Schott are based in New York City and have been producing all American classic motorcycle clothing since 1913. Most of their jackets are made in the USA for that added authenticity. Company founder Irving Schott created the very first leather motorcycle jacket in 1928 and dubbed it The Perfecto, so named after his favourite cigar. The Perfecto has since become an all American classic. Marlon Brando wore one in the the 1953 movie The Wild Ones and the Perfecto has been seen on American icons such as Bruce Springsteen, The Ramones, Blondie and James Dean. Schott's motorcycling heritage is undisputed and if you're after that classic leather, look no further than Schott NYC.
