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.
The Schott navy peacoat is made from wool and nylon with a classic double breasted style. There are 10 anchor buttons down the front, two vertical external pockets, two inside pockets and a quilted lining.
