    Made in the USA from hand cut panels of heavyweight steerhide, this iconic biker-style motorcycle jacket borrows from vintage 1950s style with an asymmetrical front zipper, snap down lapels and classic three-pocket design. The leather is durable and stain-resistant, and will conform to your body like a second skin. Zippered sleeve cuffs and attached half belt with nickel plated square buckle complete the traditional Perfecto look. This jacket is fully lined with bi-swing back panels and underarm footballs for effortless comfort, and finished with shoulder epaulets including the classic one star that gave this jacket its name. A wardrobe staple for years to come, the Perfecto One Star makes a statement all its own.

    Leather Type, Fit and Construction:

    We consider the Model 613 as a close cousin to our popular Model 618 with just a few subtle differences. Perfecto Model 613 leather jackets for men are made with U. S. sourced, chrome-tanned, drum dyed, heavyweight steerhide leather. This hide has a medium to firm “hand” and a matte finish. It is chrome tanned and processed to provide many years of use without the need for treatments or conditioners (which can actually weaken all leathers). Right out of the box this jacket will have a stiffer feel and fit. We always tell our customers that to make this leather jacket their own requires a profound commitment. Wear it often, explore the open road and watch how it conforms to your body over time. This Perfecto model 613 leather motorcycle jacket was designed and built for the long haul, the short ride, whatever you decide to throw at it!

    Schott NYC uses US domestic steerhide to help your leather jacket or “second skin” resist the elements. Motorcycle jackets need to be as tough as the people wearing them. You will enjoy the benefits of both stain resistance and sturdy protection with a water resistant leather hide whether you are riding on your classic motorbike or venturing out in the chill of a winter storm. For wind protection and added warmth the 613 features an attached belt, zippered sleeve cuffs and a durable insulated nylon quilted lining sewn into the body of the jacket. Our bi-swing back panels and under arm footballs ensures that this tight fitting jacket moves with you eliminating that restrictive feel often found with other leather motorcycle jackets. Nickel plated brass hardware complete this timeless American made classic that is built to last a lifetime.

    As with all Perfecto leather jackets, Schott only uses the best, highest quality leather available. In the same tradition used in the 50's, highly skilled workers hand-cut each panel for the 613 from patterns that date back to the early "One Stars". In keeping with their original custom style, Schott designed this jacket to fit tighter than most for that classic bold and streamlined look. Offered in sizes 32 to 54, we suggest you carefully check our sizing diagrams and measurements to determine best fit. Many of our customers prefer to “size up” in this style due to its classic, close-fitting cut. Ordering based on your chest size will give you that snug, t-shirt only, bad boy look pioneered in the 1950’s.

    The Schott Perfecto Model #613 is still proudly made in the U.S.A. Our customers know that the quality and construction of our jackets are unparalleled. From the heavyweight thread we use to the strong American hands that do the crafting. We build our leather motorcycle jackets to the same indestructible standards as the old style leather medicine balls. One-hundred plus years of being the best is your assurance that Schott Brothers stands behind every jacket we make.


    The three pocket design of the Schott Perfecto One Star dates back to the late 1940's. In those days this leather motorcycle jacket was referred to as just “Perfecto” or “Beck model 999” (manufactured by Schott). The small coin flap pocket started out as a custom option offered in the early 50's. By 1955 this coin pocket became a standard feature of this biker-style jacket known as “the Perfecto One Star".

    Considered to be the best motorcycle jacket it caught the mainstream public's attention after Marlon Brando epitomized the coolest of cool, wearing his Perfecto in that iconic classic film “The Wild One”. Originally referred to as "the One Star", it was officially banned from schools across the US for an entire year in the mid 50’s. Some believe this action served to make the Schott Perfecto even more desirable to America’s young renegades with their “Wild One” tendencies. School Boards wanted to burn it and youthful rebels saved every penny to buy one. At the time, this jacket retailed for close to $50 which amounted to roughly 100 hours of work if you were a gas station attendant making fifty cents an hour!

