One Star Perfecto® Leather Motorcycle Jacket
Model is 6'1", weighs 175 lbs, with a 37" chest and is wearing size 38.
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.

Absolutely One of a Kind!
Hi its almost Perfecto....I do need some tailoring. I spoke to the store and they mentioned that if i need the sleeves shortened ..I could do that for $75.00 ...I believe I can do this at the Elizabeth St. store???
Please let me know it that is correct. If you have a contact person that would even be better so I can expedite the appointment or drop off .
Response from Schott NYC: You can contact us at email@example.com for details on shortening sleeves.
PERFECTO ONE STAR 613
Received the One Star 613 yesterday. Fit was ideal. I was concerned of sizing because I have never worn a Schott product before. I thought the recommended size 40 would be too large. After chatting with online help I decided to go with the recommended 'size up'. Couldn't be happier. Fit my shoulders exactly. No binding that I noticed although a bit loose around the waist (I am thin). Love the look I get wearing it and it will go well with the motorcycle. Seriously considering adding another jacket soon. Many thanks!!
I bought this jacket for my husband for Christmas and he loved it, a bit pricey but he's worth it. Will definitely continue to check out this site for special occasion purchases.
BEST OF THE BEST
This is the real deal of motorcycle jackets.

AWESOME JACKET WITH A SLIM FIT
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 😂
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
