Can you tell me when Schotts started making jackets for Harley?

I do not have the year we started to produce a jacket under their Harley Davidson label, but in 1928, Irving Schott designed and produced the first leather motorcycle jacket. Retailing for $5.50 at a Long Island Harley Davidson distributor, the "Perfecto" was durable, rugged, and immediately embraced. Being this was the first motorcycle jacket ever made tand sold at a Harley distributor, I guess you could say this was the beginning. Gail
