  • 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 looking for brands of suits that can be worn in band performances/for stage. I get these suits are on the lower end, and not style forum approved, but not all suits for for business or business casusal. Below is an example of what I'm looking for, I've found some online options but i need a suit that can hold up and not fall apart during wearing and have a bit of pop. I understand I may only get 1-2 years max out of it, etc. If you know of brands that are decent in the style below or websites please feel free to share. *REMEMBER* these are for on stage / performance for a rock n roll rockabilly rhythm and blues band, not daily wear to the office.

go vintage , look for atomic fabrics , sharkskin , madras , western styled , anything from 1945-1960 . domestic ( USA ) tailoring was pretty high quality in those days .

if you are a smaller size it would be easier pickings most vintage stuff tends to run small by modern standards
