  • 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.

I'm reviving this thread as seems to be proper etiquette rather than start an identical one.

What good sales are going on in Chicago at the moment. I will be there later in the week with a few hours to kill. I will be staying on Michigan up near the Water Tower. My shopping list is primarily ties (on the thinner side in spring/summer colors) and summer casual shirts, but I am open to just about anything at the right price.

I believe that the Hickey Freeman store on Oak store is still having its semi-annual sale. I think it is something like 40% off of most non-sale items.

The Paul Stuart spring sale started today. That's always my favorite store to go to when I am in Chicago.

- Their tie selection isn't what it used to be, but if you're looking for classics there's no better place.

- Also, PS socks (especially their heavy gauge wool) are my favorite socks.

- Some of the Grenson Masterpieces have been discounted from the $680 range down to $380.

I don't know. I'm sure the stores will tell you. Paul Kelly, the HF manager, is great. Work with him if you can.

Are alterations included? If not, I might just stick with the Internet, where I've purchased 5 HFs and 1 PS without paying the outrageous Illinois/City of Chicago sales tax.

For OTR suits, I don't know for sure, but I think it does. But they may cut out free alternations with sales. I have to buy MTM (which of course includes it).
