“If you don’t wear a topcoat, it’s because you don’t have one.”
One of my (George) maxims regarding an underused item of male fashion is a reminder that when people say, “I don’t wear a topcoat,” it is simply because they don’t have one. If you have a topcoat, you will find many instances to wear it. Whether the weather is cold, rainy and blustery, you need a classic look to top off a tuxedo or suit, or even if you are looking for a piece to wear over a sport shirt or sweater and jeans, a top coat is an essential piece.
The Locker Room carries one of the top lines in the world made by Schneiders of Salzburg, Austria. Established in 1946 as Schneiders Coat Manufactory with the motto “Everywhere at home,” the company produces “stylish, exclusive and high-quality fashions that combine tradition with a modern touch.” This classic clothier, rich in European style, design, and history states, ,
“Strength, consistency, an authentic feel and innovation coupled with a sense of tradition are the ingredients for success. A hint of luxury and understatement as well as superior craftsmanship and attention to detail bring the quality and durability of the company’s products to life. Use of the finest materials reflects the essence of true class: unobtrusive luxuriousness that reveals itself at the second glance.”
“The spirit of the past always lives in the present” - Schneiders slogan.
The Schneiders premium European Salzburg top coats use a unique Rainloden virgin wool textile that is so weatherproof, it is used for umbrellas. This approach gives the top coat a rich, soft hand and a very refined drape. With slash pockets at the waist, interior zip security pockets, a button front, center vent, 100% wool fabric, and 100% viscose lining, this top coat combines comfort, warmth, European style, and protection from the elements.
The Locker Room always seeks to provide the type of unique items that you cannot just find anywhere else. The Schneiders of Salzburg European top coats are exactly that kind of item and will become a regular part of your outerwear for all kinds of occasions. Top coats are far more versatile than is often imagined and like I always say, if you don’t wear one, that’s probably because you don’t have one.
