  • 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.

I recently added a post on my blog about gang leader Joe Bernstein of Detroit's Purple Gang - during Prohibition and up until the late 1930s, the Purple Gang controlled much of the illegal activity in Detroit. I recently came across a book with some excellent photos of Bernstein all decked out while attending his brother's trial for first degree murder in a triple homicide case. He's certainly got the classic gangster look down, and its easy to see where the gangster pictures of the era drew their inspiration from.
