    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.

Custom coat fit questions

Hi, I had a custom coat made recently and I'd like to hear some opinions. I'm concerned about the fold that forms above and under the buttons. The logical answer is to move the buttons so it's as tight around the waist area, but it doesn't feel tight. It fits perfectly, but has these folds which I'm not very happy about. What alterations would you recommend or would you keep it as is?

Why do you want to see a picture without a scarf underneath? The scarf isn't very thick. There's also a jacket underneath, but sometimes I wear the coat just over a shirt.

Unbutton the coat and let it hang freely. The buttons on the right side will be lower than the buttonhole on the left side because the shoulders aren't cut for your low shoulder. If the wrinkles go away when unbuttoned then you only have to adjust the buttons. If the wrinkle persist, it is the cut of the shoulders or a balance issue. Not possible to confirm from such limiting pictures.

This is the oddest styling of a top coat. DB, notch lapels and slash pockets!

Fit analysis would be better without the scarf.
