Perfecto Model 141 leather jackets for men are made with U. Sourced, chrome-tanned, drum dyed, heavyweight naked leather. This hide has a softer hand when compared to our steerhide and a matte finish. It is chrome tanned and processed to provide many years of use without the need for treatments or conditioners.Right out of the box this jacket will feel like it was custom made for you. Schott NYC uses heavyweight naked cowhide to help your leather jacket become your second skin. Motorcycle jackets need to be as tough as the people wearing them. For wind protection and added warmth the 141 features an inside wind flap under the main zipper, a zip out pile lining and zippered sleeve cuffs.
Our bi-swing back panels and under arm footballs ensures that this jacket moves with you eliminating that restrictive feel often found with other leather motorcycle jackets. Nickel plated brass hardware complete this timeless American made classic that is built to last a lifetime. As with all Perfecto leather jackets, Schott only uses the best, highest quality leather available. In the same tradition started in the late 1920s, highly skilled workers hand-cut each panel for the model 141.
Schott sells this leather jacket model true to size, if you wear a 42 suit jacket simply order a size 42 and you will even have room for a sweatshirt underneath for those colder days. Of course this is just our best recommendation, as always we suggest you carefully check our sizing diagrams and measurements to determine best fit. The Schott Perfecto Model #141 is still proudly made in the U. Our customers know that the quality and construction of our jackets are unparalleled. From the heavyweight thread we use to the strong American hands that do the crafting.We build our leather motorcycle jackets to the same indestructible standards as the old style leather medicine balls. One-hundred plus years of being the best is your assurance that Schott Brothers stands behind every jacket we make. HISTORY: The Cafe Racer leather jacket design that became mainstream in the 1960's was developed in England. As soldiers were returning home after WWII they caught the bug of souping up older, prewar motorbikes. These motorcycles were raced between local pubs and cafes which created the need for a streamlined, minimalist leather racing jacket. Traveling at times in excess of 100 MPH was a fairly dangerous proposition on the roads that were more like trails at the time. Heavy horsehide and of course a strong main zipper added a certain level of protection for these speed happy daredevils.
One would imagine there were wagers made and records set during these early cafe racing days. Schott Brothers has produced a café racer leather motorcycle jacket since we produced model 666 RS for Beck in 1956. Schott also marketed our own racing jacket as the Perfecto model 641XX. In the early days these leather jackets had symmetrical zippered pockets on the chest, an adjustable snap collar strap and zippered sleeve cuffs.As they were worn and abused many examples found today are missing any signs of the original inside linings. Rooted in tradition, the Schott Model 141 continues this cafe racer style from the 50's. Based on these early leather motorcycle jacket café racer designs the 141 has changed ever so slightly. We feel our updates have made a legendary design better and even more versatile. Schott continues production of the Café Racer motorcycle jacket style, as always, right here in the U. A, with a Schott family member hands on in the factory every single day.
