  • 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.

I've been looking at this painting for a few years now.. I own a few others by the same artist, but this one has always been kind of iffy.. there are days when I 'have to have it' and other days I can live without it.

I've looked at myself in person over 10 times, and I still can't make a decision.

the price is 1700$ CAD.

yeah, that's what I think as well.. but it has this iridescent paint on it, that sparkles in the sun.
makes it seems way nicer.

I don't think the guy's work is uniformly bad though. That particular one just seems a bit amateurish. Who is this guy, by the way?

I like the sunnyside series of paintings. Those look great.

Wouldn't it be a heck of a lot easier to just print out a screencap from Avatar?

He's a local artist, In regards to the sunnyside series... that's his current most popular work.

I have a few landscapes already, I know this painting is weird, and ugly.. but somehow it grabs my attention every time.
