  • 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.

Can anyone tell me what their ties and pocket squares go for in Paris? With the money exchange vs. no shipping costs, how much, if at all, am I saving?

Saw some few Charvets at the nearby Saks Off-5th (Block of Orange) for $60 or so on my last visit a couple of weeks ago. None that inspired me to buy them, however.

Charvet sells every design of tie imaginable, from very conservative prints (including madders) to knit ties to very flamboyant wovens. The latter are what ends up in the export market as they are recognizably Charvet. I'm not sure what "daily use" is. I don't wear the same tie every day and I don't think you do either. However, many of Charvet's extravagant woven designs are very delicate.

I really don't like the recognizable Charvet ties that we find here. The prints in the Paris store are some of the nicest ties that I have ever seen. The knits are excellent if expensive.

This may be too late to be germane to anybody, but I offer this as a memorial to history: as on late May, 2012, ties at the Vendome Charvet were 135 Eurors, across the board. Prices varied for bow ties. Pocket squares were mostly 35 to 50 euros. I got my first Charvet today, and am well pleased with it.
