Few names conjure thoughts of leather jackets quite like Schott. Fewer still have the kind of history associated with the brand — from crafting the first motorcycle jacket for Harley-Davidson in 1928 to introducing a whole generation to the edgy allure of leather, the Schott brothers have been supplying outerwear to celebrities, bikers and stylish guys alike for almost a century. For Fall/Winter 2013, the unmistakably American, family-owned brand has teamed up with men’s e-tailer MR PORTER for a trio of exclusive pebbled-leather styles. Included among them are a Perfecto leather trucker, MA-1 bomber jacket, and A-2 bomber that reinvent iconic work and military icons for modern everyday wear. All three designs are made in the USA from black cowhide and feature red satin linings, along with contemporary fits and the kind of sturdy, functional details one would expect from Schott. Schott’s Fall/Winter 2013 MR PORTER Exclusives are available for purchase now online.
