Schott NYC, the 102-year-old outerwear company, has teamed up with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum to create a special limited-edition Pea Coat and leather-wrapped flask to commemorate the 240th anniversary of the U.S. Navy.
The items, which cost $240 and $25 respectively, will be available as of October 13 at the Schott NYC stores in NoLita (236 Elizabeth Street) and Glendale, California (112 Caruso Avenue), as well as on the schottnyc.com website.
The “Designed for Sailor Jerry” pea coat will feature a wool blend shell with goatskin leather trim anchor buttons and a red poly satin lining decorated with flash artwork depicting a naval shop flanked by two pin-up style women. Such images played a significant role in the tattoos created by Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, for whom the run is named.
The flask features full grain cowhide leather and stainless steel and was designed as a companion piece to the coat. Sailors throughout history have partaken of spiced rum.
When Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum called to ask if we wanted to collaborate on these pieces, that celebrated our shared heritage and ethos, we said yes,” said Jason Schott, COO of Schott NYC, in a statement. “Norman Collins is an amazing figure, and the brand that bears his name celebrates the same lifestyle, the same spirit of a rebel that embodies Schott NYC and has made us the authentic choice for generations of leaders and rebels, those who choose their own path forward. These pea coats and flasks celebrate that spirit.”
