  • 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.

Au contraire , mon Ami...

People used to have one decent suit for special occasions and Church Sundays.
Best for Sunday, next-best for work, third-best for the garden.

I never think DB with an open shirt collar works, even with overcoats. Time and time again I rather keep my tie on in the bar/pub/restaurant than take it off after work...or look in the mirror after putting an overcoat on and go back to get a scarf.

I agree with you 100%, it's always gotta be a tie for me and the higher the opening gorge on the jacket, the better IMO. A lot of my mates wear DB suits but it's more of a winter thing; they don't look right open. Quite a few mates are going do the path of having a jacket only made and wearing them with complementary trousers, shirt and tie. Looks great if you can carry it off, sadly I don't have the figure to carry it off these days

Hi, this is from another member but I can't recall whom does anyone know?



What does everyone think of it? I really like it and want something bespoke very much like that, though I'm relatively new to tailored suits. I believe to note with this jacket's cutting is the low set buttons, relatively large amount of drop, largish lapels? I'm also thinking perhaps to have it made with pagoda shoulders? What do you guys think?

I agree on the whole, though I came across this picture of Vox in the back of a taxi recently, and think it looks good.
