    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.

Fwiw, Alden's commando sole is really just a topy. Look at Vibram's catalog for some good options

Never thought of it this way but it’s actually true. I prefer commando over the leather/topy combo but I have done it many times for boots that I really wanted.

There's also the layer of rubber in the front of the mid-sole that seems to help keep the toe from getting chewed up, and is probably why Aram charges so much to do a full conversion (vs. a resole or topy), but indeed it is otherwise a thin layer of rubber stitched and glued on.

I suspect this construction is why the Alden Commando is my favorite sole. You get a grippy tread along with the benefit of double leather, which is that it molds well to the feet. I have a pair of Dainite soles and while the padding is comfortable, it seems like my feet try to mold them and they just bounce back.
