Shearling Coat for Life

Are you tired of buying clothes that disintegrate after only a few seasons? How about expensive coats that look great but are only appropriate for a month or two out of the year because of changing weather? You can banish these problems when you invest in a beautiful shearling coat from D’Andre. Our shearling coats are not only some of the highest quality coats on the market, they also adapt to changing temperatures. That makes them appropriate outerwear from fall into deep winter and back into spring.
You can wear shearling coats virtually all year long because they are made of sheepskin.  Shearling is a natural material that allows for breathing of the skin beneath it and possesses insulating properties. When used as a coat, it functions in much the same way as it does for sheep, which means you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This makes it the ideal coat if you’re searching for something that is versatile and long-lasting. Imagine not needing to pack several coats when going on business trips or traveling through varying climates. Imagine not over-stuffing your bag. Imagine being able to come right off your plane and not being sweltering hot or freezing cold.
With all the styles that D’Andre offers, the perfect shearling coat for you is waiting in our catalog. With traditional coats as well as modern styles, we have something for every discerning taste. However, no matter what style you choose, you’ll know that your coat will be high-quality, beautiful, lightweight and perfect for any weather. If you have questions about D’Andre or our exquisite collection of shearling coats, give us a call at 1-800-564-4168. Our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

Shearling Coat and its Natural Beauty

The mass-produced coat has its place. Some people want the low price tag, and they don’t mind the synthetic materials. But what about those of us with more demanding tastes? If human innovations pale in comparison to Nature’s grandeur, why settle for something thrown together in a factory? A luxurious shearling coat offers the ultimate in Nature’s perfection—all in a comfortable, stylish package.
Shearling coats are the original climate control technology. Wool is designed to wick moisture away from the animal’s skin, keeping body temperature cool and regulated. Luxurious shearling outerwear provides you with the same incredible temperature moderation keeping you warm in the coldest temperatures.
Natural, functional climate control isn’t all that a shearling coat offers. The subtle beauty of wool is naturally amenable to the highest standards in fashion. Top designers work with shearling, bringing a range of tasteful accent styles to Nature’s elegance. Yet in all our shearling designs, form follows function. A shearling coat is the ultimate winter wear staple. Our shearling jackets are created at the nexus of practicality and refinement. You’d be surprised at how well shearling outerwear walks this line.
Human history is a history of innovation, and today’s world displays that lineage. With communications sent across the globe in a matter of milliseconds, you might say that humanity has achieved the ultimate in sophistication and efficiency. Yet with all that innovation, we’ll never top some things. The Grand Canyon will always surpass the greatest of our achievements in sheer beauty, and no app can convey the staggering beauty of the aurora borealis. For every incredible innovation we come up with, Nature shows us her timeless beauty—a cohesive system of incredible function and complexity.
With practicality, you want individuality. Our shearling jackets offer this, too. No two shearling designs are alike. Subtle, refined, yet unmistakably original, every coat we offer connects elegance to functionality to durability. At D’Andre New York, our extensive catalog of luxurious shearling outerwear has something for every taste. Shop today, and experience the timeless beauty of shearling.

What is the difference between Merino, Toscana, Tornado and Tigrada Shearling?

As fall is approaching and we begin to feel a chill in the air, many of our clients ask what type of sheepskin pelt should they choose for the cooler weather and for the freezing blizzards in the upcoming winter.
There are various types of sheepskin pelts with Merino, Toscana, Tornado and Tigrada shearling being among the most popular.
Let’s explore each kind and talk about the most practical use of these different types of pelts.
Merino shearling pelts of fine quality are very soft to the touch with a suede or leather exterior and short fur interior that has a plush and lustrous finish.  The best pelts come from Portugal and can be used for shearling coats and jackets for men and women.  Due to the lightness of the material, these items of sheepskin outerwear will be most comfortable during late fall, early winter, later winter and early spring months of the year.
Toscana shearling pelts have suede or leather exterior and long fur interior, allowing more space for insulation than Merino shearling pelts.  The finest quality of Toscana shearling come from Spain and Italy and are used mostly for shearling coats, jackets and vests for women, and men, depending on the color.  Shearling outerwear made of Toscana shearling can withstand the coldest of climates and are recommended to be worn during the roughest winter months.
Tornado shearling is another popular type of sheepskin pelts, generally used for shearling coats, jackets and vests for men and women to be worn during milder temperatures of the season.  It can have suede or leather exterior and short fur interior with nutty curly finish.  The best pelts come from Portugal tanneries.
Tigrada shearling usually has suede or leather exterior and very long curly fur interior.  Like Toscana, these pelts are the best for the coldest of climates and can be used for shearling coats, jackets and vests for both men and women.  Notable pelts come from France and Spain and make the perfect material for lightweight and fun winter outerwear.
At D’Andre New York you can find an extensive collection of shearling coats and jackets for men and women which can be made exclusively for you based on your needs and specifications.  Choose from a wide variety of styles, types of shearling and colors and request samples of different types of shearling to be sent to you, so you can feel the textures and have a clear vision of what type of shearling will work best for you.

Proper Care for Women’s Shearling Coats

Like any other piece of clothing made from animal pelts, women’s shearling coats can be extremely delicate, requiring specific maintenance measures to ensure their durability and length of use.

When the cold seasons have passed and the coat is not in use, it should ideally be sent to a professional furrier. The owner can request that the coat be cleaned and conditioned to bring back its former luster and softness. If enlisting a furrier’s services is not an option, the next best thing would be to store the shearling coat in a cool dry place, in a breathable garment bag, when it is not in use. Applying suede protection spray at least once or twice a year can also help maintain the integrity of women’s shearling coats.

D’Andre offers stylish shearling jackets and coats of the highest quality. Handcrafted by expertly trained artisans using materials sourced from Italy, Spain and Portugal, the New York-based products are as stylish as they are comfortable to wear.

Combining Comfort and Masculine Style with Shearling Jackets

Shearling coats and jackets for men don’t always have to be formal and, certainly, not old-fashioned. With the rise of a classic aesthetic that plays with texture, shearling can be a great way to go not only for winter outerwear, but for pieces that can be worn during fall and spring.

As compared to the glossy, rock star attitude that comes with leather, sheepskin has a suede finish, promising a rustic, laid-back feel. Some might even call it romantic and inviting, thanks to its plush texture. Even so, there are some jackets that strike the balance between gloss and plush comfort. Some are given an edge with leather accents or an all-out Napa finish while retaining the plush texture of the sheared wool lining.

Of course, the key to perfect shearling jackets is all in the fit and the quality of pelts used to make them. While the material alone exudes luxury, comfort and romantic warmth, a perfect fit brings out the jacket’s masculine style.

Merino Shearling: Coats for Cool Weather

While shearling coats may be seen as only wintertime wear, what some don’t see is the way the material can adapt and still be comfortable in warmer weather. In fact, when it comes to moisture retention, wool has this ability to either retain or wick it away, making any sheepskin garment comfortable during fall and spring.

Merino shearling is a perfect selection for its smooth, suede exterior and plush, velvety interior because with the short sheared wool on the inside, the coat wouldn’t look out of place when worn in times other than winter. The quality of the Merino’s finish also gives it a lightweight look and feel which still warm the body well in winter while doubling as a formal coat to wear when the occasion calls for it.

With that kind of wearable quality, shearling coats are definitely a must-have investment for anyone who likes the balance of comfort and opulent style.
