  • 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.

Well, I should've started this earlier, but life. Let's extend the deadline to next Friday.

When cooler weather hits, the fun of dressing gets taken up a notch or two. Layers come back, heavier fabrics, and one of my favorites - the overcoat - gets paraded in all its awesomeness.

I love overcoats, and look for any excuse to wear one. They elongate the body and wrap you up in cozy cool like nothing else. I think I have about five, which is 20 too few. For a refresher on what kinds of overcoats there are, check out this article on the Journal (and feel free to comment).

Anything goes in this challenge. Wear an overcoat with a suit? Fine. Jeans? No problem. With another overcoat? Probably not, but go ahead anyway.

Here's some pics for inspiration.

@UrbanComposition i can see the point on the coat (covert?), but you open the challenge with Nigel Farage ?!
