Eli Brauner

Dear all,

In the book Jewish Family Names and Their Origins: An Etymological Dictionary,
by Heinrich Walter Guggenheimer FE,Eva H., the meaning of the family name
Schrenzel is: "young man with slit court suit". What actually does it mean? Is it
some kind of profession?
Thanks for replies,
Eli Brauner
