  • 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.

The 'traditional' closet?

Does anyone know what is the proper way to store clothes in your closet? Shirts/jackets are obviously hung on hangers but what are you suppose to do with pocket squares, ties, socks? Are pants suppose to be folded in a shelf or should they also be hung on special hangers? Of course it is easy here to improvise but I want to know the the 'right' way to organize my closet.

I dont think there is any "right" way, but there are some rules you must work around, never hang sweaters, if you hang pants never on the hangers they clip too, etc.
For pocket squares just get a nice little box, somewhat decorative, and place them all in that. Doesnt even need to be in your closet then. Socks and underwear have always been jumbled together for me, but to each their own.

large leather box where my ties sleep rolled,
