Living in Orlando, Florida I get to go to Bike week, Bike fest, Biketoberfest plus many other venues within the state that vendors from all parts of the world come to sell their wares. You can buy leather jackets, vests, chaps, hats and the list goes on forever. Over the years I have purchased four leather jackets, three pairs of chaps, two vests and a two pairs of leather pants. All from different vendors at different pricing purchased at different times. The only thing that is common about the products are the fact that they are made in Pakistan or china. I have been told that some of the best leather in the world comes from Pakistan. But after I received my new #141 leather jacket from Schott, I could see, smell and feel the difference right away. There is no comparison between the two products, what a difference. The more I wear my jacket, the softer it becomes, yet maintaining the look and feel of a quality product. There is so much truth in the statement "you get what you pay for" and this applies when it comes to Schott Jackets. I am so impressed, that I am ordering the classic Perfecto as well. So if your jacket tag says "made in Pakistan" get one that says made by Schott in the U.S.A., you won't be disappointed.
