  • 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.

Di Fabio DB Twill sportcoat. Really nice color and fabric. Surprisingly lightweight with lots of character. Solid summer item. It look bluer than it actually is but it’s in the realm of navy. The twill, both in texture and thread coloring used for the weave, is very nice.

I wasn’t entirely sure about this when I saw it on the site, but that texture is on another level

Any real life pics/experience with this one?


Bored enough to run a search for you:

A little Spring Preview:

This is a Guabello Wool/Linen Wheat Hopsack in the Neo:

I didn’t end up keeping the jacket. The fabric is beautiful but I wasn’t completely happy with the fit.
Unfortunately, this is the best picture I have. The fabric has wonderful texture.
I think this is the first time I’ve seen the wheat jacket in action




Last year’s pink bd polo and this year’s wheat hopsack

He has a bunch of great photos with that jacket on his page.






Here is a shot of the Wheat Hopsack. Previous pictures motivated the purchase during the liquidation sale.

Thanks. I've been following dapperpassion's account for a while now and remember seeing those pictures. Never quite occurred to me that it's the same jacket tbh. Pics on SM website has too strong of orange hue going on.

What sportcoat would match these trousers?

Thanks for the input! Good to know that you had similar concern with mine :)


In the meantime, should I go for this? Was looking at the trousers but then I realized that it's also available as a suit. Any comparison between Fox Air and Minnis from experience?

I grabbed the trousers, Fox Air is fantastic, feels very similar to Minnis from the quick try on I did before sending them to be finished. I'm sorely tempted to grab the jacket now as well.

Assume you took the brown right? How does the color looks in comparison to the pictures on the website?

Yep the tobacco brown. Judging off my screen, I'd say it has a bit more depth and a touch more of a red-ish tone than it appears on the site. It looks great with snuff suede, colour 8 cordovan, black....it's just a great colour!

I’ve got to say- trying to order a custom shirt today through S&M’s website caused so much frustration I completely scrapped the thought of ordering. I spent over an hour, trying different browsers and even different devices, and I could NOT get it to save a size profile or let me add more than one shirt to the cart. I want to support the brand but how is this even a problem?

suggestion: shoot a note to SM on Instagram. They are on IG now. Tell them what you are trying to order. they will want to hear about the problem and can probably help you get your order in

I had the same issue earlier this week, was using Chrome and for the life of me could not get it to work. Switching to Firefox allowed me to add more than one shirt to the cart, but I wasn't able to figure out how to save a new size profile.

Has anyone emailed SM asking to stack coupon codes? I want a sweater and a custom shirt but can’t use both coupons to do so. I’d ask them myself but it could be three days before a response.
