  • 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.

Some people are trying to sell the Armoury trial pairs as real St Crispins pairs and that's a shame. Some people (the victims, unsuspected buyers) when they receive them they think that they are St Crispins made for the Armoury and keep it at that, but no, they are trial pairs for which one should not be willing to pay more than $50. So people out there who look to get a cheap pair on eBay watch out.
This one looks like one of them. As you can tell, the leather looks like garbage. I would bet any amount this is a trial shoe. Don't any of you guys pay more than $25 for this pair. And that's including shipping.

Unfortunately, this is worse than buying fake.

Longtime admirer of this thread, first time actually posting. Acquired these over the past few years. Hoping this excercise with prove cathartic and ramp back new pickups in 2020. Unlikely, but will give it a shot. Happy holidays everyone.

What are the black captoes (model and leather)? They seem ideal.

The only negative part is... they’re just so flawless in fit finish and execution, I’ve already started on the next shell mto ?‍♂️
