The Left Coast is racking up its American heritage brands. With Shinola setting up shop in Silverlake, guys have a place to shop for US-made bikes and more, but with the opening of Schott NYC in Glendale, guys (and girls!) with a proclivity for a different kind of bike have a new place to stock up on leather wear that’s got a whole lot of history.

The Schott NYC location at the Americana at Brand is only the second freestanding store for the line and it’s first foray out here on the West Coast (naturally, the first store is located in NYC). Icons such as Marlon Brando and James Dean wore the label’s Perfecto jacket, a classic moto style that’s been produced for decades and served as inspiration for pieces at Saint Laurent and more. The store, which is located in True Religion’s former space, offers up those Perfectos alongside plenty of other styles for men and women — Lady Gaga is also a fan, naturally — all of which are made in Union, New Jersey. The label was commissioned by the US Army during WWII to craft uniforms and bomber jackets for the troops, and many of the style still have a little bit of military detailing. And don’t worry if you’re not feeling the leather. The brand also offers up t-shirts, sweaters, shirting, shoes and more. And trust us, if the line’s good enough for the likes of the Ramones, Joan Jett and the Boss himself, there’s nowhere else you need to look if you’re shopping for true original.
