  • 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.

There must be a limit to rubber overshoes ...

SWIMS are worth the price IMO. Plus, they're actually $130 for the classics and $170 for the mobsters.

They are fantastic, and Revolve (SF affiliate link) had them on sale for $52 shipped. I received free shipping to Canada for that price, which was incredible. Not sure if they have any left though...

The jury's still out on SWIMS IMO. I bought a pair and the top seam ripped after 1 week of wear. Two weeks later, the seam on the other overshoe ripped.

What's worse, SWIMS customer service hasn't answered several calls or emails (which even included pictures of the defective merchandise).

Not what I would expect from a 100 euro pair of overshoes.

Did you get the right size? I found that their recommendations on that were bad and I went up an extra size instead. Also, Winn Perry in Portland has a few pairs left on sale for $60. M-L sizes only I think. http://winnperry.blogspot.com/

Hmm I think I would prefer to have a couple of pairs of dedicated rain shoes. I don't have to wear dress shoes every day though, I'm sure you M-F business guys have different needs.

I use them with some bespoke shoes, so I went by the centimeter measurements listed. I'd be curious to know how the cm measures worked with your shoes. Maybe I'll go larger...
