Q: What are your best selling products? Describe how it is made.
A: Schaefer not only takes great pride in producing top quality hand-tailored clothing, but also sourcing American made raw materials. Schaefer’s American made suppliers employ over 20,000 people across the country. Most of the products are produced from proprietary fabrics including Fenceline Canvas (11 oz. canvas), Brushcloth (15 oz. canvas), RangeWax (10 oz. waxed cotton), RangeTek (waterproof breathable nylon), Legacy Melton Wool (24 oz. melton wool) and American Denim (14.5 oz. denim). Schaefer top sellers include RanchHand Dunagrees (jeans), Wool Outerwear/Vests, Denim and Canvas outerwear.
Q: Why manufacture in America?
A: For the past 30 years we have produced premium American made products. The thought of importing has never ever been considered. We not only have an investment in our employees, but have developed key personal relationships with our suppliers, customers and retail stores over the years which we are not willing to give up. As a result, our product line stands alone as one of the last American made lines in the country which continues to grow in sales despite the tough economic and governmental times.
Q: Favorite customer review?
A: “I have this jacket in both blanket and fleece linings. Besides cowboy boots, hat and jeans, this is basic cowboy equipment. A true cowboy OR westerner will have this jacket in their “bunkhouse”. I am 6’4″ and wear a 37″ sleeve. I purchased these in XL and they fit perfectly. Quality denim fabric, stitching and hardware are obvious in this jacket. Schaefer Ranchwear, in my opinion, is the premier western clothing manufacturer in the United States.