    The customized asymmetrical leather motorcycle jacket worn by Brando became the must-have anti-establishment symbol for 1950’s youth. The orders skyrocketed for this leather jacket causing Irving Schott and his son Mel to increase their workforce and expand the Schott factory. By the mid 1960’s the Perfecto mens jackets had also caught on with the emerging rock n roll movement. Once again, due to increasing sales, Schott had grown out of their current factory on King Street in Perth Amboy, NJ. A few new factories later and still in New Jersey, Schott proudly continues this iconic American classic motorcycle jacket as the Model 613 for the wild side in all of us.

    The original, a piece of history. This is the model the Ramones rocked out in the late 1970's. If you want the punk rock look don't order one size up :)

    This particular jacket is the finest on the market. You may pay more for other custom jackets of similar design but none witll give you the long years of servicability that you will receive from this unit. The quality of the leather is far superior to any I have encountered. Plaiable and easliy adapts to your body and the functions you perform. If you can find one better, then buy it, but not until you compare in person and apples to apples.

    Bought this jacket after selling my 118 due to the body being a bit too bulky. Bought it true to size for a snugger fit and it was as expected, though the body is still a bit too wide, buckling the strap to the second hole creates that slight "poking out" of the bottom of the jacket which happens when the body is too wide and you cinch it.

    Additionally, I measured the sleeves on my 118 (fuller cut version of this jacket) and they sleeves in the bicep area on the 613 are actually WIDER than on the 118 (both size 40). Terrible choice as the jacket is short and slim with big bulky sleeves creating a poor profile.

    Fit issues aside, the leather is great quality, but takes a decent time to break in. I recommend not hanging it but rather rolling into a ball and stuffing in a drawer. It will help to bend the leather and make it less stiff.

    Also, I'd like to see Schott bring back the collar attachments for this version. No upper lapel collar snaps but still put in the inner snaps which allow attachment of the collar like previous models of the 613 had.

    Satisfied with the purchase as a whole, but seriously...these sleeves are an issue.

    After years of buying cheap imitations I finally decided to treat myself to a genuine Schott Perfecto leather jacket and I only wish I had done it sooner. Being a Ramones fan I opted for the 613 as famously worn by the boys and I have to say it's fantastic. When I took it out of the box I just knew it would be the best jacket I will ever own, it screams quality and blows every other make out of the water, the quality of the leather is just second to none. I live in the UK and ordered it on the Thursday night and it was delivered first thing Monday morning....outstanding customer service!!! many thanks to Jerri and everyone at Schott, you are a credit to your profession.

    This jacket saved my life. 50mph around a tight turn, I hit a patch of wet leaves. Went down hard, sliding and toppling through oncoming traffic. I hit a curb and flew through the air in to the grassy median beside the road. Not a scratch on my body, and the jacket, hold some minor scuffs/scarring, is totally fine. Half of me would have been left on the pavement had it not been for this jacket. It’s the real deal. I feel safer when I wear it, even to the grocery store. I feel like I could take a bullet in this thing (jk jk) And sexy, too. I’ll probably total another bike in this thing before it’s all said and done. A+.

    613 FOR LADIES!

    I finally received the 613, and it is so perfect and soft leather that is way exceeded my expectation! Really, it is the perfecto motorcycle jacket for me.

    Thank to Jerri from customer service as she was patient enough to advise my size even though she initially said that Schott leather jackets are made for men so that woman like me (5"6, 125LB, Women size 6) would rarely fit well on the wide-shoulder and sleeve-length. But, I insisted to get one, so she suggested me 613's size 34. And, it fits really great! Maybe, I may want to alternate for slimming down the sleeves though I can wear heated inner jacket under the jacket.

    It is indeed cool and rocking motorcycle jacket, especially chick riders wear :p

    I've owned a couple of leather jackets from varying brands, but none have held up or been as high a quality as this 613. Being 5'7" and 125lbs, I ordered the XS and it fit perfectly. A nice, slim fitting jacket that looks great when I step out of my 84 Cadillac Eureka hearse. Embroidered patches look great on this jacket too, I should add. It might be as stiff as a board when you get it (the leather is pretty tough), but after you break it in, you have one fine fitting jacket.

