  • 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.

Hand sewn Indy boots are just getting harder to find in general. Especially with a dark mahogany welt.
Right. I tried to arrange a fitting at several stores in the (very broad NE/ NY) area and got nowhere. Ended up ordering them from Alden Shop San Francisco. They came in today - look and feel just right. Never sported such a fine boot before, they are tremendous. Heavy duty too. God bless the USA makers.

Some shops will run it if you can get 6 or so people to commit… just sayin’. I’d understand if you don’t want to share the details here, but you might get some traction.

Right, I think Alden Madison does "crowdsourcing" of makeups, if I'm not mistaken.

I have no problem sharing! I know some shops were doing that a while ago but wasn't aware that any still were.

Essentially, I'd love to see a 2x2 Captoe w/ Speed Hooks, Trubalance (obviously), C8 (or one of the lighter shells, if I can dream a bit), 270 Antique Flat Welt, Neocork Sole, Thomas Heel. I think it would look amazing, be a super comfortable walker, and be nice enough to wear out to dinner while on a trip with my wife.

Its pretty similar to the Brogue Warrior PT, which I didn't realize until after I thought about it, but in the 2x2 pattern.

I know wedge soles are polarizing, but SOP has a loden suede captoe on TB I've always really dug.


Flexing on us two ways: gorgeous boot pics and in the gym! 💪

Snow is on the way so the Indys come out to play.
