I'd like to introduce our latest affiliate, Epaulet ( www.epauletnewyork.com ).
Epaulet is a men and women's boutique in Brooklyn opened in 2008 by Adele, a former assistant buyer and a modern dancer, and Mike, a photographer and former buyer as well, which specialized in domestic and independent designers. At the heart of Epaulet is the growing in-house collection that is crafted in "small batches."
Mike and Adele try to use the best fabrics possible in the "Small batch" shirt and tie collections, which are entirely made in the United States, and sold exclusively at Epaulet. The philosophy is that by selling direct to customers, Epaulet is able to offer beautiful, well-crafted items at very good prices.
In keeping with the Styleforum tradition of working closely with our affiliates, we are going to start off with two shirt designs made exclusively for Styleforum. There will be 20 of each shirt made based on the member feedback on several fabrics, collar styles, and button types that Mike and I have narrowed down. The polling will be conducted in both Men's Clothing and Streetwear and Denim.
