  • 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.

Currently, I own three - all mtm. I'm aiming to bolster that number a bit. They are:
- 2 Enzo Custom Clothiers (1 semi-spread, 1 spread, both broadcloth)
- 1 Proper Cloth (english spread, broadcloth)

My other shirts are either light blue and several other mixed patterns like gingham and grid. I've come to realize that a solid white shirt is the easiest and most versatile choice to own in a wardrobe, so why not stock up on a bunch? It's nice to express yourself with different patterns and colors from time to time; it can be a tons of fun, but also a headache trying to match patterns in colors when wearing a tie. On the other hand, it's much easier to go business causal when picking out the shirt and only a shirt (jacket or no jacket) is usually not hard to do. Plus, a white dress shirt, for all its cliched ubiquity, is still a very attractive look that can always be pulled off by any man of any age.

Around 8, seconded by blue at around 6. These are not counting patterned shirts. For me, it's difficult to beat the universal white shirt which always looks crisp and smart. I would also argue they are not boring when you apply them correctly

Six, but only two, a French cuff broadcloth from Chan and a Mercer OCBD, are really decent.

By way of contrast, I think I have about 15 "first-tier" blue (or predominantly blue) shirts, a couple from Chan, the rest from Mercer.
