Rare awesome 1928 "D pocket" perfecto from legendary SCHOTT BROS, replica of the original version of the first motorcycle jacket made by Irving Schott in 1928.
I bought it directly on SCHOTT NYC site (see invoice) and since it was only available online for a limited time on their website, this jacket is a complete deadstock item.
Named "D" pocket after the shape of the pocket on the front, this beautiful jacket is made in the USA of genuine black horsehide.
Horsehide has many unique properties, it is immensely strong and durable even in the extreme conditions and, unlike other hides, is naturally waterproof, these water repellent properties making it the ideal material for a motorcycle jacket. It has a glossier shine than finished leathers of other hides and will develop a rich patina over time.
Little worn and slightly broken-in, it will give you decades of satisfaction.
Front zip "D" pocket
one inside pocket
all nickel RIRI zippers.
Plain back ( no bi-swing back )
100 % grey cotton lining.
