Figure you’ll need a little time to plan for this one. Saturday only, 12/04, from 8am-12pm, famed coat maker Schott NYC is hosting its annual factory sale featuring deep discounts on leather motorcycle jackets, leather aviator bomber jackets, pea coats, down ski parkas, sweater jackets, wool duffel coats, …
“The sale officially runs from 8am-noon but we open the doors a little early for those who have been lining up — some before 6am,” a company rep tells us. “Usually people will run through the factory filling up rolling racks full of jackets typically heading straight for the room packed with sweaters, wool, down and leather jackets all under $50!” Samples and irregulars are also on sale at a discount, and everything is new and unworn. Also, some of Schott’s current collection will be 10-50% off.

Travel directions without a car:
The best way to come from NYC is probably to take the 112 bus from Port Authority to North Avenue at Madison Avenue in Elizabeth,” a rep tells us. “The cost is $6.50. The buses depart at 7:35, 8:35, 9:35, 10:35. The bus ride is about 25 mins, and there is a 1/2 mile walk from there to the factory. (2 blocks north – passing the park – 1 block west). The buses return around 9:40, 10:40, 11:40 and 12:40.”
