  • 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.

By sheer luck, this Buck Mason linen shirt in my size just popped up on ebay!

Follow up: this linen overshirt is fantastic. I can't believe Buck Mason doesn't stock it anymore! The linen has a little heft but is soft and breathable. Wore it outside today in our oppressive DC heat.

How is Buck Mason, on the whole? Good stuff?
I like the full saddle pants a lot, have a couple pairs of the chinos and cords in that cut. Good value for the money. Want to try some other things.
I agree, very good value for high quality basics (meaning, no wild designs, but very versatile pieces).
@WoolyLamb just picked up a cotton khaki suit from their DC store. Care to weigh in?

Has anybody ever re-blocked a Panama hat? If so, is it reasonably straightforward/not heinously expensive?

It's mid-July in DC and the heat index is at 100. Time for my annual "Why is Paul Stuart flogging knitwear in this weather?" pic.

They did have a nice linen Safari jacket and some linen sport coats as well of course.

Serious question/observation: Wouldn't people on Yachts need light knitwear, even in the summer? Maybe they're catering to that.
I'm sure they are. That and air conditioned houses in the Hamptons.

I wonder if wearing a square scarf tucked under a crewneck sweater like in the pic below is actually a thing and if there are any practical benefits to doing it? I guess it would be nice under tailoring in order to minimise the damage to the jacket's collar.

Bit of a contrivance.

I can see the benefit of having some color or pattern between a flesh-toned knit and one's neck if you don't want the bulk of a collared shirt under the knit.
