  • 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.

Currently my hours fluctuate depending on the days duties. I've pulled multiple 16 hours in one week, and many full (24 hour) days. THen i'll have a week of 4 hour days.

Isn,t this how politicians operate to this day. Those weeks that they work at least.

Not all of them drink though.

Some do drugs, some smoke cigarettes, and some play sports ( golf, basketball, jogging, biking, etc. ).

Mother's family was in banking. Oh, those were the days ... especially that last 3 ... at the course. Of course, it was the first three and the middle six that made it all possible.
