In case you didn’t already know, I’m a big (BIG) fan of Brooklyn’s Epaulet. Such a fan, in fact, that I actually make a point of limiting how often I cover their products on the site, because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t write about any thing else. It’s not just that the store’s in-house line looks great and is excellently – and responsibly – made (although that is a big part of the appeal), it’s also that it is consistently one of the best deals in menswear. Case in point: the new Kurabo Redline Selvedge Smith Jeans. Part of their EP’s collection, the KRSJs are sedulously crafted in Los Angeles from natural indigo dyed Kurabo Mills redline selvedge denim, and come in the label’s signature slim-without-being-skinny Smith cut (suddenly their name is making a little more sense, yeah?). Features include a button fly (made with gunmetal donut buttons), hickory-stripe pocket liners, a genuine cowhide patch, and a fifth pocket that’s sized to accommodate credit cards and cash, for you no-wallet types. However, the real kicker? Their price. A near perfect pair of every day jeans, US-made from premium Japanese selvedge denim, for under $150. I mean, how could I possibly refrain from writing about that?
