Cabin sitting near the shores of Lake Tahoe. The foundation dates back to the 1940s, but the framework and amenities have updated with the latest of modern design. The kitchen was built to satisfy a master chef’s true desires and the 1000 sqft deck is an absolute palace day or night. There is enough sleeping for four, an interior wood-burning fireplace and outdoor fire pit, and nestled in the surrounding timber, you’ll be contacting the host to extend your stay. The Little Black Cabin will define your standards of rentals and will boast your inherent call to the wild.
A 7 oz blend of wool and polyester, the Wilton Jacket is primed for a weekend away, strolling through the tall timber. It’s the perfect jacket to pack in the weekender knowing as the sun sets, the temps will drop. The 80 gram 100% recycled polyester fill stitched to a 100% Brushed Organic Cotton provides the warmth and comfort of the blanket you’ve always longed for. The chest pocket is great for quick access necessities and the two lower welted pockets are the ultimate hand warmers. This jacket has the style for city streets and thrives in the cabin woods, the wave quilt stitch is easy on the eyes, and buttoned from the top to the bottom, the Wilton Jacket is worthy.
PACKABLE ROAD WARRIOR
The perfect travel companion—if the hat look is for the next day—because the Road Warrior is soft enough to collapse into your weekender and holds its own when it’s time to hit the road. It has a classic look that elevates your fall flannel and will be the perfect match for the best denim your wardrobe has to offer. The Road Warrior has the character of a classic F150, the style of a Ferrari FF, and without fail, it will turn heads once released into the wild.
Heading to the mountains for the weekend, you’re going to need a shirt for adventure, and for later that night passing the bottle around the campfire. The Moto shirt is stitched from 8oz 100% cotton and is one of the most rugged and versatile shirts from the TS collection. The design leaves nothing to the imagination and the shorter cut is meant to be worn untucked. It’s a choice shirt to layer and wear while throwing around the ax. With a weekend cabin getaway on the books, best to double-check the Moto Shirt is packed tight in the duffle.
No matter how well your pants fit, a well-crafted belt will undoubtedly take your look to the next level. The Billy Belt is handcrafted from a studio in Asheville, NC by the very talented hands of Billy Moore himself. It’s cut from natural veg tan leather and has a lid brass buckle with an antique brass finish. Hand made in the U.S., the Billy Belt is a durable and stylish piece to complete your attire.
A pant that can handle the garage, the city streets, and the call of the mountains, the Slim Chino is an everyday pant for every man. There is just enough spandex woven into this cotton chino that playtime can come in realtime. And while this pant is defined as slim, there is still more than enough room in the pockets to carry your EDC. A sophisticated look for the boardroom, the comfort to withstand the I-80 traffic to the lake, and the durability for a weekend in the woods, the TS Slim Chino was stitched to work hard and play even harder.
Keys in the pocket are a thing of the past, nowadays hooked to your belt loop. With 100% raw brass, the fear of losing sus llaves will quickly disappear. The brass will patina with time and this Keyhook will double as the ultimate fidget spinner. The Keyhook was machined to minimize bulk, free up your pockets, and boost the appearance of your EDC.
Finding a good boot can be tough, but if you’re looking for a great boot look no further than the TS Moto Boot. It’s a sleek cap-toe design for both style and durability, with a weatherproof snuff suede to ward off the elements. The boot sits on top of a Goodyear-welted Vibram sole which means this Moto Boot is built for comfort all-day and every day. And no matter if adventure calls from the city streets or surrounding timber, the TS Moto Boot is keen on exploration.
Anytime you call a foreign residence home for the weekend or extended stay, it’s important to pack the essentials just in case the rental doesn’t have the “shit” drawer. And because some nights simply call for a good wine fade, the TS Wine Key is crafted to assist in your vino hydration. It’s a functioning dual bottle opener with a serrated stainless steel foil cutter and brass handle that will take note of your weathered journey. We’ve all put a wine bottle in the heel of a sneaker to beat against a stump or carefully positioned a 22 oz on the table’s edge, but if you carry the TS Wine Key you’ll just hope is there another bottle to open.
MISSON MERCANTILE CAMPAIGN DUFFLE
Needless to say that if you’re heading anywhere, you’re going to need a duffle suited for the adventure, and the Campaign Duffle is said bag. It expands and constricts with your escapes requirements and is crafted from an 18oz weather-resistant waxed canvas — it’s nearly bombproof. Durable full-grain U.S. cowhide vegetable-tanned leather defines the soft side construction with metal hardware to piece everything together. It’s got the pockets you need to keep everything neat and tidy, is stitched with marine-grade polyester thread, and whether the weekend calls for a black-tie or wooded flannel, the Campaign Duffle will get you there in style.
CYTIES X TAYLOR STITCH PLAYLIST
We’ve put together a stack of tracks, offering the ideal soundtrack to any fall filled adventure that has a view or a crackling fire. Though ours will be echoing off the lake, it’s really for any cozy setting with warm company. We hope this music guides the way through autumn and into winter, transporting you when you find time to kickback. Now, it’s time to turn the smartphones off and disappear under some Tahoe stars. Cheers from the Taylor Stitch and CYTIES team, we just poured a whiskey to toast all journeys worth packing up for.
