I am hoping the lower dollar will help Schott sales.  Especially those made in the US.  Keeping Schott making jackets in the US.

Good for you. Has the Schott company given any indication they were moving their manufacturing overseas? What specifically made you post this? Are you just trying to generate interest in a subject that has no substance, or did you read something somewhere that lends your post weight. Please enlighten us.

Moving over eeas is on their miand, it has to be.  They are already starting to move some models to over seas production.  Don't like my assertions ?  Too bad.

DavisMC on 11/26/07 at 06:50 PM

It doesn't matter whether I like your 'assertions' or not, we're discussing the matter of you having any proof - and your opinion doesn't count as fact. the question remains, do you have any proof that the Schott Company is considering moving all of their manufacturing overseas? Apparently you don't - so this thread, and your 'assertions', are worthless.

go to hell

? curious as to why you would say that - I am only trying to find out why you would post something like you did. it doesn't make sense to me (your original post). If you can't back up your posts with facts, then you should expect someone to call you on it without resorting to profanity - this is a public forum after all.

Anyway, since you haven't been able to address my questions (in a civil or factual manner), I suspect you don't have any valid information about the Schott manufacturing plans, and I would  ask you to be careful posting inflammatory statements in the future.

Though we do import some of our styles, none would be from a slave labor country. Our company is celebrating our 94th. Anniversary which was founded on Made in the USA. We only wish in this day and age all our jackets could still be produced in the USA, but we are happy to say 60% still are. Compared to other companies we are still solid with production in the US and proud of it. Therefore we have the highest standards for any item we would import, with factory standards to our own. As it stands now, more than 60% of our production is in the USA.  We try to manufacture everything that we can in the USA, but one of the biggest factors preventing us from achieving that is that many of our US raw material suppliers are just not around anymore. We are thankful to be able to continue to provide “Made in USA” products to our customers, we are thankful that there are people who still care about these things, and we are thankful that we can keep our workforce going here in the USA.

1 ) Moving oversea is in the mind of any normal CEO who wants to make profits or just stay in the market. So we don't need any special proof to say that a company considers the possibility to move oversea. Do you live on mars ? Look around you. Where is made your jean ?


2) The price of the $ has almost no effect on Schott's prices in Europe as prices hasn't fallen despite the euros is $1.5 now while it was $0.8  6 years ago.

I'm not looking for mind reading, the originator of this post seems to be an expert in that. I'm looking for some kind of evidence behind the comments he made. If you can't constructively add to the discussion, why bother?

As for my jeans, what difference does that make? What does another manufacturer have to do with this? If you must know, they're Diamond Gusset brand (great for motorcycle riding, by the way).

Jean is THE US tradionional garment.

LEVI'S is x times more famous and more powerful than Schott.

Where are made LEVI'S garment ?


Do you see the link now ?



DavisMC on 11/28/07 at 11:39 PM

Where is it written that jeans are the traditional garment? I would expect that there are more business suits and casual pants out there than jeans. If that's the basis of your theory, it doesn't hold  up. and besides, just because  someone makes jeans out of the country, why does that mean Schott has to follow step? You aren't making any sense - its a different part of the industry altogether. You don't seem to have any proof either, worse, you seem to be trying to shift the subject.

bilbok on 11/28/07 at 11:42 PM

Check the meaning of 'traditional' in a dictionary. What do you read ?

Suits comes from UK, not from US.

What would you think if Savile Row suits were made in India ?


Most of US company selling basic goods don't produce in the USA. Same for European companies. 

So why and HOW could Schott resist to this economical reality ? Because you buy a Perfecto every 2 years (after you fall and slide from you Vespa) ?

You have never opened an economical newspaper in your whole life ?



DavisMC on 11/28/07 at 11:45 PM

I wasn't aware that every suit on the planet was made in the UK. That's amazing. I suppose you have proof of that also? Proof you don't seem willing to share?

Once again, different subject - please try to stay within the parameters of the original posting.

bilbok on 11/28/07 at 11:53 PM

You are dumb, sorry for you.


1) All suits are not made in UK but almost all in Italy.


2) You mix where it is made and where the tradition comes from.


3) Jeans come from US = have been INVENTED in the US, developped in the US and exported by US people =  So it is a US traditional garment.


4) If even the very RICH and/or symbolic company go oversea (LEVI'S, NIKE, FORD...) what does it mean ?


5) Seems like you didn't understand that already 40% of Schott products are made oversea. Why in your opinion are they made no longer in the US ? What was the % of oversea products 10 years ago? 20 years ago ?










DavisMC on 11/29/07 at 12:02 AM

Ah, the last resort of the unimaginative: personal insults.

Well, I was looking for proof of the Schotts moving overseas, but instead, all I got was evidence you have nothing to add except subject changes and name calling.

Oh, and don't think I didn't notice you going back to edit your posts to try and make your argument sound better - it didn't help though, even though almost anything would have made them sound better.

I guess this thread can be ended now. Move along, nothing to see here...

bilbok on 11/29/07 at 12:09 AM

Almost ALL companies making clothes, even the biggest ones and the most symbolic ones (LEVI'S) produce oversea.

You don't notice this reality.

What does it mean but that you are dumb ?


As you seem not only dumb but stubborn TOO : 40% of Schott is made oversea, isn't it enough to ask yourself if they will produce more and more oversea ?
