Epaulet Los Angeles
Wilshire Jean 12 oz Lightweight Indigo Kuroki Denim


A part of our Epaulet Los Angeles collection, the Wilshire is our premium selvedge jean. Crafted from start to finish in Downtown LA, each pair is meticulously sewn in one of the finest denim factories in North America. We've taken our time to develop the jean that our customers have been looking for, and we're confident that you'll be very pleased with this piece! 

This particular jean is cut in 12oz lightweight denim from Japan's venerable Kuroki mill. Light enough to be comfortable, but still thick enough to drape and fade properly, this jean is an ideal weight for Spring through Fall in temperate climates and year-round wear in warmer climates. It has an indigo warp, a light grey weft, and a red selvedge line. It has been put through a single rinse to remove shrinkage and give a correct fit on the first wear.

The Wilshire has a sharp slim-straight fit which speaks well to the overall shape of our Rivet Chino and Walt trousers. It's mid-rise is on par with our chinos and it has a traditional five pocket configuration. The rear pockets are reinforced with hidden rivets and the hardware is antique brass. The rear patch makes for a perfect finishing detail: made of dark brown Chromexecel from the Horween tannery of Chicago, it has a subtle embossed "epla" logo. This handsome piece will develop an incredible fade with regular wear. 

EPLA Jeans
The Epaulet Los Angeles collection 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 denim sizing is intended to be consistent with our Epaulet New York Walt Trousers and Rivet Chinos. So if you take a 32 in the Walts/Rivets, then you will most likely take a 32 in this. If the 32 Walt/Rivet leaves you with some room, however, then chances are you can size down one to a 31 in these jeans. They will arrive pre-washed and pre-shrunk, and they are intended to stretch a bit and mold to your your body. For a correct fit, your new jean should be a bit more snug than you typically wear, but not so tight as to be overly restrictive or uncomfortable.

Quality denim such as this 12 oz Kuroki is prized for its ability to fade and evolve with wear. Although many such jeans are sold "raw," we have found that a single wash before wearing does not affect the fade that eventually occurs, while allowing for a correct, comfortable fit from day one. You'll want wear them as much as possible before washing them further. That is the key for achieving those great, high-contrast fades and whiskers.
