  • 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.

Gentlemen, either the Alden execs heard your calls (lol!) for the return of a machine stitched shell Indy boot or the backlog of hand sewn models drove them to pivot…either way, machine stitched shell Indy’s are back! First model I’ve seen is from Halo Shoes but I’m sure there are other models in the works.

Been a while but called a last-minute audible and went unlined 8’s from BB. Still hard to believe these are no longer made. Couple indoor and one outdoor shot (pre sunrise)………

But the best shot of all is this one……

For those who recall, these were repaired by Aram and today was the first full day wear. Previously decided that they would likely be relegated to sockless summer wear but went with medium weight socks today. Wore them pretty hard. Lots of walking and plenty of stairs. They handled everything I threw at them. Thay are now airing out as they wait for trees and wiping.

Hallelujah! Just in time for Easter, the resurrection of the machine stitch Indy.

Happy Good Friday for those who celebrate Easter. Time for some 6 eyelet chukkas.

UPS just dropped off these Color 8 beauties from Ealdwine! Love the mahogany edges and flat 270 welt which really ties in the sleek Plaza last. The blind eyelets complete the look and make for a stunning boot! Some Renovateur and GG laces will be next, but I may opt to keep the round laces that @Misterg12 included.

Those are phenomenal looking boots there! I remember when Color #8 on Dark Edges was the norm with only Leffot, Epaulet, and Bureau Belfast offering anything with Antique. Now it is reversed with virtually no special makeups on Dark and the majority with Antique. Regardless, those are great and should last you a long time!

Easter Sunday tomorrow and I decided to do a little shoe maintenance on the very first pair of Alden I owned. #8 cap toes. Perfect for a suit and a little time in church.
