Have you ever wanted broader shoulders? Have you ever desired to lead a 17th century army with Xena flair? Do your pesky shoulder straps slip every now and then? This epaulette is for you.
Originally worn to prop up shoulder straps, and later worn by French armies to indicate rank, the cloth equivalent of this counter-epaulette was once a distinguishing feature of an 18th century officer. Today, a warlike individual may wear this item grocery shopping and/or to Burning Man, without fear of retribution by his/her local armed forces, so count your blessings and epaulette-up while the getting is good.
