Classic Leather Jackets - Made in the USA
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
October 13, 2003

Have you had trouble finding an American-made leather jacket to wear when you are atop your America-made Harley-Davidson or maybe just out for a night on the town? Make one visit to and your search could be over.

When I checked out the website for myself at the suggestion of a Buy American Mention of the Week subscriber and looked at the "About Schott" page to find that the first words were "Made in the USA," it gave me the idea that I was looking in the right place.

Schott offers everything from classic leather jackets and pants to winter coats. Not all items offered on the site are made in the USA, but even if you are in the market for a winter coat as winter is drawing closer, your chances of finding one that's American made is better at than at a Burlington Coat Factory, for example.

All products on their website are clearly marked as either "Imported" or "Made in USA" so there is no question as to where the product you may be ordering comes from, but the majority of the items on are made just outside New York City at Schott's 100 year old factory.

The company compares their dedication to continue designing and producing in this country to connecting with the American spirit. With so many leather jackets sporting "Made in China" tags these days at prices that are through the roof compared to the cost of the labor that must have gone into them, I couldn't agree more.
