As any Olive Garden restuarant will prove, American takes on Italian classics don’t always turn out so great. Fortunately, the Americans doing the take in this particular instance are also the founders of one of the best menswear shops in the country. The new Napoli Unstructured Sportcoats from Brooklyn’s Epaulet are expertly made in Massachusetts by Southwick. Soft-shouldered and slim-fitting, the Italo-style jackets combine the best of both cultures, like a bald eagle applauding hot blondes on the street.
