Founded in 1913 by brothers Irving and Jack Schott, Schott NYC is an American original. In 1928, the brand debuted the Perfecto® leather motorcycle jacket, named after Irving Schott’s favorite cigar and characterized by its asymmetrical placket and rugged, functional appearance. Worn throughout the 20th century by the likes of Marlon Brando, James Dean, The New York Dolls and The Sex Pistols, the jacket is a timeless cultural icon synonymous with the rebellious American free spirit. Still owned and run by the Schott family, the brand continues to manufacture the Perfecto® by hand in Union, New Jersey.
The HAVEN / Schott NYC Perfecto® builds on this distinguished history with subtle modern updates and a contemporary fit. At the chest is a D-Pocket borrowed from the original 1928 Perfecto® Jacket. On the D-pocket is a press stud flap pocket and at the left sleeve is a re-positioned zip pocket with chain pull. At the inside is a Japanese cotton shadow plaid lining with woven HAVEN and heritage Schott NYC Perfecto® labels at the collar. Finishing the jacket is a belted waist and diamond quilted rear hem panel with woven HAVEN label. Made in USA.
The HAVEN / Schott NYC Perfecto® Jacket will release in-stores at HAVEN Toronto and HAVEN Vancouver on November 15th at 11:00 AM local time and online at 11:00 AM EST.
