  • 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.

Friends, looking for affordable version of a Musella Dembech type looking suit (DB), do you know any retailers that carry this look?

You’re not likely to get any helpful responses without telling us what “affordable” means to you and what exactly you like about that suit. You will not find a RTW copy of that style, so what is it that you find most appealing about it?

Yes, I should have been more specific - by affordable I mean anything around the 1k usd mark. I like the jacket and the way the lapels have been designed.

I did find some that kind of looked like it from Lardini and Tagliatore, but was looking for more accurate RTW suggestions.

at 1k USD options are somewhat limited, especially if you want structured shoulders like those (I completely disagree with Simon's statement that the shoulders are 'soft and natural').

Suitsupply's DB cut has the wide and slightly bellied lapels but shoulders are not structured like the Musella Dembach you posted.

Husbands Paris is above your price point; has the shoulders but lapels are not quite as wide.

Luxire can do this as a custom job at your price point but I'd consider this somewhat risky to pull off the right silhouette in a DB cut and wouldn't really recommend going that route. IMO DB is harder to get right vs SB.

Maybe Cifonelli RTW
Though 6x1 and not 6x2; otherwise similar silhouette
