Schott NYC (Schott Bros) located in New York USA, was founded in 1913 by brothers Irving and Jack Schott. They were the first company to put a zipper on a jacket, created the classic Perfecto biker jacket, and made clothing for the US Armed Forces during WWII. Schott is still owned by the Schott family and still manufacture much of their clothing in the United States.
ThIs Vintage 70s era Schott Perfecto Jacket is nothing short of Iconic. Worn by the likes of the world renowned punk band 'Ramones', this jacket has earned it’s iconic status due to it’s rebellious characteristics. It’s the body armour of punk for when you're out on stage ripping into some jaw dropping chords. A jacket not to be sniffed at.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general heavy signs of wear, abrasion/ scuff marks and some paint marks. The jacket is missing the star embellishments on the epaulettes however this does not detract from the character of the jacket.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
