  • 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. Shop the Loden collection here.

i don't have one but modal is very soft and absorbent. They use it in women's lingerie. I have a couple of scarves from Drakes, one of them a very nice printed silk. Drakes seems to understand comfortable fabrics. It's also a very Green fabric so you'd be saving the polar bears

Thanks FNB. I’m cool with polar bears as long as they don't maul my face off. Does modal breath? I guess I am having scary thoughts as I am associating modal with rayon since I believe they are both man made "natural fibres".

Is silk/modal warm? This seems like something you'd wear in the sandstorms of Beirut
