I have been a big fan of Schott for as long as I can remember.I beleive that my first A2 was a Schott and I know the second one I bought in 1974 was. I bought it at Jacks Army & Navy in Westchester and outgrew it after 10 years. It did not wear out. When I decided I wanted a 689/Tracker I did my research and decided to take the train into NYC then the subway downtown to your store on Elizabeth Street to try one on in a 44.
The guy at the counter ignored me for 1/2 an hour while he chatted with someone about everything except the store. A young lady did appear in the back but didn't know what a 689H was or a Tracker. When I pointed them out on the right side of the store she could not tell me why there were only XXL, M & S.She didn't know what a 44 was either. I left. Who would invest in a jacket from a place that wasn't interested. How would you suggest I try on a 44? Is Schott interested in Selling a Tracker ?
