    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.

Are rimless glasses a bad idea?

About a week ago I got my first pair of rimless glasses, after having used half-rimmed for some years. The frame is a Tag Heuer one, I think it is the track series that you can see on http://www.tagheuer.com/eyewear/, similar to model 7103, but with grey sidepieces.
I am pretty happy with it, I like the way it looks, although I think that my previous frame, a Mont Blanc one, sat more reliably.
Of course, after about two weeks I cannot say a lot about durability, but the guy who owns to store said that there should be no problem. I have been a client there for some years so I guess that he will not tell me bullshit and run the risk to loose a good customer.

Love rimless glasses. I've worn Silhouette and Kawasaki and have been happy with both. They're so light I don'teven notice that I'm wearing glasses.

Well, I sprung for the Silhouettes. Got a medium-sized square lens with the super-bendy stems. Pretty pleased, even though they were pricey even with insurance. But I like them a lot.

I love the light weight but I have not had good luck with them. Mine have tended to crack at all of the connection points.