    This is a classic jacket of the highest quality. Very stiff when you first put it on, but with wear it becomes Perfecto. I love the look and the quality and the fact that it is made in USA, The quality of the leather is the highest. Such a classic.

    I first ordered a size 44 which I always wear. I had to return it for a size 46. The only problem is the collar appears to get a white tint where it folds. I've worn Langlitz for 32 years. I also own a Lewis Leathers from England and a Vanson Comet. This One Star Perfecto is my FAVORITE jacket. It is very comperable to the Langlitz Columbia but about $500 less money. I simply love it!

    I was not aware of the Schott Co. until I saw them featured on the CBS Sunday morning news show as a family owned business. I was shopping for a cool motorcycle jacket, but reluctant to pay those jaw dropping prices for designer label jackets listed on the high end retailers web sites. I was pleasantly surprised to view the dozens of jackets on the Schott web site. I promptly ordered the One Star and was just blown away with the quality of the jacket. But I picked the wrong size. .It took three jackets to get the perfect size for me. And returning the product was no problem. Not a single comment and absolutely no shipping charges. The day they received my package was the day they returned a new one for me. They run their business exactly like a family business. I know that because I too have a business. And my business is all about meeting my customers needs, regardless of the issue.

    Long time rider who has too many leathers. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this purchase. I sized up one for this jacket. You should as well to be practical unless you are an emaciated male model.. Great American quality. This is a keeper.

    Everything from the feel of the leather, the look, and the smell of the leather shows just how incredible this jacket is. I once had a size 42 that I loved, which is my normal size, but I parted ways with it because the sleeves didn't fit me right. The sleeves were just a little too short for me. I decided to size up and do not regret it, they fit perfectly. To give you a reference point, I'm 5'11" weigh 185 and have an athletic build with long arms and wide shoulders. I'm excited to break the jacket in so it'll conform to me over time. The fit on the 44 feels better than my previous jacket, and I'm happy to have a Schott back in my wardrobe once again.

    I was told that getting a leather motorcycle jacket would make my life better...and it did. This jacket has an authentic vintage feel and fit. This is my go to jacket for all occasions. The shopping process was incredibly easy. I would highly advice all potential buyers to be properly measured for a jacket. Initially I measured one size and when I had a tailor measure me I found that a size 48 would be a better fit.

    Purchased 613 to replace my old motorcycle jacket. I ride all year round and needed a jacket that lives up to the advertisement. I rode up to Canada and back to NJ. The jacket was comfortable and warm. Especially while riding at night. Definitely had to order one size up. Customer service was great and return shipping was speedy. Top quality jacket that will last for many years. Happy customer!!!

    I have been considering a Schott perfecto for some time but have been reluctant about the sizeable investment required to buy one. That all evaporated when I got the chance to try one on at a new local retailer. The second you put one on you can feel what all the fuss is about, there are very few pictures online that do the jacket justice, in person you will be amazed I guarentee. The 613 is built like a brick-s**t house!

    Sizing advice: I am 5'10 with a 38" chest and athletic build, the 38 size jacket fit very tight, good for just a t shirt but if you are using it for riding I would suggest sizing up to be able to fit a sweater underneath. The size 40 still looks totally fitted without a sweater though, so unless you are extremely skinny I would size up one. Also remember that the jacket will form fit to your body after a few months of being in the elements.

    This is by far the finest leather jacket that I've ever had--better than Eastman, Lost Worlds, or any other I have tried. The first thing I noticed about it was the beautiful finish and smell of the leather. The lining did not disappoint as far as comfort and warmth.
    The fit was a concern for me, so I contacted Jerri for advice, which resulted in a perfect fit right out of the box.
    I have no idea what people are saying about the sleeves being too wide. If anything, they could be a bit wider. My suggestion to those people is to go and find a gym.
    Thanks for making a fabulous product. It won't be the last Schott I own..

