Simply put, this is one of the most perfect black motorcycle jackets that we've ever seen. It's an unbelievable combination of fit, quality, and price. Here's the story:
Schott's been producing motorcycle jackets for decades, and created the original "Perfecto" jacket - as seen on Marlon Brando, James Dean, the Ramones, and countless others. This classic zip-front piece has been in their line for years as a true riding jacket. Their traditional shape is very much a motorcycle jacket - the length is short, the pleated "bi-swing" allows you to hang over a motorcycle's gas tank, and the overall fit is generous.
This piece was designed by Schott to be a slim-fitting interpretation of their classic Perfecto. Like the original, it's Union made in the USA of tough 100% cowhide. It has the same heavyweight chrome zippers and fittings. You'll instantly feel the quality when you put it on. But the chest is dramatically slimmer and straighter. The sleeves are slimmer. The rear has no pleats for a sharp fit. The interior is lined in soft plaid cotton flannel. Like the original, it has three zip-front pockets, an asymmetrical front zipper, a collar that can be worn up or down, zippered cuffs, snap front flap pocket, and a removable belt.
If you've always wanted a classic "riders" jacket, then look no further. This is a perfect-fitting, tough-as-nails piece from the original company that created it. It's union made in the United States, and very fairly priced. We're confident that you'll love this piece as much as we do.
While this is certainly tough enough for riding, it's also easy to wear casually. And like the original, you can expect to wear this timeless jacket year after year. Few things are as beautiful as a well-worn Schott leather with a gorgeous patina.
