Fall is officially here and New York-based Epaulet has got your back. They’re coming in strong with a handsome set of jackets, all of them priced to raise an eyebrow or two. The one closest to our rope-dyed hearts is Essex Denim Jacket. It’s their take on a Type III jacket, made of a once-washed 13 oz. Kaihara denim and is as classic as a jean jacket can be with a single, subtle twist – the collar. Rather than the conventional pointed collar, Epaulet took the liberty of softening the points into a semi-club collar. Aside from that, it’s equipped with all the features typical of a Type III: waist-adjusters, dual breast pockets, hand pockets, and even a little more. Made in Los Angeles, available for $145.
The rest of their lineup is a team of varsity jackets they dub the Thorpe Varsity Jacket. The body is made of Navy-worthy 22 oz. melton wool that’s dense enough to shield you from the wind. Buttery full-grain Italian calfskin is used for the sleeves and trim. Some of the features include two besom pockets, horn buttons, and interior pocket. It comes in four different color combos, all available for $495.
