  • 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.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Yes, as soon as I read your post my thought was "I've definitely read things in this thread pointing people to the Lesser 16oz". I'd forgotten about it, but you triggered my memory. Took a look on the Harrisons website, and from the photo (for what that's worth), I think I do really like it...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Anyone seen/have a picture of the Hardy Minnis Alsport 2414? Supposed to be a dark blue hopsack. Looking at the Huddersfield website, I think the wrong image is up. The photo looks, well, not blue at all. It's also 590g. That's, what, 20oz? Not entirely sure I'm up for something that heavy...

    Eames Lounge Chair copies... worth it?

     Care to elaborate? I've only ever used Lexol on boots and shoes, but I'd be curious to know why you dislike it for furniture.

    Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW!

     Had to reply to this. Totally true. I'm in geoscience in Calgary, and I've gotten funny looks from friends for not wearing hiking boots to work every day in an office.

    How high are your armholes?

    As has been (I believe) mentioned, the height of the armscye isn't the only variable in the equation. The angle the sleeve is set at makes a huge difference, as I found out when commissioning my dance tails. The sleeve on all my normal coats are set close to vertical, where the sleeves on my...

    Site Topics - Part II

     I'm going to go ahead and claim that I fit into both of these categories, and add that I don't prefer that. I'm here to read posts by FC, and manton, and gdl, and iammatt, and bris, and others with that level of knowledge and passion. I post very seldom, mostly because I have nothing to say...

    American Geniuses

    I may be influenced by the field I work in, but along the lines of "genius most people have probably never heard of" I'm going to go with Claude Shannon

    Kent Wang - Affiliate thread

    Got my first two polos from KW a couple days ago. All the warnings on the site about how slim they were had me freaking out. I got paranoid, and went with the XL. In retrospect, I probably could have gone for the L. Really nice stuff though. My new polo shirt go-to I think.

    Random Food Questions Thread

    When curing meat (duck prosciutto recipe from Rulhmann), what is more important: the low temperature or the humidity. I started making it before I realized that I have nowhere in my place cool enough (in the 50-60 range). I can do fridge, but that will be simultaneously too cold and too dry. I...

    Any other Edmontonians here?

    So, idealcampus.ca has a promotion, $54 for MTM shirts at Four Seasons Tailors, downtown. Has anyone used these guys, or heard anything about them?

    Moleskine/ Rhodia uses

    I am in school, but I don't use my notebooks for class. I've actually got a couple I write in frequently. In my grad work, I find a lab notebook comes in handy. I essentially write down everything I think of, and everything I do in the lab. Keeps a record of the work I've done/plan to do...

    Any other Edmontonians here?

     Well, by "August" I mean "August 9". Unfortunately, I don't think there's anything non-local that will get here in time. Thanks though. Thanks!

    Any other Edmontonians here?

    Hey guys. My wedding date has, in response to circumstances beyond my control, been moved from next summer, to this August. As such, I find myself in dire need of a few ties for myself and my groomsmen. So my question is this: is there anywhere in town to buy a few nice wedding ties? You know...

    Possibility of a Regional Area on this Board?

    Grad School Attire

    just don't look homeless and you will be fine. And, even this isn't a hard and fast rule. In my experience as a Physics grad, this strip says it all. When I wear a button down and jeans, people think I'm going for interviews. http://www.phdcomics.com/comics/arch...p?comicid=1147
