AMERICAN CLASSIC

  There are few American staples that are regarded as iconic.  Ford's Model T, Apple's iPhone, Levi's Blue Jean, and Schott NYC's Motorcycle Jacket are a few pieces that come to mind.  In 1928, Irving Schott created the first motorcycle jacket.  He branded this jacket the Perfecto after his favorite cigar.  This jacket was created to provide warmth, protection, and due to its asymmetric front closure, comfort, while riding a motorcycle.  It sold for the outrageous price of $5.50.  In 1953, the Perfecto jacket caused a ruckus when worn by Marlon Brando in The Wild One.  Young men were quickly drawn to the Perfecto causing school systems through the country to ban the jackets as they were fearful of the rebellious nature attached to it.  We are honored for the opportunity to work with Schott NYC.  In 2016, I was lucky enough to tour the Schott NYC factory and watch where these historic jackets are handcrafted.  Schott NYC is run by the third and fourth generations of the Schott family.  Come for a quick tour and remember to support family-run, American-made companies like this one.  They are the heart and soul of America.Keep it classic,Katy

FIRED UP

We each have a story.  The story has chapters.  There are plot twists, highs, lows, lessons, and decisions along the way.  When I started Shoppe 815, my head flooded with ideas of what this brand would be.  It's incredible to look back at my notes and see how drastically different Shoppe 815 has...

OFF ON THE RIGHT FOOT

  At the beginning of 2019, I followed Tim Ferris' advice from his book The 4 Hour Work Week. Some of the goals I wanted to achieve were; run a 1/2 marathon, travel more, and read one book a month. After writing my goals on January 1st, I determined three...

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

  I've never been a fast runner, but I've always enjoyed distance running.  Maybe it's the feeling of accomplishing a goal mileage, but I think it's mainly because I like clearing my head. When I was going through my brain injury rehab there were days I just wanted to clear...

FURRY FRIENDS CANDLE

Did you know every 11 seconds someone sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI)?TBI's are often called an invisible injury.  Unlike a broken bone there are no visible signs of the symptoms that one might be dealing with. In 2017 I became part of that statistic.  My husband asked me to...

ACCEPTANCE

We all know it's common to put your "highlight reel" on social media but shits about to get real. Two years ago I was in a bad motorcycle accident where I acquired a traumatic brain injury (see the previous blog for more info).  After a year of cognitive, occupational, educational, and physical...

TBI RECOVERY

Sometimes life throws you a curveball. In February 2017 life did exactly that. I went out on a motorcycle ride and was in an accident. I suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spent nearly two years trying to rebuild myself and my life.  Sometimes we take things for granted...
