Schott is a US based company that have been consistently turning out some of the greatest looking and most iconic jackets ever made by the hands of man. Springsteen loves them, Brando wore them and they’re all made by hand in the USA. That should be enough for anyone.
This jacket, officially named the Men’s Steerhide Leather Cafe Racer Motorcycle Jacket is based on the Horsehide Perfecto Jacket though a number of extraneous zippers have been removed leaving a much more subtle jacket that’d probably better suit British motorcyclists.
