  • 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.

Dear Friends,

After choosing a fabric for my second suit (first one was a birdseye navy) I am still somewhat unsure about how smart my choice was. The tailor recommended a grey birdseye but I opted for the fabric pictured below.
Does anyone have a suit from this fabric or something comparable (and can send me reference pictures), and, more importantly, have I gone totally offroad by choosing this fabric for my second suit?

Thank you in advance.

I think you are totally fine. VBC puts out nice stuff, and I think that will look pretty much like a textured solid from a few feet away. It will accomplish what you are looking for, I think.
