Schott in the Dark
They were the first company to put zippers on jackets. They helped make icons out of James Dean, Bruce Springsteen, and the Ramones. When you think of the iconic American leather jacket, you're thinking of Schott NYC. Still run by third and fourth generations of the Schott family, they continue to make all the classics like Peacoats, Bombers, and Cafe Racers. They also make fantastic non-leather garments. They are not 100% American made any longer, so be sure to click on "Made in USA" for your personal piece of Rock and Roll history.
