  • 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.

Btw I should say thank you from the recommendation you made for a women’s tailor in dc a couple of months ago. I took my daughter for a suit on her birthday this month, and enjoyed talking with Ezra enough that I’ll probably get a jacket when we pick up her stuff later in the summer.
I would love to hear how that turns out. My wife could use a nice new business suit imo and if we can get her something more than her usual Jcrew stuff I think she would love it.

I just dropped off my EG Dover-esque RLPLs at Sky Shoes for resoling. Hetam informed me that Aram is doing well and has closed his Virginia shop. There doesn't seem to be any animosity between the two, which is good. I'm going to give Aram's resoling a try next.

Aram is just doing resoling now. He's not selling Aldens. But, he's still got access to Aldens original soles and heels FWIW. He also has JR, Vibram, and dainite products. One of his best features is that he does pickup and drop off around the DC area.

Glad to hear that they are friendly again.

Yes, he closed his shop because of health issues with his kidney. His wife is a nurse if I recall correctly. It’s been a long time, back when he had a shop in Springfield, I’d stop by and talk shop when I had time on the weekends. Always a nice guy.

I'd never heard of this place before. Does he often do men's shoes? Website seems to focus on women's shoes and handbags.
I found it with a Google search. Good reviews, including from men. Owner (Pete) was very conscientious, made helpful suggestions and told me what was included in the total package. It was over $300, but that seems to be the going rate for a good resale.

It’s wild how expensive cobblers are charging to resole these days. I’ve talked to bespoke shoemakers who’d resole my shoes for 3-400€ (if they made them).
