Sure Schott

While there are many imitators of the iconic motorcycle jacket, few compare to the authenticity and sheer rebelliousness of Schott NYC. While they can take credit for developing the first motorcycle jacket back in 1928, it might be their regular appearances on the likes of Brando and Dean that launched this all-American manufacturer into another gear. In keeping with their well-maintained traditions, Schott C.O.O. Jason Schott (great-grandson of company founder Irving Schott) has teamed up with Barneys to launch a capsule collection of four leather jackets that have been washed and treated to make it look as if you've had it for decades.
