A part of our Epaulet Los Angeles collection, the Buttondown is our basic woven shirt. We start with a long-staple American supima oxford cloth. After the shirt is sewn, it's run through a light enzyme wash and a salt bath. The result is a perfectly softened garment with a natural, un-distressed look. Starting with a quality fabric helps the shirt maintain the sturdy feel and drape of a proper OCBD (oxford cloth button-down) while still offering the washed-down, casual style of our EPLA collection. We're confident that it will be one of the most comfortable shirts that you've ever worn. The color is classic light blue.
This item is fully pre-shrunk and machine washable. The Buttondown shirt's details include: compact buttondown collar, flat felled shoulder seams, single chest pocket, and antique resin buttons. As with everything we make, this shirt has Epaulet's signature slim fit.
Epaulet Los Angeles shirting is designed to be a casual counterpart to our Epaulet New York products. Made from start to finish at our workshop in Downtown LA, each piece is largely hand-made by a small team of craftspeople.
EPLA shirt sizing is intended to be consistent with our Epaulet New York shirts, but it does run a bit more slim. If you comfortably take a medium in our EPNY shirts, you will most likely take a medium in this. If a medium feels very fitted, then we would advise going up one size for a better fit. All EPLA pieces are pre-washed to remove shrinkage, so the fit that you receive will be accurate. We still recommend cold wash and hang drying for care. These fabrics are designed to age beautifully with wear, and hang drying will allow a natural fade to develop.
