Most people don’t know this, but it was 136° in New York today. That probably sounds made up—and I should note that I’m only a meteorologist by hobby—but that’s what it felt like. Does that scream flannel season? Not really, but the Epaulet Nagoya Stripe flannel Chainstitch Shirts won’t ship until October, so there won’t be any pressure to take it out during these trying times.
Crafted in Los Angeles from an intricate 7oz., Japanese-milled, 100% cotton flannel fabric, the fall-ready shirts feature a spread collar, corozo nut buttons, matching patch pockets at the chest and a mid-length tail. They’re cut in an “athletic slim fit,” and come in two colorways—called Ironside and Brass Monkey, because why not—that should allow for some layering versatility when the weather actually warrants it.
If you like it, though, you better move quick: Epaulet only secured enough fabric to make 30 of each.
Available for $185 at Epaulet.
