Perfecto Original Motocycle Jacket

In 1913, two brothers, the sons of a Russian immigrant, pursued the American dream and started their own manufacturing company in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Irving Schott designed the first leather motorcycle jacket in 1928. He named it the Perfecto after his favorite cigar. At that time, its retail price was $5.50 at a Long Island Harley-Davidson distributor.
