Jackets & blazers.


Tailoring traditions still strongly influence the production of jackets and blazers today, even in industrial production. For jackets, the inside is almost as important as the outside. Whether it is the inner lining for sleeves and body, or seam piping in a contrasting colour, the sewing thread has to match. Padding and felling contribute to the lapel on the front curving elegantly. But inserting shoulder pads or sewing the perfect seam on flap pockets or welt pockets requires different qualities, while emphasising the edges with AMF seams requires decorative sewing threads. AMANN is the specialist for all these tasks.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for jackets and blazers we recommend sabac 120

Depending on the outer 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 finer fabrics sabac 150
  • for decorative AMF edge seams sabac or Serafil up to ticket no. 80 (depends on machine)
