As a huge part of the Americana aesthetic, motorcycle style has a storied history that you'll see every brand borrow and revamp elements to trot down runways and fill lookbooks. Still, there's nothing like the real thing which is why we caught up with one of the absolute original purveyors, Schott NYC, to find out what goes on behind-the-scenes in creating a piece of history at their factory in New Jersey. Established in 1913, with fans as legendary as James Dean and lionized by Marlon Brando in the 1953 moto classic, The Wild One, Schott has pioneered the look for almost a century and exemplifies this awesome nation's rugged leather heritage. Watch the latest video from our "Cut & Show" series (above) to see how the Schott brothers Irving and Jack are continuing the legacy.
