Perfecto Brand by Schott Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

Until now, we’ve seen only a small portion of what Schott’s Perfecto Brand will be offering up for Spring 2012. They’ve now gone ahead and released the entire lookbook for next spring, with “Northeastern sporting clubs and railroads serving as the backdrop. The locales are fitting, as vintage Americana remains the root of the line.” The Perfecto jacket will be available in some new fabrics and will work magnificently with the brand’s suede and waxed cotton pieces.

Converse First String | Schott Chuck Taylor All Star Leather Jacket

Converse First String | Schott Chuck Taylor All Star Leather Jacket

Schott and Converse have teamed up for this soon-to-be cult favorite. Schott’s known for their iconic leather motorcycle jackets and Converse’s signature Chucks have been hitting the streets for as long as our parents can remember. After checking out these Chuck Taylors, we’re left to wonder why these two American brands didn’t link up sooner.

Down to the details we go. The sneaker features a heavy-duty rear zip entry, zips under the laces and even features a quilted lining as a moto jacket would. The snaps on the tongue really drive the design of this shoe home. The familiar Chuck Taylor All Star patch is right where you’d find it at the ankle in a matching rugged black leather finish. The Schott logo’s sewn on the interior.

Freshness tells us this shoe is the latest from Converse First String, the elite subdivision at the company, and they will be available at First String locations on December 15th.
