  • 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.

This is a lovely example of a "1970s does 1930s" beltback tweed jacket! Modelled after the beltback tweeds that were popular in the 1930s, this version was Union Made in the USA in the early 1970s.

It is two button front jacket with subtle darts. It has a single rear vent, and a sewn-on half-belt at the rear, 1930s style. All three front pockets are flapped, including the top breast pocket; the flaps are scalloped and all close with functional buttons. The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined--the lining in a wonderfully psychdelic swirling concotion in blues and creams! The jacket has single button cuffs.

The tweed of this jacket is lovely; a Donegal-style pepper and salt barleycorn base flecked with berry red with vertical blue and brown striping.

The tweed exterior is in excellent condition. Howver, there is some discoloration and fraying in the lining across the shoulders at the seam, as well as some loose stitching in the interior of the vent. This jacket could be worn as it is, or else you could patch the lining in the shoulders. It is, thus, in overall Good/Very Good condition, and a bargain at just $25, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
