When the Schneeglöckchen, 'snowdrop flowers' arrive we know it won't be long before we shed our heavy Loden coats in place for a light Spring jacket, preferably a linen jacket. Linen is one of the oldest clothing fabrics used by man and has been a staple of traditional Alpine fashion.
The Nora linen jacket featured here is a traditional Austrian style. It is produced for Robert W. Stolz by Steinbock of Austria, a well-known international name in refined Alpine fashion.
The 100% linen fabric used in the Nora was woven in the Italian textile town of Prato, where producing the worlds finest fabrics has been a passion for centuries. Our particular linen fabric comes from the distinguished Nuovo Ri Vera mill.
Owing to a unique finishing process, our fine linen is not prone to wrinkling, but is both very soft and durable. Most importantly, its light weight is a pure pleasure to wear, keeping you cool on warm Summer days and just warm enough on cool Spring evenings.
Our Nora linen jacket features exquisite details, carefully attended to by the Steinbock's Romanian sewers. This is not a mass produced jacket, in fact all the styles in the Robert W. Stolz collection are produced in small batches and are not available anywhere else in the United States.
The sizing of the Jane runs true, order your standard size, or European/Austrian size if you know it.
