Schott's heritage and iconic styles are a true-blue, piece of Americana. Produced by hand, the Schott leather jacket has become infused in American culture and has served as battle flags for the American spirit. A century ago, back in the day of the birth of the automobile and jazz, it was a time when people created quality-made products that lasted for generations -- a time-honored craftsmanship that still holds true today for Schott NYC. Two brothers, Jack and Irving Schott, began their quest for the American Dream in a little shop in New York's Lower East Side. It was a simple jacket company that became an icon of American culture. For the last hundred years Schott has been there, through world wars, the rise of cinema, and the birth of Rock 'n' Roll. From the creation of the Perfecto motorcycle jacket made famous by Marlon Brando, James Dean, Springsteen and the Ramones, to the Bomber jacket that protected our flyboys in WWII and beyond, America has marched on wearing Schott. Each day since 1913, when Jack and Irving created their first masterpiece, their family, through four generations, has continued the long-standing tradition of quality handcrafted, American-made jackets, and Schott continues to make jackets that define American culture today.
