DOUBLE FACE CASHMERE PONCHO WRAP
Hand-finished seams complete the artisan aesthetic of a neutral-tone double-face cashmere and wool poncho that offers endless styling versatility, all equally cozy and chic. Drape it loosely around the shoulders to take full advantage of its generous squared cut or bundle it up around the neck to shorten the hemline and restrain the shape. For a cape-like poncho effect, utilize its arm openings and patch pockets or pull it across one shoulder and over the head for a fully enveloped hooded wrap. Any way you work it you’ll love its decadent warmth and luxurious look. Textile from Italy. Hand Made.
LONG SLEEVE DUO CREW
A crewneck pullover takes its cue from ‘70s-inspired menswear in an Italian micro-check wool blend, while waxed knit sleeves offer of-the-moment rubber-like textural contrast. Angular seams fork from the neckline and mirror down the front, a signature detail underscoring the inherent structural approach of SCHAI. Textile from Italy. Made in New York.
SENTINEL SHEARLING COAT
A sumptuous draped front showcases the richly dyed and silken fur interior of a thick and weighty Italian shearling coat that’s pieced together with an expert hand, leaving a grid-work of exposed seams. A tough, yet strikingly elegant layer of protection, the knee-length style pulls shut with novelty hook-and-eye closures into a tall funnel collar. Best perk: even the pockets are lined with soft, warm shearling.
EDIFICE MOTO JACKET
Stained in a rich earthen hue and worked to a rugged grainy texture, the Edifice Moto jacket continues SCHAI’s tradition of distinctive leather looks. Matte black Swiss-made zippers anchor the style in sensible utility while adding a polished element. Snap the collar closed to get the full structural effect or wear it open for a gentler easy-to-layer interpretation. Lined in silken Bemberg striped lining.
