    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.

A close friend of mine is in Vietnam for a good amount of time. Is there anything I should ask him to pick up for me?

Suits, shirts, pants? etc..

Guy I work with brought back 5 bottles of the snake wine

the coolest one was def the one that has a scorpion in the snake's mouth, looks pretty gruesome

and you can haggle that ****, he paid about $5 for each bottle, the average price being around 10-12.

Actually you are wrong. My wife is from Vietnam and she is quite a good surfer. Granted there are no waves in Vietnam but a trip to Sumatra solves that. Surfing is quite popular among those that can afford it.

OP: There is really nothing there in terms of clothing that you would like. If you were buying for a girl, you could get the Ao Dai.
There are a few tailors in Saigon, Hue and Hanoi. Wouldn't like it though.

They take it as a health tonic normally around Tet in order to cleanse their bodies of toxins.
