  • 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.

The “scientific” article posted to defend plastic wrinkle free shirts can be found on none other than Proper Cloth’s website, used to defend the safety of their own formaldehyde dipped non-iron shirts. Whether you believe its harmful or not, as for me, I am not going to put formaldehyde anywhere near my skin, just like I am not going to put anti-perspirant anywhere near my lymph nodes. Put your big boy clothes on after you iron your shirt busy man!


formaldehyde has the real likelihood of being an irritant to the skin and has no place in any clothing. Teknique 22 seems to be pedalling the contrary far too assiduously. It does not even work.

Stop being lazy, take pride in your appearance and iron your shorts properly.

You have serious mental issues to consider that an actual threat with no scientific evidence backing up your claim. Do you often believe in things with no hard evidence supporting them? We like to call those people "conspiracy theorists" in the real world. Or "psychos".

Anything has the "possibility" of irritating your skin. Even certain fabrics. It doesn't mean it's harmful to your health to the general population. I've posted numerous references and examples why this is the case and have yet to be refuted once. It just shows the lack of evidence and false premise this narrative is built on.

Again, not sure what educational background most of you come from, but it's completely insane to believe in these things with no evidence supporting them. Your tailors are giving you scientific advice and you're believing them without even inquiring into the sources or actual merit of the science behind it. It's completely "fake news" and none of you can even present and articulate argument or citation for the opposing viewpoint, yet you continue to believe.

If you're going to claim that a certain item is harmful to you, you have the onus to prove the claim backing that up. Which you cannot even do.

I have used the presence of formaldehyde in my non-iron shirts to convince my wife that I needed to buy some new shirts. Later I will use the expense of laundering my formaldehyde-free shirts as a justification to buy more non-iron shirts. They pay for themselves!

I can't believe this stupid thread came back to life. Plus, there is no such thing as a non-iron shirt.
