FUNFACT: I make a killer chicken Francaise.

Cowhide or Horsehide? Model number and date?

This size 42-44 fit killer Schott cafe racer has been lovingly... professionally... restored with a fresh satin lining (no lining zipper) cut and sewn to perfection and a massive LENZIP metal zipper.  The back is detailed with "bi-swing" pleats from yoke to kidney panel and it carries buckle side adjusters with grometted tabs.

It's rock-solid, deep brown, carries a great patina, and shows just the right distress.

Sure looks and feels like horsehide with that distinctive horsehide distress and a larger bolder grain... plus it's stiff like horsehide.

Maybe most telling... it WEIGHS-IN AT 5lbs 2 oz!

ASKING FOR HELP WITH:
-Model # and production year? (Apparently discontinued)
-Did Schott make this model in brown horsehide... and possibly with a factory distress?
-If so... is this one of them?

Thanks...
Alley Ascot

This is a style we made for approximately 20 years with slight variations in styling. The jackets were produced in either a Naked Cowhide or a Steerhide leather, never in a Horsehide leather. If the jacket is stiff it means the jacket needs some conditioning, as the leather seems to be drying out. None of these jacket styles were made in a actual distressed leather any distress on the jacket is from wear and age. The jackets also all had zip-out liners, the double snap collar would have been on jackets after 1981. The jacket style is more then likely the style 657 in steerhide or the 157 in Naked Cowhide, from the 80's.
