Schott NYC Casual Racer Leather Jacket, black cherry, model 654, size M
This jacket is a current model (style 654, black cherry color, medium size) and is in excellent, pre-owned condition. There is a small, superficial scratch on the right sleeve near the wrist (see photo) but the lining is perfect. Schott NYCs slim-fitting Leather Café Racer Motorcycle Jacket gives a tip of the hat to 1950s iconic jackets worn by English soldiers back from WWII. These speed-happy daredevils began souping up older, prewar motorbikes and racing them at top speed between local pubs and cafés. One can only imagine the wagers bet and lost during those late-night races on twisted, narrow roads.
Out of this restlessness rose the need for a jacket that was durable and streamlined, and decades later that call has been answered. Schott remodeled the classic Perfecto motorcycle jacket with a minimalist contour in mind, adding a mandarin-style upright collar and designing the arms to fit tightly from shoulder to zippered cuffs. The result is a no-frills, refined look that you can take to the open road for a warm weather ride, out for a night on the town, or both.
