  • 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.

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    I think we've bottomed this one out already, but in case it helps further, here are a pair of Belgravias.... Brown are unlined Black are lined Both about 18m old, and if anything, I've worn the brown ones more. For further context, I've added a pair of Baudoin & Lange sagans, which are truly...

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    My experience of lined vs unlined (specifically, suede Belgravias), is that I have seen no difference in longevity or loss of shape over time. Sure, something like a Polperro is going to have even less structure and is cemented and will collapse more readily, but an unlined welted shoe...

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    Similar here. Assuming you're looking at the same model lined vs unlined, then the unlined is certainly more comfortable and lighter - they are lovely to wear. I dont size differently, but I probably could size down 1/2 in an unlined version if, for example, a used pair came up on eBay or SF...

    Ah that's interesting. They are a Factory shoe though, so possibly made wrong or something similar. They are definitely cordovan - advised by a couple of the cutters and closers at the factory who were helping with the sale. At least they were priced, sold and bought as such!

    Amazing spot! Yes, I think that's the shoe. I didn't get the lasted trees, but they were embarrassingly cheap just for the shoes and so I was more than happy to skulk off a very happy guy.

    I thought I'd share a little pic of the others I was lucky to find on Saturday: 1. Piccadilly; unlined in brown english grain 2. Dover; mink suede 3. Belgravia; burgundy cordovan 😎 They're so helpful there, too. Highly recommend a trip at any time to the factory shop, and especially so...

    Oh wow - that would be amazing. I'm sure there were a couple more like that hidden away behind the door - I wish I'd had a longer look! I've never had a top-drawer shoe from EG, so maybe this is the one and only I'll have 😆

    Thanks jellyroller, I was wondering the same

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    I managed to pick up a few pairs from the Factory shop sale on Saturday to add to the collection, and one pair has got me intrigued. It's a lazyman, which I know is not a current shoe, but the waist is quite different to typical EG, and the black sole is also something I haven't seen before...

    @PairOfDerby's Ha! Yeah fair - I should rephrase - I'm in Newcastle (fun), for a brother in law's secret 40th (not as much) 😆

    Ah yeah good point... (I don't know the answer, btw!)

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    Last time (earlier this year) it was something like: c.£300-£400 for shoes/loafers c.£400-£600 for anything with hand-stitching (e.g. Dover) c.£600-£800 for boots Or something like that - I picked up a few pairs and chose not to look at the card machine 😅 Any body offering to proxy? I suspect...

    @montecristo#2 Stamford? I have heard the hatch grains can be a bit stiffer initially - hope you get through that stage sooner rather than later and can start enjoying them.

    Thanks @ericgereghty Fortunately eBay have stepped in and facilitated a return 👍

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    Another recommendation to keep the same size for lined/unlined. I've got lined and unlined Belgravias both in the same size; and a 'prototype' unlined Banbury (yes, sounds like a Shanklin but apparently it isn't!). I find the unlined version(s) are generally more comfortable - more flexible...

    Ring Jacket

    Hi all I'm not that active on this particular thread, but do occasionally contribute on some of the shoe threads. I have a few RJ jackets, but have just taken delivery of a Meister jacket, bought from eBay (don't judge!), that I'm not particularly happy with and would appreciate some help from...

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    I did manage to get there, and came away with a couple of nice pick-ups I think. The suede boots were described to me as a prototype 'unlined Banbury', but they are extremely similar to the Shanklin! The stitching is a little different, but hey, it's a mink suede boot and so it'll get a load of...

    Anyone been over there today? I'm hoping to swing by, but it's already getting late and I'll probably not be there until 3pm 😬

    @unprocessed Definitely go for the UCs. I've got this boot (chestnut grain, sq deco last) and as @saurabh says, they are quite unique.
