Schott is perhaps the most famous name in the world for motorcycle jackets. The company started making motorcycle apparel in 1915. They created their first motorcycle jacket in 1928. It’s a jacket that is claimed to be the very first to use a central zip. Irving Schott called it the Perfecto, naming it after his favourite cigar. In the 1940s, they made a version called the 613, with a star on each epaulette. The company and the Perfecto shot to fame when Brando wore one in the film, The Wild One.
