The new Collection, inspired by the Countryside
15th April 2019 by Schöffel Country
Our British weather is notoriously fickle: when it’s good, it’s glorious, and when it’s bad, it is terrible. As the swallows start to swoop and dive and the days lengthen, it’s time to put away your winter thermals and refresh your summer wardrobe. Materials made from natural fibres not only look good, but keep you cool and comfortable during those hot summer days.
Schöffel’s 2019 Spring/Summer collection looks to linen, cotton and light merino to make up the perfect wardrobe for both ladies and gentlemen, city and country, casual and smart. Whether you are walking the dogs in the early morning chill, heading to the south coast for days on the beach, gathering the family for a picnic or going to a summer evening party, this collection is the answer for every occasion.
An every-day essential
Linen jackets epitomise “smart yet casual” and the Linen Blazer is the best example of this. Suitable for hot days in an office, country events or a smart evening party, this blazer has a beautifully tailored fit with a button closure to give a great silhouette, while still having lots of room for the arms and shoulders. Two patch pockets lend it a casual look, while the full lining keeps it smart enough for any occasion. An essential for every gentleman’s summer clothing collection.
Not too warm, not too cold
Merino is the ideal yarn for those days when it is just too cold to be without a jumper – its natural properties give you the warmth you need, as well as being completely breathable. The Merino ¼ Zip Jumper is lightweight and epitomises the smart/casual jumper for spring and summer. The ribbed hem and neck and contrast elbow patches give it a robustness and make this a long-lasting garment that completes the city-to-country wardrobe.

On the range
Whether you are having a day at the clay range or enjoying a full-on simulated day, a shooting vest is a must. Our All Season Shooting Vest not only looks great, with the adjustable back allowing you to make it look fitted to you, but is incredibly practical too. The reinforced pockets allow you to fit plenty of cartridges in, while the faux suede shoulder patches give a little comfort on a longer day’s shooting. It’s the ideal shooting vest for summer, but also lends itself to being worn under a coat for those cooler spring months.
A contemporary take on a classic
For those long, hot summer days, the Sandbanks linen shirt gives the classic linen shirt an updated look with a slimmer cut making it a more modern style. Designed to be worn untucked, the softness of the 100% linen of the shirt is comfortable and will be a great partner to a pair of chino shorts. The button-down collar is practical, and the softness of the material gives this a luxurious feel.

Sandbanks Linen Shirt
With its scooped neckline and relaxed fit, the Athena dress can be worn with heels for a smarter look or summer sandals for a casual approach. A must-have for any summer wardrobe, it’s that elusive combination of easy-to-wear and elegant. Made from 100% linen, this is the item of clothing you’ll want to pack for every summer break.
An all-day-long shirt
During the long, hot summer days, finding that one shirt that will look good all day long can be tricky. Look no further than the Marina Jersey Shirt, made from soft cotton jersey. Its relaxed yet feminine cut is paired with a three-quarter sleeve and pearl buttons, giving it a classic feel. The super soft material makes this a light, comfortable wear for any activity, and it pairs beautifully with a pair of shorts or jeans.
