Custom Made Shearlings.

We are proud to produce all of our garments in our own New York City factory. We control the fit, workmanship, and styling.

The Rafel made to measure shearling process:
We help you choose the style, fit, details, and color. Your measurements are taken and a unique hard paper pattern is made. In some cases we make a cloth muslin to test the fit. After we cut and sew your garment in our West 29th Street factory, the finished garment is ready for fitting.

All made to measure garments are backed by our money back satisfaction guarantee. Please call 212-564-8874 for an appointment.

Q. What is a Rafel shearling?

A. A fine, light weight garment made from the world's best wool-on lamb pelts. The suede outside acts as a wind breaker while the wool inside is one of nature's best insulators.

Q. What makes a Rafel shearling so special?

A. Fit, styling, and quality of materials set our garments apart. We are known as the shearling experts.

In the same location for over 30 years, our thousands of repeat customers are a testament of our commitment to quality and service.
