When we welcomed Schott NYC back to the family earlier this month, we did so in true SOP style--by working closely with the Schott team to offer unique, limited-release styles that probably didn't make your radar, but most definitely should! Every single time we've visited Schott in NYC for the past 5 years, we've hoped and dreamed of finding the perfect A-2. As a brand steeped in history, Schott knows a thing or two about manufacturing bomber jackets. We could just never find the one etched into our brains...until now.
The Lightweight Cowhide Flight Jacket in rich oiled brown pull-up leather is the one. It's the perfect embodiment of heritage meets modern in one of the most incredible leathers we've ever seen. Perfectly slim fitting (when you follow our sizing advice), bi-swing back for full range of motion, zippered & snap front closure, and gold satin lined. The weight is perfect for milder climates (year round in our neck of the woods), and this leather is a personal favorite for Jason Schott himself. Experience it in real life to fully comprehend, but best believe it ages like the vintage A-2 you'll never find in any thrift store and is more comfortable off the rack than any repro model you'll find.
