How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    Not japanese market, just not made for very long or in high numbers and a little bit rare.

    The model started as the 620 and was made from 78 to 84 with a nylon lining.
    It was then renamed 621 and made in 85 with a poplin lining for a single year.
    It was made again in 87 for a single year with a poly lining.
    Last year of production was 94 when it was made with a fur collar, which leads me to believe this is a 94 version.

    So really this jacket was only produced during 9 years, in 4 production runs, which is pretty small for a company like Schott.

    That's pretty much it - if a mark goes unused long enough, anyone else can take itg and establish it. It's common in a lot of vintage-type practices, even moreso in Japan where I believe the ruels are less strict (e.g. 'Mosrite of California' has absolutely zip to do with Semi Moseley's original Mosrite guitar company, and the former got started in the nineties while Semi was still alive).

    Having ownership of what was a legendary brand was a definite head start, plus not only were they iconic in the 'ton up' scene around the Ace Cafe which was seeing a revival from 1994, the cafe itself reopening in 1997, so a good timeframe for the re-established brand, but there was also the retro-punk interest, Lewis having been what all the big Brit punk bands wore as soon as they could afford them, so there was interest there too. What I fidn incredible is how they rebuilt all the classic line from nothing - the company hadn't kept any of the original patterns, n or, so far as I'm aware, had they even kept an archive of original jackets. Had to rebuy loads of stuff first.


    Does sound unusual for a 618 sizing; I've always found them, unlike most jackets, to be labelled as to the actual pit to pit of the jacket. I'd normally have needed a 48 then, but the boxiness of their cut means I was able to get away with a 46. Interesting yours is a 'teacore' effect, I've not seen that on a standard Schott before, though I did have a cheaper Schottalike years ago which did. I wonder did they choose to do it that way, or was it just the batch of leather that was availabled at the time? Any ideas what year it is? Should be identifiable by the leather. If memory serves, like mine, because you have the embossed Schott stufds on it thast puts it some time after the early 80s.

    Well, just when i thought i was done for a while, a seller accepted what i thought was a low offer on one of my dream jackets:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Measurements are basically what i would have asked for had i gone custom:

    Pit to pit = 23”
    Shoulder to shoulder = 19”
    Shoulder to wrist = 26”
    Bottom of collar to hem = 26”
    Bottom hem width = 20”

    It even has the red lining, and doesn't have the chequered collar, which is what i would have wanted. It is from 2015 and is made from Horsehide.
    Can't wait!

    This is a great jacket Ton---You will love it. For some reason I thought you already had it.

    The subtle red lining of the chest pocket is pure class.

    Jelaous! I missed my chance at one made in 2012 that Second Sunrise in Stockholm were selling.

    I still have the green one on my wish list after I tried it at LL back in the London meet up... is has probably sold though.

    My Iron Heart N1 finally came to the post office, hoping this one will fit. I sized down this time and going by the measurement chart it looks to be perfect.

    I hate winter, but I do like the jackets it allows.

    I very much want to buy this but can’t seem to get the folks at Superdenim/RMC London to answer a simple question and I’ve tried to ask it three times. Is it a BS site?
