  • 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.

    What can I wear with shorts other than sneakers or loafers?

    My go to is a pair of driving moccasins, which probably would be classified as a loafer. I’m partial to Tod’s and I have them in green nubuck, navy suede, and tan calfskin. They are fine for walking long miles in Rome, where I lived and traipsed about in them on many hot summer days. Hogan...

    How to get onto a Board

     I currently sit on two boards, and in both circumstances I was recommended as a candidate by someone that leads an industry think-tank type organization. I would recommend thinking about which industries could benefit from your trade-skills and then attend or speak at conferences and trade...

    Sutor Mantellassi Sizing

    I wear a 10D in the Park Avenue, and I wear a 43 for Sutor. I would imagine you would wear a 42 if you are a 9 in the Park Ave.

    Investment Banker/Private Equity work and casual attire

    I generally agree with Quadcammer. Dress like any respectable entry level professional until you are directly responsible for bringing in new clients for your bank. If there is an associate or vice preisdent that is well respected by the senior bankers, study that individual's attire. Once you...

    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III

     +1...ditch the tie bar with this tie. I'd probably scale back on the amount of red in the pocket square, but I tend to dress a bit on the conservative side. The shoe and pants combo look nice with the color of the jacket.

    Are oxfords only for suits?

    As others here have pointed out, a brogued oxford, like a blue/navy or brown wingtip, would be fine with odd trousers or well cut, darkly colored jeans. A black whole it could possibly pass, too. Balmoral captoes would be too formal IMO for anything but a suit.

    Does anyone get mocked for over-dressing at work?

     Amen, brother. Amen!

    The yellow tie - how workable?

    I like the color combination of yellow against a light blue shirt, and I think your combo looks great. It's a bold, cheerful pairing.

    Tie/Shirt interview combination question

     Agreed with most of the posts here. If you are interviewing for a professional job (e.g. Attorney, I-banker, etc) a white shirt with a conservative tie would be appropriate. The ties you have are okay, but only okay, and they might be perceived as too fancy for an interview. That being...

    Sartorio vs Stile Latino

    I am sorry to hear that this has been your experience. Perhaps the seller can make some complaint on your behalf? All of the Sartorio suits I own have been able to withstand my use. Not that I am beating them up per say, but I do wear them for work and social occassions without a thought about...

    Sartorio vs Stile Latino

    I own several Sartorio suits and one SL suit. The SL suit is from the company's "Vintage" line. The rise on the SL suit is quite short and the pants are substantially slimmer than the Sartorio suits. Both have excellent fabric and cuts. Pick stitching in the SL seems more pronounced than in the...

    Black tie to an interview

    Not unless you are an undertaker or a security guard. Maybe as a waiter at a high-end European restaurant, where waiters wear white coats.

    Not sure of the city of origin. I have a light blue linen sport coat, which has full canvas, a neopolitan collar, lovely pick stitching and a quarter lining. The lapel roll is nice as is the fabric. The price was a steal. Definitely worth a look.
