I’ve been anxiously awaiting this one all week, and it certainly does not disappoint: The Vanson x Epaulet Waxed Triton Jacket. Take a look.
Yep. That is one goddamn handsome jacket.
Made of heavyweight waxed cotton canvas, this piece is very water resistant, which is handy considering the whole “April showers” deal we’re all likely to be subjected to over the course of the Spring. And since that attractive Royal Stewart tartan lining is 100% cotton, the jacket will breathe, which means you won’t overheat. Again, handy. (Mike from Epaulet, who modeled the jacket in the current warm weather for the fit photos, confirmed that he was actually pretty comfortable while doing the shoot.)
More details: 4 snap-closure patch pockets (top left is slanted, or a “map pocket”); black hardware on the exterior, with a heavy gauge brass zipper underneath the storm flap; two interior button-closure pockets; heavy leather neck liner (Vanson is, after all, a leather company); buckle and strap tab closure on the collar; slightly cropped length; zero logos or branding on the exterior.
It’s $425 from Epaulet exclusively. For what you’re getting, that price is an absolute steal.
Move quick. There are only 14 units available total. (Talk about putting some truth to the whole “limited edition” idea.)
