In the coin snap flap pocket check for a white ticket with numbers. Send me a photo of this tag and I can help you better. Gail

Ok here's a picture of that tag

The jacket style is the Naked cowhide leather style 118 in the color Mocha. The ticket has a which means it was produced after 1992, the 5th. digit of the bar code represents the year it was made which in this case would be in 2000 or 2010. We have not offer the color Mocha in these years only black, which means it was a special production jacket. Our Japanese distribuor has had this jacket made in this color after we discontinued this color in the naked cowhide leather. To try and narrow down the year of this jacket, please advise if there is a name on the back of the buckle, the name on the sleeve zippers and if possible a phito f the front zipper pull, also on the front zipper if the back of the slider has any markings.

It has talon zippers and the buckle has a name it's just not readable

Gail on 11/14/14 at 02:01 PM

Can you send me photos of the front & sleeve zipper pulls, also the back of the front buckle with the name? Are the zipper tapes black and is the lining in the jacket black? I'm thinking this jackwt is from 2010 but maybe seeing the photos will help confirm. Also there is a Care label in the jacket is it a Leathercraft process label or a Arrow Leather care label? Is the pocketing a natural flannel or a black twill? Gail

I also am having a problem identifying what number jacket I have, and what year it was made. I know it is older, and the tag does not look like the one in this picture of Snotty's that they uploaded, so I am assuming it is MUCH older than 1992... I was told by someone they believe it is actually from the 60's. Am I correct . I have uploaded the white ticket inside the coin flap pocket. I love the way that the sides are made to be flexible like , and the leather is such good quality and so comfortable. It comes with an inner zip out lining for warmth on colder days which is also a plus.

The jacket was our Steerhide style #619 which we offered in our line in 1984 and 1985.

Thank you Gail. I did not notice that you had replied, and I therefore posted again. I would delete the second post but I can not figure out how to delete, only edit. Thank you again. One thing I would likw to ask a question about though is the sides- the form fitting and stretchy sides. I do not see them on any jacket I have ever seen images of by Schott Perfecto. Is this a custom designed item? Or was this a standard feature of all 619's in 1984 and 1985

Are the stretch areas leather or some other fabric? It looks like that waist area had inserts on both sides if I'm looking at the rear photo correctly. Maybe to accommodate a large waist area.

Gail on 12/01/18 at 07:29 AM

The sides are leather panels, not to accommodate a larger waist, jut the pattern design of the jacket.


Robswife on 01/13/19 at 03:33 PM

Gail. Thank you so much for answering these questions. I have never, EVER seen a picture of a Schott jacket when I have searched that had these stretchy leather sides, which yes, the leather stretching DOES help accomodate a larger waste- it stretches and expands with you as you move, and also add uniqueness to the jacket. I do want to know though--- is this a rare jacket  ? I seem to find 618's on the net a lot but not the 619.. Question 2, are the expanding sides rare, and are they standard after a certain size, OR do they have to be requested as a special order?... #3 is This also has a heavy warm zip out fur inner lining. The label is sewn into the lining not the jacket itself. Is THAT standard , custom, etc., and finally, my last question,-- How much did this cost in 1984 -85 ? Just how unique IS this jacket. I love it and get compliments all the time. It is a size 54 

Gail on 01/14/19 at 06:22 AM

In the 80's many of our styles featured these elasticized side gussets, though unique not rare for jackets made at that time. The classic 618 is the most popular motorcycle jacket ever produced, the 619 was a spin off from that style, in the 2 years it as offered in our line, estimated guess would be around 5000 jackets being made at that time. The jacket retailed in 1985 at $200, a size 54 would be 20% higher in cost at approximately $240. Older jackets only had main labels on the liners, we have since now added main labels be on the liners and body linings. The 619 is a unique jacket, not sure how rare, but it is a vintage jacket and after 30 years most likely not too many of these jackets are still around.

Hi Gail, How about my Perfecto? What is the model of this perfecto?

There is no need to post me in two places on the forum with the same inquiry about a jacket. I will apply to your individual post under your heading "Is my Perfecto Original?"

Thank You, Gail
