  • 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.

Interested in getting a pair of "italian" (i think) style hiker boots, love the look of the paraboot avoriaz and the viberg hiker but was curious if anyone had experience with either from a comfort/build/aesthetic perspective (i live in a city and these are not going to get much actual hiking use) - also open to other brands but in my search the danner and diemme options look marginally more "clunky" and not sure where else to look

Paraboot is probably way better option for what you get for the price. Another French brand Heschung is doing that style as well.
