  • 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. Shop the Loden collection here.

Can you post some photos of what you're referring to? Dior makes pointy shoes.

I thought that but winklepickers are generally plain. Where as the Japanese have taken them on and styled them differently.

If you want something a step up from Bannister, you might want to try Cesare Paciotti, Alberto Guardiani, Gianni Barbato, or Jean-Michel Cazabat. All four of these are fairly pricey ($400-600), but they are also often very pointy and the quality is a lot nicer than most. Good luck! I have a few pairs of Guardianis and Cazabats and, while they are certainly not good for a business meeting, look great with jeans and are quite fun.

I have a problem with any shoe with those paper thin soles. They probably great for walking on carpet in a Las Vegas Hotel but for any real walking they seem useless.
