One Star Perfecto® Leather Motorcycle Jacket

STYLE: 613

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.

    I have always wanted a Schott Perfecto. I wanted the original one star so I went with the 613 and I wasn’t disappointed when the package arrived. True to recommendation, I ordered the size 46 and it’s as close to a perfect fit as can be expected for a jacket that wasn’t custom made to my personal measurements. The quality is was to be expected. I’m extremely satisfied!!

    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.

    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+.

    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!!!
