I am thinking of writing an article on the history of the motorcycle jacket. I was wondering if Schott could help me out with some research. I own and have pictures of multitudes of jackets manufactured pre 1930 using hookless zippers (later Talon) . These early zips date these jackets to the 1920s and I have recorded at least one hundred jacket brands making motorcycle jackets and other leathers during this period. Does Schott have any photos of Schott jackets from the 1920s with Hookless zippers? Can you guys send me any invoices for zippers, pictures of old jackets from this period, sales reciepts or other material that might back up the historical message that you invented the motorcycle jacket. I really want to get my story straight for the article. I was also wondering if there are any sales slips or records regarding selling jackets for Brando in the wild one. I looked at the zippers and patterns on that jacket. It looks very similar to a Durable brand jacket from that time. Is there anything you can send me to verify that it is a Schott jacket? I would really appreciate it as I would love to get the historical references correct in writing my piece on the origins and history of the motorcycle jacket.
