Schott NYC‘s Perfecto motorcycle jacket is a unique fashion statement piece, as it has stood the test of time, and remains a timeless classic since its debut 90 years ago.
The jacket has been immortalized by iconic figures such as legendary actors Marlon Brando and James Dean, in addition to music’s world renowned artists Guns N’ Roses and Jay-Z, just to name a few.
In celebration of the Perfecto’s 90th anniversary, Schott NYC has made 500 hand numbered cowhide jackets to be sold worldwide. Retaining its signature aesthetic, draped in all-black with metallic silver hardware and distinctive asymmetrical zip, the silhouette is also defined by a removable fur collar, and removable logoed snap cap on the back of the jacket.
The limited edition jacket will also be packaged in commemorative Perfecto cigar boxes as they were originally, with a certificate of authenticity displaying the individual jacket number. In case you were wondering, Irving Schott, of the Schott NYC family, designed the original Perfecto jacket in 1928, and the name derives from favorite shape of cigar.
Priced at $1,250 USD, you can purchase the jacket at Schott NYC’s online store, at Schott NYC stores in NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago, as well as select retailers.
