    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.

Already got it…but real or fake Paul Smith? I’ve never seen a label like this. The materials/made in tag is tucked into the inside pocket.

Hello, could you please help me identify if this Celine tee I bought is fake or authentic? The Ebay seller insists that it is authentic, but I have some doubts.

The cashmere of the second and the silk of the first don't seem very qualitative to the touch.
I think @othertravel 's point is that if you were trying to make money by counterfeiting ties, it wouldn't make much sense to counterfeit Altea ties. You'd be much more successful making counterfeit Hermes, Versace, Ferragamo, etc etc etc.

Thank you for this - I should have been more clear.

But yes, Altea is one of the least likely to faked. Word is that they make (made?) ties for RLPL.
