90th Anniversary Jacket Fur Collar
I’ve been looking at getting a fur collar for my perfecto, but it’s hard to settle for the one on the Schott website with it’s synthetic fur and big, prominent snap on the back.
The collar on the 90th anniversary steerhide perfecto caught my eye, being that it was real mouton and only snapped on to the front snap and under the collar. I figured I would offer to take it off of one of the owners of one of the jacket trying to sell it. Unfortunately, the lowest price I was quoted for the collar seperately was $400. Short of paying half the price of a jacket just for collar or just flat out buying the jacket, I ran out of options.
I guess I’m just curious why Schott chose to make the collar an exclusive rather than selling it seperately as well (I get it makes the 90th more attractive as a buy, but I don’t need two indiscriminately different perfectos). I can guarantee my money would already be gone for the collar produced for the 90th jacket.
I suppose I’m holding out hope that an excess of the collars was produced or that they’re available as custom orders, though I doubt it.
