  • 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.

Tom Ford MTM Tuxedo

I'm getting married in September and I want a new tuxedo.
I'm not new to Black Tie and I own a Zegna MTM Shawl and a Suitsupply tuxedo.

I wanted to go the Zegna way but the last Black Tie creations from Sartori are not my favourite, and I always like the Tom Ford look.

I was undecided between Atticus and Shelton, having to decide on the moment I took measurements for an Atticus Jacket and Pants. But I have a few reservations, mainly about the jacket:
- Atticus is only offered in single vent. I don't like single vents.
- I want a structured and strong shoulder but looking online it seems almost too squared. I know it's probably the model too but THIS looks ridicolous. On the moment in the Boutique I didn't give the right attention to the shoulders.
- I fear that the button stance will be too low. I was almost at the limit and my jacket needed 2cm more in length.

Should I change and get the Shelton? The only thing I know for sure is that the Shelton can be ordered with side vents.

Anyone can help me?

Thank you!

Congratulations on the upcoming wedding.
Really pretty much impossible to give you specific guidance without photos. How much is too much shoulder structure on you? Can’t say without seeing the jacket on you.
