  • 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 know we have our daily wear thread and the occasional comments about Scotts wonderful work but I thought it would be nice to have a central thread dedicated to the discussion of outfits from fit, to color combinations, to fabric choices.

I'll start it off with this picture of the elder Elkann.

I think its a very crisp look, very Italian of course but just right.

simple, comfortable and fitted. Colors seem a bit dull though, I'd have to throw in a bit of color myself.

I agree. I'm going to wear basically this same outfit tomorrow (the second pic) but with a much more colorful tie.

There is nothing in this pic I would like to try myself.

The jacket and sweater are both too heavy for my tastes (at least in that combo). The shirt collar is tucked in on one end and left hanging out on the other end of the sweater. The fit of the jacket doesn`t look so good either.

I like this a lot. It never occured to me to use a sweater to tone down some of my louder shirts. I think I'll do it today.

minus points for the square.
