  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Made in England by Albion.

NB: I have over 450 other pieces of classic menswear available for sale on SF; to see them please check the "Most Active Sellers" list on the left of the first page of the Classified Listings, and click my username, "tweedydon"--the one at the top! :)
Size c. 36, 38. Measurements:

Chest: 19 1/2
Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 1/4)
Shoulder: 16 3/4
Length: 28 3/4

This is wonderful! Cut from classically heavy Harris Tweed in brown herringbone this jacket likely dates from the 1960s. It was Made in England by Albion, and retains its lovely interior Albion label (featuring the Rose of England) as well as its vintage Harris Tweed label.

Cut as a two-button model with darting this has three front patch pockets with lapped seams. It has a single rear vent, and features the traditional British single-button cuff. naturally, all of the buttons are leather-clad and metal-shanked. It is fully lined and fully canvassed.

This jacket is a vintage jacket, and so it does have some minor patina. There is some minor sagging and fraying to the two interior pockets' top edges, but this won't be seen when worn. The interior country or original label is also frayed. This jacket could also use a press and dry clean! As such, it is in Very Good condition, and a bargain at just $32, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome!
