  • 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.

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    My local tailor here in Italy makes my bespoke shirts, he runs a one man show and doesn't have a website though. They usually cost 150 Euro + the cloth (thus, still cheaper than Drake's or 100 Hands RTW). And yeah, that's the whole point of the PS cloth, it's definitely more rugged than the...

    In my opinion, nothing beats the cloth made by Canclini they sell on Permanentstyle, all my OCBD's were made with it and are still going strong years later. Gorgeous fabric that checks all the boxes.

    FRIDAY CHALLENGE - The Summer Jacket

    Here's my entry, it's titled "making contrived #menswear poses at the parking lot": Textures from upclose cause my camera sucks and picks up nothing: https://i.postimg.cc/tCdT073f/Outfit4.jpg and a bonus fit that didn't make the cut:

    Alternatives to Alden LHS (unlined penny loafers with roomy fit)?

    Greetings and salutations. I own a pair of Alden LHS in snuff suede (6243 F), absolutely love the chunkiness and aesthetic, however the last itself fits a little tight even in E width and it took me forever to break them in properly (with the help of a vamp stretcher, too) to the point that...

    House of Huntington - (Drake's, Nigel Cabourn, Private White V.C., and more) - Official Affiliate vendor thread.

    Got a Drake's piece from these guys a few months back and can totally vouch for them; the garment was legit and in pristine conditions, the shipment was super quick and they would answer right away to inquiries made through email or instagram. Thumbs up from me.

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    Is this draping in the room with us right now? Jokes aside, I beg to differ or perhaps italian tailors are just that much better. Also, I fail to see how a tiny amount of extra weight would affect fabrics as stiff and heavy as most raw and barely washed selvedge denim. Had this been high-twist...

    all my denim jeans are hemmed. Any competent tailor can keep the original hem. Nobody would be able to tell the difference. Also, they drape just fine.

    OrSlow is the best RTW denim for tailoring by far. The back/front rise are massive and they're about the only company that makes high-waisted, high-quality washed selvedge denim that don't look messy (1 wash and 2 yrs wash particularly). RRL and Studio D'artisan are hideous in comparison. Got 3...

    They lost me when they started selling RTW tweed blazers at 1.6k € and RTW wool coats at 2k+ €. Ties are now what, 200 €+? Eh. Same goes for Bryceland's (although they have a few unique pieces that are still worth dishing out for). At these prices, I can get better fitting bespoke stuff from a...

    Just gotten my Arnold flannel trousers in the mail and wow, first time getting something from BnB and I was pleasantly surprised by the quick shipping (Sweden > Italy took a mere 5 days, week-end included) and impeccable packaging (given that places like Drake's and Fransboone just ship their...

    Quick shipment, very responsive via email and instagram and the products were 100% as described and original, with labels and all; the only downside is the steep customs fees I got to pay since I'm buying from Italy, which was like 20% of the final price or something. Still worth it compared to...

    I got quite a few garments from them, the quality is absolutely on point, higher than Drake's on average for sure. Their stuff is expensive but actually looks like it's worth the hefty price. Take these 2 pieces I personally own, for instance...

    The high-end Workwear/Gorpcore/Ivy/americana japanese replica look has been a thing for 5+ years now, it's just the expensive menswear brands catching onto the trend just now and trying to turn it into a mainstream phenomenon. Suits haven't really been an option for 98% of the people out there...

    The Official Alden Thread for 2023 - Share Reviews, Sizing, Advice, and Photos.

    The bottom element of the heel is so worn out and beaten up that it has swollen up and it isn't even flush with the rubber piece underneath anymore. Kinda crazy for a 900 $ shoe that was gently used. @serious_ed Yeah these are waterlocked soles iirc, thanks for the suggestion. I might just...

    so, uhm, what's going on with my LHS penny loafers sole and how do I fix it (or get it fixed)? Here's 2 pics, what puzzles me is that I got these 2 years ago and I haven't used them a ton (mostly over the summer, too). On the other hand, the third picture shows the sole of a pair of intensively...

    Looks good and it's perfectly wearable as is, however, it would look better if it was a tad longer and ever so slightly larger towards the bottom (waist/hips area - case in point: it looks perfect unbuttoned).
