    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's the differences between a Lamar and a Biella? Looking in the future for a winter coat and both seem kind of similar!
Biella was a thinner coat, better for Fall than a snowy winter, more traditional cut Italian car coat, I think. Length was about mid-thigh. Notable details were pocket flaps that can seamlessly disappear inside the pocket. TTS sizing, but sizing up 1 works.

The Lamar is a stiffer felt wool. More grand and structured, and a length that goes down past the knee. Details include some cool embellishments around the elbows (the correct term is escaping me at the moment). Collar stands well on its own. Good for cold wintery snow. Fits 1 size large, so sizing down 1 still gives an oversized fit.

The Richmond and Goreckis fit exactly the same, so if you think the rise is too low on the Gorecki (which comes in at 12.75” +/- 0.5” with tolerance), those won’t work either. FWIW, I’ve never heard anyone describe a 12.75” rise as low.
Thanks for sizing info.

Damn, then I guess the issue is it's too big for my waist.

I guess the Goreckis have always felt a bit more... fitted? That might just have to do with the fabric and puckering. My Richmonds were more flowy, so I guess that might've made them feel looser.

This is why I got so much sh*t in the beginning when people asked how things fit and I jokingly said “just right.” It’s all highly subjective. I’ve never heard anyone describe the goreckis as fitted or having a low rise until these last couple comments. Conversely, people have much more frequently characterized them as “huge” or “enormous” with much too long a rise. What is slim for one person is huge for another. I personally think they’re the best fitting pant we make, or “just right” 😉

I totally get it. Just to be clear, I don't think the Goreckis are "fitted" or have a low rise. I guess I just couldn't find the right words to describe the difference (you're right, totally subjective) between the Richmonds and Goreckis, in my experience. I've just found the Richmonds to fit a little looser, but that likely just has to do with the fabric and how it feels/moves.

The fit on both is "just right," Antonio :)

Are the pants dropping tomorrow a version of the Kadens?! Pocket config looks very similar. Happens to be what I’m wearing today along with the SS easy shirt.

Preview of tomorrow's drop on IG, looks like they're bringing back the Hollow shirt. It's not the burgundy and white striped one though :(

I'm so in the habit of sizing up, I accidentally sized up on the Grahame big tees ... feel like that is going to be too much probably!
