  • 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.

Oxblood without a doubt

Ok, medallion sounds good.
Any thoughts on creasing?
Will the wingtips on the vamps of the budapest oxford allow for more creasing than the captoes?

Instead of both...I would suggest you consider the Old English II...on the U last...but add a medallion. You can also remove the V tip apron design

I like the look of the budapest oxfords better but only by a little bit.


Any thoughts or suggestions?

OP to my eye 6125 dark cognac with Italian polish or their burgundy cordo is closest to the Westons.

6125 is the most verstile Vass colour IMO. It's a dark dark red, just the right colour balance so the shoes look great without stealing the show ..

Thanks for all your input guys.
I've decided on the stock Old English II on the U last in Oxblood.
Only modification is a stitched throat opening instead of that weird
piece of leather at the bottom of the eyelets on the stock Old English II

Any objections?
