  • 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.

Are the actual styles of the jacket changing or just bringing out new colours? Looking forward to getting one but need to gain another 20lb or so before i know my size!

Looking forward to seeing them, been holding out for a moto in grey.

After two months of waiting, cracked pepper fishtail arrived. Size small, slightly lengthened. I'm 6" (182.8 cm) ~140 lbs. (63 kg) for reference.

The hood is definitely a bit big, but like a knit cap you can just pull it back and have it rest on the top of your head.

Another note is that the liner folds in on itself if you're not wearing many layers beneath it. In the unzipped photo all I have is a sport shirt underneath so the liner sort of ripples and juts out as you can see on the right in the pic, its not really a problem just something worth noting.

The fabric is really lightweight but as soon as you put it on it takes just a few seconds to feel how warm and insulated it is. Because its so lightweight its a little difficult to button the collar up because it folds in on itself.

The liner was also stitched in places with navy threads which isn't a problem at all just something I found worth noting.

As for the oversized fit, its not an outrageous difference and imo it looks and feels very natural for this type of coat.

These are just what I thought the possible concerns for people may be, overall its one of the best purchases I've made since Ocarina of Time.

Looks great on you both, especially SPK though.

Now, citizens - now that you have seen this bodacious piece, buy mine before I use it for a blanket.

Fishtail looks fantastic. I love the big hood. And the fur, even though I'm not usually a fur person.
