    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.

Might try Crane Brothers, but I honestly think you would be better going online. You could waste a lot of time trying to find them in person. Finding sock suspenders is getting harder and harder, even from top quality menswear stores. I live in the US (Washington DC) and get mine from the UK.

Absolutely. They are a very anachronistic item, objectively speaking.
I've seen pics of Dandy Wellington with them but he's got a period wardrobe like few others.

I have a pet peeve about my socks slipping down, and so I find them still quite useful. People tell me that if I get this kind of sock, or that kind of sock, they'll stay up without the need for suspenders, but for some reason they never do for me. Maybe I have weird calves or something. So I really like them, but have had to get used to people staring at them and looking at me funny when I disrobe at the gym or have to take the suspenders off to go through airport security.
