The Epaulet Red Floral ShirtBy Jeffrey Hyatt
I admit I’m not always down with the floral print apparel. But that doesn’t mean my wardrobe can’t make room for one as sweet as the floral print design coming from Epaulet. The standard slim-fit shirt, made up in a nice printed UK cloth, shows off a likable tight pattern of floral, making it a shirt I can easily match with jeans or chinos.
And maybe because it’s getting warmer out, but the shirt just has a spring-y, summer-y vibe working. The floral short features a mid-length tail, which looks good looks good tucked or un-tucked. Its 100% Pima cotton fabrication is soft and comfortable. The shirt’s barrel cuffs close with a single button. A left chest pocket is perfectly matched to the shirt body.
The Brooklyn-based Epaulet opened in 2008 featuring all sorts of men’s and women’s boutique apparel and accessories.
The Red Floral Shirt runs $140 (get it here). You could make the case the floral shirt design is too loud, but I feel it’s subtle enough overall not to freak anyone out when you walk into the bar – beach or city. Spring is in the air, and the more I look at it the better I like it. [via por homme]
