Schott NYC is the Business of the Month for the month of March. Schott NYC is an apparel manufacturer, owned by The Schott family and has been operational for the past 102 years. Schott NYC is located in both the east and west coast however they have been located in Union at 735 Rahyway Ave. for the past 3 years.
Schott NYC was founded in 1913 in Manhattan’s Lower East Side and is now run by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Schott family. Schott NYC produces classis outerwear by hand, out of our very own Union, NJ. The Schott family purchased the building in town for expanding domestic manufacturing due to Union’s strong local labor pool and proximity to NYC.
Irving Schott, who was the first outerwear designer to use a zipper in a jacket, designed the iconic Perfecto® motorcycle jacket. The first of its kind in 1928, the Perfecto® was a favorite of all American rebels like Marlon Brando, James Dean, The Ramones and Bruce Springsteen. Schott NYC supplied the US military with Naval Peacoats, Parkas and Aviator bomber jackets during World War II.
Schott NYC has been active in the community and with various restaurants. I would like to introduce Schott NYC’s CEO Steve Colin.
