By also tapping Horween Leather Company to produce a custom tannage specifically for this project, the goal was to produce a hide that started off soft and supple, but would age and show wear quickly, resulting into the Arabica cowhide. With wear, this leather will quickly break in and exhibit the kind of aging that would usually take years to achieve.
Additionally, the jacket incorporates a raw Japanese selvedge chambray lining instead of the traditional quilted composition found in Schott’s 519 model. Furthermore, 3sixteen appointed Good Art HLYWD to design and manufacture a custom brass “snap-cap” to apply to the empty back snap on the jacket, which is traditionally used to attach an optional collar. Lastly, a custom leather patch commemorating the collaboration has been sewn into the lining above the wearer’s internal hidden pocket.
With each jacket hand cut and sewn in Schott’s family-owned manufacturing facility in New Jersey, only 100 pieces were produced and will be available at select retailers starting Wednesday, December 20 for $1,100 USD.
