    I just got my new jacket, a vintage Schott Perfecto One Star in New Old Stock conditions. The label is the one used in these jackets from late 50s to mid 60s. It's size 40 (luckily my size). The condition is stunning, only some creases on right sleeve due to nearly 60 years of storing but no traces of use in the lining, inside hems, collar, elbows, etc. Its only drawback is a bit of "old" smell, no mold on the jacket but some of that "long stored in a closet" smell taht I hope to be able to get rid of (any hint about this is very welcome by the way). Now it is outside getting some fresh air.
    Here is a few pic for your review:

    What's up Doc?
    Nice jacket!
    Do you have a bike to go with the jacket?
    If so, what do you ride?

    Looks good and fits you well, great find! I've a much later one, from late 90's that I bought when in NYC but rarely wear it, it weighs a ton!!

    Nice find! That looks to be in great shape. Some airing outdoors should help. If that doesn't do it, you could try putting the jacket in a dry cleaning bag with some baking soda in the bottom of it for a few days.

    A beauty! I have a much later version which I picked up cheap, one of my favourites. Hanging it up outside is as good a way as any to get rid of smells, it's worked for me in the past.

    It's not a vintage Schott but I've had this one for the last 25 years. Gave up the bike about a year ago ,but kept the jacket
