I ordered this jacket and then decided to look up the manufacturer: SchottNYC. The 585 has the best reviews of all time, so I was pleased to be getting it from Territory Ahead - one of my favorite companies - but I did notice that their 585 is different from the one I ordered. Specifically, the snap cuff-tabs on the 585 in the TA catalogue are facing fowards; on the Schott website they are facing backwards. More normally, I think. So I called Schott and they said that the jacket does indeed have cuff-tabs that face to the rear, not to the front as the TA photo shows. A small detail, but one to be mnindful of. Neither Schott nor TA had an explanation other than that maybe the jacket pictured was a one-off sample. In any event - still a great jacket!
I now own five Schott leather jackets. If you are looking for an iconic piece of Americana it doesn't get better than this. Worn by the likes of the Ramones, James Dean, Marlon Brando and Bruce Springsteen.... The moment you slip this incredible garment on you will feel like superman or a rockstar...amazing. Still made right here in the USA and worth every penny.
