  • 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. Shop the Loden collection here.

Where can you find this? I only get a bar graph split by dollar amount.

I was just glancing over my year end summary and found they put things in the wrong category. I noticed a jacket I had made by my tailor was filed under "communications."

Did you pay your bill in full every month on time? If you didn't that is why your score went down.

AMEX is a charge card, you have to pay in full every month. Yea they offer some customers that flex pay nonsense, but I don't think any rational people take them up on that "perk."
