Schott Bros. was started in 1913 in New York City's Lower East Side by two Russian immigrant brothers. They were the first to put zippers on jackets and the creators of the Perfecto style made famous by James Dean and Marlon Brando. The factory has long since moved to New Jersey, but it's still a family-run company of craftsmen and seamstresses making motorcycle jackets by hand and they still work with the same machines they've had since the teens.
