We offer a variety of classic motorcycle jackets manufactured by Schott NYC, including the Perfecto!
The Perfecto motorcycle jacket is the most imitated motorcycle jacket in the world. Introduced in the 1920s, it was the first of its kind and still the best. Due to the tough, heavyweight cowhide leather, these jackets were meant as essential riding gear for bikers. Because of the style and incredible craftsmanship, it didn’t take long to spread over Hollywood. Not simply worn for fashion like many inferior “motorcycle-style” jackets. All of our Schott motorcycle jackets are the real deal.
The Perfecto gained worldwide fame when worn by Marlon Brando in the 1953 movie, “The Wild One”. Popularity continued with musicians and other movie stars like:
- James Dean
- Johnny Depp
- Lady Gaga
- Katy Perry
- The Ramones
- Joan Jett
