    Thinking about picking up a Amadeus microfiber rain coat off STP. How's the quality and fit of these?

    Thanks in advance.

    fairly good but not amazing. Worth the STP price IMO

    In my experience Amadeus is a little boxier than Schneiders (at least the more current pieces). Amadeus is made by or a sub-entity of Schneiders for what it's worth.

    Both Amadeus and Schneiders can be a tad long. A size 50 (european) can be more like a 42 US

    thanks Horton, would you put it at say a Hugo Boss level? Also with the fit you said a tad long, is that in length only or also in the chest, waist?

    Unfamiliar with Boss outerwear. If you're familiar with Schneiders, it's like that but a smidgin roomier. I think both Schneider's and Amadeus run long in the sleeves and in the length of coat.

    If you're looking for trim European-style, I wouldn't look to Amadeus. They're nice but not trim fitting.

    I've hear good things abou Allegri (but I don't own any; have only seen some). Sometimes you can find those at decent prices

    I thought Schneider's was a noted Austrian maker. It's midlevel, however, compared to the more noted Italian and British makers discussed here?

    I think you should check them out and compare and contrast for yourself.

    Schneiders is an excellent coat. When you're in Boston you should swing by Louis Boston and then comment on the coats.
