Schott flagship shop for London
Here in England there are maybe 30 dealers across the country. But they tend to stock only a very limited range of Schott jackets. Also they tend to only stock LC jackets. LC to me means "low cost" These are jackets made in China for the European market. They are OK but inferior to the real deal stuff you get in the States. One exception to this is the iconic 740 navy wool pea coat. There are only 3 dealers in London namely House of Leather (Wood Green), Silvermans (Mile End) and Stuart of London (Shepherds Bush) that are carrying the Made In US Schott stuff. Of course, it possible for me to get any style number over the internet. But I need to try on a leather jacket to know if it right for me. What I am asking is you Schott to consider opening up a store in London like the ones in Japan. In fact I have noticed that Selfridges are once stocking Alpha Industries. Just imagine a large co-branded shop with all the Schott leather A-2s, G-1s B-15, varsity jackets, cafe racers, perfectos and pea coats and the Alpha N3-Bs, N2-Bs, MA-1s, CWU-45s, M-65s etc. If such a shop existed I know where I would want to spend my weekends (and all my spare cash).
