  • 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.

I love eating outside. It's a rare combination of two enjoyable things. Wind can ruin it, however.

Generally, yes, but not all the time. For some types of food, I prefer an indoor environment. As far as drinking goes, outside > inside.

Where I live, outside dining is a big thing. Right time of year, I love it. Very few bugs around here, great scenery, perfection.

Outside drinking > inside drinking.

Outside drinking, 2am, quiet natural setting on the other side of your fence/wall, soft chill music playing, spa, majetically star lit sky > all

Drinking outside (i.e., beer) and eating bar or bbq food is great. Anything else, I would probably prefer to be indoors.

I like eating outside in a town plaza in Spain or Italy. Or if you're at the beach. But it doesn't make or break the experience.

As for drinking outside, open container drinking laws can really put a damper on that, unfortunately.

s" taking half of an already narrow sidewalk. I much prefer patios and gardens in the back of the restaurant. Terraces with nice views are the best.
