10 Reasons Why We Love Schöffel
Thursday, 25 August 2016 14:18:08 Europe/London
Over 200 years of history: Established in 1804 in Bavaria Germany, Schöffel is still a family business and has thrived through seven generations to be a market leader in quality outdoor clothing.
We have a long connection: The Schöffel Country range started with the iconic Ptarmigan shooting coat. The first design was created using the combined knowledge and expertise of Asprey's of New Bond Street, Farlows of Pall Mall, James Purdey & Son of Mount Street and ourselves, Roxtons.
Lovers of technology: Schöffel has always embraced the latest in waterproof and breathable technology and were one of the first companies to use Goretex in their shooting coats. The ever-popular Schoffel gilets are made from machine washable Polartec thermal pro fleece making them lightweight and super-warm. Schoffel Tweed has a superior combination of 100% pure new wool; lambswool for luxurious softness and worsted wool for strength, durability and an attractive texture. The highly durable GORE-TEX® Z-Liner technology behind the Tweed makes it 100% waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. They’re even moisture and stain resistant thanks to the Teflon® finish.
Lightweight and practical: From their shooting coats to their gilets, Schoffel strives to make their outerwear warm, waterproof but also lightweight. The Ptarmigan shooting range uses lightweight and washable Gore-text tweed, meaning it doesn’t capture moisture but is still sturdy enough to keep you snug for a days shooting. The gilets are all about layering and can be worn year-round, under shirt sleeves in the autumn or under a warmer layer in the depths of winter.
It’s not just about the guys: Schoffel realises that country lovers aren’t just the males of the species so their range includes collections for ladies as well as men. Well-tailored shooting jackets, shirts, hats and accessories as well as the feminine version of the ever-popular gilet, the Lyndon.
Green’s not the only colour: We can wear colour in the country and Schoffel products come in a vast array from Denim to Aubergine for men and Kingfisher to Raspberry for ladies.
Accessorise all areas: Schoffel may be best known for their coats but their accessories are designed with the same attention to detail and quality fabrics.
Stylish touches: Although practicality and functionality is the priority, form is also important to Schoffel, that’s why ladies jackets are cut with a fitted, sportier look and subtle touches are added to up the smartness on the men’s range such as the Alcantara leather-look trim on every fleece.
Quick drying: Machine washable and fast drying – a feature of many Schoffel products that everyone loves!
Extensive range: Whether you want a lightweight walking jacket, an investment shooting coat that will last for years or a gilet that will take you from dog walk to Sunday lunch – the Schoffel range is versatile and extensive. Browse online or instore.
