  • 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.

Bulova Accutron M9. It has a nice brown band and antique gold face. It's a family heirloom kinda thing because i'm not a huge watch person. I'll get a picture of it tomorrow or so, it's pretty nice looking. Even though there are tons of accutrons out there, I haven't seen one with the same look/color scheme yet. Tuning forks ftw

I could use a new watch because right now I'm wearing a beat up crappy Fossil thing. I strongly dislike metal bands, however, so that limits me.

Good news: you're not limited as much as you think; 99% of the watches on the market do not have integrated bracelets, which means that most watches that you see can be had on a leather strap.

Interestingly enough I don't own any watches but was browsing the antique pocketwatch selection on e-bay. I really want one; I just can't afford it right now.

Never buy a watch on e-bay unless you really know what you are doing and know the seller...just asking for a fake.

for high school graduation i was passed on a unisex sized Cartier Tank Francais that was once my grandmother's -- i never wore it till i graduated from my undergrad, bc it was taken from me and stowed away in the bank safety deposit box, bc my parents were afraid i would lose it or someone would try to steal it. great story, eh? i have the no frills stainless steel one in the series (but the watch itself is by far anything but no frills).

when i'm not wearing that baby, i have a skagen and a swatch i wear.

You can't not post a picture along with a post like that.

I wear either a Mondaine Evo w/. Sapphire Glass or a gold plated classic styled Casio Digital.

- Rado Cerix (gents' model with the 6 diamonds)
- Rado Ceramica (model with white hands, black dial, black band)

I like the cutting-edge, almost futuristic, yet still-elegant design of Rado watches. Would buy the V10K if they actually released a model with a non-rubber strap.
