Vintage Perfectos

Hi Gail. 

Any idea when the 50's and 60's perfectos stopped having the fake leather sleeve gussets and inside waistband? I've seen some from the mid 60's both ways but not from the earlier black and red ribbon label ones. Would it diminish the collectability value of the earlier jacket if replaced with real leather? 

Thanks

I honestly do not have a date when the sleeve vents and waistband were changed to real leather. A educated guess would be by the early 70's real leather replaced the synthetic leather. As with any collectible item, once you change something on it the value is lessened, as it is no longer original.
