  • 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.

Thoughts on one of these Saburo’s?
I like dark havana better on you. It's a sleek frame with oversized navigator-esque shape and have subtleties.

I would add a gradient lens indoor and that should look wicked. It's a thinner frame and I feel making it outdoor transitions as sunglasses would lose it's structure and would be bit blah. Otherwise JMM would have made this as sunglasses to begin with.

I've recommended this shop before, as they're my local go-to.
When I wanted a pair of Enzos, she had them in stock but not the color I wanted.
She sourced them for me in one day.
Astrid is the owner.
Piggybacking, just went in today and I saw Quentin and cash in quite a few colors like hickory fade, bloodstone etc

Thanks to everyone who has commented. Looks like I’ve tracked down a pair here locally. Seems like there are maybe more out in the wild than I thought. 🤘

Looks like they bumped up the prices by $25 on Cash and Quentin. I paid $850. Now it's $875 showing on the JMM website.

Mine arrived today at my shop from Pre-ordered ones in May. Picking up Monday.

These prices are out of control. Something needs to be done!

That would require folks to stop buying them at those prices then.;)

Difficult to happen. JMM was a niche brand, known to few people, by now it has much grown and many admirers compete for the limited frames. It's a market rule, as the demand is higher than the offer, prices will increase. Inflation is also a factor, of course.

The only hope is an ethical behaviour by side of JMM, to prevent them from an excessive speculation.

Absolute insanity. A few years ago, JMM frames were in the mid $600s. It’s not fair to the consumer that they’ve increased 50% for no reason except for some fat cats to get fatter. I’m trying my best not to buy anymore. I love my current collection and my JMM online family, but I’m pretty dog dang tired of this flim flam. Sorry for my harsh language and the rant.
