As a part of their extensive Americana inspired S/S14 collection, NEIGHBORHOOD enlists the expertise of NYC based outwear label- Schott NYC for an authentic leather piece. Having produced handcrafted jackets in small runs for the better part of the century, the Perfecto riders has remained one of the brands most popular silhouettes and stayed relatively unchanged since its first appearance in 1928. Named after the Schott brothers’ favourite cigar, the Perfecto has been adorned by pop culture icons throughout various generations; most notably- Marlon Brando, James Dean, The Ramones and The Sex Pistols. NBHD offers this durable and rugged piece with subtle changes seen in branded buttons, custom lining and epaulettes along with a slightly slimmer fit all around. Heritage details remain in the 4 ergonomically positioned front pockets, adjustable waist belt and Talon zipper hardware throughout. The result is a piece of American history re-imagined by NBHD for the collector, and leather aficionados alike.
