  • 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.

Once got halfway through shooting a suit for ebay when I found the inside of the pants absolutely caked with dried feces. Not sure if it was he or I who had the worse day. Enough cannot be said about thorough inspection in store.
sure it wasn't

I didn't take a picture, but found a local high school Florida State Champion ring from 6 or 7 years prior. It was wrapped in paper towels and stuffed in the toe in one of the boots. My kids went to the same high school and were acquainted with the coach. We dropped the ring off to him and he called the young man and returned it to him. Needless to say, he was not happy that his mom was throwing out stuff from his closet without letting him know.

Also, bought a backpack and when I got home was going through it and, in a small zippered pocket, found a pandora bracelet with 7 charms.

Who was the person that bought a sport coat on eBay and then found a small vile of 80s blow in the pocket?

I don't do pills or powders but I feel like that may be an obligation. Especially if the suit had a good return.

There's a joke about that.

My wife would always help me at thrift stores checking for certain name brands. She would start in sport coats, then outerwear, and finally ties. One day, while examining a pair of pants, she found some rather fresh deposits in the seat of a pair of slacks. Now, she will only search the ties... period. Plus, I am forbidden to bring any complete suits in the house unless they have been THOROUGHLY searched for dark matter.

This dude must've had an epic time at the 2013 Cheyenne Frontier Days!

Two cinnamon altoids, two Modafinil (a narcolepsy) tablets, along with a pin and a medal from the event.

He didn't need help falling asleep, and was clearly too drunk to use the Altoids while talking to women at the bar.


Like this, but replace Double XL with Triple XL

I bought a blazer off eBay that had a ticket for the Will Rogers Follies in San Francisco and a receipt from a nearby restaurant that is still open. Both were from the late 1990s. Someday I might try to retrace that evening. Will Rogers might not be playing, but a show at the same theater and dinner at the same restaurant, while wearing the same blazer, seems like a trivially magical thing to do.
