Our classic, with a cult status.
Anyone who has ever spent a winter`s night huddled in hide awaiting a passing herd of wild boar, their elegant trousers partially illuminated in the moonlight, hamster fur snuggly cosseting their skin, also aprreciates those trousers in hunting-horn tones. Breeches of Archduke John loden. Exclusivity, tradition, lifestyle. Craftmanship, luxury design and functionality, all in one.
Stitch by stitch a masterpiece. Inspired by a love for craftmanship, we imbue all pieces in our collection with the qulities of traditional tailoring. Some are inspired, down to the smallest stitch, by noble archetypes. Others, for their part, a looser interpretation of contemporary zeitgeist. Though always "old school" when it comes to painstaking attention to detail. Modern wearability meets the uncompromising expectation of quality. The common thread which has run through "Kleidermanufaktur Habsburg" since the every beginning.

What could ennoble a brand more than its own family. Alfons Schneider always had a true passion for the culture of the "House of Habsburg." For his wife Michaela, that also extended to hunting. They gradually assembled more and more artefacts frome the times of Franz Josef. Here a frockcoat, here a dress from the travel wardrobe of Empress Sisi, and there a photograph of an archduke in a hunting jacket. The faric of which a dream was made, ulitmately launched by the family in 1992 under te "Habsburg" brand. As a "christening gift", so to speak, daughters Katharina, Veronika and Anna gave the label the esprit of the modern lifestyle.

Noblesse oblige.
