Damenmantel Damenjacke

Jackets & coats.


Jackets and coats are more than just garments to keep you warm. They are worn on a wide variety of occasions and can make a statement, be elegant, rustic, highly fashionable or functional. But the essential requirement for the sewing threads used is that they have to be high performing. Durable, easy to care for, washable and dry cleaning resistant – the seams and the seam material have to achieve a lot. AMANN sewing threads meet all these requirements and display high performance in terms of their sewability, appearance and durability.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

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

Depending on the 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 the finest 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
