J. Crew pay careful attention to creating that hip, hyper-excited tone. You've personed up on this one.

Isn't "shoulder epaulets" redundant? French "épaule" means "shoulder" and even people who don't know that have surely never seen epaulets anywhere else, have they? Or maybe the copywriter feared unmodified "epaulets" would puzzle some readers.
