Corduroy Tweed

Epaulet have outdone themselves again.  Their new Corduroy Tweed Walt Trousers are as next level as they are exclusive - 16 pairs were produced in the one-off batch.  The pants were woven in Italy (made in NYC) from a 100% cotton fabric called "corduroy tweed".  What the hell does that mean? Well, from a distance the pants look like your average pair of cords, but with a much better cut of course.  Up close, on the other hand, you can see the individual yarns woven in a pattern of blue, grey, tan and olive similar to your common tweed.  They're kinda like the trouser equivalent to those magic eye things that almost made me blind as a kid.  Epaulet's trousers have quickly gained a reputation for not only fitting incredibly well (I prefer their Walt fit to their Rudy fit), but for the sheer craftsmanship that goes into each pair.  Just check out the waistband.  These pants, specifically, are the perfect understated overstatement you could ever want in a pair of F/W trousers.  And that right there folks is what we call a sartorial mindfu...

  5. No cuffs on the tweed. They're country pants, and you don't want to get briars and dirt and crap in your cuffs while out strolling across your estate and hunting pheasants.

  8. Apocryphally, you DO want cuffs on country trou to keep your pants out of the mud. The origin doesn't really matter, but I like cuffs on most pants.
