The Prohibition-Era Leather Jacket
Here’s a dispatch from biker history: when Schott rolled out their now-classic Perfecto jacket, it was the first zippered leather jacket anyone had ever seen. Which means all the biker jackets before then were a little more…peacoaty.
Kind of like this, in fact. This is Schott’s best approximation of the 20s-era moto jacket (give or take a few zipper pockets), arriving with the rest of their spring/summer ’12 gear. Of course, we’re still partial to that legendary zipper, but if you’re looking for an offbeat twist, it could be just the thing.
Maybe it’s more of a Vespa jacket…
