We Love Your Look

To outfit and inspire those passionate about the outdoors and who value durability and quality craftsmanship. That’s the mission of our Clothing department at Shepherd & Schaller.

Mountain Khakis Sagebrush Dress

Living the outdoor lifestyle might mean you’re on the first chairlift, you log 100 miles on the bike each weekend, hike and paddle Superior’s North Shore often, love to explore the woods for work and play in all weather. It can also mean you prefer indoors, surrounded by rustic decor, visit the ski area just for a seat by the chalet fireplace or venture outside only for walks in the dog park. No judgement here. Dressing for comfort and performance wherever you spend your day is a style all it’s own. It’s a look. And we love it.

Kuhl Brand. We dare you to shop it without saying “cool!”

We hold our brands to a high standard, just as you expect. To be exceptional stewards of our store values and community, demonstrating integrity, quality and pride. Delivering premium, durable, bold timeless fashion.

Each season we put every brand we stock under a microscope. Is their manufacturing chain transparent? Are they good stewards of the environment? Do they participate in initiatives that support quality of life? Do they use organic and recycled materials? Do our customers love what they buy?

New brands made the cut this season and we think you’ll like what you see when you visit us here in Downtown Wausau. If you’re even just a little tuned-in to the outdoor lifestyle, mountain culture and heritage clothing brands, you’ve likely heard of them:
