Schott for Barneys New York F/W 2010-2011 – Mine!

March 12, 2011 Fashion, Style 1 Comment

Picked up a new motorcycle jacket.

It’s from the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Collection.

When I saw it, I had to have it. Produced by world-famous Schott Brothers for Barneys New York, this jacket exudes cool luxury. Its shape is classic, and its build quality is apparent. Still, what had me whipping out the American Express were the details and features that diferentiated it from the standard Perfecto. 

For one, there is no belt to fasten the waist; this gives it a much cleaner appearance, at least in the front. Instead, this jacket can be cinched by side leather laces. There is also a kidney back extension.

Also, the jacket is lined with plaid cotton and features a leather tag for Barneys on the inner chest pocket.

However, what really appealed to me was the D-pocket on the left side of the jacket, a design feature borrowed from military jackets during the world wars. It was originally purposed to carry a gun or a map..  In any case, it just looks cool.

This is my second Schott jacket, (my first is a vintage brown 618 Perfecto) and it sure won’t be my last.

Cheers!
