In honor of the 90th anniversary of the year Irving Schott designed the black leather motorcycle jacket, the 3rd and 4th generations of the Schott family have released a commemorative limited edition Perfecto® jacket.
Only 500 pieces total will be produced and sold worldwide. The vintage inspired jacket, complete with authentic 1950's design details, is handmade in the Schott NYC factory in Union, New Jersey.
In 1928, Irving Schott created the first black leather motorcycle jacket for the burgeoning
new vehicles gaining popularity. Named after his favorite shape of cigar, the Perfecto® jacket,
was built as a functional utilitarian garment and in 90 years has become a cultural icon in style and history.
