Epaulet Rivet Chino Japanese Twill

    5/5,
    "Super soft, great value"
    Pros - Fit, quality of construction
    Cons - slightly faster wear
    The Japanese Twill in gunmetal was my first pair of Epaulet Chinos. As usual the fit is spot on and the construction is great. The fabric is very soft and comfortable. Perhaps because of the softness of the fabric these seem to wear a little faster, I'm getting some denim style fades in places.

    These are my go-to casual pant in the fall.

    4/5,
    "Epaulet Rivet Chino - Gunmetal"
    Pros - Quality, Cut, Value
    Cons - Drape, Color
    Epaulet's rivet chino is a staple item. The gunmetal color is very popular and almost instantly sells out upon restock.

    I had to stalk the discussion thread to get myself a pair in a popular size. The first thing I noticed out of the box was that the material was considerably softer than I expected. This is the softest twill I've seen on a chino. This definitely affects the draping, since it drapes more like a pair of trousers than a pair of denim. Personally, I prefer a more rigid chino, but I know the softness is very well received. :nodding:

    Next, the quality is noticeable. The material, lining, the rivets, the stitching all impress. I've only had it for a few months, but I can definitely see this piece lasting.

    Lastly, the color. This is a very popular color, because, I can imagine, most people already have a pair of navy and khaki chinos and they want something different--but not too different. I would have liked a more greyish color, but the chino appears more olive.

    As for the price. It's obviously more expensive than mall brands, but significantly cheaper than SF-approved brands like Wings + Horns, BoO, Unis, etc. I will definitely be in the market to pick up another pair in the future.
