Help dating my 184SM

Hi

 

I have just acquired a 184SM and was hoping to find out how old it is…

 

Label in pocket has faded but the collar label is intact and clearly marked:

(NOT computer style numbers)

 

Lot 1008

BNDL 012

184SM

42

 

Colour is Brown

Main ‘Schott NYC’ label is present on both the liner and the inside of the outer shell

 

Main Zipper slider tag marked ‘LENZIP’

Liner Zipper slider tag marked ‘IDEAL’

 

Specialist cleaner label recommends ‘Leathercraft Process’

 

Hope this is enough for you to work with!

 

May thanks in advance.

Based on the pocket ticket not having a barcode number we know the jacket was produced prior to 1993. Since the zippers are Lenzip & Ideal I would place the jacket as being made in the late 80's to 1992.

Many thanks for dating it.

I gues it's not quite as old as the one worn by Kurt Russell in 'The Thing', but it is still The Real Deal!

Schott has actually made the classic A/2 flight jacket since 1940 which was style 674 in steerhide with a quilt lining. We have offered many variations through the years with different lining, piles collars and different types of leather. I actually never saw the movie "The Thing" so I have no idea of the jacket that was worn or even if it was a Schott.

You gotta be kidding me? Never seen The Thing (1982)...

Absolutely essential watching if you like Horror or Sci-F or both.

A word of advice - don't watch it alone... It still has the power to freak people out.

Best regards

Hal,

I do not watch horror or Sci-Fi movies, just not my taste. There's enough real scary things in the world without adding more. I'm the typical girl, love stories, comedies, musicals and old movies, but I'm sure if you like horror it was good movie, I'll take your word for it.

Me?

I hate Horror! I recommend it as it is just a good story. I suppose it's outta professional interest as I am a writer by trade...

I can't quite do the love story thing, but a good old movie or a good comedy? That's my idea of a good way of wasting a couple of hours...

And while we're on the topic of movies...

Around the world, cinema and Hollywood has been the key driver for popularizing Americana. Schott is a part of that story too. Here in the UK it's seen as a legendary brand with some benchmark products. You and the Schott team keep up the great work... Meanwhile I'll consider my next acquisition!

A little tid-bit about movies and Schott. Not sure exactly what Rocky movie it was, but it was the one where I believe he was in Russia in the cold snow & freezing weather, training for a fight. He wore our Sheepskin #257S in Black. The thing is we did not offer the jacket in black, so the wardrobe for the movies had changed the outside shell to black. After the movie was released we received numerous inquiries on the black sheepskin #257S, which we actually did not have. Because of the inquiries and demand we purchased the leather in black and offered both brown & black in the style.
