Based in old Salzburg, Schneiders was founded in 1946 and quickly became famous for its stylish trench coats. The company remains true to its ethos of producing traditional, premium, distinctively Austrian, products, styled to meet modern demands for quality and comfort.
Working primarily in cotton, loden, wool, cashmere, suede and linen, Schneiders is now an internationally celebrated label with cult status, delivering authenticity, craftsmanship and exclusivity in the form of classic, timeless clothing that more than justifies its price.
Schneiders garments are immediately distinctive with traditional Austrian details, first class materials, perfectly cut and stitched to form uniquely classy, wearable clothing which stands-out for its quality and weathers into favourite shirt or jacket territory.
A distinctly Austrian look with its traditional collar and antiqued brass buttons, this delightfully easy-wearing, half-lined, mild-weather linen jacket is beautifully smart but unusual enough to add glamour to a casual evening, paired with jeans and Chelsea boots. The luxurious textured, coarse-weave linen hangs effortlessly and the colour is a flattering shade of deep gold. The fine linen contrast detailing is a deep green with a dark blue and flower motif half-lining.
Inspired by hunting jackets with a distinctly old-school military feel to the shape and features. The Paul is a garment-dyed, lightweight field jacket with smart enough detailing to pass muster in the best of company. The close weave of the outer shell provides shower-proof confidence and the soft cotton lining ensures immediate comfort.
Zipped inner and outer breast pockets for valuables, big patch pockets with flaps for larger items and side-entry for hand warming. Front fastening is by quality metal zip and horn buttons, each with Schneiders own branding. The working button-cuff completes the look. This is an easy-wear jacket for all eventualities.
A luxury gilet like no other, the Camil combines the ultimate lightweight warmth of the finest high-performance, high altitude clothing with the traditional weather-beating smartness of Austrian loden, in this season's must-have colour of dark burnt orange. Wear the Camil over a light sweater for effortless added warmth in the autumn, or layer under a coat when the thermostat drops unexpectedly low. Full length front zip, side-access pockets with press-stud closures, lined in a beautifully contrasting deep midnight blue.
An over-shirt worn over a T-shirt is effortlessly casual and The Leon brings the concept to its ultimate expression of style. Soft, natural brown suede is as wearable as heavy cotton but more luxuriously detailed and long-lived.
Meticulously stitched button holes and seams ensure the suede hangs perfectly and functions flawlessly. Two patch breast pockets provide stowage for cash and a 'phone, while side pockets allow for hand warming on chilly evenings.
The ideal compromise for when a jacket feels too formal but a top layer is required.
The Cai is Schneiders interpretation of the classic safari jacket, cut and detailed for everyday wear. The timeless, practical cut and ample pockets make the Cai ideal for any casual activity where comfort, ease of care and plenty of carrying capacity might be useful.
Garment dyed for a mildly weathered vintage look, each piece is unique.
Four big patch-pockets with hidden button-down flaps are complimented by two spacious inner pockets, one zipped for security. The cotton-blend technical fabric has a stretch to it, making for the ultimate in comfort. Horn buttons, carefully stitched detailing and a contrast navy and cream inner pocket trim add a dash of class to an ostensibly casual garment.
Taking the classic Safari jacket to its ultimate destination as a luxury casual garment, this is authentic enough to tempt one to actually take it on safari but in reality it is too beautiful to subject to thorn trees and swamps. Fine, flawless, ultra-soft suede, perfectly styled and crafted into a jacket that is effortless to wear and which becomes more impressive the closer it is examined.
The stitching is meticulously placed and helps structure the material, while pockets are deceptively easy to un-button and feel truly functional. Lined in sky blue with dark denim reinforcement, the jacket inner features a zipped, slant-entry security pocket and an additional button-closed hip-level patch pocket for wallet or 'phone.
The two big, external patch-pockets have additional side-entry for easy hand-warming and the fully-functional button cuffs provide additional styling options. The dark olive shade is perfect and the Safari jacket will, no doubt, age gracefully and become a lifetime favourite.
In addition to their range of menswear, Schneiders womenswear can also be found at Westley Richards. Each garment surpasses the expectation for style and quality even the most demanding customer might harbour.
Subtly beautiful, the Austrian collar and unstructured, loose-fitting aesthetic belies the careful tailoring and textured linen that combine to give this jacket its apparently effortless style.
Unlined, with button closure and hidden side-entry pockets, the Hailey Jacket makes an easy choice to bring a dash of class to an otherwise casual outfit.
The stylish cut and beautifully fine, close-weave cotton make this shower-proof top coat the clear choice for showery, blustery days between seasons.
With three internal pockets and two side-entry external pockets, there is ample storage for essentials, while the deceptively simple silhouette masks the fine stitching, perfect cut and subtle shaping that gives the garment its aesthetic appeal.
Like all Schneiders apparel, the Michelle impresses more the closer it is examined. A true classic.
Schneiders really do deliver classic, traditional coats and jackets in a manner that few if any, other labels can achieve today.
