I know I represent for Epaulet a lot on Sartorially Inclined, but when you are absolutely kicking ass I'm not left with many options. Epaulet's in-house brand of premium denim has just hit their online and brick and mortar shops and is available for purchase. Coming in indigo, black and streaky rinses these jeans are real deal, sanforized, selvedge denim.
The indigo jeans (14oz) are made of deadstock fabric from Cone Mills' White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC (arguably the best denim in the United States) and are artisan manufactured in Los Angeles, CA. On top of the immaculate construction and fabric, Epaulet keeps branding to a minimum opting for a total lack of logos and contrast stitching. They don't skimp on the details either adding gunmetal donut buttons, riveted pockets, stitched bartacks on the rear pockets and front pockets crafted in rugged hickory-stripe cotton twill. I don't need any new denim, but I'll be damned if these aren't some of the best looking jeans I've seen in a while. Each wash was produced in a limited run so be sure to act fast. Congrats to Mike and the Epaulet crew for a job well done and the expansion of their brand.
