  • 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.

@jonathanS I went to suit supply and found a gray suit off the rack that was phenomenal. Shortening the pants, more seat room to help the pockets fall flat, and shortening the jacket sleeves slightly and bringing in the waist of the jacket slightly are the only alterations I needed. Pleasantly surprised they had something off the rack that fit and wish I had just started here a month ago
Congratulations! Don’t worry about mistakes. We’ve all made them.

It's better for sure. However, it's still too tight in the chest and arms. The trousers are also too tight. You can tell from the back picture where you can see the trousers are not draping, but catching on your legs.

The ripples in the back are also an indication that the jacket is too tight.

Update: Enzo reached out to me and were apologetic about my experience. They've asked me to come back in (scheduled for Friday measuring) to give them a chance to make another suit for me, complimentary. I agreed and will likely see the suit around end of July where I will share my updated experience and fittings.

Good on them and I expected as such based on prior conversations with Arthurt the store manager.

How much was the suit if you don't mind me asking?

Arthur is the person they’ve scheduled my follow up measuring with. I look forward to meeting with him if you’ve also had a good experience.

Using Super 150 and going fully canvassed it was $1237.14. They’re matching the same style choices and fabric choice in this second attempt.

Thanks!

There is a Suit Supply near me so I'll head there after work. At this point, going cheap and splurging later is probably going to be my best option.

I went to The Armoury last month, but they only had 2 jackets RTW that fit me. (They weren't colors I wanted, but they were very kind!) :(

Going MTO at The Armoury would be out of my budget I think. However, in hindsight, I would have rather had a good experience for the higher cost.
Your last sentence is bang on. It may feel expensive just now but if it is only slightly out of budget then you will likely feel much happier with your purchase than something a little less that doesn't quite hit the mark.

What is the armoury mto these days?

Maybe sartoria carrera x no man walks alone would be a good option if you’re in New York.

I believe it was starting around $3k when I asked. They only had 2 RTW jackets that fit me, but not in colors I was interested in.

No Man Walks Alone was going to be my next purchase when I’m ready to treat myself to another suit.
