Schott Cafe Racer Motorcycle Men's Leather Jacket Waxed Black Perfecto 530
The Schott Cafe Racer Cowhide Leather Motorcycle Jacket in Waxed Black is a timeless American made classic. Designed as a retro version of the popular Model 141, the main differences include: vintage style open zippered sleeve cuffs, sewn in cotton flannel lining, and the use of a full aniline, drummed (pebbled) cowhide leather. Perfecto Model 530 leather jackets for men are made with chrome-tanned, drum dyed, plump & spongy hides. You will find this jacket to be very comfortable to wear the moment you first try it on! This leather is made with an oil and aniline finish that gives a rustic old look and a soft “hand," and the added benefit of stain resistance. As with all of Schott’s high quality leathers, this medium weight cowhide is tanned and processed to provide many years of use without the need for treatments or conditioners.
Fit Note: In keeping with their original custom style, Schott designed this jacket to fit tighter than most for that classic bold and streamlined look. Also please note that the absence of underarm footballs combined with Schott’s tighter cut arms make this a slim fitting jacket.

"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.
Rooted in tradition, the Schott Perfecto Model 530 continues this cafe racer style from the 50's. Based on early racer designs the 530 has changed a bit but the overall concept remains the same. Design a tight fitting, no frills mens leather jacket with a cool, refined look. We feel our Café Racer’s accomplished this and make a profound statement. Schott continues production of the classic Café Racer motorcycle jacket style, as always, right here in the U.S.A." (Schott NYC)
