I know U.S. Wings' American-made Indy jackets are made by Schott, but this is the first Schott-branded Indy jacket I've seen. Anyone know if these have been out for a while or is this just a one-off?

Looks pretty nice.

Looks identical to the wings jackets; Legend version in Bison. Nothing on their site. I wonder if that is what the tag looks like on the Wings jacket.

Maybe they sell them out of the Schott store. It is identical to the USWings US made by Schott. Schott after all does have the patterns.

Way too long for a Raiders jacket though at 28.5" back length. That's a 3/4 length car coat.

Exactly. It's only 5.5" longer than the movie jacket it replicates

Wow! It makes me wonder how they are measuring it. My large reg. is only 24 from the base of the collar stand to hem.

Since you asked, here's what the tag looks like in the US made jackets.

Here is the direct eBay Link (http://www.ebay.com/itm/280742835246?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%3A80%2Fs ch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp5197.m570.l 1313%26_nkw%3D280742835246%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1)

They state the back length is measured


THE LENGHT IS 28,5 INCH LONG FROM THE BACK COLLAR SEAM TO BOTTOM

Which I interpret as from the collar stand to back panel seam. Even if it included the collar stand, the collar stand isn't that wide!

Weston,

What is your liner made out of? It doesn't look like the usual nylon.
Also, I like how they attached the label directly to the liner.
My Legend came with the label sewn to a heavy piece of leather. It was quite uncomfortable and needed to be removed.

You know Kwad, I'm not exactly sure what it is. It's advertised as nylon, but it feels like some kind of heavy satin. It's very nice, definitely a different grade of material than what the imports are lined with.

In the picture the liner kinda looked like cotton to me.

The liner in my import feels like heavy satin as well. Doesn't feel like nylon at all.
It even feels better than the satin in my Wested did.
