  • 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.

    Interested to know which guest author you find most detestable and why?

    Rubato

    I never understand the way some people will say 'the margins are pretty high, they are even fleecing us for cotton dad caps. And 300 for a tshirt is too much for me... but good for them! I'm happy they are making it work!' Some people just bend over when a brand seems arseholish enough to treat...

    Yep - they are definitely a brand that acts like you should be grateful for them allowing you to buy from them. Something a lot of these boutique brands contrive. It's a real arseholish way of doing business, especially when providing a service or a product! A young brand like them should be...

    Rubato

    Their fit is quite odd, I find. I'm 6'4 and with a roughly 33/34 inch waist. I wear a 54 in Rubato Officer chinos, as it was the only size that just about fits me right. Good in the rise and leg, but the seat seems oddly restrictive, particularly across the flat front, pocket to pocket aspect. I...

    Sure but it is is chiefly the nonpareil line that I’m trying to understand the pricing of

    Prices have just gone up again! £395 for a cotton jumper a day or two ago, £400 today. This is a little mad

    Rubato

    Interesting! that's what's prevented me from buying the heavy one, even though it seems like a far more substantial - if absurdly priced - item of clothing. That said, the idea of basically telling anyone I know in my actual life that I was actually considering spending 400 on a cotton...

    Got the anthology one! It’s lovely. Is the rubato one as nice?

    Rubato

    Need some help here. The non-pareil range. I'm a little mystified at the price of a thin cotton crew neck being £300+ How does that work exactly? Having seen the photo of someone wearing it in this group, to me it looks entirely unremarkable. I'd say something that for my menswear addled brain...

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    Yeah that's exactly it. Though honestly I think the dark brown is easier to style. I thought the rust one was far more running the risk of seeming oddly functional, like a dad on the school run, which is funny because i'd have said the opposite a few years ago. I used to see it as an item that...

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    Controversial opinion: Suede chore isn't actually that nice! I used to love it and when it first came out it was quite stunning. Obviously material is beautiful, but in the last 5 years chore coats have become so ubiquitous that it doesn't seem quite so striking anymore to me! It seems like a...

    As for the Crompmeisters latest post, what do we all think? A noble pursuit? Or an epiphany and post holiday guilt about his readerships spending habits? I have personally commissioned a new jacket for the new year and find that saving for/enjoying the process of a MTM jacket actually restricts...

    What an odd response! Not sure on what basis you could assert something like that, but no, I am British and have lived here my whole life and this is the only time in my entire life I've been prompted to defend that! Just because you put 'nobody' in capitals whilst repeating what you've said...

    Yes, they do and no, I’m not. East Asian and South Asian are not the loony lefty PC Brigade gone mad and forcing it down your throat. They’re geographical realities.

    Correct - put photos of yourself online and you will get comments, some of them from rude and ignorant people. Congratulations, on deciding to be one of those people! East Asia and South Asia. Both technically Asian. We just had a lot of immigration from India and Pakistan during the early...

    Definitely see how he’s used his personal styling to broaden appeal of the Brycelands look. I was completely ready to love Bryceland’s. Yet I’ve found much of what they do to be costumey and I think similarly, I find Ethan’s looks very costumey. Always a few too many things on them competing for...

    As a London based Englishman married to a British East Asian woman I have to disagree. I think the term oriental is now widely regarded as pejorative. Perhaps far less so than other slurs. However, it is definitely Eurocentric, reductive and rooted in a colonial understanding of a huge part of...

    Term oriental is - being as generous as possible - incredibly old fashioned. Being less generous it is actually quite insulting, rooted in colonialism and is basically quite reductive. Where exactly is the orient anyway? But hey, I suspect you’re not one to care about that! Just because...

    An ‘oriental version.’ Yuck. Please tell me you’re over the age of 80. And calling out Ethan Newton - who admittedly dresses in a pretty ludicrous way - for being overweight. Come on, dude. Pretty much everything about what you’ve written here is gross and unpleasant.
