  • 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. Shop the Loden collection here.

About a third of the way through with this book, and it is very well-researched and written.

Faith, Hope & Carnage..Nick Cave & Sean O’Hagan.

A long conversation about this, that and many other things. And God gets mentioned…a lot.

Reading Sinclair Lewis lately and absolutely loving it. So far this year, I've read Elmer Gantry, Babbitt, and It Can't Happen Here. All three just terrific reads, and It Can't Happen Here is unnervingly prescient both with WWII occurring after its publication as well as some recent...er, troubles... in the US. I just started Main Street yesterday evening. I think he may be my new favorite author.

Anyone here read much Rilke and have a recommendation on where to start? I have read so many books that quote or mention him I figure I should do some reading.

I thought the first 150 pages or so was average at best. It got a lot better when the pretense of a plot was abandoned

fair critique but I enjoyed it all, although I am admittedly a bit of mccarthy fanboy. Ill reserve final judgement on where it ranks among his other stuff once I read stella maris.

Just finished rereading Martin Arrowsmith… Started reading Lewis as a teen, definitely a favourite. He Bellow, Mann and Auchincloss are all on my favourites list.

I was prepared to not like it enough to read Stella Maris but I definitely will now.

Finished Mistborn book 1 - seems like a complete story. Are books 2/3/etc worthy of reading or is there a drop off?
