  • 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.

Cheers.

They are fitted, yes. Both the body and arms are narrow.

We will have some photos of them being worn by the weekend.

In the meantime, the mannequin (with a 38" chest) is wearing a size small. There is a shirt worn underneath, and it is a comfortable fit with plenty room to move and breath (were the mannequin able). With a thick jumper underneath, the small would not suffice — it'd have to be a medium.

The measurements of the garments on our site are all done by hand, and are precise, so if in doubt, you should fine them a reliable guide.

SEH - Not yet a custom (it's currently 41 degrees celcius here in rural Australia!), just wanted to say I often find your clothes exceptional, and looking at that shawl sweater currently available, well, I'm dreaming of weather cool enough to order it!

Keep up the great work,

Your admirer,

Loner!

As there are no fit-pictures so far in this thread, I will humbly offer up a couple of snaps of myself wearing SEH Kelly items...

First up, the Tour jacket (which I always thought fit me really well, but on the photos appears to have really long arms?). The second shows the light green cord trousers (the same colour as the Tour jacket).

The sleeve-length of the tour jacket (above) are the same as the peacoat.

On most people (sorry Nick) they are standard length ... although we have found with some larger customers that they are somewhat short, and thus we are extending them, in future, by between 1-2cm.

Great looking coat! Next time I'm in London town, I'm going to visit your studio.

Sorry, no -- no more will be made.
 
Thank you to all for the kind words. Much appreciated.



That's profoundly disappointing. Moment I saw it written up in the telegraph I knew it would go fast.

Think next time you may think of a larger run. Youre getting to much press just to make six. If someone cancels on a medium do send me a PM!

Yep, will certainly let you know about the M.

The uncertainty of the hand-weaving cloth project at its outset, coupled with the time-consuming nature of the process, meant that fewer peacoats were made than might've otherwise been the case.

Having said that, it is not our way to make many of any particular garment anyway. But with time, yes -- hopefully we'll be able to keep the factory busier.

Looks like I just purchased the last peacoat in Large :) It will be my first SEH Kelly piece, and am very much looking forward to it.

First custom from the good ship Styleforum much appreciated.

And for what it is worth, the one remaining Large has come back in (exchanged by a customer for a Medium this morning).
