Herrenjacke, Herrenmantel

Jackets & coats.


The Sunday coat is out of fashion. Today, men throw their coats or jackets into their cars but still expect to look well-dressed when they arrive. AMANN has the right thread for this too, and the right ideas for sewing. Nowadays coats come with a partial lining or a warm lining that can be zipped off. Sportswear jackets feature flaps or inserts that can be pulled off, and a multitude of different pocket shapes and fasteners. 


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for coats and jackets we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging. 

Depending on the coat or jacket fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:


  • for closing seams in coarser fabrics sabac 80, for finer, more delicate fabrics sabac 150
  • for decorative seams sabac and Serafil in a wide range of tickets 
  • for topstitch seams in jackets and coats filled with downs Serafil 120/2
