    That's probably the first pic I've seen of it closed, looks great. Can hardly wait for mine to get here. It's 95 degrees here but I NEED IT NOW.

    The first one is the same cut/jacket as the second one, but in another fabric (100% cotton I suppose).
    Picture is from some Japanese online store.
    I already have two black/dark grey jackets from Schneider, so I'm leaning towards the light grey one.
    I also like the contrasting knit collar, whereas the other one is black/black.
    Although the fabric of the alpaca one seems to be nicer..

    So most people here prefer the second one, right?

    The cotton one looks a little flat to me next the alpaca. Also, the light grey lining offsets the lack of contrast between the coat color and the knit collar I find. Stephan cotton stuff is nice but wool wins, always.

    I'm assuming they aren't the same price though ?

    Thanks for your opinion and yeah, the wool one is 155€ more, I think.

    Still undecided, probably will go for the wool one, since all my other Schneider jackets are cotton already.

    And you're right of course, the wool one has definitely more texture.
    Just look at this closeup from the women's version, really nice fabric:

    Btw I've now seen about 7 different versions of that jacket in fabric and color all over the web.
    So the whole collection is definitely more than just the lookbook.

    That's gorgeous.

    Got this from WrongWeather but I'm probably going to sell it. It's a really nice, thick, beautiful weave. I'd probably wear this less than once a year in SoCal.

    The non-alpaca jacket looks awesome on its own, but next to the alpaca one it looks boring. SS is so awesome.

    I'm just wondering how warm would the Alpaca jacket be?? I live in Canada, which is -20 to -30 degrees usually and I'm always scared to buy designer clothes, since it's usually not meant to be worn in those temperatures.

    And on top of that, what is the sizing on it like generally and is a 3 super small?

    S2S: 44CM
    Back Length: 68CM
    P2P: 49CM
    Sleeve Length (to wrist): 67CM

    I ordered mine in 4 but I'm thinking i might need a 3. I'm about 5'9, 140 lbs, pretty thin. I take a size 36 jacket in american sizing. What do you think I should get? 3 or 4?

    The Frank Leder is sick. I personally appreciate the overt Deutsche Trad approach. The poacher theme is great. I'll be getting one of the blazers if I can find one.

    +1, really nice looking stuff. Love the knits and coats. All look impressive. Not sure how wearable the multicolor herringbone pants would be, but they are badass.

    I hadn't even heard of him until recently. Anybody have any experience with his stuff? (thinking of making a buy)

    I'd wear the shit out of them, they're soo sick,,,,, sad to see the 3 is labeled as 30 though, can anybody verify if its a slim 30? I'd hate to wear a belt with those.

    got my old account hacked (long story, posted under 'kwoyeu') and haven't logged in for ages but just popping in to say that project no.8 got their only Schneider shipment in a couple days ago. Some items are available in size 3s e.g. the black-navy coat (which is no longer, because kopped by me!), the brown version of this sweater and another charcoal sweater. They also have a lot of scarves, some shirts blazers and so on. Not yet uploaded to the website, but SA says this is their only Schneider shipment
