  • 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.

    Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only

    I've always kind of liked some of the different leathers they use but got the impression sometimes the leather was not that thick and at least at one point they used foam in their footbeds.

    Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only

    I think I understand what your saying. However to be honest I've always considered something like Nicks, Whites, Trumans, to be nothing more than casual boots anyway. Well, that is except Nicks and Whites are fully capable of being work boots, some of their boots maybe more than others. But...

    Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only

    Do you own any PNW boots that you might be able to compare them too? I've always wondered what someone who owned a pair of Trumans and Nicks or Whites might have to say about their Trumans.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    That's true until they aren't and that happens as well. Had the government not gotten involved and helped GM out after 2008 GM would have folded and they had been in business for about a century. Their pensions almost crushed them, and as it turns out parking lots full of new vehicles that don't...

    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    Actually I think it would have been much better to describe it differently. It’s more a case that you will get used to it. In fact that’s probably exactly why I said it that way, because I’ve gotten used to it. In fact I just compared one I’ve used for the last 6 years to a new one and in...

    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    They get more pliable in fairly short order, the thing is because it’s so thick and the right kind of leather (I’m assuming this is English Bridle Leather) it will be extremely durable for a very long time. Those that complain about them being to thick just don’t understand. Yes a leather belt...

    Boots Boots Boots - For Boot Guys Only

    Scratches can be like that and for the most part as long as it’s not to deep the only thing you can do is try use some wax or maybe some cream and attempt to make it look a little better. From here it doesn’t look to wide or deep so wax alone might be just fine.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    I’ll give you this I haven’t worn any of my CXL boots that extensively nor that long. I just simply have a big enough rotation I don’t find myself needing to do that. Then again your the first person I’ve seen have this problem so I just had to ask.

    ‘Yeah, that’s why I find this whole stretching problem he’s experiencing so odd.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    Yeah, I’ve just never experienced anything like this, and you say this has happened with multiple different CXL boots from different bootmakers? This almost looks like what one might expect to happen if one gets the wrong size. I do wonder if you might be able to make this better if you tried a...

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    Well, actually I was just trying to get a bit more detail and trying to find out what exactly was going on.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    I’ve not experienced that. I don’t doubt that you have, but I do have to wonder exactly why and how much. I haven’t spent much time here lately but I’ve not come across anything that would indicate this to be such a rampant issue with CXL. I mean CXL is used in an awful lot of boots and shoes.

    Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts?

    I wish you would have said something prior to me getting my CXL boots from Wolverine, Viberg, Nicks, and Whites. But since I already have them and can’t figure out what’s wrong with them would you be kind enough to tell me be for I throw them in the trash. Oh, and can you tell me why all my...

    With all of the boots I have from Carmina to Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling, and St Crispins and a good number more my Islay’s are still one of my favorite pair of boots.

    Shoe store etiquette/advice

    Just ensure you’re more focused on trying on as many different Lasts as possible in the sizes necessary. The store may not appreciate that approach but that’s the best approach for you. Of course record your results.

    Shoe trees : are they really needed?

    Frankly I think we could benefit much more from something else being studied. However if it were to be conducted I think the criteria should possibly include various leathers, various thicknesses of leather, different types of Lasts, lengths, widths, and various different soles and their...

    Shoe trees : are they really needed?

    Sorry, but I’m just yanking on your chain a bit. As I stated earlier based on what I have seen and my first hand experience I’m already convinced and don’t find this experiment necessary. As I mentioned earlier I’ve seen enough to already know those who don’t might have varying level of results...

    Shoe trees : are they really needed?

    Maybe they don’t see it being worth their time and effort. But you do at least have that one Reddit user mentioned earlier who did, and it appears based on his results shoe trees were found to be beneficial.

    Shoe trees : are they really needed?

    If you’re that interested why don’t you just go ahead and perform the study yourself?

    Shoe trees : are they really needed?

    There’s essential and then there are things that make things better. If I’m already spending $600 plus on a pair of boots or shoes spending $35 more on a pair of shoe trees that will help to ensure those pair of shoes or boots look and function better over the course of their life it’s money...
