I think I just landed the deal of the century!!
I just got my latest feebay purchase in the mail the other day!! Its a mid 90s Schott Perfecto model 118. Lightly used and just barely broke in. Those of you who know what these jackets are and the history behind this company,know these jackets aren't cheap. This is a holy grail of sorts for me, Ive have always wanted a jacket that would outlast me and Schott seemed to fit the bill, but could never pull the trigger with what they cost. I have had several cheaper versions of this style jacket (even the old Dur-o-Jac line from Schott) and only got a few years out of them. I also wanted a jacket that I could build a history in and then pass it on to my daughter,as my Dad passed his leathers on to me.(a 60s era Buco).
So,that said,I landed this baby for 80 bucks!! I'm so excited over this I just had to tell someone!! (my wife will have the opportunity to roll her eyes at me later )
