  • 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.

He's an electrician...
... and a part-time photographer.

He knows how to create a coherent look. The amazing thing is that his looks are so varied - everything from opera-formal to western wear and everything in between. I've learned lots following him on Instagram.

Yes. He is definitely an electrician, but checking his IG link tree and as @ppk stated he’s also a fashion photographer (https://www.peterzottolo.com/)

and the editor of the US edition of Plaza Uomo (https://plazauomo.com/product/plaza-uomo-usa-3/)

No idea if or how much clothing he gets for free or at a discount, but he’s definitely got at least one foot in the men’s clothing industry….

He dressed well first, didn’t get to do this editor stuff until like just a bit after Covid?

This is what I meant: his outfits are always flattering and coherent, from casual to formal and all the steps in between.

No matter if he had some of his clothes at a discount or even given away, he wears everything with innate style and elegance. He's a style icon.

Italian tailors are mostly responsible for aberrations like this, a ridiculously small jacket, where almost everything looks off.

Another one from the same maker with right proportions.

2nd just typical birdeye? First one would definitely work as sportscoat but suit…

For sure. But flashy seems to be the MO. Also this sport coat is nice, but would work better as a suit imo:

I’ve been checking out Husbands as well, and they also have an interesting/unique esthetic. I’m considering trying one of their core suits that don’t have the flared trouser.
