  • 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.

Well. A dumpster has one opening. If you are loading it with cement, tile, etc, then it behooves you to load it at the end with no opening "the back" of the dumpster. You fill up a trashcan with about 150-200 lbs worth of material, cart it to the opening, barrel roll that to the back and dump it.

The walls of the dumpster are about 6'. So, it doesn't make sense to dump it at the opening; because, that path of least resistance early on means you are going to be lifting a lot of weight over your head. There's a methodology to everything.

I don't know why I even hired the dude to begin with. I mean, I do, this weekend was supposed to be electrical work, as I only have like 10 days until I go to work for 4 months, and I have a lot to do.

But so much carelessness. I need to just do all my work myself. I can demo a room and not put a single knick on any woodwork. It takes time, but it's the only way. I put in a lot of effort to dust control, fanagle the AC so it only pulls from clean areas, HEPA filters in various places, etc.

So my real job is both. Paperwork just continues to increase each year. You just have to work more hours each day to comply.

I started from the bottom...chipping and painting. Now I manage a 25 man department.

I usually have to change multiple time thru the day. Overalls while working, button down shirt when driving, I can get by with a polo at meals.

No hats while eating, can't wear work clothes during meal hours, no facial hair allowed. Work for 4 hours. Shower, change, eat. Change again, work, shower, change. Story of my like 0800-2200.

My life is just rules. I think it makes perfection.

I also sometimes forget I'm the rare blue-collar guy of SF.