    The 613 arrived today via UPS two days after I ordered it. Jerri was unbelievably helpful and answered all of my questions via email within minutes. It seemed more like texting than emailing. So quick. The jacket fits like a glove. I ordered true to size and couldn't be happier with the way it fits me. I wear a 40 regular suit jacket, so I ordered a 40 in the 613. Perfecto. Everything about it, from the way it fits my torso, to the sleeve length and diameter, is perfect. I was nervous about the "bagginess" of the sleeves because of some of the other reviews (and even other photos of people in the 613), but I am happy to say that the sleeves are perfectly slim in my experience. I think other people have just ordered the wrong size for their body type. I am 5' 10 1/2" and weigh in at ~180lbs. I ordered 40 and it is fucking perfect. My new favorite article of clothing. I wish I could put into words how absolutely pleased I am with this jacket. Huzzah!

    I wore an imitation biker jacket for 20 years, real leather, just not a Schott! I don't ever want to take this jacket off and it's not even broken in yet!! I'm a union worker myself, so I say,,, union brothers,,, keep up the great work! I am a Schott costumer for life now!!! Everybody is right though,,, it runs tight. So if your a size 44,,,, definitely get a size 46 or you will be sending it back!

    I have other jackets from Vanson, Aero, etc and quite a few Schotts including at 618HH, and I must say that the 613 is just the real deal, nothing to really say about it other than you have to wear it ALOT, and it'll get better then more you do.

    Also, i'll say that Schott's service is always amazing. you can call them and they'll answer any question you have. their free shipping is super fast, bought jacket online Tuesday, was shipped out Wednesday, got it Thursday. cant beat that.

    I was having a hard time deciding between the 613 and the 519. In the end I decided to go with the 613 because I'm planning on purchasing a bike in the near future and wanted a riding jacket. I have no regrets at all, my normal jacket size is 38 but I decided to size down to a 36, and I gotta say that jacket fits like a glove. When I pulled it out of the box, I knew it was a jewel. The jacket had a nice weight to it, and has a beautiful sheen. It's a little stiff right now but I can't wait to break it in and make it my own. I have read other reviews of how baggy the sleeves were, and that was one of the reasons why I was hesitant to purchase a 613 but since I ordered a size down, I don't find the sleeves to be baggy at all. It fits perfectly, it's starting to conform to my arms already. I now know why they call it a Schott "Perfecto", it's perfect and beautiful. Jerri and Gail are great too!

    If you want a grandpa fit size up. If you want a comfortable slightly loose fit get your size. If your like me and you want a tight jacket that looks good and breaks in and molds to you over time SIZE DOWN! High quality jacket. Arms are not nearly as baggy the reviews make them out to be. At least not when you size down. Best jacket I've ever owned!

    I have the One Star Perfecto purchased new in 1971. It is a top quality thick leather jacket made to last. Wear a sweater under it, and you can ride in sub freezing weather.

    It is now a little tight and I may have to purchase a new one. I would not consider any other manufacturer or consider owing imported chinese trash.

    That was my response when I opened the box that contained my new and first ever Perfecto 613 One Star. I had to wait about a month for the production of this jacket in my size (40 but ordered a 42) and I will have to say it was well worth the wait. The quality of the leather is just amazing and I can also tell that it was put together very well. Even though I ordered a size bigger than I should have (38 is my true size but I was supposed to order a 40) I will have to say that it fits like a glove. I am very sure that this jacket will last me a very long time unlike the one made in "other" countries, which leads me to the very best part of this jacket, MADE IN THE USA!!!!!! Thank you so much Schott for producing a beautiful jacket of this quality!

    I was so pleased with my Schott Easy Rider Jacket, that I also bought the One Star Perfecto Leather Motorcycle Jacket. The quality is the best. Detail is second to none. It fits perfectly. I would never buy a leather jacket from anyone but Schott NYC. I can't praise Shott enough or express my satisfaction, there are no words to describe it. The price is high but you get what you pay for. What am I rebeling against? Anyone who buys a jacket, from any place other than Schott NYC!

    It is incredibly hard to articulate just how amazing this jacket is. The specs online do no justice to the actual product, but if you get a chance to try one on you'll immediately realize why the company has been in business so long and why they're the undisputed king of the field. Also, Gail was extremely helpful in talking to me about sizing, and the order was shipped so fast. Couldn't complain about a thing even if I wanted to.
