"Our customers asked for a lighter, trimmer asymmetrical leather biker jacket and we answered with the Perfecto model 626. As easygoing as a second skin yet incredibly durable, this 26” long motorcycle jacket was designed for warmer weather riding or casual trouble—your choice.
As with all Perfecto leather jackets, Schott only uses the best, highest quality leather available. We hand-cut the leather panels from the same soft, chrome tanned, drum-dyed and practically indestructible cowhide leather as our other Perfecto jackets, but the hide is slightly lighter in weight (2.5 to 3 ounces). This leather breathes well and breaks in quick and easy, and our time-honored tradition of tanning and processing ensures it will last many years without needing treatments or conditioners.
Schott designed the 626 without underarm footballs, allowing a tighter fit for that classic bold and streamlined look that looks good anywhere. For wind protection and added warmth the 626 features an asymmetrical main zipper, attached belt, zippered sleeve cuffs and a durable 100% cotton flannel lining sewn into the body of the jacket. The bi-swing back panels give you that extra range of motion so you won’t feel restrained in your jacket. The collar and shoulder epaulets are designed in the traditional 1940s style but the twist is that these epaulets have no stars. If you look closely at the snap down lapels, you will find that the snaps are custom embossed, another detail that shows how far we’ll go to construct jackets of unparalleled quality. Nickel plated brass hardware completes this timeless American-made classic that is built to last a lifetime."
Leather Type, Fit and Construction:
Schott NYC uses this semi aniline cowhide 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 added protection while riding on your classic motorbike or out on the town. For wind protection and added warmth the 626 features an attached belt, zippered sleeve cuffs and a durable 100% cotton flannel lining sewn into the body of the jacket. Nickel plated brass hardware complete this timeless American made classic that is built to last a lifetime.
In the same tradition used in the 50's, highly skilled workers hand-cut each panel for the 626. In keeping with their original custom style, Schott designed this jacket to fit tighter than most for that classic bold and streamlined look. We suggest you carefully check our sizing diagrams and measurements to determine best fit. The Schott Perfecto Model #626VN is 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."
