Schott

schottnyc.jpgOriginating in 1913, Schott NYC was founded by brothers Irving and Jack Schott. Born in Manhattan, the company is known as the first clothing brand to introduce zippers to jackets. Famous for many innovations, Schott is still based in New York City.

Irving Schott created the company’s Perfecto leather motorcycle jacket in 1928, which was a functional jacket for bikers. During WW2, Schott manufactured the now-classic naval pea coat for the US Navy. Schott’s motorcycle jacket attained notoriety after Marlon Brando wore it in the 1953 film The Wild One. The next year, James Dean’s film Rebel Without A Cause propelled it to legend status.

Through the ‘60s to the mid- ‘90s, it thrived in subcultures like the punk, skinhead, and rock movements.
