  • 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 Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    Looking for feedback on sizing and fit for some recent Ring Jacket Japan purchases. All are Meister-line. The double-breasted suit in Dormeuil Brio Lite is size 48. The two jackets are model 254: The first is 46 in Zegna cross ply and the second is size 48 in Savile Clifford Glen check.

    Lengthening surgeon's cuffs

    Bought a nice Ring Jacket Meister-line navy hopsack sportscoat from Japanese Yahoo Auctions. It fits great except that the sleeves are too short, by about a quarter of an inch. They're surgeon's cuffs and to add to the dilemma, the distance from the last button to the cuff is already, for some...

    The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    Looking for some advice on a suit I picked up from a Japanese auction site. The suit is by Ring Jacket, from their Ring Sartoria line. It seems very well made and I like the fabric. The issues are that the jacket seems too long and the chest too tight. I'm trying to decide whether it's worth it...

    The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    Looking for some advice about tailoring overcoats. First is a SB cashmere/vicuna overcoat, made in Austria (Austram) found on eBay. I took in to a tailor in NYC, and they took in the chest, as well as the neck. (Latter was on their suggestion.) I feel like it now looks too "shaped", coming in at...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Very happy with how the suit turned out. Came out to around ~2600 including a significant upcharge for the Holland and Sherry 80/20 'kid summer mohair' fabric.

    wedding tie: style, width

    I'm finishing up the process of having a suit made by Vestrucci for my wedding. The suit is in dark blue, a 80/20 mohair blend from H&S. I'm slim (5'8, 130) and tend to find off-the-rack ties to be too wide. However, I'm aware that the tie should be proportionate to the suit lapel, and...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Decided to go with Vestrucci. The suit came back from Florence and we did a fitting today. The thing I was most concerned about was the fabric, an 80/20 Mohair from H&S in 7.5 oz that I thought might be too light and drape poorly, but I am happy with it and the drape seems fine. However, it does...

    Fox Brothers fabric for versatile suit—City, Air, Golden?

    At Vestrucci for the measurement yesterday, Tommaso showed me a jacket in Fox Air and I agreed that the fabric was a bit too coarse for the occasion (my wedding). But he talked me out of Fox City as being too heavy: the wedding is in August, and as I emphasized I sweat easily. (It's not that I...

    Fox Brothers fabric for versatile suit—City, Air, Golden?

    I'm trying to select a fabric for a MTM Vestrucci suit. I have liked Fox fabrics in the past so I ordered a selection of samples. It's going to be some variation on navy, but I'm trying to decide between their various bunches. The occasion for the suit is my wedding in NYC in August, but I'd...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Yes, my shoulders do slope and my posture is bad. I have a relatively large chest but small shoulders—I think this is from lifting weights (+chest) and running a lot (-shoulders and everywhere else) and I think this makes it tricky. the 36 in Greenfield was better in shoulders but also popping...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Greenfield was fun to visit. I spoke with Tod Greenfield and tried on a couple of different samples in various cuts and sizes. This 37R looked the best to me, though if they were to make something for me along these lines we agreed that the shoulders should come in, and the jacket should be...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Tried Zegna, Prada, and Dior today just to rule them out. I feel very confident in ignoring these going forward as the quality was noticeably worse and the fit was quite bad—"slim" but unsubtly and awkwardly so. I felt like I could get the same look at Zara, which presumably is imitating...

    Bespoke/MTM in NYC?

    Thanks, all, for the advice. I stopped by The Armoury as well as Sartoria Vestrucci yesterday to check out what they had. (No Man Walks Alone is still closed—they said likely until June which, given my timeframe, may not work unless I'm sure I'm not doing MTM or bespoke). At The Armoury I tried...
