  • 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.

What size shirt should I be wearing?

Hi ya'll,
I've never been a huge fashion guy, I just like to keep it pretty simple - jeans and T shirt mostly. Was hoping I could get some advice on here on what size T-shirt I should be wearing, i typically wear a medium, I feel that's a pretty appropriate size for my height and build but a friend recently told me he thinks I'm wearing my shirts a size too big. I'm skeptical about dropping down to a small, what do ya'll think?

I'm 6', 180 lbs. Not super buff by any means but I'm keeping reasonably fit, though I have gotten a little softer in the middle in recent years, I'm certainly not fat yet.

The black shirt is my traditional medium, the dark gray is a small...thoughts?

Medium or even larger, because your chest and arms look a bit snug in medium. It could do with being longer as well.

Small one looks like a wetsuit.
