Far be it from me to describe an article of clothing as “perfect” – that’s a little too hyperbolic even for my bombastic self. That said, the new Modified Walt Shorts from Brooklyn’s Epaulet are about as close to perfect as you’re gonna get. Handcrafted in NYC, the shorts offer a grown-up take on a school boy staple, thanks to their inner waist curtain, taped and finished seams, and split back waistband (details usually only found in high-end trousers). Available in an array of 100% cotton fabrics (including naturally dyed Indian madras, UK-made seersucker and classic khaki twill), the slim fit shorts are as versatile as they are attractive, and will stay a favorite summer go-to for years to come.
