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.

    History:

    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.

    AWESOME JACKET WITH A SLIM FIT

    Published: Tue, 7/28/2020 by Stephen

    I’m an avid indoor cyclist with regular body weight training. Initially got size small (38). Everything fit snug and very fit. But I couldn’t fit in any mid layer except a short-long t-shirt. Exchanged for a size M (40). Now, I can fit in a medium weight mix-layer if need to. A bit more flexible around tri-cep and shoulder. I’m 5’ 8” and 148 solid steel 😂

    EXCELLENT

    Published: Wed, 6/10/2020 by SL

    Great quality jacket. Super stiff leather smells amazing out of the box and looking forwards to breaking it in.

    I’m a 38” chest and bought true to size for a snug fit. Quick international delivery considering I’m buying from the UK, although it took 3 days to be processed at customs

    HAD TO HAVE AN ORIGINAL.

    Published: Mon, 6/1/2020 by Jonathan Grandt

    Obviously it’sa great jacket. I’ve been wanting a Schott forever. I had looked around at some other brands t decided I had to go with the original.

    I ordered a size 42 because my chest measures 41” and I like it slim. After trying on the 42 I realized it was just too roomy. Especially in the waist. I’ve also been losing weight and so I decided to try a size 40. I’m not giving anyone sizing advice, just telling you what worked for me. I decided that the 42 was too long in the arms and too wide in the shoulder and that I needed a 40 even though it’sa bit snug.

    Returns and exchanges went very well. The shipping is extremely fast and even the processing of returns is Pretty quick.

    Also, don’t hesitate to use the chat feature. It’s incredibly helpful.

    CAN’T GET OVER HOW NICE THESE JACKETS ARE.

    Published: Tue, 5/12/2020 by Jonathan Grandt

    While the jacket is Super nice, I would like to make note of the Stellar 5 star customer service from Schott. The chat function was very helpful at getting me the jacket measurements and The ship times are incredibly fast. I have had a hard time trying to pinpoint the size jacket I need/want. I feel like the 42 is a bit big while the 40 is a bit too snug. I’ve had to exchange the jackets out a couple times to figure out what will work best. Considering that I am about 15-20 lbs over weight and losing weight lately I decided I would probably prefer the size 40 because the 42 just felt too bulky. I have a slightly more athletic shape... broad shoulders and a narrower waist. If I lose some pounds I can make the 40 work. It’s either that or shoot for the 42 613s.

    Top notch quality jackets!

    FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE START TO FINISH

    Published: Fri, 5/8/2020 by YL

    The jacket is absolute quality - others have commented on this already.

    I just want to commend Schott for having amazing customer service from start to finish. I purchased this jacket from outside the US and the staff responded to my questions in a prompt, friendly and accurate way. I felt well looked after despite not ever stepping foot in a physical retail store.

    The sizing guide is also accurate, this is the most expensive piece of clothing I've purchased without actually trying it on and I'm happy that the online size checker was spot on.

    I'd recommend to anyone to get in touch with Schott and purchase directly from them.

    613 PERFECTO “ONE STAR”

    Published: Wed, 2/26/2020 by Yes

    Ordered the 613 “One Star” in black and it’s badass! It looks good while on the bike and off. Sometimes I wished it had the button snap on the buckle but that’s ok. I ordered it “snug” and can wear hoodie underneath. It’s a jacket that should fit and looks best when it does. Wearing it gives the look and confidence of a rockstar!

    GREAT!

    Published: Fri, 10/4/2019 by Bill Carling

    Absolutely great Jacket. I knew what I would be getting but was worried about the size. I used the "fit guide" available on the site because these jackets are snug. The guide nailed the sizing perfectly. I would advise anyone that doesn't look like the model to use the Fit Guide. I'm slightly heavy and tall and had I gone with my usual jacket size I would have had to jump to the next larger size. I'm completely happy with my Perfecto.

    THE ORIGINAL...

    Published: Sat, 8/17/2019 by John T.

    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 exceptional...as was to be expected. I’m extremely satisfied!!
