Schott,” the oldest leather jacket brand in the U.S. that has moved the history of the riders’ jacket

Schott is a leather jacket brand founded in New York in 1913 by brothers Irving Schott and Jack Schott as Schott Bros. Today, Schott’s image is completely rooted in riders’ jackets, but in the beginning, the company surprisingly manufactured raincoats. Around 1918, after World War I, the main products changed to leather items, and to meet the needs of the then increasing sports and recreation population, the company launched the ” PERFECTO ” series of casual jackets and coats in 1928.

This was the prototype for SCHOTT’s riders’ jackets and the beginning of the PERFECTO series, the world’s first front-zipper type riders’ jacket. At a time when button-down riders were the norm, the zipper type attracted attention as an innovative specification, and had a major impact on the subsequent history of riders’ jackets.

The one-star became very popular among the delinquents of the time after the release of the famous movie ‘ The Wild One,’ which is said to have had a tremendous impact on the history of biker fashion. It was so powerful that school organizations across the U.S. banned students from wearing riders’ jackets, and this movement caused a temporary decline in sales of the shot.

Soon after, however, they became all the rage among rock ‘n’ roll-loving street kids, cementing the one-star’s existence. It was recognized as an icon not only of biker fashion but also of rock fashion, and in the 1970s, punk rock musicians such as the Ramones and the Sex Pistols were all fans.

Even at Pitti Womo, which is filled with men dressed in their own one-of-a-kind clothing, we could see men wearing fashionable one-star outfits combined with current items.

Details inherited from many double riders, such as the leather tab on the zipper, which is designed to be easy to grip even with gloves on, and the flap-type coin pocket located on the lower left side of the body, are inherited from the model of the 1950s when it was first introduced.

Charm of SCHOTT’s “One Star” (3) “Durable and thick steerhide

The material used for the current One Star is durable, thick-fleshed steerhide. Steerhide is leather from bulls that have been castrated between 3 and 6 months of age and have grown for at least 2 years. It is characterized by its durability and uniform thickness, and is thicker and stronger than calf, kip, and other leathers from cattle less than 2 years old. When you put your arm through it for the first time, you will feel its hard and chunky quality, but as you wear it, it becomes softer and more comfortable to your body, gradually fitting you better. The material changes over time, and the enjoyment of nurturing it is another point that tickles men’s hearts.

This is the basic of the current One Star! 613US” updated for the Japanese

Here is a resized model of the original One-Star, the ” 613,” arranged to fit the Japanese body shape. If a Japanese wearer were to wear the original One Star as is, they would tend to feel like they were being worn by a jacket due to its US-specification size. This model, however, has been adjusted to fit the Japanese body shape, resulting in a sleek look that does not give the impression of being too fussy due to the inappropriate sizing. Inevitably, the waist appears higher, which is a nice feature that improves the appearance of the style. The sturdy steer hide and the vintage look and feel make this a piece of clothing that looks great even when worn over a T-shirt.
