  • 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 helping move this yacht, The Blue Peter, to its hurricane-season home. Only stop on the way is Bermuda, which has a 14 day quarantine policy so we won't be leaving the boat.

in the meantime we're trying to set a class speed record between Antigua and Bermuda.

I'll post updates in this thread if anyone is interested. Also if I die at sea someone please delete my styleforum history....

Nice looking craft and a good adventure! Shame you can't go ashore in Bermuda :(

How was the trip?! Did you set the class speed record? :lurk:
Nope. Too many things broke which is how it goes with sailing. long-distance journeys are always a war of attrition

Oh man, I would love to try something like this. I mean, I've only sailed like a handful of times and always on SF Bay but still, it'd be a once in a lifetime thing for me to sail that far on something like that! Preferably not during a pandemic, though. Still, very cool.
