  • 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.

My suit arrived today, quicker than expected, giving another day for turnaround. Unfortunately my tailor is snowed under and also will be closed sat-wed. Just need sleeves lifted and hemmed trews - any suggestion for a quick competent workhouse?

If the sleeves don't have functioning buttonholes, these are pretty simple repairs, hard to get wrong. I'd just go to the nearest shopping centre and ask somebody can they guarantee completion by the weekend.

I drank Chinese wine about 3 months ago and woke up in a random hostel.

I really need to check that both my kidneys are still there.

Visiting there for work in January, including a city with average temps of -10c.

Sounds like the wine will keep me warm?

I'm taking 2 suits, a pea coat and 2 pairs of chukka boots with dainite soles. I plan to wear all of this at the same time.

Any other tips from SFers

Afraid it’s a shoulder job. Did find a tailor who was able to do it and also open on Monday. Took a few phone calls.
