This is one of the best heavyweight fabrics that we have ever sourced. Woven in Italy, our exclusive Alpine Loden is exceptionally warm, comfortable, and practical. Your custom garments will offer years of faithful service, and they can be crafted across our full range of in-house styles and sizes. Each one will be made in the United States by Rochester Tailored Clothing.
For centuries, Loden wool has been woven in Tirol - the mountainous region between Italy and Austria. This rugged cloth is often considered to be one of the first performance fabrics, as its finishing process made it uniquely resistant against cold and wetness. Although Loden wool comes in many colors, it's most popular tone is a distinctly elegant shade of dark olive green. 
For this exclusive project, we've sourced an exceptional and modern iteration of this storied fabric. Our "Alpine Loden" is an 18oz blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon. 
Compared to traditional Loden, our Alpine Loden is lighter, more durable, and more wind resistant. It protects against light moisture from drizzling or snow. 
And crucially, it's comfortable. Traditional Loden is quite coarse, and many wool-nylon blends are somewhat rigid. Our Alpine Loden has a nice hand, a lofty feel, and a wonderful drape. You'll get all of the performance, and all of the elegance at a great price. 
Sportcoats in Alpine Loden are dry clean only. Trousers may be machine washed cold and hang dried. 

Rochester Tailored Clothing is based in the original Hickey Freeman factory in Rochester, New York. Dubbed "the Temple of Fine Tailoring," this storied facility has operated for over 120 years and boasts a peerless team of skilled craftspeople. 

Body Length & Sleeve Length: Order our standard, or select length from dropdown menu. Sleeve length can be specified at a specific sleeve inseam (down to a half inch measurement) in our Additional Comments box. 

Interior Construction: Our sportcoats include standard half-canvas construction. You may upgrade to full canvas (extending down to the bottom of the hem) for an additional $150. 

Pockets: Welt or open patch breast pockets. Inset with flap, open patch, or open patch with flap hip pockets.

Lining: The shoulders, sleeves, and upper back will be lined with your choice of fabric. The body is unlined and finished. 

Buttons & Sleeve Finish: Choose from a lineup of horn resin buttons, metal buttons, or genuine mother-of-pearl buttons. Sleeves can be unfinished, partially finished, or functional (Surgeon's Cuffs)

Waist: Our standard shape generally works for a Drop 5 to Drop 7. So if you wear a size 40 jacket, the waist should taper well from a 33 to a 35 pant. If you require more or less room in the waist, please specify in full inch increments in Additional Comments.
