Build Your Own Perfecto!
In honor of their 100th Anniversary, the Schott family announces a design-your-own women’s jacket program launching today. The brand best known for inventing the first motorcycle jacket, The Perfecto®, will make all the jackets by hand, on the turn of the century machines, at their factory in Union, NJ.
The online program will allow women to choose the leather, lining and hardware colors to create a one-of-a-kind, slim fit, cropped leather motorcycle jacket. Areas available to customize will be the signature elements of a Perfecto®: sleeves, body, collar and lapels, epaulets, pockets and belt. Classic Schott hardware such as snaps, belt buckles, heavy-duty zippers, and iconic stars will be available in nickel, black and brass. Linings options are colored satin, and cotton prints such as polka dots and animal prints.
The jackets will be available to customize online at www.schottnyc.com/buildyourown. Prices start at $995 with the option to add on more colors and materials for an additional fee. Delivery is estimated in approximately 4 weeks.
“The Perfecto® has always been a symbol of individuality. We have seen artists, punks and rebels with and without a cause customizing their leather jackets since pilots began painting their jackets back in WWII.”
Says Jason Schott, COO and fourth generation of the Schott family.
