On those breezy summer nights when your whole crew is donning a denim trucker jacket and you don’t want to end up looking like a sheep, consider a chore coat.
Epaulet delivers a great summer outer layer with its Doyle Jacket. Cut more like a sport coat than a boxy workwear uniform, this coat is made with 12oz. American duck canvas which makes it a solid year-round jacket. It fits slim and can be dressed up or down at will. But like any good piece of workwear-inspired clothing, the chore coat has plenty of useful pockets that have been secured with both hidden rivets and stitched bar-tacks. So even though this coat looks and fits like a suit jacket, it can take anything you can dish out.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Tweed is moving out of grandpa’s closet and into yours. If you haven’t gotten on board yet, start with a pair of pants in the fabric and wear them with anything and everything instead of jeans. These Epaulet Donegal trousers aren’t itchy like that pair you found in the thrift shop—they’re soft and have a slim-but-not-too-slim cut that’s perfect for the office.
Epaulet never runs short of luxury sneakers and we’re glad for it. This time the NY store releases these Sport Trainers, inspired by 1970s athletic shoes for the German army. While we can’t tell just what those army shoes looked like, the end result from Epaulet surely seems to have hit the spot.
Epaulet’s Rivet Chino is definitely not menswear’s best-kept secret. This is – no joke – the fifth time Well Spent has featured some version of the pant. But it’s for good reason: they’re affordable, classic and now available in lightweight, 8 oz. cotton canvas. The newest batch comes in a selection of muted colors that will help you transition into spring, summer and back again (personally, I think the Fatigue is where it’s at). So no secrets here; just think of this as your friendly restock reminder for some of the best pants on the market.
