Our selection of authentic Austrian Loden wool overcoats will add a touch of elegance to your wardrobe for many years to come.

The original Loden Coat was worn by men of the Alps, specifically the Austrian state of Tirol, where specialty weavers, "Loden Valkers" perfected a technique of felting loose woven wool fabric and brushing it with thistles to give it a water repellent surface. Later, the style was adopted by the Habsburg Court and became closely associated with nobility throughout Europe, including emperor Franz Josef. The beautiful, functional and resilient style has lived on.
