Moleskin doesn't get enough recognition. The rugged fabric often plays second banana to more prominent cold-weather textures like tweed and corduroy. Despite its durability and resistance to wind and water, the material is sometimes thought of as a stuffy winter alternative instead of a smart wardrobe staple. But that simply shouldn't be the case. To help prove our point, just take a look at Epaulet's moleskin trousers. The heavyweight cotton fabric is sourced from the United Kingdom, and has been sheared on one side for an incredibly smooth, comfortable feel. Done up in the brand's slim-straight Walt fit, the olive is especially versatile, and features construction details like taped seams and a split back waistband for easy tailoring.
