On a ballsy scale between 1 and 10, we give an official Chaps endorsement an 8.5. (That’s pretty ballsy.) At least in the image department, it’s a brand most guys associate with traumatizing walks through florescent-lit aisles of ill-fitting, ferociously uninspired sportswear. But, images are often deceiving, and we have tons of respect for Valet. Magazine, which just mistook this $35 Chaps nylon hunting vest for a Michael Bastian. Consider our interest piqued.
