"We've realized to a certain extent that our past is our future," says Jason Schott, who started his career at his family's company in the shipping department and now serves as Chief Operating Officer. "I think it's important to pay homage to the foundation that my great-grandfather started. It's what makes us special." That means slowly bringing models from the Schott archives back to market, sharing the family's story in new ways, and providing goods for eager clients in Europe and Japan, where Schott has expanded into footwear.
