Last month, 3sixteen teamed up with Yuketen to create a special Indigo Rocker Ox as part of the NYC-based brand’s 15-year anniversary celebration. Continuing to add to that commemorative lineup, 3sixteen has collaborated with Schott NYC on a new Roughout Perfecto jacket.
Available in an artful black colorway, Schott and 3sixteen’s new Perfecto jacket collaboration takes its design cues from the classic 519 Double Rider silhouette and boasts roughout cowhide leather that Chicago’s Horween Leather company constructed exclusively for this specific piece. For the interior, Schott NYC and 3sixteen have chosen to line the jacket with the same Japanese linen previously used in the latter brand’s Fall/Winter 2018 offerings.
“When we approached Nick Horween to develop this roughout, we told him that we wanted a leather that would wear in beautifully in a different kind of way than smooth side leather,” reads an official statement from 3sixteen. “Roughout is different from suede in that it’s meant to be beaten up and will look better with scuffs and scratches. The leather undergoes a complex vegetable tanning process which imparts tree bark extracts, waterproofing oils, and various waxes to give the leather a beautifully inconsistent look that shows sheen in certain spots and a deep matte color in others. Horween drum dyed the leather to give it a deep black color, and then milled it for a full day for softness and to bring out the nap. Alongside being rugged and weather resistant, this leather is sure to wear in nicely over time. This is not a leather jacket to be babied.”
You can take a look at the Schott NYC and 3sixteen Roughout Perfecto Jacket above. The item is limited to 100 pieces, and carries a retail price of $1,100 USD. Schott NYC and 3sixteen’s new collaboration can be purchased online and various Schott NYC, Self Edge, Blue Owl Workshop, Berkeley Supply, East & West, Mildblend, Standard & Strange, Park & Province, Rivert & Hide, Cultizm and Rivets physical locations.
