  • 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.

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Cheapest by far would be their annual sample sales, but those are hit and miss if you're looking for something specific. Otherwise they pop up in various places here and there. My favorites are Leisure Society for titanium. They now have a variety including both the original blocky titanium...

    An Eterna Kontiki! I have the 1973 reissue version of that watch. That black and white gold colorway looks great on the Cavallet, would be a great option for formal occasions as well.

    7th row from the top? They're more of a brown gradient than a rose lens, but it's the platinum plated Mykita Rolf they released for their 5th anniversary along with a coffee table photobook. They made a lot of other colorways, but the platinum ones were limited to 100 pairs and I was lucky...

    Has anyone been to the JMM headquarters? They say they're based in Los Angeles, but I can't find an address or if they're open to the public. It's the Mykita X Kostas Murkudis Phineas! Can't find a photo of the full array of colorways for that model, but below is the the more rounded Elektra...

    Thank you! I haven't had a chance to try out JMM yet, but the pictures people have been posting in this thread make me think I'll have to seek them out. I actually live near the Leisure Society headquarters in Costa Mesa (Salt Optics is a few blocks over); I got all but 4 of my pairs directly...

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Oh man, it physically pains me to even think about that... But if I had to, I think I'd go the practical route focus on the more simple, stylistically versatile ones, and sell off the oddball limited ones that I get more excited about. I'd also want to pick ones that seem durable and will age...

    Updated collection... I've tried to keep it varied, but I keep coming back to Leisure Society, Mykita, IC! Berlin, and Salt Optics. LS is the current favorite with 17 pairs in the collection, but Mykita and IC! Berlin are hard to beat for comfort and durability.

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    They make some very nice frames with a lot of intricate details. One disappointing thing that I did find, though, is that many of the matte acetate frames are coated with a very thin rubberized coating, and once that starts to flake off the frame doesn't look so great. I really like the screwed...

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Since that post, I've realized that Trivex is actually polyurethane (as a materials engineer, I should have known that). So I do have a few pairs with polyurethane lenses, some of which I've had for a while. I haven't noticed any issues, although one of my shooting lenses looks like it has...

    I don't know if these count, but the Leisure Society Savoye is kind of hexagonal and the Voysey is kind of geometrical. Salt Optics' Dibergi is also geometrical and is supposedly an extremely popular model for them. Dita does a lot of work with sharp angles in their line as well. Mykita had...

    As best as I can remember from seeing the film in theaters, Christian Bale is wearing a pair of Ray Ban Predators. That stuck out to me because I don't think the model came out until the 90's. It's most known for being used in the original Men in Black.

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Haven't tried them yet, but I have heard that they are very good as far as sport optics go. What's kept me away is that all the offerings I've seen from them are more in line with the "lifestyle" offerings from sport optic brands, in that they're a little sporty but also very toned down with...

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Do you mean trivex or that specific supplier? It is nice to see more manufacturers pairing trivex lenses with anti reflective coatings. Many sport optics makers are hesitant to use AR because it can make the lens brittle, but trivex is shatterproof. Pilla makes the best ones I've tried and coats...

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    I haven't, mine are the MY+ polarized lenses. Looking at the site they call it a urethane lens, so it must be some type of Trivex. These frames require stronger lenses to deal with the stresses in the grooves of the lens, so that makes sense. Trivex and nylon are the higher optical quality...

    3 of my current favorites. The first one's the PQ Ealing Broadway; the A-shaped part has notches that allow you to make some minor adjustments to the size of the frame. It's kind of gimmicky but I like the look of it. The second one is the Mykita Rolf; a hugely popular model that I thought...

    A Thread for Sunglasses (High End and Rarities Welcome)

    Holy ****, I feel like I've found my alter ego. Completely agree about Leisure Society making the best metal frames out there. I'm on the fence about the IC! Berlin titanium vs stainless frames. The hinge is smoother because the nylon insert is slicker, but the weight savings isn't that...

    Hi Zam! Any chance you'll expand more on the product descriptions on the site? I notice that many of the pages have very little info about the construction of each item, and almost never anything about the stories behind them. That's a shame considering how much thought goes into your designs...
