  • 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.

Anybody have experience with the Stevens Boot? I think it is probably one of the most handsome models they make. If I understand it correctly the back half of the boot is a 55 last, with the arch support that that entails, and the front part is the MP last with the sleeker toe. Seems to me the best of both worlds. I wonder if they also weigh 2.5 pounds per shoe like the MP or Semi-Dress (believe me, this would be a plus).
That's the relatively new 5050 last. And yeah it's gonna be a brick just like any White's boot.

Me personally, I'd like the reverse -- a 55 toe and an MP heel! Call it the 0505 last.

MP size heel or mp backstay?

If you want a smaller heel, you can ask for a combo 55 last, meaning say a EE toe box and E heel or whatever width you prefer so long as it's only 1 size difference(AFAIK)

I've found myself with enough credit at Baker's to get two pairs of White's. Anyone wanting to share some recent wear n' tear photos to show off some leather options and aging? Probably going to steer clear of CXL and any 'special' leathers
