  • 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.

Firstly no not me, I wasnt in the presidio nor do I own a grey jacket and I am not big on drop crotch pants.

Having said that, why was it ridiculous if styled well then all 3 items can work, I would opt for drip sneakers over tornados with sweats which sounds like they were RO.
I do agree they can be styled well of course. I have some Japanese denim cargo shorts from Rick which work surprisingly well with simple styling (saying cargo shorts makes it sound very unfashionable but it's "desginer" and "avant garde" so it's cool). I think because they're shorts and they give a clean break between short and leg you don't have that short leg syndrome that longer dropcrotch pants tend to have, like the prisoner joggers. I enjoy those too but the styling often requires some heavy layering to look good.

Ouch. Unnecessary. Unfortunately starting to get too hot for leather now, but had a good season with my Joe McCoy’s type 3 unlined rough out jacket. I find that I reach for the same thing over and over.

The only leather jacket I wear in this weather is my Blackmeans bomber in sheepskin, which they did for Mr Porter at some point. I think I've unfortunately become too big for my Rick leather, which I can technically zip up but it ain't very pretty. When I say too big I mean it in a healthy and positive way, so it's just suffering from success I suppose.

Truly depends, I'd wear p14 bbs w/carol leather and boots that works, I think if one is going for a sporty more casual look the boots become out of place, combat boots can work at times but its tricky and I do agree would require laying

Anyone interested in this horsehide Addict Clothes AD-02L in 36? Only worn inside to get a feel for the size - tags still attached. I have the same model in a 38, and it is my most worn leather jacket - such a beautiful, thick horsehide and a fantastic cut.

Retails for $1725 from Butterscotch LB, but I'd let it go for $1100.

Picked up some leather while I was in Japan.

How heavy is the suede on those Y2 jackets?

Anyone done an appointment at Aero Leathers? I’m off to Scotland this autumn and was wondering if it was worth going for a consultation.

Considering how they tend to size people up (generally too big) I'd say it's definitely worth going to actually try on some jackets and if nothing on the floor fits, give them some exact required measurements, as long as you know what fits you.

Dotting my i's and crossing my t's on a Lost Worlds custom order.. I've scanned all the usual suspects and what I am seeking is simply not available used or off the rack. Stuart has been nothing but pleasant to deal with and gave me many options for lining, weight of the hide and particular measurements. I'll give this post a quote once it comes in!
I've just taken delivery of the coat... it is really quite exceptional, the fit is perfect and voluminous, the stitching exemplary and the hide more characterful than anything I've ever seen before. I will take some nice photos this weekend when I have some more time.
