  • 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.

Finally bought my dream shoes but I want to make sure I know how to care for it before I step on some concrete.

I have read conflicting information:

AE cordovan cream, bick4, saphir renovaeur, alden spray, or just brush it.

I bought shoe trees and a brush.

Just want to make sure I take good care of it and prevent any water damage etc.

Thank you in advance!

I'm not an expert on cordovan leather however a brush is the minimum amount of kit that you want. Brush it before and after a wear.

If you want to be really careful about water, you could get some galoshes to wear on rainy or snowy days.

The whole deer bone thing was a sham so don't waste your money.

If I get rain on the shoes, will the spots go away? I dont want to baby the shoes also.
