    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.

Yeah I do quite like them as well. I can imagine that the colours burnish and darken nicely with a bit of wear. I would consider indulging but I have now gotten to the point where even the thought of buying something new tires me.....
It looks quite good. The bright colours are very loud but the details on the leather are rich. They are currently in the shop window display.

I was just going to post on this ...but only relatively limited styles on there ...mainly shoes ....and some 'funky' boots (like the weird coloured ones that came up recently). I am sure they used to have almost everything on before. 67 men's at least ..19 for women.

anyway good selection of sizes ....added a filter if you wanted a quick look Mens sale Womens sale

A question about polishing C-Shade Tan. Tricker's advise to use "Neutral Polish to help maintain a pair of shoes in C-Shade. If you would like to add some more colour to your C-Shade leather then they advise using Fawn Polish". Has anyone here used fawn polish on c-shade tan? Does it alter the colour or matt texture of the c-shade leather as a result?

I haven’t used fawn polish on c shade but I wouldn’t recommend it and I think it would definitely alter the matt texture. When I discussed this at the factory shop many years ago they strongly recommended using dubbin on c shade to keep the texture.

Really? Dubbin on a flat tone matted leather. Did you try it on then? What did you make of it?

Isn't fawn also used for the Acorn Antique? And doesn't Dubbin darken your boots?

For the Acorn I'm using Saphir neutral creme and wax now. Without the shine, it looks very dull/lifeless/used. The Acorn doesn't lend itself for a mirror polish, but with some shine it pops nicer.

Don't know about C-shade, never seen it in real life. I find those two colors difficult to describe but both beautiful.
