  • 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.

Already have a pair of the same golf shoes in my size (in traditional saddle burgundy black).

They’re pretty good golf shoes, in my experience. Do you not like them?
Spousal Customs probably imposed some kind of time limited amnesty.

Personally, I think the Black insoles were kinda neat, but I seem to recall people complaining that they stained their socks or something (I wanna say on SF… probably in the AE thread… because those guys are a bunch of whiners who like wearing oh so fahhhnsay socks).

I've only had one pair with the black insoles. They were fine in terms of comfort. I did notice that perspiration felt different, like it didn't get absorbed as easily as it does with the other AE insoles. Because of this, my feet would feel like they were slightly slipping when walking. Having said that, if we could go back to the black insole period of AE, I would much prefer that to the current post-Covid sneaker garbage.

I’ll never understand dress sneakers - the mullet of shoes.

Getting flagged for golf shoes is like being a cocaine-cowboy in the early 1980’s, doing low altitude drops over South Florida in the middle of the night, then getting picked up while leaving the airport for a dimebag of weed you forgot you had in your Members Only jacket.

Not my size. Got them to flip and narrows are slow movers in my limited experience.

Mystery shell Florsheim PTBs. E-thrifted these bad boys and then a cobbler rebuilt them.

Gentlemen, some slightly rough 92604s, (date code indicates 1969/79) in an unforgiving closeup profile view: are those faint vertical scratches a sign of inevitable cracking--should I pass?

They don't look quite like cracking. That would be an odd location, imo. Have you asked seller? You could negotiate for returnability. I always like to ask so that it is documented in case I need it.

What are some of the private label opportunities out there? C & J for RL and Alden for BB Peal & Co. are the ones that come immediately to mind. I imagine there are others. It seems those private label items occasionally sell at prices significantly below the Alden and C & J branded ones.

Alden for BB won't be under the Peal label, I believe. Peal will just be the British makers like C&J and Alfred Sargent. Some of the bigger ones that come to mind are AE for both BB and PRL. Sargent and Edward Green have both made for Paul Stuart.
