For reference I am 6'3 and 175 lbs, and I don't find the jacket overly snug anywhere. I am a size 40/50 across the board, so this is my normal size in Schneider, and I'd say it fits as normal; with a knit underneath it feels just about perfect, not tight but not oversized.

The space is there to accommodate shoulders/arms at least a bit bigger than mine, so I am even a 42/52 could fit into this size for a "slim fit" jacket (though that isn't what Schneider intended), i.e. maybe just a tee or button-up underneath but it would work.

With the buttons all done up, the interior chest measurement right across the bottom of the armholes is a bit more than 22 inches (for a standard 40 outerwear fit). With the front open, it accommodates up to 24 inches width.

The shoulders measure almost exactly 19 inches whether you measure them inside or outside; the arms aren't padded, so the only difference in interior/exterior measurements is the thickness of the unlined wool fabric.

About the warmth, if you aren't going to rely on it to get you through the coldest days of a Canadian winter, it will probably do whatever else you need from it. I know people who wear thin-lined wool overcoats all winter, and half of them don't cover their heads or their ears. With this on, those people could laugh all through February. But personally I have to wear something down-filled and cover my head, ears and hands, or else I freeze.

Toronto doesn't usually get really chilly (even by my standards) until sometime in January, so a "normal" person would probably be able to wear this all fall and into January, maybe the warmer days in February, and then again once it starts to warm back up a bit. If you like to layer or you have some reliable ultralight down shirt-jackets or anything equivalent, this might be all you need. (Well, maybe earmuffs.)

I have never removed the lining or the hood, but are both detachable via buttons, which makes it even more versatile.

Brand new in garment bag, still inside the box, tags still attached.
The NMWA garment bag will be included, and I will use a smaller box to ship unless the buyer requests the original NMWA branded box (which will increase the cost of shipping).

- shoulder width: 18.75 inches
- sleeve length: 27.2 inches
- chest: about 22.5 inches
- fits a US 40 with room to layer, a 42 could probably wear it comfortably over a tee (but not if your arms are huge)

- If you live outside of Canada and the United States, contact me to discuss shipping.

About the Jacket
"An exclusive to NMWA, this is a custom reissue of the legendary F/W 2011 coat from the "Frozen Waves" collection made up in fabrics of our selection. With its removable hood and liner, it drapes on the body in a beautiful way and is the outerwear of dreams. "

About Stephan Schneider
Stephan Schneider's eponymous label is universally known for both creative, thoughtful design and incredible fabrics developed in-house. It's that combination of elements that rewards this percipient designer's patrons and keeps them coming back. Born in Germany, Stephan graduated top of his class from the Royal Academy for Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1994, winning a prize for his final collection that allowed him to show it in Paris. Since then, the collections have been shown during Paris Fashion Week, while design and production remain squarely in Belgium.

Why it out selling? It's so nice.
When I decided to order this I wanted it primarily for the hood, but I think the Merinos are best worn more the way GDL does it, open front with the knit lining showing and hood back to match, rather than filling the spot of a "hooded winter jacket" for Toronto winters -- though it would be perfect for the coldest months in lots of the US and probably Vancouver/BC. Since I already own a bunch of green outerwear and I couldn't see myself getting a worthy amount of use out of this, I thought I'd make it available to someone else who appreciates Schneider without putting any wear on it.
Thanks, cheers. More info & some photos:


It's the stuff of SW&D folklore. You've probably heard of it. If so, you've likely tried to buy one used only to find that someone got there before you, mere seconds after a listing was posted. You may have even tried one on. A select few of you may be so lucky as to own one. (The reality is that no one owns it; it owns them.) It's the Stephan Schneider FW 2011, Frozen Waves "Merino" Coat, and we're here to fix that last part. Greg has been crafty enough to set up an exclusive remake of this coat with Stephan Schneider, in 3 makeups, and offering a pre-order on it with a 10% discount for SF members. Please contain yourself, I'll give you a minute to cope. Now, everything you need to know: Stephan Schneider "Merino" coat Single breasted with removable knit scarf line and removable hood. Color choices, fabric makeup, and prices: Please note that the actual weave of the knit for the liner will be the same as that in the lookbook photos above - the samples below are just for color. [COLOR=A74345] [/COLOR] Deep green body ([COLOR=222222]86% wool, 14% nylon; 600 gram) with 100% wool light brown liner. [/COLOR]$825, or $742.50 for pre-orders. This one is a beautiful, very soft, very deep jade color and will look awesome with the contrasting liner. That should be good for now, but feel free to ask any questions in this thread. They will all be first come, first serve and there are limited quantities of each, although we will have a very limited selection of each style this Fall in regular inventory. Pre-orders will close in one week on Tuesday, April 1st.
