  • 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.

Oh? you can rate your own threads? I didn't know... this changes everything! Anyway. Any views on the subject? I'm not nearly so dedicated to the cause as these guys, bit I've really started thinking about how I write.

I once heard a saying something like "he talks like a bar mitzva boy" suggesting that young jewish boys used very complex and unnecessarily sophisticated vocabulary. I recognized that that was the case with myself, and took to simplifying my language. on top of that - I spend at least half my time with people who speak English as a second (or third) language. I use very simple straightforward language and grammar.
