  • 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.

All finished. Having never seen a GH before, and not having any dye formula to follow, this is as close as I will be going. It's certainly possible that someone else could do a better job, but this will do for me. The coloration is subtle, and I think it will be difficult to get the "correct" color in both sun and shade. The direct sun overpowers the yellow tones and leaves it more in the walnut range. These will do until I magically stumble across a MTO GH that someone had made in my size. (which will never happen.)

Not an expert either but these looks like very fine shoes. Where did you buy them? and can I be so bold as to ask you the price? The nails in the heels ! I like them.

I have another new pair with the original box and bags in black Horween shell cordovan in size 10D, they are original run Duckie Brown collaboration. If you're interested let me know.

That’s a spectacular job. GH color is all over the place. Your version looks as good if not better than the best versions. Congrats. Wear them in good health.

Hi experts! Would one of you know the answer to this question: did Weyenberg ever make shoes in shell? Thank you.

Wearing these to evening Vespers: they're Wright Arch Preservers in 13B. Normally a B width would be a no go, but I guess they're a bit generous as they feel OK. Photo makes them look a bit more bright red than they actually are.

That is a great point that I was not considering. I was thinking only from the value perspective that including the new welts is good because it does not cost an extra $80 for welts. BUT, as you pointed out the welt does not have to be replaced every time and by replacing it with a machine, it would actually weaken the upper. Great point!

as it turns out, I don’t have a pair of AE that needs a recraft except for a pair that has so much wear, it would not make sense to do a recraft anyway.

I almost had a pair recrafted when they had a special. They were offering a $100 credit for a new purchase with a recraft service on an old shoe. But, I realized the particular pair of tassel loafers had a tear in the instep that could not be fixed.
I've used them before. And I probably will again.

These are Weyenberg, from their latter years of waning quality. Blake stitched. I got them NOS and replaced the crazy original plastic heels.

Good enough for a grocery run and from a distance they look like they could be shell, but they’re not. But for ~$30, I’m happy.
