How can I tell which model this is?
Watch this Post
While recently cleaning out my parents home, I came across this jacket and wanted to know how I can tell if it's the 618 or the 118. I believe it is from the late 80's or early 90's and I don't see any tags inside the pocket. Please help! Thanks

If the white ticket is missing from the coin pocket flap then I am unable to tell you the type of leather by a photo. The only difference in the 118 & 618 are the finishes on the leather. The 118 is a Naked Cowhide which has no finish and has a dull matte finish, the Steerhide leather has a finish and will have a shine to the leather. Of course as with wear any leather looses it shine as it is broken-in and worn through the years, so the shine will not be as shiny as when new. Gail

Ah ha! I was looking in the wrong pocket, the tag says: 1345 045 118 46 I will assume that means it is a 118. Do the other numbers tell you what year the jacket is from? Thanks again

Also, can I tell if it is 46S or L?

Since the white ticket has no bar code on it, the jacket was produced prior to 1992. We started using the Perfecto label with the motorcycle rider in the mid-1980's, so this jacket was produced between the mid-1980's and prior to 1992. Gail

We do not make of our styles in a short and if the jacket is a long size it will have a "L" after the style number which would then be 118L. This is a 118 so it is a regular. Gail

Do you know what all of the measurements are for this jacket?

We have had several updates on the patterns since prior to 1992 and we no longer have the old patterns for the jacket. If you email me I can send you the pattern spec for the 618 which is still the same pattern and should be the same as this old 118. At one time the only difference in the 118 & 618 was the leather. The older jackets are a smaller cut. Gail email: gail@schottnyc.com
