Just in time for the freaking nicest day of the year (in NYC at least)! This morning Epaulet announced the drop of the most recent run of their in-house EP’s jeans line.
Aside from introducing a new and slightly looser fit (the Hoyt) the Brooklyn shop is now offering the spot-on, slim-straight Smith fit in a 12.5 oz. Natural Line Selvage indigo denim from Cone Mills‘ White Oak plant in NC. It’s very similar to an APC New Standard fit, but you don’t have to worry about insane stretching issues (bonus!).
The denim is considerably lighter than the first run of the Indigo Smiths (which was 14 oz.), so it’s a good bet for Spring. This new run is also the first time that the EP’s Smith has featured classic contrast stitching. So for everyone out there that didn’t want to pull the trigger on the original monochrome versions, here’s your chance to get at these jeans.
Some additional details (consistent with the last run, but still great): Gunmetal donut buttons, button fly, riveted front pockets and bartacked back pockets, hickory stripe pocket bags, and a stamped cowhide “EP’s” patch on the back waistband. All made in downtown LA.
As a proud owner of a pair from the first run, I can assure you that $145 is a freaking steal for these jeans.
Click over to Epaulet’s online shop to score a pair now if you’re good with a 34″ inseam. Otherwise, contact them to put your pair with a 35″ inseam on hold. That run is arriving around 5/25.
