  • 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.

I also notice that my CJ Hallam shoes have a gap in the laces area. Is it not suppose to close up, my instep is perfectly normal? Or is that only for bespoke shoes?

Despite how normal your instep may be, if there is a gap when the lacing is done up, it's because your instep is too high to allow it to close. It's closed in this picture -- when you put your foot in, there may be a slight gap which is fine. If the gap is huge, they may not fit that well.

Which means they fit.
