It’s impossible to embody Steve Mcqueen. But it’s possible to dress like the late action star.
Taylor Stitch, a California-based menswear company, has brought Steve McQueen’s iconic denim shirt back to life. The weathered, Western-style button-down is being sold again for $125.
Not many can pull off the double denim look (also dubbed, “The Canadian Tuxedo”), but the Hollywood heartthrob always managed to do it effortlessly. The vintage, indigo washed shirt was a staple in his wardrobe that gave McQueen his famous rugged style.
The resurrected version of McQueen’s shirt is actually an upgrade, according to Airows. Taylor Stitch improved the classic by using selvage denim from Japan’s notable Yoshiwa Mills that’s been washed to imbue the heavy garment with a broken-in feel.
Cut to a length that can be worn tucked or untucked, the vintage shirt is tailored for a more snug fit, just like McQueen wore it. It also has some refined details like antique pearl buttons.
Taylor Stitch’s homage to the King of Cool’s go-to shirt sells for $125.
