  • 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.

New paper chinos up -- though they're only labelled as such in the description rather than the title.

I was thinking these might make a good alternative to The Armoury's olive sport chinos. But from reading a few impressions in this thread of previous iterations of the paper chinos, it seems like the consensus wasn't great. Any thoughts?
I know the sport chinos are crazy expensive but there’s honestly no substitute. Save up and bite the bullet imo.

I just dug out a pair of linen blend chinos from a couple seasons ago and I forgot how much I love them. I hope they offer them again this summer.

Planning on ordering my first custom shirt(s) soon. Any insider tips to ensure I don't completely whiff this? I remember before folks used to ask for fabric to be pre-soaked in the notes, but not sure if that's still a thing, or if its even relevant since I'm going with linen.

Want to buy their cotton/modal t-shirts and want the advice on the sizing. I am 36" chest, usually Small and have the Next Level t-shirts in size S that fit well (179 cm, 70 kg). Should I go with S or XS, in your opinion?

All of my S&M OCBDs shrink about an inch in the sleeves, even when taken to a professional cleaners. I'd like to get some MTO OCBDs made but am wondering if I'll need to account for shrinkage and go up a sleeve size? Anyone had some expereince?

I got an inch longer in the sleeve than I usually do after this happened to me on my first OCBD I bought. I’m usually a 15 33, got a 15 34, washed it and the sleeve was perfect.

Tried the same thing with another one of their non OCBD shirts and didn’t work, needed to get the sleeve shortened.

Having the sleeves altered but I can confirm (candid shot in mirror) the Neo 3 cut looks really good! To echo someone else, I hope they make it a suit.
