  • 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.

TweedProf's Tie Cleanout: Cappelli, Drake's, Sozzi

I've exceeded my limit of 20 ties per FW or SS season so I've had to choose a few to let go. I would gladly keep all of these, but I'm over the limit.

Highest quality ties from the best makers, worn at most 5 times but most, less (a couple). All in as new condition, well taken care of from a clean home, no pets or smokers.

Cappellis are 8.5 cm wide except the raw silk which is 8cm, Vanda is 9cm, Drake's 8cm and the Sozzi is 8cm. Lengths vary from 57 to 62 inches but all tie effectively the same. Let me know if you need the exact length.

I'll knock off $3 per extra tie. Paypal only. Be an active SF member or have good B&S feedback. Pictures from my instagram showing them worn.

Price includes USPS first class shipping and paypal fees. CONUS only.

Cappelli Madder ($85)

Bespoke ties, light lining as requested by me.

Lovely dusty madders with a dry hand. Cappelli madders are 90 euros each ($110 dollars) before shipping (unless you buy 5 ties). This is self-tipped, worn a handful of times. $85

Cappelli Raw Silk (8cm) ($70)

A lovely green raw silk with large medallions. Worn well by, among others, Mr. Six and blueloafers (instagram), and of course, myself. It's a distinctive raw silk, more like a tussah than shantung. Hand rolled $70

Drake's Burgundy Repp Grenadine ($75) SOLD

Drake's Wool Striped Ties ($79 each)

NB: rust/brown block stripe and blue/green/gold rep are still available.

The first is a lovely asymmetric block stripe in rust and brown, with a little speckling, in a herringbone base. Tipped with black silk.

NB: The length is a bit long, at 62 inches. I've tied it with a four in hand (how I have worn it) and the front blade at 19 inches is a quarter of an inch shorter than the back blade. With a double four in hand, I tied it recently at 18 inches front blade and one inch shorter in the back (or presumably 19 inches front blade, two inches shorter in back). I'm not too concerned with the difference between the two lengths so long as the back blade goes no further than the front. But there it is.

The second is a unique green tie with navy and white stripes. Really outstanding. Handrolled. SOLD

The third is a navy ground with green and gold stripes, incredibly versatile, also handrolled.

Sozzi Brown Cotton Knit Tie with pointed tip. SOLD
