A couple questions...
needing help identifying this coat. I think it’s a 259s but not sure. I can’t identify the zippers. I know Schott usually uses leathercraft or talon. These are different.. there is no pocket tag to assist in identifying the model or year of production.
Lastly, how do I properly care for Lambskin? I’ve normally used otter leather care kit for cowhide, but am hesitant to use the kit with lamb since it has more of a nubuck or suede texture. I’d hate to ruin the coat.. I’d also like to know how to clean the shearling.
Last question.. what is the design purpose of the sleeve zippers?
info: I found this coat used for $60. I know the history of Schott and am thrilled to own a vintage coat. I’d like to keep it for a lifetime.
