Women’s and men’s real leather jackets are a trend that never dies. Since its creation, it has grown and nowadays everyone has at least one men’s real leather jacket. Throughout the years’ men’s real leather jackets were interpreted in many ways and they had many looks that evolve to the fashion that we know now. But did you know who were the first people to wear men’s real leather jackets?
The men’s real leather jackets date back from World War One. In the beginning of the 20th century, the men’s real leather jackets were primarily worn by aviators as a flight coat. The original models of the men’s real leather jackets were tailored brown in color, but soon after that they could’ve been found in black as well. They were used in World War Two as well, because of their many advantages, like the fact that they can provide isolation from the cold and keep the person warm. Actually men’s real leather jackets were worn by bombers because they secured them from the extreme climate condition, that they had to experience when flying in high altitudes. The men’s real leather jackets were also a part of the uniform of Russian military personnel during the Russian Civil War.
Of course at some point the men’s real leather jacket started to be a very desired article of clothing of many. In 1928 the brothers Irving and Jack Schott introduced for the first time the men’s real leather jackets on the free market. Sons of a Russian immigrant, they pursued the American Dream. In the beginning the Schott brothers started with tailoring raincoats. After a few years Irving Schott tailored the first men’s real leather jacket and actually branded it with the name of his favorite cigars – Perfecto. This is why many people believe that actually this is the name of the first men’s real leather jacket.
Revolutionizing the men’s real leather jackets
Just a couple of years after the introduction of the Perfecto, the Schott brothers have drastically changed the way Americans dress. One of the thing that actually helped that process is the fact, that the Schott brothers were the first ones to put a zipper on men’s real leather jackets. Pursuing their dream and creating new fashion trends across America, in 1928 the Schott brother tailored the first motorcycle men’s real leather jacket. It is a result from Irving’s love and passion of the hotrods. And it seems that it wasn’t only his passion.
Motorcycle men’s real leather jackets
The motorcycle men’s real leather jackets were distributed by the famous Harley Davidson’s stores and they became a huge hit in only a couple of years.

This is actually the first movie about motorcycles, that gets worldwide recognition. This is why the boom of men’s real leather jackets after its premier is easily explained.
