  • 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.

Los Angeles - Bespoke Suit Help

Hi all, I am looking to find an amazing high-end tailor in Los Angeles for a bespoke black peak lapel suit. I do not want a tuxedo, I own two and love them.

I am looking for a lightweight black suit (but not so lightweight that it looks casual) that I can wear to multiple formal events. The only brand I've found that makes this suit is Tom Ford. While I love TF, I am not sold on the value of it relative to a bespoke suit. The classic Tom Ford two button black peak lapel is the look I'm going for here.

For whatever its worth, I have broad shoulders. Have been looking at Battistoni but read on here that their suits are quite heavily padded in the shoulders and I'm not sure that's going to be right for me.

I'd like to keep this under $4-5,000 but flexible. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
