There are several posts on the jacket worn by the Ramones on this blog. I believe under the post Old & New Perfectos there are several photos of the Ramones jacket. gail

Did someone say Ramones? I've been a fan since I was a kid and yes they wore Schott Perfectos. There's a guy called Ian Harper (www.rockometer.com) who used to photograph them in the 80's and he has confirmed that they wore Schott. 

 

In the 1970's they wore the One Star (613) and also the 618 (this jacket didn't have snaps on the collar until the 80's). If you check out the cover of the first album Johnny is wearing a One Star. In the 80's they (well Johnny, Dee Dee and Richie) also wore style 418 which was a less expensive Schott leather jacket. The jacket on the back cover of Animal Boy is Dee Dee's 418 which CJ Ramone later also wore. 

 

It's sad that Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee are gone now. Joey died in 2001, Dee Dee in 2002 and Johnny in 2004. They were the toughest guys in the business!!

 

To left is guitarist Johnny Ramone, next is the whole band with Dee Dee in the middle and to the right is a 1980's Schott 418. Note the zippers, they're exposed with no piping around them.

Here's Dee Dee Ramone circa 1976 in a 613, picture from the End Of The Century - History Of The Ramones movie.
