  • 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 retailers already have items which were released weeks later than mentioned trousers. That's what makes it strange. Perhaps there is no demand for it among retailers?
Where do you live? If it's the US or Canada, hit up S&S or LostFound and special order them. I did that with S&S for the SS23 Aloha Shirt and some hangers.

Any Resolute 710 owners here? If so, could I trouble you for size and fit advice? From what I have read, they seem to run small. Is this correct and if so, is that in waist, thighs or overall? Did you size up in waist only or in length as well?

On first spec, these Mr. Freedom Stan Ts (seconds) are dope. Super soft, and good fit (for me).
+ 1. I've had 4 for a decade. Nice texture, good hand, comfortable, drapes well, period authenticish detailing. The one negative, good shoulders but baggy body in my size. On the other hand, I have not been able to wear these out over ten years.

I normally don't care for horizontal striped t shirts because they remind me of when I was ten...and not particularly stylish. This shirt, and the overall color palette, is strikingly attractive to me though. Best looking striped t shirt ensemble I can recall.

Updates on my Warehouse 1000xx & 1000xx Dead Stock Blues. These jeans are really starting to come to life, definitely my favorites in the collection

Thinking it may be time to offload some of issues of Free & Easy and Popeye, although I feel I need to re-read through all 60 or so of them and who has time for that?

About 3/5ths of my F&E and some old Popeye, Lightning, rando to boot.

Let me know if interested.

This is my 2nd pair from them, the first being these e-width PTBs while these moc toes are on their D-width last. I'd say if you have abnormal sizing considerations to email them as they're very responsive but they recommend 1 full size down from brannock for their e-width (314 last) and half size down for their d-width (12248 last) footwear. That's what I went with and they fit very well for me.

Build quality is very good by my standards. They're built like tanks while still being comfortable. I honestly don't have any critiques to throw at them.

Awesome thanks! Might have to visit their shop when I’m in Japan this year

Anyone have experience with Asahi shoe sizing? I've heard they run big, so I'm debating sizes. Unforunately, most retailers are overseas so I'd be taking a gamble.

Usually size 11 in sneakers (11.5 in Nikes) and waffling between 28 and 29 on the slip on deck shoes

Do you have any experience with Alden or Grant Stone? If so, curious how these compare...

No Alden but I've got a pair of suede GS. I'd take Wheel Robe over GS personally because I prefer their soles and know my sizing better but you can't go wrong either way. GS appears to have slightly sleeker lasts, tends to be ~40 bucks cheaper and has way more options in terms of styles and leathers whereas WR is roomier and maybe a tad bit sturdier. My suede GS's were used when I got them but I haven't experienced any need for break in on my two WRs as they were comfortable out of the box. But that's just based on my very limited experience with both.

I love "repro clothing", but hate the prices, so I gave some Chinese brands a chance. Tested now for around six months garments made/labeled by Bob Dong(T-Shirts), Sauce Zhan(Jeans and Jacket) and Okonkwo(Shirt).

Could it be, some Japanese, or even the RRL stuff is also made there? Especially denim. Never had, or saw a better made jacket as my Sauce Zhan.
