This will be Schuyler 4’s third German brand — the showroom also represents Alberto pants and Haupt shirts. Codice, an Italian company, is Schuyler 4’s knitwear brand.

Carl Gross, founded in 1925, has distribution in more than 23 countries. Schuyler 4 will be its exclusive U.S. distributor. Retail prices for sportcoats will be in the $495 to $695 range. The fall 2014 collection will feature three fits and Schuyler 4 will offer a year-round in-stock program.

“We started business in 1977 with European brands and have always looked to Europe,” said Makoujy. “This brand represents 89 years of competence, experience and passion and we are very pleased to be the exclusive distributor for the U.S.”
