    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.

Just bought a 'baby camel hair' jacket by Napoli for Carroll co. I'm still learning menswear so pardon my naivete.

Carroll&Co is a very old school, old Los Angeles menswear store. It was always very "preppy" as seen through LA eyes. Back when I lived on Pasadena, they had a store on Lake St., about 5 minutes from where I lived. Never my bag, but interesting for what it was. They've since dialed everything back to their original Beverly Hills location.

That jacket dates back to the 90s, at very least. I would guess early 90s, or even late 80s, from the typography and the style of that jacket. No idea of it's provenance, there are tons of suit manufacturers in Italy that do specific makes for specific stores.

Many thanks for the response. My dad bought most of his clothes from Carroll & Co up to the '70s. I've read maybe here that Napoli manufactured some of the Isaia (sp?) suits as well as some other high end ones. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part. Wouldn't be the first time.
