Austrian Loden Coats are derived centuries ago from necessity to survive the brutally cold and snowy Alpine climate. The local mountain sheep, 'bergschaf' in german, were sheared and their oily fleece was loosely woven before undergoing an extensive wet-finishing process. That process, called fulling, or 'walken' in German, is similar to felting and results in a thick, impermeable fabric that when used in a men's Loden Coat or a Loden Cape, would keep a Tirolean shepherd warm and dry through the harshest winter. For a thorough explanation of the Loden process, click here to read all about. Back then the Austrian Coats were cut large so extra layers could be worn underneath as needed and that has stayed true until today.

However, the modern style of men's wool overcoats evolved much later when they were adopted by the Habsburg Court in Vienna. The aristocracy didn't like the very rough loden favored by their subjects, the Alpine herdsmen, but they did want to incorporate their style. This occurred in the era of Romanticism, (early - mid 1800's) and the Duke Erzherzog Johann set the trend. To accommodate their tastes, finer fibers, like from Alpaca, were imported to create the famous 'Himalaya Loden' and a new style of Austrian Loden Coats was developed.

The original mens Loden coat was worn by men of the Alps, but the forces of history have made the style a pillar of classic European dress and can be seen in every major European city as well as in the United States by the culturally affluent and quality conscious.
