Based on the Perfecto label with the Bull and the "Schott NYC" at the bottom the jackwt is from the early-mid 1980's. The Perfecto labe with the Bull and "Schott Bros" would be from the 70's.

Thx a lot for ur answer

i have another question maybe u can help me.

As u can see im looking for a perfecto 613 or 618(old model), i prefer the 613 cause of the stars, and i found one at my size but a star is gone :(

Is it possible to buy replacement stars from Schott website or official retailer considering im from France? 

Edit: added pictures of the one im talking about, its from early/mid 80's too right?

Thx one more time i highly appreciate ur help.

Cordialement, Nicolas

In regards to the second jacket you posted, I cannot see the Perfecto w/Bull label very well. As I mentioned in my previous email if the label has "Schott NYC" it would be from the early to mid-1980's. The Perfecto label w/Bull but has "Schott Bros" would be from the 1970's. This second jacket appears to be in much better condition then the first jacket you posted which needed repairs replacing the pocket zipper and sleeve gusset. 

If you contact Jerri in our customer service she can help you replace the stars that are missing. I have listed her direct email address for you below.

I'll ask u soon about another perfecto I found on site 

I just ordered the schott book, 100 year of an American original, it will help me for sure

I am sure you will enjoy our 100th Anniversary book, a lot of great information about the company, jackets and people. Let me know what you think of the book after you recieve and review it.

Hey, i received the book and it's really interesting, i started to read it and i'm enjoying it.

I bought 2 new perfecto too, havent received them for now, ordered two days ago, and not at home so i cant check my book.

First is a one star from early/mid 80, i paid 435 euros, i dont think it's a good deal but it is in great condition, 2 first pictures.

Second one, idk if its a one star or a 618 with stars, on size ticket i can see "40 long", what does "long" mean, special model?

If i'm right its a model from early 70, schott bros, talon zipper


Havent received them for now, ordered two days ago

The first 2 photos appears to be a very new style 613. I am basing this on just looking at the sleeve zippers which appear to be a bell shape pull and the very new looking front buckle. This is why you probably paid so much for the jacket. Once you get the jacket we can narrow down the year it was produced by the pocket ticket, Leather Care leather and any markings on the back of the buckle. I do not think this jacket is from the 80's.

The second jacket is a vintage 618L, the "L" represents a long size. A long size would be 2" longer in back length and 1"longer in sleeve length then a jacket in a regular. Based on the "V" ring chain pull zippers this jacket was produced in the late 70's - very early 80's.

Thx for ur answer Gail.

There are more pictures and the zipper is a Talon, i don't see any leather care ticket.

I hope i don't paid too much for this jacket :/

Looking at these additional photos, the jacket is a vintage jacket and not a newer jacket that I originally thought based on the firts 2 photos you posted, The buckle still looks very new, possibly the previous owner did some refurbishing on the jacket in replacing it. It also appears this jacket may have new sleeve zippers and has been professionally cleaned as the pockets are very clean for the age of the jacket. Can you send me a photo of the sleeve zipper pull and the White label sewn alongside the Perfecto label at the neck. Is there a name or number on the back of the front buckle.

Finally at home, i took pictures of the one star, i dont see anything on the buckle.

The stars look strange, not the same than the 618 i just received too, do u think the previous owner replaced them?

Last picture is a star from the 618 it's a pin's with two clips

The stars with the prongs on each point are the stars we use on our jackets. The stars with the pins used for attaching appear to be stars that were added or replaced with similar stars by the previous owner. If you look closely you can see the original outline markings of the original star and the holes made by the prongs.

Ur right i checked closely and i saw the marks, thx u :)
