The first two styles from Greg Chapman's new Perfecto arm of the Schott Company have arrived! Despite Greg's insistance on being British, we like him anyway..... and the Perfecto stuff is absolutely gorgeous.
First up is the Horse Hide "Carney" Jacket: "Mens 1930's inspired delivery/riders jacket. In times of need if a manufacturer ran out of a color they would simply compromise with another, making the two-tone trim authentic to the period."
Two-Tone Black/Brown horsehide. Brass zippers throughout. Brass side buckles. Leather windflap behind zipper. Collar buttons down with hidden snaps. 100% Cotton plaid lining.
This jacket is absolutely gorgeous. $898
Also arrived is the buttery soft Suede Club Jacket, in Tobacco. "From Schott's archives: Featuring knit collar, cuffs and waistband. Inspired by a typical post-war everyman jacket. Added chain pull breast pocket reflects a classic design feature of the time." Lined in 100% cotton plaid. Great color; works well with dark denim or a crisp chino. $598
