Schott's heritage is a true-blue, real-deal, piece of Americana. The iconic styles produced by hand for over 100 years have become infused in American culture and have served as battle flags for the American spirit.

The subsequent spike in popularity of the Perfecto®surprisingly resulted in decreased sales.

Just one year later, the Perfecto®was catapulted to the height of its popularity when a love for speed ended the life of the quintessential hoodlum. It is said that James Dean could hardly ever be seen without his Perfecto®.
